The Hotel Giraffe it’s been the second stage of my last trip to NYC and it’s the “Library Hotel Collection” hotel I knew less, for several reason.
First thing, 4 years ago I didn’t sleep there (I stayed at Casablanca I think) and then almost the whole staff was changed, so I didn’t feel myself at home as in the Casablanca…
..but it took me very few time to change my feelings! Staff is very cool and they gave me a huge help during the shooting.
This hotel is a very good place to spent time during a journey in Manhattan beacause it’s really close to Madison Square Park (which is one of my favorite places in New York City) and to Union Square which is a place where a lot of street artists meet together everyday.
It’s located few subway stops far from the East Village, which has been the meeting point for the pop and underground artists during the eighties and where I could find and see the building of the cover of Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti record!
The Hotel Giraffe is actually ranked n.6 overall on Tripadvisor list for the best hotels in New York City and it’s been awarded by Tripadvisor n.22 on the Top 25 Hotels – United States!
