“Would go back”
Reviewed 1 October 2009

This is a great Midtown Manhattan hotel. It's basically rooms and a lobby. But the lobby is very pleasant and the Cheese and Wine every evening a nice touch. You can order food in you room from local restaurants but hey - in Manhattan why would you want to eat in? The staff cannot be more helpful. I only deduct one star because of the Tribeca Limos farce which is nothing to do with the Hotel (although arranged through them). I would definitely use the Hotel Giraffe again if nothing else to re-read the book in the room called Tall Blondes - about Giraffes!

This is a lovely place to stay and a very convenient location. The service was excellent - everyone on the staff was friendly and eager to help in any way they could. The breakfast was fresh and delicious, and we really appreciated that it was available until 10:30 am. The wine, cheese and fresh veggies served in the evening was a welcome treat after our frenzied days in the city. The lounge where the breakfast and happy hour are served is elegant and comfortable - we enjoyed watching the activity on Park Ave. from this peaceful spot. A computer is set up in the lounge for free internet use. Our room was small, but we expect that in NY. It was spotless and quiet, with plenty of horizontal space to hold all the toiletries and various things my husband and I always seem to bring with us. We appreciated the free bottled water provided in the room, though we had to request it after the first day. The only negative was the bed. It wasn't horrible, but it fell below what you would expect in a 4 star hotel. I honestly felt the coils of the mattress - though the linens are excellent and we did end up getting used to the bed after the first night. Despite this, we would definitely stay here again!

Stylish, discreet hotel in central location. Spacious room, tastefully decorated, with a balcony overlooking Park Avenue. Got an excellent 'early bird discount' by booking 30+ days in advance. Would certainly stay at this hotel again.

Again this year our stay was super. Easy check in and love the breakfast and evening wine. We have stayed in a variety of rooms and they are wonderful. You cannot beat the Juliet balcony. We hope to return next year as well.

We stayed at the Hotel Giraffe for two nights last week to celebrate my 50th birthday. The Giraffe is wonderful: great location, lovely rooms, weather was perfect for the rooftop bar, breakfast/appetizers were a great value and the staff was exceptional. This will be our destination for all future NYC visits!

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.

We enjoyed the Giraffe for its location, for its comfortable, spacious, well-equipped rooms, convenient grab-it-and-go breakfast, and helpful staff.
Our bedroom on the 10th floor was pretty quiet - especially for Manhattan. - and larger than we'd expected.
We liked the free internet access from the hotel's laptop in the foyer, enabling us to print our flight boarding passes easily.
Overall, a very pleasant stay at an unpretentious but classy hotel.
