This was my first stay at the Hotel Giraffe and it was a great experience. All the staff were welcoming, friendly and went out of their way to make my stay as enjoyable and easy as possible. The front desk staff were welcoming and accommodating, the bell staff pleasant and attentive, and the breakfast staff were friendly and efficient. My room was spacious and attractively appointed. The bed and linens were comfortableI have stayed at their partner hotel the Elysee many times and the Giraffe maintains the same high standards with a lovely updated décor and ambience. I will return.

Room Tip: My stay at the Giraffe was on weekdays and I was in room #604, right across from one of the elevator...

The service and accommodation was excellent at this privately owned and friendly hotel. The room we had was of ample size and the bed was exceptionally comfortable (we did specify a Kingsize room). In the reception lounge you could slways get complimentary tea and coffee and there was wifi available throughout the building. There is a small cocktail bar on the roof open to residents and non-residents. There are plenty of good places to eat nearby with Eataly (try prime rib sandwich) and Lady M (try cheesecake) 'must visit' venues.

Chose the Giraffe as a different choice for a special getaway due to reviews and location and came away a bit underwhelmed. No complaints on the staff...always friendly and attentive. However, lacking a bar/restaurant onsite forced us to wander out, the bed was unremarkable, even uncomfortable, the HVAC annoying, and the room just ok. While the stay was fine, it was not memorable or offers a reason for a repeat stay.

Room Tip: Try to get higher room if the typical NYC noise is bothersome.

My wife and I just returned from 3 nights at the giraffe. It is a cozy hotel in Manhattan away from the hustle and bustle. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The most important asset of this hotel is their staff. Always a smile on their faces, never in too much of a hurry to help you and happy to be there. We plan to come back.

Room Tip: We selected a room with a small balcony. Never used the balcony

Our stay was perfect from the moment we arrived. The staff go above and beyond to help with anything one might need.
The room was beautiful and the food great.
This hotel is now where I will stay on future New York trips.

Room Tip: We had a room with balcony which was an added bonus.

Since ordinary N.Y. hotels can be pricey, I was curious to see whether the premium for Hotel Giraffe would be worthwhile. It was. Staff were pleasant and helpful. our room was great and public areas - main floor and rooftop bar - were also great.

I just adore this hotel, and will continue to book a room each year for my parents' annual visit to New York City. This time round was the best yet - we were very generously given an upgrade to a suite for the bargain price of an extra $10.
The location of Hotel Giraffe is fantastic - and hanging out on the rooftop garden on a hot summer's day - above and away from the hustle and bustle of midtown Manhattan was absolute bliss.
The staff go out of their way in their level of service...
Hotel Giraffe has managed to incorporate all the comforts and amenities of a chain brand hotel, but has also created a unique, boutique atmosphere at the same time.
The complimentary cheese and wine, served to guests in the lounge each evening contributed hugely to the 'special' factor, which this hotel certainly has. This being particularly special as it it's in a city full of not-very-special and rather over-priced hotels.
My only complaint would be how noisy the air-conditioning is in the room.
Expensive but worth it. We'll be back next year.

Room Tip: A balcony room over-looking Park Avenue is truly special.
