Where do I begin? I had the best wedding ever at the Hotel Giraffe.

First of all, Emily White, the event planner, is a rock star. I felt completely comfortable with her from the moment I met her. She had great suggestions and was always immediately responsive to phone calls and e-mails. Love that. And on my wedding day, I didn't worry about a thing--I knew she had everything completely under control. She was masterful.

The space is beautiful. And the food? Amazing. People kept coming up to my husband and me telling us that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding--some even said it was some of the best food they ever had. (I for one still dream about the lentils and broccoli rabe.)

If you're looking for a beautiful rooftop space in NYC with great food and great staff, stop looking: This is your place.

My wife and I had our wedding reception at the hotel, and stayed there either side of the wedding with our daughter and families. Emily White, the hotel Events Manager was enormously helpful throughout the entire process of planning the reception, and her and the hotel's other staff were extraordinarily kind and helpful during our stay. We would wholeheartly recommend Hotel Giraffe, whether simply as a place to stay, or as a venue for a family event. We are so grateful to the whole team for making our stay, and our special day, so memorable. We are very much looking forward to returning in the near future.

We just had our wedding at the Piano Suite and Rooftop Garden at Hotel Giraffe. I am so happy to have found this venue, it is the perfect venue for an intimate wedding of 60 people. The event coordinator, Emily White, was so helpful throughout the whole process, reminding me of things that I would definitely have forgotten to do, as well as offering suggestions and advice on everything from the cake to details for the ceremony. Our caterer was Park Avenue Bistro, they work exclusively for the hotel, and my guests were raving about the food and desserts! The Cake, provided by Cake Alchemy was a wonderful 3 tiered butter cream/vanilla piece of heaven :) we had also requested a DJ, and Hotel Giraffe works with MusicFlex exclusively and they were truly amazing, my guests packed the dance floor for a good 2 hours!
All in all, it was an unforgettable wedding, loved every minute of it!! Thank you Hotel Giraffe!

The catering and hotel staff are highly professional, experienced, flexible, and very warm. All of our guest were well attended to. No glass was left empty for a moment and everyone had frequent access to all the hand served hors d'oeuvres. The caterers hire a lot of extra help to make sure everyone is well attended to. If you love New York and you want a more modern, sophisicated feel to your wedding, this is the place to have it. My friends couldn't stop talking about how great our wedding was. They were so impressed with the food and that has to say something knowing New Yorkers are a hard crowd to please in the gormet food department. My full compliments to Park Avenue Bistro for a terrific job (our caterer). The hotel provided us with a suite next to the penthouse room so that I could get ready and come out in a way that no one would see me to make my grand entrace. It also served as an additional restroom for out guests. Let me also add, the wedding cake was just magnificent and delicious! It you want less stress added to your special day, Hotel Giraffe is the way to go. They will take such great care of you.

The staff at the Hotel Giraffe were fabulous, everyone from Jennifer, the director of sales who basically acts as your very own wedding planner, to the door guys. The roofdeck and Piano Suite facilities are beautiful and sleek and they were really flexible with the decor (removing the big giraffe statue for instance, and letting my mother cover their huge mirror with some custom fabric). The caterer they use was great and on it--bar tenders fabulous. I wouldn't trust their staff with your wedding music, though--or if you do, be sure to include them in the rehearsal so they can be sure they know what you want and when--they didn't hit our cues and the processional and recessional music started too early.
