If you’re an avid reader and book lover like we are, you’re always searching for your next big literary adventure. Whether it’s between the pages of a bestseller or just getting lost in a new city, there’s nothing like letting your imagination run wild! New York City is full of iconic literary treasures where you can channel your favorite author while shopping, eating, and even sleeping among books. Ever wonder what “18 Miles of Books” looks like? Then you must check out Strand Bookstore in Union Square. If you’re a Dylan Thomas fanatic, make sure you stop by White Horse Tavern for a shot of whiskey and Minetta Tavern for their burger. Of course, we want you to visit all of the sites listed in your guidebook but when it comes to a book lover’s ideal vacation, Library Hotel Collection is here to help you read between the lines. We’re thrilled to share our favorite places in this “Book lover’s Guide to NYC” and truly hope you’re able to explore each one!
We frequently hear from travelers before they arrive that what they would really love is to plan a unique experience with their loved one. Are you a literary thrill seeker? Are you a hopeless romantic? If you are looking for a unique experience, the Library Hotel Collection offers a unique amenity we like to call, “Love Poems for Two: A Couples Massage for the Mind and Soul.” For $125, about the price of a massage, travelers can enhance their stay by reserving a private poetry workshop with our talented Poet in Residence, Karen Clark. In 90 minutes, you’ll awaken your inner poet and learn the perfect way to express your love for each other by writing a personalized poem your loved one is sure to treasure forever!
If you are wondering if this workshop is something you would like to try, here is an excerpt from Karen’s blog about a session she gave recently with guests at the Casablanca Hotel.
