The room we booked through Expedia was small, and had a desk and one desk chair.
We needed an arm chair, and the manager changed us to a larger room despite being fully booked. The room was comfortable, and clean. The bathroom was large and comfortable.
There is a CVS, and small deli next to it. If you are looking to stay at Union Square, it is a very good, convenient hotel.
The annoyances: Only one very slow elevator with broken ventilation system-- not good on the 95F day. We would have gladly taken the stairs, but we were on the 12th floor. The hot (and sometimes cold) water was shut off between 10am and 5pm for two days. Lots of hallway noise and early construction noise. We were promised pastries and coffee in the lobby but there were none to be found (well, sometimes there was cofffee.)
The good stuff: Very nice, bright and clean rooms which were recently remodeled. Great location. Several blocks from Eataly and subway stations.
Hopefully they will get the elevator thing worked out soon.
We stayed at Hotel Giraffe for 4 nights from 15th June. Couldn't fault a single thing. Made to feel welcome the minute you step out of your taxi. Spotless boutique hotel in a great location. Lovely friendly staff, special mention to Gabrielle who served us the free wine and snacks between 5-8pm. Free 24hr tea and coffee, cakes and biscuits too! The breakfasts which were included were great too. So relaxing. Would be our first choice to stay if visiting New York again.

Very conveniently located & very well priced for a NYC hotel, Hotel 17 served a very good purpose: a clean place to sleep and at a very affordable price.
The hall bathrooms were fine. I never had to wait to use them. The sink in the room was helpful.
Other than the window A/C unit not being very effective, all was fine. It's a great place for an " in & out" hotel .... Sleep and then go do your NYC activities.
The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful.
Value driven success.
Great little hotel, LOVED the ambiance and decor. Staff was exceedingly attentive and helpful. Location is fantastic. Breakfast was nice and sitting room a wonderful and relaxing way to start the day. Quick walk to multiple metro stops and Union Station. One or two caveats: The a/c in my room wasn't working while there. I didn't mind as I tend to run cold, but my hubby would have been tortured. Also, there is a loud bar across the street, so plan to use the provided earplugs if you are in a street-facing room.
George Washington marks the midpoint of Union Square, a well-groomed park that offers respite from Manhattan's masses. Known for its weekly Greenmarket, which unites foodies with farmers, the park is surrounded by a vibrant neighborhood of shops and restaurants and is convenient to Greenwich Village and downtown to the south. Just north stands one of New York City's iconic buildings, the Flatiron.
