The hotel serves a small breakfast every day and wine and cheese in the pre-evening. The rooms are clean, quite large and fresh. If you're not used to city hustle...

This hotel was wonderful from check in to check out. It is a small boutique hotel that is warm and welcoming. We had two rooms, one a king bed room with a separate sitting area and another room with two queen beds. Both rooms were very comfortable. Nice linens and nice towels too. The queen room actually had a small...

Excellent location. Beautiful room, clean and fresh. Huge clean bathroom. Do not hesitate to book here, it is so close to Gramercy Tavern and Eataly. The staff is super friendly. Enjoy any variety of coffee or espresso all day along with free baked goods. I will be back.

Great boutique Hotel in a great location... Terrific service and a friendly, helpful staff who were available at all times. Room was clean and nice with a balcony overlooking Park Avenue South. There is a nice rooftop garden and bar along and a nice lower floor restaurant. Didn't love the Tv Stand/Desk in the room, but the little bar area...

I have always booked Hotel Giraffe as they offer balcony rooms, that allow for easy access for smokers (Gross, I know, blah blah blah) without disrupting others. Upon my last trip I was informed that this was no longer allowed on the property, and as a result I may need to look into other options in the Flat Iron/Kips Bay...

We were looking for a comfortable hotel below 42nd st. Hotel on Park Avenue. Great service. Suite was surprisingly quiet. Well fitted out. Recommend this hotel as good value. Enjoyed complimentary access to coffee, snack and fruit 24 hours in the lobby with espresso coffee machine.

This small hotel has it all: central location, comfortable room (relatively spacious for NYC), well-maintained, friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast included, and a good value. I'll stay here again when in NYC.
