We had amazing service with very friendly, helpful staff. Our room was unusually large for NYC (Classic Guestroom with king bed). Daily continental breakfast was great and daily wine/cheese reception each night was outstanding. Beautiful rooftop seating too. Couldn't have been nicer. Easy to get taxis and the subway.

The Hotel Giraffe is a warm and friendly place to be. The lobby is so comfortable and the staff is so friendly and helpful that people hang around to socialize. The room we had was facing the street and had a small balcony. The room and bath are lovely and very clean. We would definitely stay here again.

I must have stayed in at least 250 hotels in my life for work and vacations, and Hotel Giraffe is the best of the non-resort hotels I have stayed at. We had a one bedroom suite that was large and comfortable and, very important for me, quiet. I could not hear the guests in the adjoining room, and the only...

Hotel Giraffe is lovely. The hotel is relatively small, the staff get to recognize you and go of their way to make sure your holiday runs smoothly. The concierge can offer advice on where to go, how to get there and what and what not to see. The rooms are very clean, and spacious, with a good range of quality...

I like this hotel. The staff are very efficient and pleasant and every request we made - for extra blankets, directions, recommendations - was met with professionalism and genuine interest. The buffet breakfast is just perfect to get you going for the day, and the staff that helped out at the food area/bar throughout the day were very accommodating, even...

What a great hotel. There is a good reason why it rates so highly - basically it is spot on. They do all the important things well and they add some extras too. I took my wife here to celebrate her 40th birthday so I was more than usually concerned that it would fit the bill. I need not have...

We stayed at The Giraffe with family members and one young child. Rooms were very comfortable with nice toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. A buffet breakfast was included and a buffet was laid out every evening - wine and nibble. There was a roof garden with a good view where you could take a glass of wine and enjoy the evening...
