One less hassle for librarian travelers - New York's Library Hotel

An annoyance that has prevented librarians from visiting New York City is the absence of a good, clean hotel laid out according to the Dewey Decimal system. That, I'm happy to report, is no longer a problem; the "Library Hotel in New York City is the first hotel ever to offer its guest over 6,000 volumes organized throughout the hotel by the Dewey Decimal System.* Each of the 10 guestrooms floors honors one of the 10 categories of the DDC and each of the 60 rooms is uniquely adorned with a collection of books and art exploring a distinctive topic within the category or floor it belongs to."
