“My favorite hotel in NYC”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Don´t even question it, I have stayed all over the city over the past 10 years and you can´t beat the Giraffe for location/price and superior service, I don´t know how they do it, but they really surpassed all my expectations! i´ll be back in September!

My favorite in NYC. Perfect location, very friendly and helpful staff, and wonderful "feel" Couldn't ask for a better experience. The breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese are great touches for this excellent hotel. If you like the hustle and bustle of a large hotel, this is not the place for you. . . but if you like a very personal feel, try this it out.

My husband and i recently stayed at the Hotel Giraffe for 10 nights. The hotel is quite modern in style and is exceptionally clean and tidy. The breakfasts are great with plenty of choice and items that they run out of are continually replenished.

The staff are all happy to help in any way and nothing is a bother to them and they are all very friendly and approachable.

There is free tea and coffee with cookies and pastries 24/7. The wine reception between 5-8pm is excellent and there is a piano player during this time making for a very relaxed atmosphere.

The breakfast and wine reception staff are great especially Gabriella who does a great job and is very attentive without being over the top and she made our stay very enjoyable.

I thoroughly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.

We loved Hotel Giraffe. Just spent 4 nights here July 2 - July 6. From the amazing staff, including, but not limited to JR, Laura, Gabi, Ron, and Simona - thank you all for making our stay so fantastic. Our room was well appointed, on the 6th floor, with a balcony overlooking Park Avenue. Room had everything we could possibly want. Loved the turn down service at night complete with complimentary bottled water and chocolates. The breakfast in the morning and the wine and cheese hours at night just complimented the rest of the stay. Be sure to visit the outdoor patio on the 12th floor. We will definitely recommend this hotel and will be sure to return. We are missing the coffee machine in the lobby! Also loved the room darkening shades and it was amazing how sound proof the balcony doors were - not bothered by noise at all. If I had to TRY to find one thing the hotel could improve upon, it would be the elevator service, which could be slow at times. We took the stairs, so it wasn't a big deal for us.

Room Tip: We loved having a King Balcony room - very spacious and loved having the patio doors open.

This was our first stay at Hotel Giraffe and we are counting down the days to returning. The staff was friendly and accommodating.The complementary breakfast, wine and cheese reception was excellent. Every morning we would start our day with the complementary breakfast and head out to sight see. The location was perfect: very close to Madison Square and subway lines. It's quiet and my little one was able to sleep peacefully. This hotel is super clean and the rooms are spacious. We would definitely stay here again and we would HIGHLY recommend this hotel! Thank you for helping us make wonderful memories with our kids!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Giraffe, a contemporary boutique hotel. We found the staff to be personable and helpful - particularly JR at the Reception Desk and Gabriella who served us morning coffee and wine and cheese in the evening. The Hotel is clean and quiet. The complementary breakfast and wine and cheese reception was appreciated. The hotel is WiFi accessible. The location was perfect: very close to Madison Square, the Flatiron Building and other historic buildings. Near to several subways lines. A short walk to Eataly! We would definitely stay there again. No Times Square hotel experience for us!

This was my first stay at the Hotel Giraffe and it was a great experience. All the staff were welcoming, friendly and went out of their way to make my stay as enjoyable and easy as possible. The front desk staff were welcoming and accommodating, the bell staff pleasant and attentive, and the breakfast staff were friendly and efficient. My room was spacious and attractively appointed. The bed and linens were comfortableI have stayed at their partner hotel the Elysee many times and the Giraffe maintains the same high standards with a lovely updated décor and ambience. I will return.

Room Tip: My stay at the Giraffe was on weekdays and I was in room #604, right across from one of the elevator...
