The Friendly Giant is a popular Canadian children's television program that aired on CBC Television from September 1958 through to March 1985. It featured three main characters: a giant named Friendly (played by Bob Homme), who lived in a huge castle, along with his puppet animal friends Rusty (a rooster who played a harp and lived in a book bag hung by the castle window) and Jerome (a giraffe).
Ok, I haven't actually been to the hotel... but I can tell you now that the area it sits on is a giraffe sanctuary. Hence the giraffes hanging around on premises. They are beautiful, and when I was at the sanctuary a very pretty 15 year old giraffe was pregnant. Baby giraffes coming soon to the giraffe hotel!
