... irony of a statue for Liberty being a Lady, but ladies didn't have the liberty to attend was not one to miss, so apparently they just hired every other boat in town and turned up anyway, on the water. Between the crowds on shore and the privileged men on the island at the ceremony. Go girls!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Giraffe New York City
A Wonderfully Different Experience
I stayed at the Hotel Giraffe with my husband on Valentine's Day evening. This hotel came highly recommended by my boss, so I thought I would give it a try. I was impressed! We stayed in a suite that was very clean and comfortable. Our room did not have a view, but that was o.k. The refreshment area in the lobby was fantastic. I especially loved the cappuccino machine!!! The price is more than what I normally spend for a hotel, but I would definitely stay there again for another special occasion.
A wonderful hotel, highly recommended!
I have stayed here twice & am planning another trip for the holidays. I loved this place. You can't beat the location or the service. The districts diverse shops and excellent restaurants draw New Yorkers day and night. The historic Petes Tavern helps New York treasure its past while the numerous "Silicon Alley" internet companies bring the city into the future. A wonderful hotel, highly recommended.
Hotel Giraffe was AWESOME!
Hotel Giraffe was by far the best hotel I've stayed in for quite sometime. What was nicest about the hotel was that it was clean. The rooms were clean and they felt clean. We expecially enjoyed the continental breakfast, wine and cheese and coffee area offered each day. The staff were very friendly and the main doors to the hotel were locked throughout the later part of the evening which made me feel very secure. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone. A very pleasant stay. I highly reccomend it!
I chose the Hotel Giraffe because of positive raves from trip.advisor.
My wife and I recently returned from a quick trip to NYC to celebrate our 15th anniversary. I took a chance when booking this hotel only because we had never stayed in NYC overnight. What an unforgettable experience! Everything was done for us with our comfort in mind. The drive up took less time than expected and we were thrilled to be able to check in early. Our champagne and strawberries awaited our arrival from the show that we saw and dinner at Sciuscia (downstairs restaurant) was delicious. The suite was wonderful and the staff made us feel very relaxed. We decided to make the Hotel Giraffe a yearly excursion to celebrate our anniversary.
Absolutely Perfect Stay
My husband and I returned yesterday from NYC -What an outstanding hotel experience. I had never been to the big apple and spent hours online looking for a hotel- I booked with the Hotel Giraffe because of the consistently great reviews and the great deal we got on orbitz.com- the staff, the ambience, the rooms, the freebies (breakfast, coffee bar all day, champagne/wine/cheese and live piano in the evening!!) tastefully decorated and immaculate. I could go on and on...we will definitely return.
Awesome boutique hotel
I stayed at Giraffe Hotel three times already, and it really is my favourite hotel in NYC. I travel there all the time and always seem to go back to Giraffe. It is in a very nice neighbourhood away from the rowdy tourists. The place is very very clean. the rooms are quite spacious; the bathrooms are superb. I guarantee that you'll love this hotel. Everything is so comfortable. the amenitis are excellent The service is very efficient. Every evening prior to going out, I enjoy a few minutes of live piano playing in the lobby. and everyboby seems happy as well. I know i'll stay there the next time i go to NY. Very highly recommended.
Stayed at the Giraffe for a weekend and loved it. The staff was great- very attentive and remembered my name. The constant availability of water, snacks and wine/cheese at night was a great touch. The rooms were large by NYC standards as was the bathroom- beautifully appointed as well. Would stay here again.
When they get it right, they REALLY get it right: I stayed at the Hotel Giraffe last week for business and they are getting it right. After consulting TripAdvisor before my stay, i decided to return and add my accolades for this lovely spot. I stay in a lot of hotels and grew up in the hotel business, so I'm always interested to try someplace new. Usually fairly critical, I found NOTHING lacking at this wonderful little haven.This hotel is what the W Hotels in the city purport to be, but for them, it's a strategic concept. At the Hotel Giraffe, it's truly who they are. Hip, intimate, comfortable, welcoming, with flawless service. During my visit I encountered businessmen & women, a cooler-than-cool alternative musician, a shy family from Portugal on holiday, a model on a photoshoot in the lobby, and a young mid-western couple, and miraculously, all seemed to feel completely at home, and in their element. (Generally, I find manhattan hotels cater exclusively towards either a) budget-concerned, fanny-packing tourists, b) impossibly hip scene-sters, see ..., or c) wealthy private-clubbers who fancy themselves "the elite."The Hotel Giraffe is neither a tour-group home-base, nor a pretentious scene, nor does it promote the feeling of snooty exclusivity: this gem of a hotel gets it just right. Intimate elegance, with just enough schwank to make it glamorous, yet with enough comfort to make all feel welcome. The staff has the non-solicitous, honestly friendly service of a small european inn. The rooms are larger than many in New York, but are still petite. Still, they make the most of the space. No detail is spared, from the unexpected fine wood built-ins, to the satin, quilted spread, and the well-appointed bathroom and amenities. The flowered balcony was a much-appreciated bonus.I returned from late nights working to turn-down service with dimmed lights, soft music, rich chocolates and a remote controlled privacy shade already lowered. The lobby breakfast and rooftop garden are perfect for business or pleasure travelers alike. A house laptop, with DSL connection downstairs, kept me from being cooped up in my room answering email. Stayed for the week on business, and it's the first time I ever felt like i was "going home" when reaching my hotel at the end of a work day. Marvelous.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Giraffe. Our rooms was quite big, very clean they had a nice turndown service where they even put the radio on for you!
There was complimentary breakfast, espresso, bottled water and evening wine and cheese. The restaurant below the hotel was quite good with a great server and attentive staff. The hotel staff were so accomadating and pleasant. I would reccomend and stay there again.
