10 of the World’s Greatest Hotels Inspired by Literature

The Library Hotel, New York City

Though it’s not inspired by any one book, we love the concept of this hotel, whose tagline is “a thought provoking experience.” The library’s collection of books (and of rooms, mind you) is organized by the Dewey Decimal system. Each floor has a different theme — Language, Literature, History, Philosophy — and each room on that floor is its own topic within that theme. So room 500.004 is Botany, and room 500.003 is Zoology (also worth noting: room 500.005 is Dinosaurs). For anyone who ever dreamed of sleeping in the library, this hotel is for you.
