This Sounds Like a Nice Place

Unique Hotel Manhattan | The Library Hotel | New York City: "The Library Hotel NY near Grand Central Station in New York City is the first unique hotel in Manhattan ever to offer its guests over 6,000 volumes of books organized throughout the hotel by the Dewey Decimal System. Each of the 10 guestroom floors honor one of the 10 categories of the DDC, and each of the 60 rooms are uniquely adorned with a collection of books and art exploring a distinctive topic within the category it belongs to."

Hat tip to The List Universe.

They were sued by OCLC a few years ago because OCLC owns the rights to the DDC.

Glad the suit was settled amicably.
