The Rear Library

The Rear Library
BED SIZE(S): 1 queen-size & 1 twin-size daybed
ROOM SIZE: 345 sq. ft.

For your temporary corporate housing or extended stay, look no further than the Rear Library of 1871 House, a set of unique hotel accommodations in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NYC. Two flights above the lobby sits the Rear Library, which exudes a kind of palatial serenity, owing to its spacious size, princess-worthy netting and cream bedding around the queen-size sleigh bed, and an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling books. The south-facing suite gets lots of light through its three lace-clad windows, which overlook a garden and terrace, and the daybed certainly makes one of the more enticing nap spots you will come across. The quiet apartment is positioned in the rear of the building. The beautiful oak parquet floors, the imposing marble fireplace, and the 10-foot ceilings all contribute to the expansive quality of the room. A large Oriental rug, the inviting wrought iron and brass daybed, a bureau, an antique armoire, and a round dining table with three chairs complete the suite’s furnishings.

The Rear Library also includes a compact kitchen with a microwave, toaster, regular ovens, a stove, a coffeemaker, sink, and full-size refrigerator.

The Rear Library’s en-suite bathroom is the most recently renovated in the entire townhouse and consists of a just-rebuilt tiled shower, pedestal sink, and toilet.

Things to note: The Front Library can be booked together with the Rear Library and the two rooms connect to each other via a connecting interior door and hallway through the kitchen. A/C available June-October.  Room includes Panasonic 26″ 720p LCD HDTV with ROKU attachment for streaming your favorite shows or movies on Netflix, Amazon or other available apps. Fireplace is decorative only. Pets and smoking are not permitted. The house is not serviced by an elevator. All suites are accessed via the house’s common staircase.
