I visited New York for the first time with my wife and daughter, both of whom had been before and are great fans of the Big Apple. I was keen to avoid one of the big chain hotels. The Hotel Giraffe was recommended by friends and TripAdvisor. We booked a suite rather than two separate rooms, being cheaper and providing more space.
We were not disappointed. The location of the hotel was superb, in Midtown Manhattan, close to the subway, surrounded by restaurants and places of interest.
The hotel was great, very friendly staff, excellent room, great breakfast. Big bonus was the "Wine O'Clock", the 5-8 free wine and nibbles, just what was needed after a hard days sightseeing, to review what we had seen and plan the next day. I suppose the only possible downside to the Giraffe is the lack of it's own restaurant but then who wants to eat in a hotel rather than experience the variety of eating at one of the many restaurants available on your doorstep?
Overall, a great hotel in a great location, we would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New York.
