News & Opinion: Our NYC Hotel Recommendation

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 3:18 AM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Jack and I are in New York City this week. We do a trip each year to see what is going on in the publishing community.

We are staying at a great place on 41st and Madison called The Library Hotel. You can see how the hotel might play to our sensibilities. Each floor is a section of the Dewey Decimal System. I am staying on the Languages floor in the Romantics room. Jack is on the History and Geography floor and staying in the Oceanography room. Each room is stocked with books from the genre.

The rooms themselves are cozy but well appointed. They have a great breakfast. It is also reasonable given the incredible rise in hotel prices over the last couple of years. We recommend The Library Hotel.

P.S. You'll need to request the sixth floor if you want to find business books. Room 600.001 is devoted to advertising and 600.003 will get you management.

P.P.S. Expect more stories from our trip to NYC...
