I commute and go into the city often and never noticed this hotel on Park Ave. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and had dinner reservations in Union Square. The hotel is just a few blocks away and in a great spot. The people at the front desk checked us in quickly, congratulated us and upgraded our room!...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 February 2017 via mobile

This hotel was wonderful from check in to check out. It is a small boutique hotel that is warm and welcoming. We had two rooms, one a king bed room with a separate sitting area and another room with two queen beds. Both rooms were very comfortable. Nice linens and nice towels too. The queen room actually had a small...

The Giraffe is perfectly located for our activities in NYC. The subway is 2-3 blocks away. The staff is friendly and remembers us from previous visits -- it's like coming home. The rooms are clean and well appointed. I love the light breakfast and the wine and cheese offering every evening. Coffee, tea, cookies and fruit are always available in...

This is by far my favorite New York hotel. It's not an overly large property, definitely boutique but you never feel claustrophobic here. The rooms are HUGE by NYC standards and spotlessly clean. Bathroom has plenty of counter space, instant hot water, shower/tub combo. Lots of drawers in the dresser/armoire. They have a very generous wine and cheese hour that...

Hotel Giraffe looked too good to be true on paper, and as it turns out it was. Some clever photography makes the rooms look much bigger than an average New York City hotel room... which is simply not the case. Its location is also not quite what we were looking for which is on us more than the hotel. The...

We spent this past weekend at the Hotel Giraffe. This was our second stay at this hotel. As with our first stay, this was also a totally delightful experience. The staff at the hotel are among the friendliest and most helpful I have encountered in staying at various hotels. We were last here a year ago and were greeted by...

Our family stayed for three days in February. This is such a fine hotel and it suited our needs perfectly. We met in the lobby at breakfast and at happy hour and were never rushed and always welcomed. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. The staff is excellent, especially the breakfast and happy hour staff. We...

The rooms are spotless, and the staff is so friendly. Gabriela even remembered us from our previous visit in 2015! Our stay was extended by 3 additional nights due to the storm. The staff was gracious in coordinating the additional nights without having to change rooms. They also found and returned a forgotten item promptly. We highly recommend Hotel Giraffe.

Wonderful boutique European hotel. Great breakfast and evening wine and cheese with piano. Will return again and again as it feels intimate in a busy city. Rooms with balconies and a rooftop green terrace. Would recommend a suite.

This is the best place in NYC to stay for the value. Great service, terrific breakfast and wine and cheese, good location. It is also easy place to catch transportation---taxis, subway, busses. If we have the choice, we always stay here.
