We spent Friday night and Saturday night at Hotel Giraffe. The rooms, hotel and staff are wonderful. We informed the staff on Friday of the specific issues that Shabbos observers have when staying in a hotel i.e. electronic entry, room light, ice machine. The staff was on top of everything and they passed the information on to the other staff members. When I came back from Shul on Saturday, a staff member spotted me, and met me at my room to open the door - I didn't have to ask. They arranged for ice to be brought up at specific times and for the lights to be turned off on Friday night. They also supplied us with 2 refrigerators at no extra charge. This is not a kosher hotel and you must bring your own meals for shabbos or eat out. When I called the hotel prior to our stay they informed me that their lobby snacks/breakfast were non kosher. However, on 1/10-1/12/14 the cookies (24/7) in lobby were Pepperidge farms (kosher-dairy) and the breakfast had kosher whole grain bread and kosher cereal. There is 24/7 coffee and tea and fruit. Also, hotel is near Orthodox shul Adereth El on 29th between lex and 3rd (shabbos and daily services).
