My husband and 2 sons had a 2 queen juliet balcony room on the 7th floor for 4 nights. The continental breakfast each morning in the lobby was a life saver and a wonderful spread. The wine and cheese was a wonderful perk each afternoon. How can you beat that? I loved the simplicity of design of the rooms and...

Everything was great. I am a hotel snob and the best way to sum up my 4 night experience is to say I would stay here again as well as refer friends and family here. I look forward to returning. Thank you to all the staff for the royal treatment.

Hotel Giraffe was fantastic!! We stayed here for over 10 nights and it was amazing. Rooms were big and the room was incredibly welcoming. The housekeeping were fantastic and cleaned the room every day as well as did a turn down service every night. The wine / cheese every evening was very much appreciated and we would like to say...

All these rave reviews are true - I had a great experience at Hotel Giraffe. It's a great location near union square park/Flatiron and the subway right there. The room was well-appointed and spacious. Lots of storage space from closets to drawers, and more bathroom storage than you usually see: a drawer, a long shelf and a huge counter. Several...

An excellent hotel and staff for road warriors visiting NYC for business. The location of the hotel makes it ideal to find quick meals or long business dinners. The staff will always treat you like this is your home away from home.
