Like to travel but want to stay near books? Try these literary themed hotels.

An interesting article from CNN Travel about hotels inspired by or used by famous authors. The only one I've had the pleasure to stay in is The Library Hotel in NY, a delightful boutique hotel just off Madison Avenue and not far from the NY Public Library main branch on 5th Ave (in front of Bryant Park where there was just a shooting unfortunately).

 

Probably one of the most memorable comments made by an author about a hotel was from Oscar Wilde who, as he lie dying at L'Hotel in Paris, said "either this wallpaper goes or I do." Both Oscar and the wallpaper are long gone now.
