Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
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.
