The Charles Hotel - Boston, MA

It's not the most gussied-up nook, but as the saying goes, "Don't judge a book by its cover." Or in this case, a book collection by its setting. With personally signed biographies from, ahem, former guests such as David Mamet and Hillary Clinton, the library at The Charles is an integral component of the hotel's tagline, "The Smart Place to Stay." If the chairs aren't cozy enough to suit, you're welcome to take a book up to your room.
