Spent 2 days in Manhattan visiting our son and close family. The Hotel Giraffe was in a perfect location for us to walk to restaurants and parks. The staff was extremely helpful even before our arrival answering questions, suggesting restaurants and making difficult to obtain brunch reservations. BTW they were excellent suggestions! Dinner at Bread and Tulips was also very... More

Very central to so much & after breakfast in their Lobby Cafe well equipted to absorb all on offer in Manhattan. Loved the Highline, the grand art nouveau buildings such as the Villard Houses, & the atmosphere of Greenwich Village & L'il Italy...plus... More

Friends recommended this and I decided to try it even though it was a bit more upmarket than what I would usually stay in. The service has been excellent, the rooms are clean and very comfy and QUIET. There is a complimentary continentalish style breakfast that is all I needed as well as an espresso machine with fresh fruit &... More

Honestly, We can not fault anything about this hotel. The King Bed Room with balcony, has been very comfortable for our 7 night stay. The service level has been noticeably outstanding both in the room cleaning, the evening bed turn down service, front desk, and in the lobby lounge, for both breakfast and the evening free wine and nibbles.

This has become my fave hotel in NYC!!! Pretty room with a good size, friendly staff, wine reception and breakfast! Loved the bathroom, too. Small & cozy - everything was perfect!!! I've been to NYC over 30 times, andI usually stay with the Hilton group. However, I will definitely look for this in my future trips. Can't resist this charm... More

Hotel Giraffe has become my favorite midtown hotel. My husband and I have stayed there several times in the past couple of years. The rooms are extremely comfortable, modern, and always clean thanks to the hotel's great housekeeping staff. The management and front desk personnel are courteous and friendly, and always there to help us with instructions and recommendations for... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Giraffe. The location is very convenient for walking everywhere. There are good restaurants nearby. The subway is not too far. It was kind of cool to use a typical NY gym on the 23rd st. We found the rooms pleasant. The decoration is a matter of taste so I will not comment on this.... More

What a great hotel. After seeing the reviews left by others I decided to book this hotel for our anniversary. The staff is very accommodating and pleasant. Our room was on an upper floor with balcony. Having a room with a balcony in the city adds a whole different experience. Very clean and comfortable. We are no stranger to staying... More

Recently stayed at the Giraffe on two separate occasions in July. Brilliant accommodation, facilities and service. The provision of tea and coffee, snacks and fruit AND wine and cheese in the lounge made the stay even better. The service from the reception and lounge staff was most courteous and efficient. The reception area is clean and comfortable as are the... More
