Map & Directions

The flat rate for a cab from JFK to Manhattan is $52, plus tip and tolls,and the journey takes 30-40 minutes. A cheaper option is to take the AirTrain from JFK to Jamaica Station and change to the E subway line into Manhattan. You'll need to switch to the 6 line in Manhattan at 53rd Street heading downtown to the 28th Street station. The hotel is then one block away.

Described by Frommer's as "a real charmer with a calm, intimate feel", the elegant Hotel Giraffe offers guests a surprising array of free extras, including a wine and cheese reception, continental breakfast each morning (that you can invite a friend or family member to) and more. It is in an excellent location on Park Avenue, a short walk from the Empire State Building, Greenwich Village and Madison Square Gardens.

Extras continue in the rooms, with umbrellas to borrow, chocolates at turndown, 'pillow tops' on request, plus complimentary Wi-Fi. Guests also get free access to any New York Sports Club -- the nearest one is two blocks away.

The quiet rooms have high ceilings and small balconies overlooking Central Park, giving them a roomy feel. Upgrade to a suite for extra space and a separate living room with full-sized sofa bed -- they are particularly handy for families. The plush penthouse was used as Mr Big's apartment in the first 'Sex & the City' film.

The Italian Bread & Tulips Restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, with hearty pastas, meatballs and pizza pies cooked in an authentic Italian pizza oven. The garden on the 12th floor is exclusive to guests during the day and is a pleasant spot to sit and enjoy a free coffee or breakfast. It's open all year round but there is also a bar up here in warmer months with views of the surrounding skyline.

From the press:
  • "Excellent soundproofing means that when you close the French windows and draw the salmon-pink drapes, it's easy to forget you're above one of New York's busiest thoroughfares" -- Condé Nast Traveller
  • "A real charmer with a calm, intimate feel" -- Frommer's
  • "Up a notch in posh from most of the boutiques this far south, the new 12-floor Giraffe earns its stripes, or dots, with sleek, modern rooms and a sunny rooftop area for drinks or tapas" -- Lonely Planet
