I had three rooms booked at The Giraffe for my familly to enjoy another NYE in NYC, followed by a further 5 nights enjoying the city. Having visited New York on numerous occassions, and stayed in a variety of hotels, from 5 stars to 3, from up-town to mid and down, I can honestly say that The Giraffe gave us the best overall experience ever! Like a number of reviewers have pointed out, the establishment is not one of the "well known" brands and, from our experience I would say, long may that continue. The staff could not be more helpful, caring or considerate and every team member we came into contact with was an absolute star.
As well as the complimentary breakfasts / cheese and wine tastings, do not miss out on Bread & Tulips the restaurant annexed to the hotel; really fine Italian cuisine in great surroundings.
Any complaints? I'd really have to be stretching the bounds of reasonableness here but if i had to make a suggested improvement ...... morning coffee .... ahem, that's NOT coffee ! Sorry but I like mine strong. But as I say, a real nit pick I know.
All in all, a GREAT hotel and one we would recommend to anyone looking for a perfect place to stay in NYC. We'll be back !More
