We stayed at the Giraffe for one night and had a very nice stay. The really nice touch which the Giraffe did well was the breakfast selection in the morning which was very relaxed and also afternoon cheese and wine. Only negative was that lounge area was quite cold and a number of other people were still wrapped up. Saying that the food/drink quality was good and the staff were helpful and friendly.
We booked a standard double room and although it was clean and stylish, it was small with not a lot of space to move around, which we were slightly disappointed with. We were on a low floor and there was noise from the street but nevertheless had a good stay.
I would stay at the Giraffe again should we be in that part of NYC.
