Visiting on our 25th Anniversary and our first long haul flight we were made to feel very welcome by the staff.
We had requested a special welcome of "Romantic Rendezvous" – Rose petals, chocolate strawberries and champagne – and it was perfect…..better than Giraffes pictures…. see ours.
The room with balcony was to a very high standard, spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
Breakfast, buffet style was tasty, plentiful and beautifully presented in a very nice, relaxing setting. In the evening before going out for a meal we really enjoyed the complimentary cheese and wine.
The location was good with the subway and some nice restaurants within easy walking distance. We comfortably walked to the Empire State building – 10 Mins – and Grand Central Station. Just around the corner was the beautiful Madison Square Park and Flat Iron building – all best seen at night with views of the Empire State Building.
The staff were simply excellent. There to help but not in your face. Greeted warmly at breakfast and throughout the day they were happy to undertake tasks such as confirming bookings and calling cabs. They were all extremely professional and to a clear and consistent standard without losing the personal touch. They as much as the hotel made our stay so enjoyable. We loved the hotel and really our only disappointment would be the Rooftop Garden which was understandably closed for the season.
Having read our review and looked again at the website we feel it does what it says.
Well done Giraffe and thank you. We would not think of staying anywhere else in New York.
