The Library Hotel - now that's my idea of a vacation!!!
Each of the ten floors is dedicated to one of the categories of the Dewey Decimal System, while each of the 60 rooms has a mini library themed with a subcategory that ties in with the category of the floor the room is on. Can you picture this? Read on....
"Over 6,000 books organized throughout the hotel based on the Dewey Decimal System and a team of helpful "librarians" are just some of the reasons why the members of TripAdvisor have ranked the Library and all four Library Hotel Collection hotels among the best hotels in New York City. At the Library Hotel, guests are welcome to complimentary wifi and free refreshments 24 hours a day, including a lavish European style breakfast each morning, a complimentary wine and cheese reception each evening from 5pm - 8pm, and coffee, tea, cookies and fruit throughout the day. At the Library each floor is dedicated to one of the ten classifications of knowledge of the Dewey Decimal System, and each room holds art and 25-100 books based on a unique topic within that floor. Room themes range from Mysteries to Fairytales, and from Music to Architecture." (from the website http://www.libraryhotel.com/virtual-tour.html)
