My wife and I spent 4 nights here recently and had a lovely stay. The staff go out of their way to be helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The buffet breakfast in the lobby is really good with cereals, juices, yoghurts, cakes and more and a real espresso machine also and the happy hour every evening is great.... More

I have been an active traveler for a few decades. I have never written a travel review. Mostly because I have not been moved to words for long enough to still want to write about it when I get home. The Hotel Giraffe changed this for me this week. I was in New York on a business trip with some... More

From check-in to departure, very good service and accommodations for a 4 night stay. Staff at all levels was friendly and attentive. Perfect location - walking distance to Union Square or a very close 6 train that accesses all subway lines. Neighborhood is perfect just for wandering; close to Gramercy, Madison Square Park, Union Square, Herald Square, Bryant Park -... More

The Giraffe Hotel was so lovely I can't imagine we would have enjoyed our visit to NYC so much if we hadn't stayed here. A small hotel so you really feel welcomed by the staff who couldn't do enough to help. We stayed with our 16 year old and it worked perfectly that we had a king size bed in... More

A very good boutique hotel. Although I wanted to book the library which was sold out then I had to settle for giraffe but I wasn't disappointed . The library offered free cookies and drinks during the day and cheese and wine later in the evening. My room which was a street view is spacious with a small living room.... More

We absolutely loved our stay at The Giraffe in the first week of July, 2014. From the moment we walked in we felt comfortable here as the staff were welcoming and always pleasant A point of difference for this hotel is the complementary drink they offer every evening- for us a perfect end to our busy days. The lounge hostess... More

Nice European style hotel with continental breakfast, all day coffee and snacks and a really nice roof top sitting area. We stayed on the top floor in the king suite and no balcony was necessary because the roof top patio was right outside our door. Loved the bagels in the morning as well. The location is not perfect (26th and... More

Wow- couldn't wait to write this review about this great place to stay. If you don't want the craziness of Time Square but still be located close to some fantastic restaurants, parks, shopping and transportation, this is the hotel. After researching thru Trip Advisor we chose the Hotel Giraffe and were not disappointed. It is a boutique hotel with a... More

Stayed here during "hotel week" in early January, and consider this hotel in the City. The service was outstanding and staff went out of their way to be helpful, plus there was an afternoon wine and cheese party for guests, great!
