We decided to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary in New York. I was just about to book the Hilton when my husband stopped me, he had just found a review of Hotel Giraffe. As it was a special trip we booked the Terraced Suite. We had a great flight and arrived full of excitement and a little trepidation, you know what it's like, you want something to be good and you can be a little disappointed. Not a bit of it, this place exceeded our expectations. The hotel is in a great location, literally a short stroll to the lovely Madison Park which is worth a visit - check out the live music on Saturday nights. We wanted to do as much by foot as possible and we found we could. But if you get tired there is a subway round the corner from the hotel.
But what about the hotel itself? Our terraced suite was beautifully appointed, roomy and with lots of wardrobe space. The view from the 9th floor was great and we heard no traffic. The Roof Terrace is wonderful, a beautifully calm space.
The breakfast was lovely. Everything was well stocked and fresh. I have to give a special mention to the staff who worked at breakfast and in the evening. They were so nice, always greeting you with a smile and nothing was any trouble. The cheese and wine is really good.
I really loved this place. It has all the touches you expect of a good hotel, but none of the corporate stuff you tend to get in big chains. On our first night we were delighted to receive an anniversary card and complimentary wine.
All I have to do now is save up for another trip, and it will be back to this hotel. Loved it. Great staff, great location and fabulous room.
