“This is the way to stay in NYC”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

I chose Hotel Giraffe for my second trip to NYC. The first time I stayed was in a huge hotel in Times Square. I will NEVER visit again without staying in a boutique hotel. Hotel Giraffe has an excellent location on Park Ave. It is far enough away from the craziness, but close enough for you to walk most anywhere you want. The staff is amazingly friendly and service is fast. We called for extra towels a couple of times and they were at our door within 2 minutes. You don't get THAT at a huge, overly crowded TS hotel! The hotel is clean. I travel a lot and am super picky about this. The wine and cheese at night is nice, as is the rooftop area. The morning breakfast is great to grab on your way out. Even the coffee is pretty good. I'm picky about that, too. I will stay here again. Book your stay here with confidence and have a great trip to the city.

We just spent the weekend at Hotel Giraffe and had a lovely stay. From check-in to check-out, the experience was flawless. We arrived quite early in the day, but reception was happy to store our bags and graciously offered us the continental breakfast. When our room was ready (3 hours early) we found our bags already there. We were a bit concerned that traffic noise would be a problem since our room faced Park Ave. however we slept very soundly. Every member of the staff we encountered during our stay was very friendly and helpful while the wine & cheese reception was a relaxing pre-dinner experience. This was our first visit but it won't be our last!

My wife and I just completed our first stay in NYC and we choose the Hotel Giraffe due to other reviews, location and amenities. This was by far the best service we have received from any hotel. The accommodations were exactly as advertised, however the staff were all just fantastic. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Manhatten.

The Hotel Giraffe has many amenities to recommend it. Location is wonderful near Madison Park and just north of Union Square. Best restaurants around it. But what sets this hotel apart is the continuity of friendly, professional staff that have been there for years. That's the mark of great management.

Our greeting by Simona at the front desk and Jose at the bell station set a great tone for our stay at Hotel Giraffe.

We arrived too early to check in, but were welcomed to hang out in the lobby, and help ourselves to the complimentary treats, ice water, and delicious coffee drinks available. We snacked up, then headed out into the hot hot hot day to explore. That ice water sure hit the spot when we came back! We checked into out spacious one-bedroom suite with a view of the New York Life building off our little balcony. The kids recognized the gold pyramid topping it from Ghostbusters (are you the key master?)

The room was spotless, and well appointed. Lots of closet space, comfy beds, books on the shelves, and free bottles of water. Loved it. Only complaint was that the wavy frosted pane in the bathroom made the teens self-conscious about using the shower, but after negotiations that involved averted eyes, they got over it. I was disappointed to have to do a drive by of the wine & cheese In the afternoon, but it looked like a nice array.

Nice breakfast with fruit, bagels, croissants, pastry, hard boiled eggs, cereal, OJ, and cappuccino, espresso, cafe au lait. We checked out, then continued our adventures in the city. When we came back to pick our bags & leave, the folks at the desk gave us cold bottles of water for the road. I will certainly stay at Hotel Giraffe again, they just know how to make you feel welcome & pampered.
