With New York Fashion Week just around the corner, it's high time to look for a stylish accommodation in Manhattan!

Located in the vibrant NoMad neighbourhood, on the corner of Park Avenue South and 26th Street, Hotel Giraffe is in the centre of the action. Surrounded by several shopping and dining venues, this trendy boutique hotel - inspired by the architecture and design of the late Art Deco period - is a perfect place for both business and leisure travellers.

Hotel Giraffe offers 72 spacious guestrooms and the most generous package of luxury amenities in New York City. Other attractions include cosy rooftop terrace where you can enjoy a cocktail and relax outdoors without living the hotel.


Hotel Giraffe was shown in the first Sex and the City: The Movie. The penthouse (1202) was transformed into Mr. Big's apartment in the film; other scenes were shot in the hotel as well. 

Hotel Giraffe is a member of the Library Hotel Collection. We also had a chance to visit unique Library Hotel last year. You can read about our experience here.

Chic Accommodation

Room 507 was spacious and comfortable. It featured private balcony overlooking Park Avenue, king size bed with a huge selection of pillows, large working desk, and a modern bathroom with complimentary toiletries, plush bathrobes, and waffle weave slippers.

"The guestrooms include 10ft ceilings, antique-rose velveteen upholstered chairs and ottomans, and black and white original photographs from the '20s and '30s. Chic and contemporary linens, chocolate leather headboards and pearlized platinum wall coverings offer a touch of glamour in each guest room." - Hotel Giraffe
