    There is much to love about this luxury tropical hotel, including prime real estate on the shores of the Indian Ocean. But for book-loving visitors, the hotel’s library is worth tearing away from the beach.

    Not many hotels have a literary curator on staff, but the Heathman Hotel needs one to help oversee the property’s growing collection of books. Situated in the heart of downtown Portland, Oregon, the hotel houses a lending library that specializes autographed editions (the collection includes more than 2,700 books signed by Nobel Prize and Pulitzer Prize winners, U.S. Poet Laureates, a former United States president, and other authors who have stayed at the hotel).

    Set in a restored 15th-century villa in the gem-like town of Fiesole, which sits in the hills above Florence, Il Salviatino features 12 acres of impeccably landscaped grounds, 19th-century frescoes, a museum’s worth of art, sweeping views of Florence, a kitchen that puts out a steady stream of four-star food, and an incredible library for resting after a big pasta lunch.

    The Gladstone is adamantly not a hotel but rather a library that happens to offer accommodation to its patrons. The Gladstone library’s collection features over 250,000 volumes; in Wales it’s second only to the National Library of Wales. Their illustrious reading rooms are outfitted with armchairs for those looking to curl up with a good book and desks for those who want to write their own (and plenty of patrons have done just that).

    If you are yearning to see the Metropolitan Museum of Art, don’t stay at New York City’s Library Hotel because chances are you’ll never leave the grounds. 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).
