Just stayed at the Giraffee for our anniversary and can highly recommend it. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The room is perfectly appointed couldn't ask for anything more. We particularly liked the location on 26th street as you can get downtown or uptown easily from that location. We didn't participate in the wine and cheese but we did enjoy the bagels in the morning. We were very comfortable during our 2 night stay as this hotel and will plan to stay here again.

I love staying at the Giraffe. It's a great hotel for doing business in New York, especially for women. It's comfortable with just enough personality, rooms are warm, spacious and quiet, with great bathrooms, good to return to after a long day of meetings or exploring New York. I also like that breakfast is included, and wi-fi is free. The staff are generally very friendly and helpful. The location is also very handy for the subway.

Hotel Giraffee, located 26th Str Park Av South. A very nice design hotel. We stayed 2 adults and 2 adult children in one room for 5 days. Excellent service, breakfast included, and just not a lousy continental one. At 5 pm complimentary wine and cheese is served, just perfect after a hard day in Manhattan. Recommended!

Had 2 night stay with my teenage son,in King suite. Living room was dark as it faced wall but that suited us, it was quiet! Modern,clean room,comfortable bed & bedding, turn down service. Roof terrace is nice. Good location, safe, easy to walk anywhere. Took us less than 30 mins to walk to Times square. Staff are friendly but not in your face. Free bagels, pastries, fruit & cereal breakfast & cheese/crackers/wine in evening is a bonus in NYC. I am taking one star off because the lobby gathering area/breakfast area was rather impersonal & drafty as main doors opening/closing caused cold breeze & is not as cozy/private as their sister hotel 'library gathering room' on upper floor . If you want your coffee or breakfast in room you can request it, there's a list of extras & staff are accommodating - just ask!

This was my second time staying at the Giraffe Hotel. I chose it primarily for its location, but also for the excellent service and amenities it offers.
The hotel presents a terrific wine and cheese spread for a few hours later in the day and a great complimentary continental breakfast each morning. Whole fruit and cookies and muffins are available in the lobby throughout the day.
The first time I stayed here, I was with my sister and aunt and we had one of the suites with a balcony. The size was perfect for the 3 of us and we did not feel too confined at all.
When I returned on this trip with my husband, I thought I was booking the same room, but was disappointed to find out we were on the end of the hall and the room did not have a balcony. Although I was told the size of the room was the same, it was a different configuration and did feel a bit smaller. The windows in the sitting area faced out to a brick wall, so the natural lighting was sparse in that room. If you are looking for a suite, I would definitely recommend asking for one with a balcony and steer clear of the end rooms.
Otherwise, our stay was very comfortable and I would definitely return here again and also recommend this hotel to other travelers.

Nice, silent, big room. Enjoyed the nice lobby/café with complementary coffee (excellent coffemachine) and the wine and cheese receptions in the afternoons. Friendly staff and great service.
Loved my stay here!
