This was probably one of the best places I have stayed in New York. Great size rooms for the city, ideal location and great rates. I loved the breakfast in the morning and the wine receptions seemed to be a hit. Everyone was friendly and I would stay there again next trip.

I stayed at Hotel Giraffe with my parents during Easter Holidays. We chose this hotel thanks to Tripadvisor's reviews. Staff was very kind, our room was spacious enough for three, very clean and comfortable. We had the Superior One Bedroom Suite, one of the best rooms with view on Park Av. South. There was one bedroom, a full size sleeper... More

Look out for the small print associated with the lowest "pre-paid" rate....make sure your plans are fully baked or you won't get your money back. I used to like this hotel but the management is making it hard for me to continue to do so. My assistant made a reservation for me but my plans changed at the last minute... More

Very nice place to stay - friendly, easy access to many things, and comfortable. The only thing I could say that would be negative is the cost of the room.....as I was checking in, people who walked in off of the street got a cheaper rate than I received, having made a reservation in advance. I don't think that customers... More

I really enjoyed our stay here. Park Ave is rather noisy, so don't expect complete silence in your room. Subway stop is near (but only local 6 trains stop there). No restaurant, but I can highly recommend the mexican restaurant next to the hotel (very stylish, excellent value). The staff has been incredibly helpful and friendly. The breakfast is pretty...

Lovely hotel. We found the location great as being right in the centre you could get to both down and up town easily. Our room was huge, clean and had everything we needed (we stayed in a king room). The staff were always friendly and helpful, and on our first evening a bottle of wine was delivered to our room... More

We stayed at the Hotel Giraffe for two weekend nights. It was outstanding in all ways. Our room was a good size, with very nice furnishings and amenities. Our small balcony looked out on Park Avenue, but the room was very quiet with the doors closed. The continental breakfast was very good and the evening wine and cheese reception was... More

I just stayed at Hotel Giraffe for the second time and I really enjoyed my stay on both occasions. The staff is friendly and always helpful. The location is great and it is always clean. My daughter lives in New York and I visit every few months and i will continue to stay at The Hotel Giraffe.
