We enjoyed everything about our stay. This was a family trip prior to my son leaving for college. The king suite was spacious and the beds were very comfortable, including the pull out bed my son slept on. The room was beautiful with a window that opened onto Park Avenue. The breakfast in the morning was perfect before heading out... More

We absolutely love this hotel! It's beautiful, very well managed and has an excellent staff. The amenities are very generous and of high quality. We especially enjoyed having cocktails on the balcony in our room. You will definitely enjoy your stay at Hotel Giraffe, we certainly did!

We had an amazing 4 nights here in a double bedded room for ourselves and 21 year old son. The room was not overly large but the beds were extremely comfortable and the room and bathroom were nicely furnished. We were on the 9th floor which was still noisy (see other reviews) but I had earplugs & the noise wasn't... More

Love this hotel. I also stayed here last summer. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I am very into customer service. The people at the giraffe hotel are the highest on my list. The room was wonderful. I love the location. Close to everything in the heart of the city near the Empire State Building. The breakfast in the morning... More

We stayed in a king mini-suite with balcony overlooking Park Avenue. The rooms were light and airy and very clean. My 15 year old daughter used the pull down sofa bed for the four nights we stayed and she said it was very comfortable. The main bed was massive and also really comfortable, with a vast array of pillows to... More

This is my fourth stay at Giraffe. The service is exceptional & it really is a bargain when you consider the wonderful breakfast, wine & cheese tastings & coffee & snacks available. We had a queen room with a small balcony but asked for a room change due to some construction & view issues. Staff was very gracious & we... More

If you are looking for a great place to stay near mid-town, look no further. We found the Hotel Giraffe to be perfect, yes, perfect, in every way. Their best asset, and the hotel has many, is the staff. From the moment we entered the hotel, to the moment we checked out, we were supported and welcomed by the nicest... More

This was our second stay at this hotel and we were just as impressed as we were the first time we visited in April. From reception to checkout the service was excellent. We were only able to book a smaller room this time, but it meet our needs quite well. It had everything that we wanted including reading lights. Although... More

Stayed for 3 nights in late July. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a balcony room and it was nice to see all the comings and goings on Park Avenue from the 7th floor. Location was good - close to Empire State Building and short walk to the water taxi for downtown (or 2 blocks to subway). The best... More

This hotel does everything right. Friendly service, large clean rooms, and plenty of perks. We really appreciated the snacks and coffee offered during the day and the drinks and snacks in the evening. Also a very nice continental breakfast in the morning. I'm not sure there is a better place to stay in all of NYC. You can pay a... More
