"Honeybee Hotel is a fascinating and heartwarming story of how nature checked into one of New York's most fabled hotels, and everybody was the better for it. Nobody knows the natural world of the city like Leslie Day."

"Like a bee buzzing from flower to flower, Honeybee Hotel takes the reader on a journey from New York City's most storied hotel to a homeless shelter to the inside of a single honeycomb chamber to the ingredients of a Waldorf salad. The through line, of course, is honey. And this beautifully written book is as sweet and delicious as its subject."

"A conversational book that weaves natural history, gardening, New York City history, and food into a whole that both entertains and informs. Leslie Day is obviously an engaged, thoughtful, and curious person with whom the reader will enjoy spending some time. Honeybee Hotel will appeal to gardeners, entomologists, historians, preservationists, foodies, and New Yorkers."

"An engaging story of one of the most interesting buildings in New York City. Using a first-person approach, Leslie Day brings the Waldorf Astoria and its rooftop bees to life. New Yorkers, history buffs, foodies, honeybee lovers, and anybody interested in a good read will adore this book."

"An inside story that will be loved by history buffs, gardening fans, and bee lovers alike."

"[Day] weaves details of the bees' lifecycle with accounts of charity events, interviews with chefs and several pages of Waldorf recipes... Honeybee Hotel is absorbing and readable."
