Hotel reviewPosted Jul 14, 2014
Cons: Can't think of anything
Location: Close to many area attractions- quick cab rides. Know your cross streets though as many cab drivers were not familiar with this Hotel
I never would have known about this gem of a Hotel but a friend had stayed and recommended it to me. We loved it! The staff were so courteous and the hotel absolutely incredible. We had a King suite which included a step-out balcony. I have recommended this hotel to everyone I talk to as it only added to our wonderful trip to NY.

2 nightsPosted Jul 5, 2014
Pros: Easy going, polite and friendly staff
Cons: Cannot think of anything but if I was picky I would have liked a comfortable breakfast e.g. chair and table where I did not have to stoop, but was ok.
Location: Good location we like walking so broadway was about 20 mins walk fine for us. And area not to touristy.
Found the hotel very good and thought the cheese and wine evening an excellent idea.

Very nice hotel in a great location. We appreciated the spacious room ( for NY). Room had a decent view of Madison Sq Park about a block away. We look forward to staying here again.

Excellent place to stayPosted Jun 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel was lovely, everything was great - friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms, great location. Wine and cheese evenings are held every day in the hotel foyer which is a great way to relax after a day of sightseeing. The hotel rooftop is also a plus. Would definitely stay again.

Great hotel, will go backPosted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: Good location, clean, safe, friendly, 24hr tea & coffee in lobby, 5pm drinks & nibbles, continental breakfast & most of all the staff were brilliant.
Cons: Bathrooms have a fluted glass door which does not suit us older travellers who their privacy
Location: 2 blocks from subway 6. 10 minutes walk from Union Square. Good deli for sandwiches 3 door up. 1 block to Madison Square park for kids playground.
We had 4 rooms booked for a wedding with an age range from baby to grandparents. Everyone loved the Giraffe. Our room was a double with balcony and was a reasonable size for 2 people and the beds were comfy. The bathroom had a good shower. WiFi was free & fast. There is a nice roof terrace which tends to get booked by private parties. Umbrellas were provided when it rained - nice touch. Good jazz pianist one evening in the lobby. The staff made us feel really welcome & the whole stay was comfortable & relaxing.
