For a Classy Stay in the Big Apple: Hotel Giraffe in New York City

I stayed in this amazing #hotel in #NewYork, the Hotel Giraffe. Its central location, friendly staff, tasty #foodanddrink and luxurious rooms made it a great choice for a very comfortable few nights. A great spot for some #relaxation in a busy city!

One of the highlights about my trip to New York City this year was to experience a couple of great hotels in the Big Apple. I had heard a lot of great things about the hotels in New York, about how nice and beautiful they were.

I was able to stay at two luxurious hotels during my time in NY, the first one I stayed was the Library Hotel and the second one I stayed at was Hotel Giraffe, another classy hotel in the Library Hotel collection.

The location of the Hotel Giraffe is very convenient and it worked for me since I was attending an internet marketing event very close from Times Square. 

from  $284.34

From Hotel Giraffe it only took me 15 minutes walking and in the summer, it’s a really nice walk since it gave me a chance to explore and see the city. The subway station is one block away so I had no excuse to be late to my event.

Staff and Service

When I arrived at the front door of the hotel, a hotel staff member opened the door and asked me right away if I needed any help with my luggage. Since I was carrying just one little bag I told him no and he kindly showed me the way to the lobby.

I think greeting your clients makes such a difference as a hotel since it makes them feel welcome from the first minute they step onto the property. I automatically felt comfortable and appreciated having someone show me the way.

The staff from the front desk were extremely nice with me when I told them that this was my first time in New York City. They told me where to go, how to get to different places and they even gave me a map which they marked all the places I wanted to visit. They even wrote the different ways to get back to the hotel just in case I got lost which I found was extremely helpful. I’ve never been in a city so big before and it’s a little confusing for the first time.

Something else I appreciated was that I arrived at the hotel around 12:30 pm. Although check-in was at 3 pm, they kept my luggage while I went to check the city until my room was ready.

If you’re around the hotel from 5-8PM, they offer a free wine and cheese service which I took advantage of 😀

My Room

My room was the balcony suite with 1 king bed so I had a separate sleeping area and living room area. So much space! You could perfectly fit 3 or 4 people in here with more than enough space.

With modern decorations, incredibly comfortable furniture (I didn’t want to get out of bed), a desk and so many extra amenities, I had everything I needed and more for an extremely comfortable stay in luxury.

The bathroom had a big tub, lots of towels and was very clean. They also give you fluffy robes which is not a common thing in Costa Rica so I enjoyed relaxing in my comfy robe and the bottle of wine that night .


One thing I loved the most was that they actually wrote me a card with our tan feet pictures inside! That was an extremely kind personal gesture which you don’t usually receive from other hotels.

The Hotel Giraffe also includes breakfast with delicious bagels, different kind of bread, yogurts and fruits. Everything was fresh and their coffee was really good!

Overall Thoughts

I loved my time at Hotel Giraffe and hope to go back again when we visit New York City. Samantha couldn’t come with me this time and was a little (actually a lot) jealous when she saw all my pictures of my room. So next time I’d like to enjoy it with her!

The room is beautifully decorated, comfortable and has everything you need for a great time in New York City. The staff are wonderful, you can ask them for anything and they’re willing to help. I couldn’t think of a better place or had a better experience for my first time to NYC!

The name of the hotel is very unique and memorable, there’s not many giraffe hotels around. They mirror their philosophy after one of the most beloved animals on earth to make their hotel elegant and exquisite just like a giraffe.

If you go to New York City for vacation or business definitely look up Hotel Giraffe. With a great location and decent price for NYC, you can’t ask for anything more. It’s good for business travelers, couples for a romantic getaway or families. Or really just anyone who is visiting NYC and wants to stay at one of the nicest hotels in the area.
