What a gem of a hotel. Wonderful staff, great location we came for the Big Apple BBQ and to visit with my son and daughter in law. It's one block from Madison Square Park the locale of the BBQ. We walked everywhere with the exception of Brooklyn that's when the staff gave us perfect directions for the subway. I will definitely stay here again and by the way the Bread and Tulips restaurant is pretty darn good give it a try.

We stayed here for a long weekend in NYC. This hotel is such a gem. It is conveniently located, quiet and comfortable. Loved the breakfast, wine and cheese and snacks throughout the day (all included). The coffee is the best in the city and worth the stay all by itself. The room is spacious, clean and also quiet. It was such a pleasure to stay here and will be back.

I was so impressed with everything about Hotel Giraffe-- the lovely light-filled lobby, the very helpful staff, the charming room with a balcony where one can sit with a perfect cup of coffee from the machine in the dining room. Everything was sparkling clean and new, and almost spa-like in the peace and quiet. I loved having wine and cheese in the afternoon, and a perfect breakfast in the morning.
New York has so much to offer, but I have to admit, I was happy to just stay put and relax in this hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for a balcony

We stayed here the first week of June with our two children, aged 8 and 2. We had a room with two double beds, and a balcony overlooking the corner of 26th street and Park. Room was spacious and well appointed. We have traveled all over the world with our kids, and this is one of the largest rooms we have had in a major city. The hotel is in a perfect location, a few blocks from Little Korea, and right around the corner from Curry Hill. It was a short two block walk to the subway, with easy access to upper East side museums, Times Square, Grand Central etc. There is a brilliant park about a block away with a nice play area for children and also home to the Shake Shack. We walked to the Empire State Building, the New York Public Library, and Bryant Park. The hotel has a complimentary breakfast (yogurts, fresh fruit, cereals, hard boiled eggs, etc) and a nice wine and cheese reception with veggies etc in the afternoon which served as a nice snack before going out to dinner later in the evening. There is also a free 24 hour coffee bar in the lobby. The lobby/breakfast area was small but had very comfortable seating and was especially pleasant in the evening when they usually had someone playing the piano. We would definitely stay here again! Highly recommended!

Stayed there for a week. Great place. Between the comp'd breakfast, cookies during the day and the cheese and crackers in the afternoon (not to mention the wine), we always had a snack available. The use of an umbrella was a real life saver. We were prepared for light rain, but the torrential downpour of last Friday would have ruined our day, if not for the umbrellas.
Location was great, within 3 blocks of 5 different subway lines (N,R,4,5 & 6). Not much really close by as far as reasonably prices restaurants, but there were a few within a 10 minute walk on Lex & 5th (btwn 23 & 28th). My wife & I took our recent HS grad. The corner suite (bedroom, living room with pull out) provided all of us with some degree of privacy at a reasonable price (for MidTown). Staff was great, always smiling and helping us with little things. Didn't expect that from NYC hotels. Would definitely return.

Stayed here with some friends and really enjoyed the staff and room. Wine and cheese
hour is nice after a long day (the only free thing in NYC haha) and the breakfast is a nice bonus too. Its in a quiet area which was nice for winding down after a long day and felt more like home
than the big box hotels.

Family of 4 (2 teenage daughters).

Stayed at the Giraffe for 7 nites in late May. We were welcomed upon arrival with a very helpful staff and pleasantly surprised to find our room was available for check in at 8am. Perfect after a "red-eye" from So Cal! This allowed us to freshen up and get on with our exploring of Manhattan.

The boutique hotel is perfectly situated in Midtown a couple blocks from Flatiron District which I found to enjoy the most. A block from Madison Square Park as well. Another major benefit we loved was being on Park Ave and directly above the 4,5,6 subway line. Made it extremely easy to traverse all of Manhattan.

Hotel staff was top notch and very accommodating. I travel a lot and I cannot recall a better staff. 2 double bed room with balcony was large for NY standards and the balcony is a great addition you will not find anywhere else in Manhattan. Room was spotless and housekeeping is on their A game.

Can't forget the daily continental B-fast, drinks throughout day, and wine/cheese in evenings. That really sets this hotel apart from others.

Will find it hard to stay anywhere else the next time visiting New York.

Thank you Hotel Giraffe for making my families 1st trip to the Big Apple a great experience!
