Wow- couldn't wait to write this review about this great place to stay. If you don't want the craziness of Time Square but still be located close to some fantastic restaurants, parks, shopping and transportation, this is the hotel. After researching thru Trip Advisor we chose the Hotel Giraffe and were not disappointed. It is a boutique hotel with a special personality that extended to the wonderful staff. The hotel amenities, the staff, the location, rooftop outdoor space, the complimentary morning breakfast items and evening wine and cheese all add up to a special hotel stay. Thanks Giraffe !!
