The Hotel Giraffe far exceeded my expectations. I was so happy with our suite -- the bed and linens were great. The bathroom was very comfortable. The staff attended to our every need. The breakfast and happy hour was a real bonus. The staff were very hospitable and personable. The hotel is well located, near restaurants and a park. Highly...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 February 2017 via mobile

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...

Hotel Giraffe is comfortable, warm and welcoming. Location is great for walking and subway. Nice restaurants nearby. I wish the weather cooperated so we could have enjoyed the roof deck. Daily amenities include a great continental breakfast and wine and cheese reception. The staff are all very accommodating, but Gabriela is exceptional! This was our second visit and we will...

Great atmosphere, friendly happy and personable staff and impeccably clean rooms. Lovely breakfast and evening cocktails! I plan to stay there again. For New York City the hotel Giraffe can't be beat.

Really appreciated the breakfast, snacks and Happy Hour that were included! Close enough to all the action - but in a quiet section. 230 fifth was a great rooftop bar and close to Madison Square Park and the Flatiron Building

Great location. Enjoyed the wine and cheese before our shows. Front desk was lots of help for restaurants/directions. They handled a "visitor" at breakfast very well. Breakfast service was very quick and friendly. Comfortable room for 3 of us. Thanks.

The Giraffe is a lovely boutique hotel well-located in the NoMad neighborhood. We were able to walk everywhere! The rooms are very comfortable and well-appointed. Very quiet, too, even though we were across from the elevator. Though the breakfast was continental as promised, we would have liked a few more protein options. The evening wine and cheese was very nicely...

My daughter treated me to 5 days in Manhattan and selected this hotel from a number she looked at. Excellent choice. At first we were baffled at the lack of Guest Info book which you get in every hotel and the explanation seemed a bit of a duff excuse for an oversight. But as time went on we understood their...

Thank you to your excellent staff especially to Gabriella who made our trip to NY just fabulous. 5 adults, 3 lovely rooms and our trip of 10 days was outstanding. Congratulations Hotel Giraffe for making our stay easy and more than enjoyable. We will definitely be recommending this hotel to all our Australian friends.

Went for birthday weekend in NYC. Looked long and hard at options and loved the website and other reviews. Everything we hoped in terms of location comfort and service! Nice personal touches including unrequested chilled champagne for my wife on arrival! Nice afternoon wine service with friendly servers. Walk to great wine bars restaurants. Quick Uber to any site.
