Hotel Giraffe New York Reviews
Luscious room, fantastic view, top standard accommodation by any standards. Mar 30, 2010
Luscious room, fantastic view, top standard accommodation by any standards. I'm not entirely sure what the price is for other rooms, but I paid $499 for a Deluxe room - one night. Admittedly, it was slightly more than I would usually be willing to pay for something I couldn’t take home to look at, (bar a flight of course) but if I were to do it all again, I wouldn’t hesitate to pay the bill twice. (ok, maybe not twice, cos that would be silly)
The lobby area boats a Grand Piano, swanky drinks bar and some classy music to put any traveller at instant rest. If someone were to be blindfolded and taken inside, I would say the victim could quite easily mistake the location for a gentleman’s club before guessing it was a Hotel lobby. But then, I’ve never been to a gentleman’s club so I could be talking utter rubbish here too. Moving on....
Right in the centre of Manhattan, you cant go wrong with this work of art that is a hotel. A few seconds walk to the nearest tube station, (or subway as they like to call it in The US, not sure why cos I don’t remember seeing a sandwich menu anywhere – beside the point) and a wealth of taxis to be hailed right from the hotel door step.
The room was very spacious, although it was comprised of a bedroom, mini hall, bathroom and living area. Top athletes would find space to practice in this place. I always request the room to be as high as possible for the view. In this case, I wasn’t disappointed. Everything I had dreamt a New York Hotel View should be, is what it was. Lush complimentary bathrobes are available for use within the room – as is an umbrella. (You would have to purchase them if you desired to take them out. Yes, even the umbrella)
Bathroom was again, spacious, clean and very comfortable to be in. I could see how people may have trouble using the toilet in fear of spoiling the ambient purity of the room.
Free internet is available. If you don’t have your own computer, facilities are provided.
Close to many forms of public transport.
Helpful polite staff.
Just being in the hotel has a way of making you feel special!
Not for you if you wont be spending much time in the room. Better off getting somewhere cheaper.
