Stayed in a suite for five days with my wife at the end of June. My wife had stayed before on business trips. I was unfamiliar with the neighborhood but had walked by the hotel before while strolling down Park Ave. This is a great, small hotel and very well-priced for New York. First, the staff are all first rate... More

Great little hotel. This was our first trip to New York . We almost booked a hotel over near Time Square but were so glad we didn't when we saw the volume of tourists . It was a relief to come back to this hotel (away from the noisy tourists) in the evening and have a glass of wine in... More

The hotel Giraffe is a wonderful botique hotel in the heart of Park Avenue New York. The rooms are well appointed and spacious and the balcony is a nice way to get a feel for the heart of New York.

We just returned from a 7 day stay at the Hotel Giraffe and loved every moment! This hotel is very conveniently located just a couple of blocks from major subway connections and a 3 min. walk away from beautiful Madison Square Park and the Shake Shack! The rooms were large, extremely clean, and comfortable. The shower had great water pressure... More

I stayed here last summer and fell bad for not writing review. I was very happy with my room which had balcony that I never had at any hotels in NYC.

This hotel in conveniently located on Park Ave. Rooms are clean and nicely sized for NYC. We had trouble closing the window treatments, but that was the only problem with our balconied room. Included with your room are wine and snacks in the evening and a quite adequete breakfast. The hotel also has a nice roof bar.

Everything about the Hotel Giraffe is beautiful and comfortable. There is no pretension here. The lobby was a great place for relaxing and working. The wine and cheese reception was perfect way to unwind at the end of the day. It was also very nice to return to such a comfortable, clean, quiet room. The turn down service was a... More

We stayed here for six nights in late June. We had a two room suite, with two parents in the bedroom and two kids on a pull out couch. The room was clean and, by Manhattan standards, fairly spacious. The complimentary breakfast in the morning helps take some of the financial sting off a family vacation in Manhattan, and the... More

This is our fifth stay at the Giraffe. Couldn't be happier with the rooms, amenities and location. There are many more posh hotels to stay in New York, the Mandarin Oriental, Four Seasons etc. but at this price point, the Giraffe is hard to beat.

We liked everything about the Hotel, starting with the friendly and really helpful staff. The room was beautiful, spotlessly clean and assiduously maintained throughout our stay. I could not say enough good things about the housekeeping staff, they were marvellous. The atmosphere in the Giraffe Hotel is relaxed and the girls who oversaw the breakfast were lovely and very helpful.... More

“My guest room was comfortable and well-appointed. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, which is very important to me. Two suggestions in the bathroom: The plastic non-slip bath mat was rolled up and tucked away on the bottom shelf of the shelf. I didn't readily see it, and I unfortunately slipped and fell during my first shower, causing some injury. Recommend you have it out near the bathtub to avoid future liability. Also, I recommend comfort heigth commodes, please (I'm 60 years old).”
