Stayed as a couple 18th-21st. Service at the Fitzwilliam was polite, friendly and attentive, for example the receptionist asked upon checking in whether we required any directions or bookings, and the concierge provided us with a map and comprehensive walking directions. On our last day the receptionist kindly ensured that a taxi was booked ready to go the airport, having spent the day at the Titanic experience, whilst the concierge located luggage scales for us.
We didn't book DBB/BB so can't comment on the breakfast, but we ate in the restaurant one of the nights. The food price was fairly reasonable and the food itself was lovely. When we arrived at 7pm (weeknight), there was only one other table dining! I wouldn't say this was a bad thing, but we had been told to make sure we booked a table if we wanted to dine there as 'the restaurant gets busy'. Plenty of places to eat nearby if you don't wish to dine at the Fitz, and also a Subway and Tesco across the road if you want something on the go.
Toiletries provided by the White Company were really lovely. Thankfully the bathroom has standard lighting as well as 'mood' lighting! Was also even able to listen to the stereo/cd player (located in the bedroom itself) whilst in the bath (door open of course!). The bed was king size and incredibly comfortable.
The hotel does have a fitness suite and although it is small by any standards, but it has all you could need for while you're away (crosstrainer, bike, treadmill, freeweights, exercise ball, towels, water dispenser, air conditioning).
The hotel itself is in a convenient location for: city centre/city hall, War Memorial gallery, city sightseeing tour, crown liquor saloon (National Trust), Grand Opera House, and if you go the McCoombe's coach tour to Giant's Causeway (which I highly recommend! via Carrickfergus Castle, Bushmills Distillery, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge), there is a pick up point a couple of buildings down the road, by the Europa.
We stayed on 2nd floor and our room was an executive with rear view, which we were fine with. I doubt you're at much of a disadvantage if you don't spend the extra to get a corner room with a view (superior/deluxe). Would certainly return.
