“Lovely hotel with nice view”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

I really like all their hotels, but Library hotel and Giraffe are my favourite. Good comfortable beds, very good service everywhere in the hotel.

Breakfast very limited, but the cheese and wine afternoon offer is really a nice gesture and good as a break from busy NYC.

I stayed in a suite, I can't recommend it enough.

Looking forward to be back.

Room Tip: Go for a suite!

Our stay with Hotel Giraffe was more than we could have expected. All of the staff is welcoming and the hotel itself was beautiful. The morning started with a full breakfast included for all the guests that left us full for most of the day! If you need a snack or a quick coffee pick me up, they have an espresso machine and pastries available all day, and to top it off every evening you can join them for their complimentary wine and cheese reception.

The atmosphere was relaxed and the beds were comfortable! We both had to get some work done while we were in NYC so we appreciated the free WIFI at the hotel. The location allowed us to walk to most places or jump on the nearby train if we were going further.

We would definitely recommend Hotel Giraffe if you are visiting NYC, they will spoil you during your stay so much you won't want to leave!

I recently stayed at the Hotel Giraffe with my aunt and sister. We reserved the king suite with balcony view which was perfect for the 3 of us. It was spacious enough and the main bedroom had doors to separate it from the living area. The bathroom was a nice size, although with only one sink. Our tub was clogged on the day we were leaving, but seemed fine the other days we were there.
There is a lot of closet and storage space, along with a safe, 2 robes, slippers, mini bar and complimentary water bottles. Turn down service is also available.
My aunt said the sleep sofa was comfortable and she enjoyed the large flat screen tv and balcony view in her area. Just to be clear, the balcony is more like 2 large windows where you can step out onto an enclosed ledge and look out, but it did give an airy feel to the room. There is no space to actually sit and relax and more than 2 people standing out there would be pushing the limit. We used t to check the weather outside each morning.
We found the tv remote hard to figure out and it took us forever to find the stations we wanted. But, that could also be that we are not in our 20's and/or tech savvy. Also, you get the impression that you can order on demand movies, but they are not actually available.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful from the doorman, to the front desk staff to the custodian. Definitely no complaints on that end!
The hotel offers a continental breakfast which includes hard boiled eggs, danish, fruit, coffee etc. There is also wine and cheese offered late in the afternoon and fruit and cookies are available in the lobby all day. It's a nice touch.
We opted for Sara Beth's around the corner for breakfast, but that's a whole other review.
All in all, I would definitely stay here again. We all felt it was worth what we paid and we thoroughly enjoyed out stay.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with more than 2 people, I highly recommend the king suite with balcony. It has...

Back to Hotel Giraffe after 3 years to confirm that this is one of the best options in NY. Same good service, nice room, good complimentary breakfast and happy hour, free wi-fi are among the good reasons for keeping coming back.

Agree with most everything written about the Giraffe, it was a really nice hotel with great furnishings in the rooms and top quality throughout. Location in lower midtown is also excellent. But what really sets it apart is the wine and cheese and free breakfast in the lounge/open room on the main floor; both were very good, much better than I expected, and a really unique touch for a hotel that is generally a good value in the higher end bracket in NY city. Excellent choice for a weekend visit.

Nice hotel, beautiful decor, spacious room with a floor to ceiling window. The breakfast is good and we loved the happy hour with sparkling wine, red wine, fruits, pastries, nuts. Very good price x benefits. I had a lot of packages coming in and they hold all of them withou charge.

Just about every aspect of this hotel was outstanding, especially the service and attention to detail. I have stayed at many hotels in NYC, most of which cost more and deliver a lot less. The hotel room even featured a nice little balcony for some fresh air and a view of the city streets. I will be back!
