I took my girlfriend for a weekend in the city for her birthday. Upon entering the hotel, they were able to hold our bags for the day, so we could go out and adventure. When we returned and checked-in, we went up to our room. We entered our room and it was gorgeous. A bottle of wine was waiting for us in our suite that we had been upgraded to. Having a balcony in the room was probably her favorite part of the trip. Ha. The staff was courteous and helpful. The wine hours were wonderful. The amenities were fantastic. They really went out of their way to make sure that we were satisfied.It was a wonderful stay. We look forward to our trip back!

Room Tip: I would suggest the suites if you decide to go. They're worth it!

We loved this great boutique hotel. It’s location is perfect for going out and exploring, away from the most noisy and crowded streets, but still very central. Our room was large and spacious and very clean. The continental breakfast included tasty NY bagels with peanut butter or cream cheese – yum! It was hard not to overdo it each morning! We only managed to get to the complimentary cheese & wine one evening, but when we did we somewhat overindulged and very much enjoyed it! The rooftop bar is a great place to chill out, enjoy a cocktail and just take in the city – we absolutely loved retiring there after a hard day’s sight seeing. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting NYC.

This is our favorite NYC hotel. Discovered it a few years ago and have never gone anywhere else since. They hotel is small and only has a few rooms per floor. The rooms are clean and very nice. The hotel has complimentary breakfast in the morning and wine and cheese in the afternoons. It has a great location close to subway lines and a short walk to washington square park. The staff is excellent!

Spent a long weekend here to visit museums and do some work. This was my first time staying in NYC, and Hotel Giraffe was absolutely perfect in terms of location and service! Jonathan was so accommodating in handling my reservation and the doormen and front-desk staff were always pleasant. The room was immaculate and the breakfasts were such a convenient way to start the day...took coffee to the rooftop in the mornings and sat peacefully in the lounge with espresso at night to do work. Just 2 blocks from line 6 metro station, and a quick walk to Eataly. Loved Hotel Giraffe and definitely recommend to others!!

We had a great stay at the Giraffe. Attentive and knowledgeable staff, great location, and coffee and cocktails were appreciated. We stayed in room 1203-best room and view in town. Thanks to the Giraffe-we will be back.

My mom and I stayed at the Giraffe for a quick trip to NYC recently. We both loved everything about the hotel: the size, cleanliness and comfort of the room (we had a 1-BR suite); the front-desk staff; and the extras like the breakfast & afternoon happy hour with good wine and cheese. All this was perfect anyway, but on top of it all, my mom sprained her ankle during the trip, and the staff was SO helpful in taking care of her needs after that; every time we requested ice (which was frequent!), someone was at the door within a few minutes with a bag full and a kind word. Another staff member (sweet guy whose name I've forgotten--so sorry!) spent awhile on the phone helping me track down a drugstore that sold canes. Everyone (includ. the manager, Kirsten) was just super-helpful. I live near NYC, and will definitely return to the Giraffe for future stays.
