My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel having read previous comments on trip advisor and as the title says, it certainly lived up to all the positive comments.
The hotel was in a prime location just a few blocks from the Empire State and Times Square. We stayed in room 902 which was on the 9th floor and was high enough that street noise from traffic was hardly heard. The room was spacious, well furnished and very comfortable which was just what was required after a full day of shopping and sightseeing.
The staff were always very cheerful and very helpful and at all times very professional.
Having breakfast in the morning was good with plenty of choices and in the evening, the wine and cheese and crudités was a nice way to either end the day or start the evening.
Since we booked this hotel, we notice that it has gone to number three on trip advisor which fully reflects our stay. We would most certainly stay at the hotel giraffe again and we have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone planning a trip to the big apple.
