I recently stayed at the Hotel Giraffe with my aunt and sister. We reserved the king suite with balcony view which was perfect for the 3 of us. It was spacious enough and the main bedroom had doors to separate it from the living area. The bathroom was a nice size, although with only one sink. Our tub was clogged...

Back to Hotel Giraffe after 3 years to confirm that this is one of the best options in NY. Same good service, nice room, good complimentary breakfast and happy hour, free wi-fi are among the good reasons for keeping coming back.

Agree with most everything written about the Giraffe, it was a really nice hotel with great furnishings in the rooms and top quality throughout. Location in lower midtown is also excellent. But what really sets it apart is the wine and cheese and free breakfast in the lounge/open room on the main floor; both were very good, much better than...

Nice hotel, beautiful decor, spacious room with a floor to ceiling window. The breakfast is good and we loved the happy hour with sparkling wine, red wine, fruits, pastries, nuts. Very good price x benefits. I had a lot of packages coming in and they hold all of them withou charge.

Just about every aspect of this hotel was outstanding, especially the service and attention to detail. I have stayed at many hotels in NYC, most of which cost more and deliver a lot less. The hotel room even featured a nice little balcony for some fresh air and a view of the city streets. I will be back!

Great experience as usual at The Giraffe. New construction compared to older hotels; still have air conditioning in guest rooms from Oct-April unlike 95% of most other NYC hotels. That is critical on warm fall or spring days in orderto sleep at night. Staff is great; never snobbish. Highly recommend.

NYC is one busy city 24/7, but you can get away from the madding crowds at this little hotel. Suite room was large enough for a 6 night stay and pretty well appointed. With a good coffee bar, continental breakfast each AM and live piano jazz, wine and cheese each afternoon at 5:00 PM the house offers an almost sophisticated...
