A Writer’s Fantasy: Valentine’s Day for Bibliophiles

If the wish your heart is making is for a happily ever after or a storybook fantasy, you might think of booking your Valentine’s night at New York City’s Library Hotel within a short hand-in-hand jaunt to Bryant Park’s uber-romantic ice skating rink (The Pond). Proposed for Valentine’s Day are not one, but two Cupid-certified packages.

If pink and pretty is more your style, Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne, Pink roses & petals turndown, and Charbonnel’s pink champagne truffles set the mood in a room brimming with books on L’amour.

Behind door number two lives the Erotic Literature Room whose namesake package lights the lusty fires with a chilled bottle of Prosecco upon arrival, a dozen Red Roses, Strawberries, and a bowl of whipped cream, the Kama Sutra Love Essentials Package: this irresistible set of Kama Sutra’s all-time favorites includes a sprinkling of sweet, edible Honey Dust, and plenty more where that came from. Bonus for those of you who book and pre-pay in advance–20% off all of your package goodies. One cannot live on love alone (two… maybe).  For dining and dessert that won’t get you too far from your love nest, try Mediterranean brasserie Pera, just around the corner from the Library Hotel. The Library Hotel 299 Madison Ave. @ 41st St. (212) 204-5417 www.libraryhotel.com
