Enjoyed our stay here last weekend. Midtown location was quite good and happy to find a $12 for 12 hours parking one block over on 43rd Street -rate jumps, however, to $60 if one minute over. Bar and outdoor patio were hopping busy on a cold winter's night. Quite comfortable on outdoor patio with heaters. Next morning breakfast in same pub - was very good and the historic rail memorabilia quite interesting. Staff was welcoming on all levels and seemed to go out of their way/friendliness - check in/check out, maid service, pub wait staff. Rooms comfortable, quiet, clean, sizeable. Not a trendy hotel but excellent for service and hospitality, location, cleanliness, value. We will stay again.

This hotel is nothing short of perfect. The location near Grand Central is awesome. Fitzpatrick is a beautifully maintained hotel with very nice, clean rooms and general seating areas. The attached Wheeltapper Bar & Restaurant is great for meals and drinks all day both inside and out in their courtyard. The staff in both the hotel and bar/restaurant were fantastic. We were greeted upon every encounter. Coffee shop is next door as well. Convenient to restaurants, bars and markets. Thank you Fitzpatrick for making our celebration unforgettable. It's not IF we will be back, it is WHEN!

Room Tip: If the street noises of NY bother you, there are inside rooms above the courtyard, but less air flow...

We stayed here for one night before my husband's business trip started. The front desk was helpful and check-in was really fast. Our first room was on the 2nd floor but we moved to the 9th floor after our heater broke twice. The manager was really helpful and tried to fix the heater but eventually moved us. Both rooms were very small and our second room's heater turned off in the middle of the night. The bathroom was very small as well. The hotel was very close to Grand Central and had a lot of food choices close by. It was a nice hotel but next time we will stay somewhere else.

Great location, comfortable beds and pillows, rooms small but adequate! Pub was always quiet lacked atmosphere, staff were not over friendly. Reception staff especially Kelly are wonderful, welcoming, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Garfield and Mike (concierge ) both very helpful. Had a great 1st time visit to New York.

We originally booked for the Millenium Broadway hotel in New York,but after reading reviews on trip advisor we asked the travel agent to find us another hotel as we had concerns on what had been written about the cleanliness. They found The Fitzpatrick Grand Central for us. We arrived early due to the flight getting in earlier than expected, but we were met with a very warm welcome and issued our keys for the 2 rooms immediately. As my son and daughter were with us and sharing a room,they upgraded the double room to a twin, free of charge. The hotel was spotless , the beds so comfy and the staff were so ameniable and polite.To have a coffee machine and bottled water in the room was a godsend. I just cannot fault this hotel, and would certainly recommend it. It is right next to the Grand Central Terminal which was great for touring, but also only a 10 min stroll to Times Square
Out of devilment we went and found the Millenium Broadway, and just looking through the window and seeing the stained carpets and tired furniture in the lounge reassured me that we had made the right decision

Room Tip: Our room didnt have a view at all as it faced onto another building. Im sure if we had asked they w...
