“Great Experience- Weekend Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

My girlfriend and I needed a relaxing weekend in the City and the Fitzpatrick Grand Central was our Hotel of choice. We received excellent service from start to finish from the entire staff. From the warm greetings from the front desk (Chris, Neisha, Fernando, & Thomas) to the attentiveness of our room from Housekeeping, this was a great start to kick off the fun filled weekend. I will definitely be returning to the Fitzpatrick Grand Central for my next getaway weekend.

Thanks guys!

Just have to say we had an brilliant time in NYC and having a great hotel definitely made the difference. The staff were really friendly, especially Micheal in the concierge,who was there when we arrived he looked after our bags and recommended places to eat/visit. The waiting staff were lovely and looked after us really well especially Rapi. The room was a good size and the bed super comfy. The only negative was trying to get the temperature of the shower to stay, it would either turn too hot or too cold. I'll definitely stay here again :)

Great Hotel beside Grand Central Station - We arrived to a free upgrade because we were newly weds - room size was good and the free champagne great! Bed was super comfortable and most likely a king size too. Nice touch of an umbrella in the wardrobe along with the usual safe\iron board\hangers etc.. Staff were excellent and really friendly/helpful. The bar is were the breakfast is located and it's quite nice but the weekend we were there the staff response times was very very slow - took quite a while to be fed. Just a shortage of staff they should address at peak times especially Paddy's weekend! I liked that there are Irish staff on site too which makes us feel at home.

We stayed at the Fitzpatrick Grand Hotel for 4 nights for my boyfriends birthday weekend over Easter. We absolutely loved it. The staff couldn't do enough for you, they even sent up sparkling wine & chocolate covered fresh strawberries for his birthday night. No matter what your query or question they went above & beyond to help.
Our room was superb, the bed extremely comfy & fluffy. Black out blinds at the windows, adequate wardrobe space with a free safe, iron & board, hairdryer, coffee machine & tv. The bathroom had a fantastic shower & great products that they replaced daily. All very clean.
This hotel has a pub attached to the hotel that offered breakfast from 7am (which was very good!) & closed at 2am with great outdoor space with a large smoking section.
The location is fantastic with Grand Central Station across the road!
If we ever visit New York City again we wouldn't bother looking for another hotel we would definitely return here.

You can't beat this location. Loved the welcoming hot coco upon arrival. Chris Brown was friendly & informative on an early check in. The room was clean and comfortable. We left our bags with the concierge for the day, easy. Would definitely stay here again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights over Easter - it was our first trip to New York/USA.
We had a room on the 9th floor which was facing inwards so it was quiet overnight (no street noise), there was some noise from people in the outdoor area of the pub but this stopped around 11pm so not an issue for us. We did find that when people in neighbouring rooms returned at night they could be quite noisy with talking and shutting/slamming doors (not the hotels fault).
Pros:
Location - awesome location, short walking distance to a lot of the major attractions. Easy to get to/from the airport as very close to Grand Central Station and lots of eating places around.
Concierge - Fernando was fantastic and so helpful! Thanks Fernando! All the staff we encountered were friendly and willing to help
Rooms - clean, tidy and we got free bottled water and small chocolates. Nice toiletries which were replenished daily. Pod coffee machine and a safe in the room

Cons:
Bathroom - minor gripe with the pressure in the shower but we were on the 9th floor, floor tiles could do with replacement
If I am being really picky - no fridge in the room and no free wi-fi in the room (free wi-fi was in the lobby)

We got a nice treat for Easter - 2 creme eggs!
As someone else has said our room was dark but to be honest we were not in the hotel much during the day anyway so this was not an issue; we did find the room was a bit cold but we just turned the air conditioning unit on for about 10 minutes and the room heated up very quickly - easy to adjust temperature.
We did not eat at the Wheeltapper as we felt it was a bit pricey and you can find other places near by to eat and drink - the coffee place next door to the hotel does very good coffee.

Would recommend staying here as it really is such a great location - do ask the concierges about attractions and sights as they are so knowledgeable and give plenty of tips to make the most of your time.

Had a great 4 night Easter break here with my wife. Hotel is in a fantastic location- one minute from grand central station, some great pubs nearby. We walked everywhere in New York and this was a great base. Comfy beds also!! Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff. Would have got 5 stars if wifi was free in room-quite important when you're thousands of miles from home and want to keep in touch with family
