“Great hotel”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

The Giraffe has become my standard hotel in New York. Functionally located on the 6 train line (that serves most the places I visit). Deeply friendly. Comfortable. Clean. Doesn't nickel-and-dime you with extra charges.

I have now spent about 30 nights there - and I have plenty of other options. Its almost home.

--

As a regular guests there are only two minuses. The area of New York is not the most fascinating and the elevators are slow - often very slow. But these are quibbles about a great establishment.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms ending in 1. They are the suites on the quiet side. Rooms 801, 901, 1001, 1101 etc are...

Stayed here on business March 27-29, 2014. The hotel staff has excellent and very attentive customer service. They anticipate or assist with every need. You don't experience service like that often. Great rooms with everything you need, nice chocolates at turn down service and great amenitites through the day (breakfast, coffee/snacks, wine/cheese reception), etc. Location is great too. Near everything, but tucked away on a quieter street.

A perfect hotel! We went with our 3,5 yr old son and we all loved it. Perfect service. Relaxed surroundings. Perfect location. I really recommend it to everyone. We will come back next time we're in NYC.

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!
