This was our first trip to NY and found this hotel through TripAdvisor, the hotel and location you cannot fault, what we expected really, but it is the staff that made this experience so memorable for us. The very first night, 2 weary travellers arrived late in the evening to a very warm welcome and a cold bottle of complementary...

Room #603. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and polite. Serving a continental breakfast each morning and hors d'oeuvres each evening was superb. I especially liked the friendly atmosphere it encouraged amid the sharing of ideas. JR particularly helpful. Left my house keys somewhere "safe" in room #603. Please notify me when they are found. I will definitely recommend The Giraffe to...

We could not be more happy with our recent stay in Hotel Giraffe. Location is very good (close to all highlights, on the corner of Madison Square Park, 3 subway stations within 2 minutes walk), and which we loved, in a calm area so no Times Square madness here. We only met friendly and helpfull employees. Especially Gabriella is a...

Our first visit to this fine hotel was in 2014. We returned again to find the same well-managed property, a lovely staff, a comfortable room and fine amenities. First--location. The Giraffe is about a mile from Grand Central Station, near subway stops, and an easy walk to restaurants, etc. in the Flatiron area. While this is not a budget venue,...

We stayed for five nights in May. We found the hotel to be nicely appointed. The room was generously sized for NY and had more than enough for our needs. The staff were all excellent. The wine and cheese reception was an unusual offering but great! There was someone playing piano during the reception each day, which was a lovely...

We loved this hotel! I was in NYC with my Mum and Sister in Law for a weekend and we booked a suite in this hotel for the three of us, purely based on how good the reviews were - and we were not disappointed. It is, perhaps, a bit underwhelming when you first arrive - no glitzy lobby etc....

Very welcoming, excellent decor and design, comfortable rooms, had a suite which is not a lot more than a normal room; a big plus is the free breakfast in the morning and wine and canapes at 5pm - akin to an executive lounge and very popular. Only negative for me was the specific location, just a few blocks away from...

We have stayed at the Giraffe many times over the past several years and have always had a great experience. From the bell staff and front desk management (wish I had the names) to the service in the lobby(Gabriela and more...) there is an unusual effort to accommodate all guests. A wonderful place to start or finish your day in...
