The Hotel Giraffe ~

Our fourth and final stay with the Library Hotel Collection was at the Hotel Giraffe; a sleek, tall, and beautiful hotel, just like a Giraffe!

The Hotel Giraffe

What guests of the Hotel Giraffe can expect to find is the same high standard of excellence available at all four boutique hotels within the Library Hotel Collection in New York.  And, guess what?  We walked to each and every hotel, one from the next.  Each morning we’d pack up and head to our next destination.  Who says NYC is not a walkable city?!  We had a great time, it was like a mini treasure hunt each morning.  We’d enter the address in to our GPS and off we went in search of our next stay.  Loved it!  It made our stay in NYC so much more interesting.

Off to Explore the City

We checked in and dropped off our bags mid morning and then took off to explore the city. We walked for miles.  It was a warm beautiful August day and we couldn’t think of a better way to begin than with an al fresco brunch at Jacob’s Pickles, which we highly recommend, fantastic food!  After brunch we let the city dictate our path. A stroll through Central Park, a visit to The Neue Gallery and The Met and finally, a stop St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which is stunning!

The Evening Respite

By the time we returned to the Hotel Giraffe in the early evening, it was time to once again enjoy a relaxing respite with a glass of champagne, delicious olives, nuts and a selection of cheese.  Let me tell you, we were getting mighty spoiled by night four, but it’s all part of the service, and what service it was! We cozied up together on a small comfortable sofa, sipped champagne and listened to the lovely piano music serenade.  It can be stated that this is not my best video, but you get the gist, yes?

A Balcony for Two

There is something special about a boutique hotel, it’s a much more personal experience. And, the Library Hotel Collection leaves the guest completely satisfied.  They’ve thought of everything from continental breakfast each morning, to a wine and cheese reception each evening, with turn down service, extraordinarily friendly and professional staff, and comfortable rooms that are amply supplied with amenities. What we especially loved at the Hotel Giraffe was our cozy balcony for two.  Our room was definitely lovely but it was extra nice to enjoy the balcony on a warm summer evening.

If you find yourself in New York, and really you should, we suggest you also find yourself at one of the four boutique hotels in The Library Hotel Collection.

Cheers!

Cheers!  And, yes, that is a Mimosa.
