My teenage daughters and I stayed here in July, and everything about our stay here was excellent. We arrived before check-in time, so our room was not ready yet, but they quickly took care of storing our luggage as well as getting our van valet-parked. I was able to pull up to the curb in front of the hotel to unload. The lobby area is clean and beautiful, and there are several coffee tables surrounded by comfy chairs and couches placed throughout the room - so there were plenty of places to sit and relax. Free soft drinks, water, and snacks were available at the bar stand as well. We went out several times to look around the city while waiting for our room, but with the heat wave at the time, it was too hot to walk around for long. It was wonderful to be able to return to the air-conditioned lobby to rest and cool down with drink and snacks before heading out again. When our room was ready, a staff member came over to where we were lounging in the lobby and gave us the keys to our room, letting us know that everything was ready and that our luggage was already there and waiting for us! The rooms are beautifully-decorated and spacious. We stayed in a king-bed suite. It was very comfortable, and we had plenty of room to spread out, relax, and to eat whenever we ordered food for delivery. I felt the price was incredibly reasonable for the size of the room, the location, and for being in a big city. It was easy to walk around for shopping and dining. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again!

Had a marvelous stay at Hotel Giraffe with my daughter before college drop off. Great location, quiet and excellent service from top to bottom. Especially enjoyed the lobby bar offerings of waters, sodas, fruits and snacks round the clock. Self-serve cappuccino machine is bomb. (Did miss the wine and cheese we'd heard they offered pre-pandemic). A meal at Upland across the streat is a must. Will definitely return to Hotel Giraffe. Thank you!

Stayed at the Hotel Giraffe while bringing our son to College in NYC for first time. The hotel and staff were great. The lobby was open and casual with coffee/snack bar...a nice place to spend time with friends. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, especially Jose R...so friendly. Will definitely stay here on our future visits to NYC.

Great hotel - excellent location, friendly staff - we enjoyed our stay at the Giraffe hotel. Nice lobby as well as a roof top bar. Giraffe is clean and offers larger rooms. The only negative was that one of the elevators was not working - but that was only a minor inconvenience. However it would worry me if others report that the elevator situation is not eventually corrected.

Moving my only child to NYC for college from Florida was stressful enough - the Hotel Giraffe staff, location and amenties made everything SO much easier! I cannot compliment the friendliness, help and support of the staff - from receiving packages in advance, to bringing all our luggage, boxes and bags up to the room and then back out when we 'moved' to the dorm, our beautiful and comfortable room - even the snacks and drinks available in the lobby were great. I spent four nights and am already planning to return again!
