The Appeal of Staying in a Library

Normally your definition of sexy doesn’t include the Dewey Decimal System, though the air of rich mahogany and leather bound books do give a certain touch of sophistication. Welcome to the Library Hotel near Grand Central Station in New York City decorated with 6,000 volumes of books.
