“Can't fault it”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

I stayed here over thanksgiving for 4 days and I think it is probably one of the nicest city hotels I have ever stayed in. Location is good, but away from the real hecticness of the city... The staff were great, really helpful and friendly. Our room was a really good size, especially for New york and were well equipped. The complimentary wine and cheese every evening was such a nice touch and was a great start to an evening out.

I would go back and stay here any time I am lucky enough to return to NYC and would recommend to anyone else

We stayed at the giraffe for five days from thanksgiving. What a fab hotel the staff could not be more helpful. The rooms perfect bed cosy and comfortable with great pillows- very important there are so many hotels out there with soft pillows. It was really quiet at night and the complementary breakfast in the morning perfect. A bonus is the wine and cheese from five to eight, a nice relaxant after shopping. We will certainly be back and would recommend this hotel to everybody.

This is a very nice hotel particularly if you like being just below the midtown Manhattan streets. Rooms are spacious by New York standards, very well fitted, and the staff are energetic and helpful. The happy hour in the lobby lounge is a nice touch. All in all, a very professional establishment with an informal air to it.

Great stay at the Hotel Giraffe! Service was great. Nice to have breakfast & wine included. Rooms are spacious for NYC. Per some of the other reviews: It IS noisy in the room with the sleeper sofa, but the bedrooms were surprisingly quite. We will definitely be back!

Really nice hotel. It's new, it's clean and the staff is ok. The wine and cheese in the afternoon where the cherry to the cake! After a long day walking all over a glass of wine is very much appreciated! This hotel is a little bit expensive but for NY and it's location it's worth it.

In mid November we spent 4 nights at the Giraffe, along with two friends. This was our second stay at the Giraffe and the first for our friends. They were thrilled with the Giraffe and can't wait to join us there again. The front desk/door staff were friendly and really helpful with directions and bookings. The staff supporting the breakfast and cocktails hour were terrific. Keep up the good work!

Stayed over a weekend in the summer and found it to be a delightful, hospitable, and low key boutique. Service was excellent and downstairs inviting with wine and cheese served in early evening and coffee and fruit in the morning. Walking distance to restaurants and cultural attractions including the High Line. Would stay in this area and this hotel again. Good
