My family enjoyed an incredible weekend stay at Hotel Giraffe, and based on our experience, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting NYC. The rooms are large, clean, and extremely comfortable, and the hotel staff is amazingly friendly and very helpful. Make sure to enjoy the breakfast that includes a good selection of bagels, pastries, and fresh fruit,... More

This is by far the best hotel I've stayed at in NYC! I found this hotel by doing a search for "quiet NYC hotels". My husband and I had no trouble sleeping here, which is the main problem we've had with other NYC hotels (street noise and/or noise from within the hotel - either preventing us from falling asleep, or...

Lovely, clean, well appointed hotel. Beautiful and comfortable lobby with drinks and delicious snacks available all day. We visited on an extremely hot and humid weekend, and returning to the hotel was a welcome respite. Will definitely stay here again when we visit NYC.

In town visiting family and wanted to stay somewhere different this time. Read the reviews on this hotel and decided to give it a try. I was so impressed that I had to post a review. When I booked the room, I asked for a few extra pillows as I always do. Most often, the request is ignored, but not... More

What a great find! The Hotel Giraffe stands out for its amazing staff. Everyone-concierges, doormen, maintenance, housekeeping, and food service- went out of their way to be friendly, efficient, and helpful. We were treated as if we were the most important guests in the hotel. There are numerous complimentary perks- a lovely wine and cheese offering in the afternoon, an... More

We chose to stay at the Hotel Giraffe based on much research and on the excellent Trip Advisor reviews we had read. The hotel met all of our expectations! We are a family of four with two teenage daughters . We chose a Balcony King Suite and an interconnecting Balcony Double on the tenth floor. The rooms were perfect and... More

To celebrate my mom's 86th birthday my sisters and I planned a few days in NYC. We had stayed at the Hotel Giraffe a few times before and of course knew it would be the perfect place to take her. She is not real mobile and a small boutique hotel was just what she would like. To say that the... More

The hotel is centrally located in Manhatten, an easy walk to Maceys, The Empire State building, & Grand Central Station. A perfect location for moving Up or Downtown. We found all the staff at this hotel very welcoming & attentive. The rooms were larger than we expected & very quiet & comfortable. The free wine & cheese reception each evening... More

I have stayed here twice & am planning another trip for the holidays. I loved this place. You can't beat the location or the service. The districts diverse shops and excellent restaurants draw New Yorkers day and night. The historic Petes Tavern helps New York treasure its past while the numerous "Silicon Alley" internet companies bring the city into the... More

Stayed here to recover from a minor operation and couldn't have been happier. Staff was warm and accommodating, room was spacious and clean, and location was central. I couldn't have been happier and healed in a peaceful, welcoming room. I kept extending my stay and what was supposed to be one night turned to three. I recommend this hotel hands... More
