Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB that asks you to muse about one of several “bookish” questions… or, you can just ramble on about anything you like that pertains to books! You can join in by clicking the graphic above. Go ahead–it’s fun!
Here’s my musing for this week–
I love looking for bookish destinations (check my post here about the Library Hotel in NYC!) and I recently found another wonderful one online—the Sylvia Beach Hotel in Nye Beach, Oregon. Billed as “truly a hotel for book lovers”, this unique inn features guest rooms in three categories—“Classics” featuring the best views, “Bestsellers”, which are the most plentiful, mid-priced accomodations, and “Novels”, which are the least expensive rooms. Each room’s décor is based on an author, such as Agatha Christie, Dr. Seuss, Ernest Hemingway, Amy Tan, JK Rowling, and more!
The 27-year-old hotel also features a library/reading room (if you’re the last one to leave at night, please turn off the lights!), a restaurant called Tables of Content, and even a hotel cat! There are no phones, TVs or radios in the rooms, but there are plenty of books! The hotel overlooks the water (most rooms have a beach view) and it seems like a wonderful place to spend time either alone or with a loved one–as well as a fabulous spot to get lost in a book. . . or two. . . or more!
I really have no plans to go to Oregon anytime soon, but if I ever do, the Sylvia Beach Hotel seems like a perfect haven for this booklover!
How about you? Have you traveled to any bookish destinations? Please share!
(Disclaimer–I have no affiliation with this hotel–it just seems really cool!)
