A lovely hotel with very friendly staff - we will be returning soon. The rooms are plenty big enough, the breakfast great, and the evening reception a great way to unwind after a day exploring the City. If the weather is good - go up to the 12th floor and relax on the roof terrace ... a hidden gem.

At every turn, Hotel Giraffe delivered a little more than we expected. The continental breakfast included espresso drinks, fresh fruit, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs -- lots of good choices. The amenities included slippers, robes, umbrellas -- nothing was overlooked. The room had live plants artfully arranged. The housekeeping staff did a great job, too. We could not have been more pleased.

We have stayed at the Hotel Giraffe multiple times and, each time we are there, we are totally pleased. The service is great. The staff go out of their way to be helpful, including having our car parked and ready hours before we needed it. We enjoy the breakfast and wine/cheese reception each day in the lovely lobby. The room...

I travelled for work, because of the relationship with RRU Research and I definitely would come back/ recommend it to others. My favorite memory is the lovely Gabriela at breakfast and cocktail hour. After spending long days in an office, it was so refreshing to have such a smart, kind person to talk with. It was only a few minutes...

Favorite hotel in NYC. Great staff, comfortable rooms, wonderful lobby. Breakfast and wine in the afternoon are great. Location is unbeatable. And they even play good music in the lobby. If you want a boutique this is a good one. Sister Hotel Elysee also terrific.

Rooms were beautiful; lobby is comfortable and pretty. Breakfast and wine/cheese reception is generous and delicious. I highly recommend this hotel. Location was good for meetings in mid-town and east village.

Incredible service from a young staff team. Gabriella continues to be an asset to the hotel making wine time a very pleasant end to what can be an exhausting day of sightseeing. Together with the breakfast, tea and coffee service, plus very comfortable rooms we found the Hotel Giraffe a haven in what is a very busy city.

My wife and I have travelled the world and stayed in a lot of hotels. Sometimes you stay in beautiful properties but the attitude of the staff leaves a bad impression, not so with Hotel Giraffe. The property is well presented and the staff really do enhance the experience. Located in mid-town New York the property provides access to all...
