We spent Christmas at the Hotel Giraffe, and it was wonderful in every way. Great, central location, but not the frenzy of the Times Square area. It was quiet. For NYC our room felt spacious, and it was very well appointed. We had floor to ceiling balcony windows that let in lots of light, and there was a blackout shade that operated electronically for sleeping in. We had barely been in the room for 5 minutes when someone tapped on the door inquiring if we had everything we needed. This attention to our needs continued for 4 days. The “continental” breakfast in the lobby is the best I’ve ever had—frighteningly good croissants, non-fat, plain (hard to find in hotels) greek yogurt, huge and fresh fruit bowl, cereals, pastries, bagels, hard-boiled eggs, large espresso/cappuccino coffee machine (as well as regular), newspapers to read while eating. The only problem is that it was often quite crowded. The staff’s attentiveness appears genuine. They don’t have those pasted on smiles. I assume and hope they like working there. On departure I had left my cell phone charger in the wall. A call to the hotel several days later resulted in a found charger and an offer to mail it to me, but we were returning to the city in several weeks and it was waiting for me when I got there. That is unusual in my experience of hotels. Four thumbs up to the Hotel Giraffe!
