“Loved the beds!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2009

After traveling from the West Coast to the East Coast, we were tired and wanted a nice comfortable, quiet place to stay. We found this all and more at the Fitzpattrick Grand Central! The beds and pillows are amazing, the rooms quiet, and the room cozy. The hotels' location is ideal as it is right across from Grand Central Station, within walking distance of Times Square and Theater District. Having Grand Central so clase was nice especially when we relied on it so much to get around with and without our luggage. The Pub next door was awesome. Loved the Margaretia Pizza (actually the best one we had in NY...even compared to a restaurant in Little Italy!) Thank you for a wonderful visit.

I stayed at the Fitzpatrick for 2 nights. When I first arrived I was surprised by how small it was. You could easily walk/drive right past it! There was no one outside, so I had to drag my bags in myself. But once I got inside, I thought it was very cute. My room was small (it is NYC) but VERY cute and VERY clean..nice tv, bathroom was small, but fine for 1-2 people. The room service was ok.

The bed was INCREDIBLE. I have never had a bed that nice in a hotel. It was like sleeping on a cloud..I normally hate hotel beds. I was VERY impressed by this and was able to get a great nights sleep before a big meeting the next morning.

This hotel is right off 42nd and Lexington, so there are a lot of restaurants and shops (& Grand Central) nearby..it's also 6 blocks or so from Bryant Park and Times Square.

The Pub downstairs was cute..the "outside" patio wasn't too crowded..overall-I wld def. stay there again..

Just arrived back and cannot fault this hotel. Ticked all our boxes- really central whilst not being right in the centre of Times Square (nice for a visit but would have hated staying there!) Just accross from Grand Central- (great for the subway, lovely food court downstairs!) Was so easy to walk everywhere. Hotel itself was great- especially Thomas the receptionist on duty the night we arrived who was very patient and nice to deal with (he changed our room twice for us without any problems-long story :) The bedrooms were lovely, the bed soft and comfortable after a days walking. The bathroom was v good, and the room had good tv and tea/coffee making facilities. We got a great deal on travelzoo which included a $50 voucher for breakfast (which was a bit on the expensive side, but we didnt mind as there were so many great places in New York to get breakfast. Overall would recommend highly as a good quality 3 star hotel with a bit of character

This hotel was very reasonable for it's location. We were able to walk to Central Park and Times Square. Our room was a fairly decent size for NYC and we even had a window looking out over the outdoor patio (another rarity in NYC).

For our first time in NYC got a great deal for this hotel on travelzoo so didn't hesitate to book.
Saved 70$ per night compared to the rates the hotel website was offering.

Hotel is ideally located off lexington so near enough to the action but not slap bang in the middle of things. Great location close to Grand central station and lexington

Our room was on the 9th floor and VERY quiet which was great. Room was very big spacious and bed was so comfortable!
Room was spotless so were all common areas.

Bathroom had the usual toiletries and was decked out in marble style. There was some paint peeling from inside the bath so could have done with a lick of paint but otherwise was fine, nice power from the shower too.


Concierge has to get a special mention nothing was too much trouble for him,I am sure this is part of his job but he was so pleasant at every passing, and helped us out in every single way possible. It added to our stay.


Front desk staff were courteous and professional. Our deal included a 50$ tab for the bar so we used it for food & beverages one day. Bar food has a great selection was very tasty and there is a nice atmosphere with a mixture of nearby office workers and tourists. Only downside to this hotel was the prices of beer in the Wheeltapper Pub were outrageous, even dearer than city centre Dublin and that takes some beating.

Our rate did not include breakfast so could not comment on that, but plenty of great places to choose from for breakfast nearby.

Overall a great stay but pricey bar will be avoided at all costs if I return!!
