We stayed for 3 nights in April 2014 - 2 adults 2 children. The room was spotless, big enough (you shouldn't be spending too long in your room in NYC!!). Great location for exploring both uptown and downtown, and a quieter area so it's good to get away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square etc. The evening wine...

Great hotel with most helpful & welcoming staff.Very comfortable &quiet(by New York standards!) bedrooms. Breakfasts are good & afternoon wine & canapés most enjoyable. Hotel is well placed for metro mid & downtown.a large number of varied eating houses close by,would recommend a visit to Eataly the other side of Madison Square on 5th Avenue.

We stayed here with my husband and 7-year old daughter last June. We had a fantastic stay and we really loved this hotel. The 'cheese and wine' happy hour was fantastic and a great touch; the breakfasts were amazing too. The hotel has a really warm feel about it - the staff are excellent. Our room (a suite with balcony)...

Please don't look at the Giraffe because then I can't have it all to myself! Excellent location, beyond-gracious staff, comfortable and oversized-by-NY-standards rooms = high value given all of those assets. We love staying here and chose it for a couple of anniversary trips, our 14th the most recent on the last weekend of March. Gramercy neighborhood is super, great...

The only negative about the hotel is I had just one night to stay here this time! I've been to NYC many times and this is by far the best hotel that I've stayed at there. It was clean, the staff were all super nice and helpful and it's in a great location, on Park and 26th. It's pretty close...

My husband and I had a delightful weekend at Hotel Giraffe. The staff was consistently helpful and gracious, offering assistance with things like filling our ice bucket or hailing a taxi, and pointing out the many wonderful features of the hotel like the complimentary wine and cheese hour and the discount at the affiliated restaurant, Bread & Tulips (which was...

The Giraffe has become my standard hotel in New York. Functionally located on the 6 train line (that serves most the places I visit). Deeply friendly. Comfortable. Clean. Doesn't nickel-and-dime you with extra charges. I have now spent about 30 nights there - and I have plenty of other options. Its almost home. -- As a regular guests there are...

Stayed here on business March 27-29, 2014. The hotel staff has excellent and very attentive customer service. They anticipate or assist with every need. You don't experience service like that often. Great rooms with everything you need, nice chocolates at turn down service and great amenitites through the day (breakfast, coffee/snacks, wine/cheese reception), etc. Location is great too. Near everything,...
