“Great NY value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

The Giraffe is a real bargain by NY standards. The lobby is lovely and stocked with cookies and pastries. In the AM there is a continental breakfast, and in the evenings, complimentary wine and cheese.
The rooms are comfortable and, for NY, good sized.
Everyone is friendly and the staff really works hard to ensure a good stay.
Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed here on my daughters passed experence here and yes she was right the staff and the rooms were the best. Ps. my 8 year old granddaughte loves the cookie she says they are the best in the world, yes how can you top this. Well everyday we have wine and cheese in the evening. Great morning coffee and you name it you don't go hungry, yes and it's all included. Ps. Best of all the cookies if you don't beleive me ask my granddaughter. Yes I did get a chance to meet the Manager of this fine Hotel, he sure is doing something right. Because my daughter and all her friends stay here everytime they are in New York. I am late with this review. Thank You Staff and Manager for always a wonderful stay.

This was my 2nd time to stay at the Hotel Giraffe, and everything I remembered from my 1st visit was true. Great service, great atmosphere, great location, great amenities, great lobby. Who could ask for anything more? Worth every penny. Love the staff! This is the only place we will ever stay in the city.

You know you have arrived at a wonderful property the second you walk through the doors.
The warm greeting, the care in making sure you are comfortable and well looked after is evident.
The hotel is in the perfect location, no matter where it is that you need to go.
The comfort of the lobby, which changes throughout the day; offering a perfect breakfast to begin, mid afternoon snacks and beverages, evening wine and cheese while listening to the piano.
The room was incredibly quiet, a perfect layout with a feeling of luxury from the comfort of the bed to the relaxing bathroom.
This is definitely our Go - To Hotel whenever in New York & we would also look forward to staying at the other properties within this collection as there are 3 more.
Such a pleasant stay!

Very clean, quiet, private, upscale with an attentive staff. the morning offers a wonderful continental breakfast with rich coffee, muffins, NY bagels, lox and much more. The evening provides a a lobby setting with piano music, wine, cheese and opportunity for a relaxing conversation.

My favorite hotel in NYC.

We spent 4 days in Hotel Giraffe at the end of our trip, as a treat. It was great - very comfortable, with high quality fixtures and great luxury touches. Worth every penny.
Small point for management: having only one folding suitcase rack for a room that size is inconvenient. Two would make this pretty close to perfect :)
