I only have excellent things to say about my 2 recent stays at the Hotel Giraffe in December 2013 and January 2014. The first stay was with 3 other girlfriends for 11 nights. The hotel was fantastic and the staff catered to our every request. Breakfast was served every morning in the lobby with an excellent array of fresh baked goods, cereals, fruit, yoghurt and boiled eggs. Not to mention espresso coffee and tea. The staff were only too happy to assist, including preparing oatmeal to your liking. The wine and cheese reception from 5-8pm every evening was an absolute treat and a great way to start the evening. While there is no gym onsite, Hotel Giraffe offers guests compliemtnary passes to the NYSC gym a short walk away – and if you ask me, that is a lot better than any hotel gym!
The staff were fantastic, and I have to give a special thanks to the lovely doormen who helped us with our bags including playing a pretty tricky game of Tetris trying to fit 6 suitcases into the car (we did a lot of shopping!) and who were always more than happy to find us a taxi, even during peak hour times (including running down Park Ave!).
On our second visit our incoming flight was cancelled and we ended up having to hire a car and drive from Boston to New York. Hotel Giraffe was only too happy to arrange valet parking for our hire car. They took care of everything – a very pleasant outcome after a very stressful day.
I would highly, highly recommend Hotel Giraffe to anyone visiting New York. The level of service is outstanding and the hotel itself is lovely with all the amenities you could ever need. The best thing about the hotel is you are not just a number in a huge hotel – the hotel is genuinely a boutique hotel, and to us that really made the difference.
There is only one place I am staying when I visit New York again. Thank you to all the staff for such a lovely stay.
