I had a very nice experience at Hotel Giraffe. It's a boutique hotel, but without the pretentiousness of many such hotels in NYC. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The rooms are clean and decently sized (and have nice high ceilings). Even the continental breakfast is better than most. Recommended.

It was my third or fourth time staying in this charming yet elegant hotel. You can not beat great and consistent service. I do not know how they do it, staff is always pleasant, friendly and ready to help. My room was spotless, and I just love the chocolate they give you at night on your bedside. Breakfast is always...

Hotel Giraffe is an amazing find in a city full of hotel options. This trip included my husband, who had meetings in the city, and myself. I did quite a bit of online research before I booked with Hotel Giraffe, and was not disappointed. The location is perfect. The rooms are very nice - great bathrobes and slippers, flat-screen television... More

We stayed at the Hotel Giraffe for the St. Patrick's day weekend. The staff was very friendly, and the ammenities great. They offer a free continental breakfast each morning, wine and cheese in the afternoon. It happened to be not so nice weather that weekend and the doorman passed out umbrellas at the front entrance to anyone who requested one.... More

My friend and I have just returned for a week long stay in the Hotel Giraffe and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The staff were friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was a definite bonus, each morning they offered a tastey selection of pastries, various types of bagels as well as fresh fruit and coffee - although you had... More

After travelling 8 hours to arrive in NYC. I brought in my Orbitz confirmation for a reservation. The cold response at the front desk was sorry we just booked our last room. They told me I could pay for a cab togo to their sister hotel and that hotel would would be happy to offer me a room for $60.00... More

I can't recall how we stumbled upon the Hotel Giraffe (and at a good price!), but I'm glad we did. It's on our list for places to consider next time we're in NYC. The hotel looks so slight and discreet from the outside, but there's plenty of seating in the lobby and breakfast, beverages, and snacks for all to enjoy.... More

After years of staying in New York's business hotels, I've started trying the smaller places and the Hotel Giraffe was perfect! I got a great rate on a suite over a Saturday night. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were large, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Most importantly, the place had some character. Conveniently located to both Midtown... More

I love this hotel. Free breakfast, free happy hour, and a small balcony. It doesn't get any better than that in New York. A welcome respite from charmless business hotels.
