Overview

This is a centrally located hotel with tasty Italian cuisine
There is no fitness center or spa on-site

The Hotel Giraffe is ideal for visitors looking for trendy digs in a desirable location. Sandwiched between Midtown and downtown Manhattan on stylish Park Avenue, the hotel features chic suites decorated with vintage black-and-white 1920s- and 1930s-era photos and rich red hues. Guests love the room decor, but warn that the cacophony of honking horns from the city streets below can sometimes prevent restful sleep. Aside from the decor, accommodations also come equipped with a 40-inch flat-screen TV, complimentary Wi-Fi access and Egyptian linens. When you're ready to paint the town, start your day off with the hotel's complimentary continental breakfast before venturing to one of eclectic array of top attractions at your doorstep. Should you prefer to stay indoors, retire to Bread & Tulips, Hotel Giraffe's intimate restaurant that boasts signature handcrafted pastas and pizza.

Named after owner Henry Kallan's favorite animal (and because of its tall, slender design), the 75-room Hotel Giraffe is an Art Moderne that will appeal to fans of NoMad architecture, the trendy neighborhood restaurants, and fans of 'Sex and the City: The Movie' (in which the hotel was prominently featured).

The central pulse of the hotel’s life is the lobby. If it’s not the all-day newspapers and coffee, it’s the complimentary wine & cheese, all offered to the soundtrack of a nightly live pianist.
