“My wedding was perfect because of Hotel Giraffe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

I had my wedding and cocktail hour at the Hotel Giraffe in late June and I can't say enough amazing things about my experience. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with a smile by Jose who helped us with all of our bags and took care of parking the car (huge plus). The rooms were spacious, beautiful and had a great views of the city. The staff were always polite, professional and eager to make our stay memorable. Prioir to the wedding, our coordinator, Emily White was super organized and helped prioritize what needed to be done leading up to the big day. Our experience wouldn't have been the same without Emily, she was on top of every detail and her calm, cool nature helped me immensely before walking down the aisle! I received so many compliments from our guests regarding the food, ambiance and service. I will never forget my perfect wedding experience at the Hotel Giraffe and would recommend this hotel for a vacation experience in NY or any event or function. 5 stars!!!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great, but if you can, I recommend springing for the one bedroom suite!

Very well situated hotel on 6th Avenue. Subway is only 2 blocks away.
Rooms are quite spacious (NYC standards). Breakfast is rather limited and is served in the lobby. Unfortunately there is often not that much room for everyone, so in case you arrive late you'll have to wait to be seated. There is a rooftop bar but it's only now and then open...

Staff is quite friendly & helpfull.

Just returned from staying at the Hotel Giraffe and already miss being there! They provide excellent service in every area: friendly & helpful staff; delicious complimentary breakfast; wine & cheese in the afternoon and every amenity you could desire. The rooms were clean, quiet & well appointed and the bathroom was large. Our hotel experience made our trip to NYC so enjoyable. I can't wait to go back just to stay at the Hotel Giraffe.

We stayed for three days and had a spacious suite - a real one with a cozy sitting room and a really separated bedroom. Pleasant decor, functional furniture and interior. Great lobby with a complimentary snack on the counter at all times. Free breakfast and free fast wifi. Very friendly and helpful staff without the overcool attitude found in some other boutique hotels...
Best value for money we have so far found in Manhattan - after trying numerous hotels. Our search has ended...

The hotel staff were friendly, courteous and extremely professional without being officious. Their general attitude was "if you need it, we will provide it". The room was immaculate, comfortable and virtually soundproof. The midtown location is very convenient and the hotel was a good value for a property in Manhattan. I'd recommend the Hotel Giraffe without hesitation and would stay there again. If I were to be extremely picky I'd say the aroma therapy bath products were fairly generic and the continental breakfast was very good but not exceptional, but these are minor quibbles.

We recently stayed at the Hotel Giraffe after a recommendation from a friend. Our five nights were one of the best experiences we have had in a NYC hotel. Our suite was comfortable and very quiet. The morning buffet was totally satisfying. We didn't take advantage of the cheese and wine late afternoon, but it looked terrific!
The front desk helped us with securing very hard to get tickets to a Broadway show as well as access to nearby popular restaurants.

Room Tip: We chose to get a suite for a little more money. Our daughter stayed in the "living room"...

This hotel is very very nice. I had a wonderful room and the staff were very nice. Easy access to subway to mid-town for shopping. The breakfast was very good too. I would stay at this hotel again and highly recommend it to others.
