I'm speechless. I cannot even begin to express how shocked I am that TripAdvisor gave this hotel a 3 star class. From a straphanger who has stayed at some of the BEST hotels in the WORLD, the Hotel Giraffe is FOUR STARS. In New York, I have stayed at Le Parker Meridien and the New York Palace, two five star...

Having read a lot of reviews on tripadvisor we settled on this hotel for a 4 night stay over New Years 2005. We were delighted with our choice. Rooms are a very good size for NYC and the complimentary breakfast a nice addition. The complimentary wine and cheese each evening was a great way of starting a night out. All... More

We found the Giraffe to be excellent. The room was very stylish and spacious. Continental breakfast each morning was nice with a good selection to choose from. Location was also great - walking distance to midtown, close to the subway and only a 20 min walk to Greenwich Village. The staff - front desk, bar area, turn down and doorman... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Giraffe. We have stayed there several times, the last time being Oct. 2005 when we felt the service and standards had overall dropped. This time all was excellent! The room looked fresher, the free breakfast was quite good and the service was friendly and efficient. Seemed as if the management was... More

Had a fantastic stay at this hotel. This is our 7th stay in New York and this is by far the best hotel we've stayed in. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the doorman. The room was a good size (for New York) and was very clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast had a good selection to choose... More

We stayed at the Hotel Giraffe last August for a girl's weekend. Rooms were nice. Pretty balconies. Lobby was lovely place to relax after a day of shopping. Piano music and wine from 4-8 pm. Subway stop one street up. I can't wait to return!

My fiancee and I stayed at Hotel Giraffe for four days in mid-March, and we loved every moment of it. The room was spacious, especially for Manhattan. Service was consistently excellent, from the front desk at check-in to the turn-down service (complete with chocolates and soft music on the stereo) each night. The continental breakfast was lovely, and the wine... More

Nice hotel, staff ok and nice rooftop. Room was dirty, stained comforter. Lacks the charm and elegance I usually prefer....feels like a condo rather than a hotel. I loved the neighborhood; walking distance to Midtown, Union Square, and SOHO. Great access to subway lines. Next time, I think I would try the Carlton on Madison Avenue or the W Union... More

We stayed at the Hotel Giraffe the weekend of Feb 10th. We were very pleased. We had a one bedroom suite that was at the end of the hall and very quiet, the number one criteria for a hotel stay for us. The rooms were VERY clean, the beds extremely comfy, the pillows just right, the quilt was down and... More

My husband and I spent a weekend in NYC at the Hotel Giraffe. We lived in NYC for many years, and wanted to find a charming, small hotel instead of one of the big midtown chains. We were both very happy with the Hotel Giraffe. The valet parking was quick, and the bellman and desk people were very polite and... More
