Hotel Giraffe accommodates business travelers sharing quarters

NEW YORK -- Companies are always looking for ways to keep costs down.

One of the latest trends is to request that corporate travelers share hotel accommodations.

That's just fine with the Hotel Giraffe here. The property welcomes such roommates.

While many hotels are not conducive to such arrangements, the 73-room luxury boutique boasts of more than adequate facilities.

To start with, the hotel's 320-square-foot double rooms with 10-foot ceilings offer two queen-size beds with individual reading lamps as well as two separate eight-foot-long granite desktop surfaces, each with data ports for laptop computer connection and high-speed Internet access.

"Besides the generous dimensions of the double rooms," said Rose Revicki, director of sales and marketing, "all of the rooms feature balconies with nine-foot glass doors that offer north and south vistas of Park Avenue South.

"It's rare in a hotel room to have any kind of outdoor access. That's a real plus when business colleagues are sharing a room."

In addition, all of the Hotel Giraffe's rooms feature three telephones with speaker phone and voice mail.

The hotel provides two alarm clocks, and all guest rooms are equipped with

CD players, VCRs, stereo systems, 29-inch televisions and electric black-out shades.

The hotel is located in the city's growing area on 26th Street and Park Avenue.
