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 encased in sheets so you don't have to have someone else's germs in your face all night.
The complimentary breakfast and cocktails were very nice as well. Parking was reasonable - $28/night. (I've been to hotels that charge $40). The neighborhood is vibrant, without being obnoxious, (Flatiron district) with lots of restaurants to chose from.
It was one of our few total success hotels stays in NY.
My only suggestion to the management is that they increase the wattage in their light bulbs. The rooms are painted brown, and with the limited sunlight, due to the buildings being right next door, they need to put in stronger bulbs. I mentioned this to the woman at the desk and she said all I had to do was ask...some customers do that. Well, asking for brighter light bulbs is not something I would think of doing, nor do I think I should HAVE to do. PUt them in the lamps in the first place.
But next time I'll ask, and we will be back.
