At the Library Hotel Collection, we want each of our guests to have the best experience possible while staying with us! We are so fortunate to have four unique properties in New York City, all of which offer our Signature Style of Hospitality to travelers from around the world. We would love to assist you in finding the best hotel for your visit to ‘The Big Apple’, so please don’t hesitate to contact our skilled Guest Service Agents with any questions! You may not have to, though… because if you’re planning an NYC getaway that the entire family will love, look no further than our very own Hotel Giraffe. We’ve already shared how family-friendly this hidden gem is, but their new ‘Not Just 4 Kids’ program is so great we want to shout it from the rooftops. Family travel has never been cooler.

It wasn’t until I moved into a quaint third floor walk up in Williamsburg that that conception had changed for me. The Empire State Building was right there, staring me in the face from my bedroom window. Her ever changing glow was intriguing and quickly became something I couldn’t wait to see every evening.

We’ve shared our Top 5 Indian and French restaurants in NYC, as well as our favorite burgers and food trucks, so we thought this would be a perfect time to dedicate a post to our vegetarian guests!

A very special and unique position demands a very special person to fill the role. For guests at the Aria Hotel, our Musical Director, Kornél Magyar, is an ambassador of music and culture, and all things Hungarian. A perfect fit for the position, even Kornél’s last name means “Hungarian.” As a performing artist and music critic from Hungary, Kornél studies mainly traditional and classical music of India and Indonesia. Since 2001, he has been performing and teaching ethnic music genres, but now as Musical Director, he oversees all musical programming and guest experiences at the hotel. He curates the hotel’s music library collection, uses his relationships throughout the city to liaison partnerships with music venues in the neighboring area and coordinates musical experiences for our guests.
