The past week I had the pleasure of touring the Library Hotel Collection in New York City.
The Library Hotel Collection consists of 5 unique boutique hotels in Manhattan: Library Hotel, Hotel Giraffe, Hotel Elysée, Casablanca Hotel and the newest member to this collection is the Aria Hotel in Budapest, Hungary.
The first stop of my hotel tour was Hotel Giraffe.
When I first arrived to the hotel, I arrived with my photographer, Erika Dickstein. We were greeted with warm welcomes by the staff at the front desk. They helped me with my luggage and explained to me the details of the stay. But what I was really excited about was that the hotel offered complimentary continental breakfast and evening wine with cheese events; it’s a great way to mingle with the guests and staff and find out what the hot spots around the area are.
Additional perks include passes to a nearby sports club, meeting and event space, and nightly live music in the lobby. There's also a rooftop garden and a casual restaurant serving Italian food.
Upon entering my room I was greeted by a bottle of wine, compliments of the hotel and the beautiful view of Park Avenue from my balcony.
Each modern room included free WiFi and was styled with modern furniture, unique artwork and working desks with granite tops. iPhone docking stations, stereo systems and spa-inspired bathrooms were also included. Mini-fridges and pillow-top mattresses are available upon request.
Even though my stay was just for one day, I had such a great time and experience! The staff was amazing and so welcoming to all my questions and requests; they made my stay feel like it lasted forever. I look forward to coming back soon.
