New York City’s Library Hotel, a member of the Library Hotel Collection, has been recognized as one of the “Best Boutique Hotels” in American Airlines’ Celebrated Living magazine’s 2017 Platinum List Awards. The awards are curated by a list of expert judges and voted on by readers of Celebrated Living, the in-flight magazine for American Airlines passengers in First and Business Class. This year marks the hotel’s first time on the list, and The Library Hotel holds the distinction for being the only New York hotel to make the list of five winning properties in this category.
The Library Hotel is the ultimate book lover’s paradise. Home to more than 6,000 books, each of the ten guestroom floors is dedicated to one of the major classifications of knowledge of the Dewey Decimal System. The 60 well appointed guest rooms have been individually curated with a collection of art and books relevant to one distinctive topic within the category of the floor it belongs including the subjects of the arts, philosophy, religion, technology among others.
“We are incredibly honored to be recognized by such a prestigious panel of judges and Celebrated Living readers,” said Adele Gutman, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Revenue for the Library Hotel Collection. “While the Library Hotel Collection is made up of a diverse group of hotels throughout the world, our number one goal remains the same – to make sure that each guest has a memorable experience that exceeds their expectations.”
The Platinum List Awards issue will be available onboard and online September 1- October 31st. Each of the hotels in Library Hotel Collection is reflective of the creative vision of Henry Kallan, named 2016 “Hotelier of the Year” by the Boutique Hotel and Lodging Association. Other NY city properties in the collection include the Hotel Elysée, home of the renowned Monkey Bar, and inspired by the elegance of a French country estate. Moroccan-themed Casablanca Hotel is an unexpected oasis in the center of the city steps away from Times Square, and Hotel Giraffe is a chic, retro-glam property – both were named “Top Hotels in the US” by TripAdvisor in 2016 and 2017.
