[W]e were inspired to go on a hunt for other interesting hotels inspired by books — whether in general, or focusing on a single volume, or even detail. After all, book nerds need someplace cool to stay as much as art nerds do. After the jump, check out ten literary hotels where we’d love to spend the night — up with a book, of course — and let us know if we missed your favorite haunt in the comments.

The Sylvia Beach Hotel, Nye Beach, Oregon
As hotel’s website cheerily warns every visitor, “When you walk up our garden path to the front door the old building will give you a big hug or spit you out, depending on what really matters to you!” Named after the American-born proprietor of the famed Paris bookstore Shakespeare and Company, this hotel is serious about its reading habits — there are no TVs, radios, or telephones in the rooms and no wi-fi. The rooms are split up into Classics, Best Sellers, and Novels (Classics being the most expensive), and are all themed to specific authors — Collete, Mark Twain, Jane Austen, even JK Rowling and Dr. Seuss. Add that to the library wing, and you’re likely to get some reading done here.
