Travel + Leisure’s Melissa Locker, in a recent article, features 12 hotels that are “sure to appeal to wandering bookworms.” A sampling of hotels included in the article:

Taj Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad, India – “There are so many volumes in the Palace library that, as the hotel’s website points out, you would have to read a book a day for more than 16 years to go through the entire collection.”

Sylvia Beach Hotel, Newport, Oregon – “Each room at the literature-themed hotel is inspired by a particular classic or contemporary author including Agatha Christie, Mark Twain, J. K. Rowling, Dr. Seuss, John Steinbeck, Shakespeare, Jules Verne, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Gertrude Stein.”

The Library Hotel, Koh Samui, Thailand – “This chic boutique resort boasts a sleek, minimalist library filled with books perfect for reading poolside at the property’s trademark red pool or at the idyllic Chaweng Beach, which is just steps away.”

The Gladstone, Flintshire, North Wales. “The Gladstone is adamantly not a hotel but rather a library that happens to offer accommodation to its patrons.”

The Library Hotel, New York, NY – “Each of the rooms on the boutique hotel’s ten floors is decorated based on different sections of the Dewey Decimal System (think Mythology, Technology, Oceanography, or Love; the latter comes with a selection of books curated by noted sex researcher Dr. Ruth Westheimer).”
