My wife and myself along with our friends would like to thank the Giraffe hotel and it's staff for an absolutely amazing stay , this hotel really does look after you from the moment you arrive till the sad point when you have to leave . The location alone does not do this hotel justice , it's the whole package where nothing seems to be a problem for them , from giving you information to making last minute restaurant and broadway show bookings for you and making it a very happy stress free holiday . We shall certainly be returning .

Room Tip: Corner suites are brilliant

We stayed at Hotel Giraffe for 3 nights for a NYC get away weekend. Great location, just 2 blocks from the subway. So easy to get around the city from the hotel. Great service, including a pre-arrival email and phone call offering assistance with anything we might need (tickets, reservations, etc.). The complimentary breakfast and evening wine & cheese was a lovely addition. We would definitely stay here again.

I hesitate to share this little gem of a place on Park Avenue South. Warm and welcoming with breakfast, all day coffee and cookies , and a happy hour with drinks and nibbles all included. The staff are delightful, accommodation clean and comfortable and only two blocks from the Subway. Will certainly return.

Spent 2 days in Manhattan visiting our son and close family. The Hotel Giraffe was in a perfect location for us to walk to restaurants and parks. The staff was extremely helpful even before our arrival answering questions, suggesting restaurants and making difficult to obtain brunch reservations. BTW they were excellent suggestions! Dinner at Bread and Tulips was also very good. Appreciated amenities (included!) are the breakfast spread and the evening wine and cheese! They even had cookies out for night! Also, beautiful and relaxing rooftop patio! We will definitely return!

Stayed in June 2012 & after research opted for Giraffe. Absolutely perfect for 2 newbies to NYC.
Very central to so much & after breakfast in their Lobby Cafe well equipted to absorb all on offer in Manhattan. Loved the Highline, the grand art nouveau buildings such as the Villard Houses, & the atmosphere of Greenwich Village & L'il Italy...plus the other typical 'must see' sites.
Drinks on the rooftop terrace ( with the Giraffe!) before heading out for Dinner...& Times Square
in the evening.
Return to the sumptuous bed to relax...before doing it all over again.

Room Tip: prior tip was get a room above level 6.

Friends recommended this and I decided to try it even though it was a bit more upmarket than what I would usually stay in. The service has been excellent, the rooms are clean and very comfy and QUIET. There is a complimentary continentalish style breakfast that is all I needed as well as an espresso machine with fresh fruit & pastries available all day too. Whenever I asked for advice to get somewhere the staff provided excellent information, with a smile. Love this place

Room Tip: My room was 1003 and was very quiet

Honestly, We can not fault anything about this hotel.
The King Bed Room with balcony, has been very comfortable for our 7 night stay. The service level has been noticeably outstanding both in the room cleaning, the evening bed turn down service, front desk, and in the lobby lounge, for both breakfast and the evening free wine and nibbles. A special mention must be made for Gabi in the lobby lounge. With great restaurants in the local area, a 15 minute walk to the Empire State Building, a 10 minute taxi ride to Times Square and the theatres, and a subway station just 2 blocks away, it is definitely a great location too.
