But until then: I found a reference to someone using the Dewey Decimal System to categorize entries in their weblog, followed a user's comment about the system being a protected trademark owned by OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc., followed that to a report on OCLC suing The Library Hotel. (Hmm, an example which helped both parties, since they both might benefit from my attention having been drawn to their existences!)
The Library is conveniently located on Madison, Avenue and 41st Street, also known as Library Way, just steps away from the majestic New York Public Library, Bryant Park, Pierpont Morgan Library, the exquisitely renovated Grand Central Terminal and all that Midtown Manhattan has to offer.
Designed to feel more like a private club than a hotel, each of the Library's richly appointed accommodations are individually adorned with art and a collection of books that relate to the room's unique theme. Personal service goes one step further as guests may request their room based on their personal interests (subject to availability) such as the Literature floor featuring subjects from Poetry or The Classics to Erotic Literature. Such intriguing room themes offered on the Math and Science floor are Astronomy and Botany. Law, Eastern Religion, Money, and New Media are also among the 60 eclectic themes available on the room menu at The Library Hotel. Other distinctive features Library guests have at their disposal include the Executive Inspiration Boardroom on the Penthouse floor, and on the 14th floor, the beautiful mahogany paneled Writers Den with working fireplace and The Poetry Garden, our sparkling greenhouse. Each has French doors leading to an elegant outdoor terrace with seating for fair weather enjoyment. The Writers Den and the Poetry Garden are ideal places to relax alone with a book or host a spectacular social or corporate event. The Reading Room on the 2nd Floor is where guests can find 24 hour refreshments, such as coffee, tea, cappuccino and pastries. Also on the 2nd Floor is the Business Center, available 24 hours, featuring two computers, equipped with hi-speed internet access, and a printer.
