Henry Kallan, founder of the unique boutique Library Hotel in New York City and owner of three other New York City hotels, one hotel in Toronto and the Aria Hotel Prague and Budapest, received the top prize in the category of spa and wellness at the event held in London, which focuses on unique and creative hotels, the announcement said. Henry Kallan also received the award for Americasʼ Best City Boutique Hotel 2015 for his Library Hotel, sister hotel of Aria, located in New York City, the announcement added.

“When we figured out 15 years ago that we will build a hotel, which also nurtures a library of 6,000 books, many people laughed at us. Since then, it turned out that culture and traveling complete each other well,” Kallan said after the presentation of the awards.
