Our room was very clean. Bed was extremely comfortable. There is a shade that comes down and covers the window making it very dark and quiet. Slept like a baby. Rooms have a small lovely balcony. Happy hour at end of day was great as was breakfast in the morning. Took our morning coffee up to the rooftop deck. Staff... More

Hotel giraffe has been one of -if not THE best- hotel experiences we've ever had. From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed and taken care of. Upon hearing it was our 10 year anniversary, the staff kindly sent up a bottle of prosecco to our room. They were wonderful in answering questions and giving us tips as we... More

This is a comfortable hotel, I would give it 4 starts. Accomodations are roomy, clean, decor is ok, beds very comfortable. Bathroom adequate, no frills. The breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres were great, although would be nice to have a non-alcoholic drink besides water and coffee. Doorman, front desk very helpful and friendly. Can say enough about the location. Walk... More

We recently stayed here for 6 days, and we were so impressed by the high level of service, the spotless, comfortable (and large for NYC) room, and the welcoming ambience of the hotel. Loved the wine and cheese and continental breakfasts in the lobby; this extra touch made a big difference. Great location too...convenient to all areas of the city... More

We have stayed at many hotels in NYC, including Trump Central and Soho (~$1,000/night), but was blown away by the customer service and extras we received at such a reasonable cost ($375). Upon arrival, the Valet voluntarily suggested we park in free spot he noted across the street to save $50 and still helped direct traffic, took bags, etc although... More

Picked this hotel and then later had a friend tell me it's the only place she stays in NY and she was bummed I'd found her gem! It was just great - excellent service, loved the wine and cheese, the rooms was large for NY, quiet!, great location. I think staying in NY just got easier for us on our... More

We stayed elsewhere in 2013, as The Giraffe seemed to get a bit expensive, but were delighted to return in 2015. Not much has changed, thankfully. The feel of the place is still great, some of the same people are there. The addition of the roof garden improves. All in all, I hope we will be returning for further visits.

Although our trip to New York City (post-cruise) is not for several months (April), I have spent countless hours "surfing" through the various Trip Advisor reviews - to try to find the "perfect" hotel for our short stay. (good customer service, nice King Suites, not too expensive, highly rated by Trip Advisor reviewers, etc. etc. ) Based on wonderful, complete... More

Nothing's changed, and that's a great thing! We visit once a year and always stay at the Giraffe. In fact, they're so good, they remember our room and always rebook us in it. You can tell allot about a business that retains their employees. The Giraffe seems to keep them all. Friendly and familiar faces are here to greet us... More

Was in NYC on business for less than 24 hours and attending an event at MSG. Chose this hotel based on location and couldn't have been happier! It was walking distance (about 15 min) to MSG and a quick Uber ride to Midtown and Upper East/West side. Small hotel with BIG personality. Many great eateries withing walking distance and of...
