We keep coming back to the Giraffe every time we visit New York. The extra goodies like the complimentary breakfast, the evening wine and munchies, pianist in the lobby, and chocolates on the pillows don't hurt either. This time we ended up staying an extra day because of the snowstorm that cancelled our flight. The Giraffe was happy to extend our stay at the low rate we'd been given on a pre-pay basis a month earlier. The neighborhood is off the beaten path, which for us is a bonus. The restaurants within walking distance are great--Blue Smoke, Les Halles, Artisanal, and Gramercy Tavern are our favorites. The hotel also offers room service from Park Ave. Bistro and Dos Caminos, which are right next door. Rooms are a good size, by NY standards, with small balconies and motorized window shades. Decor is modern, perhaps needing a little updating here and there, but generally pleasing. Everything is clean and our rooms have always been serviced in a timely manner. Questions and requests to the desk are always dealth with in a friendly and prompt manner. I love this place!
