“Wish we could have stayed longer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We had an overnight stay in NYC between two long flights, so we took a chance on the Fitzpatrick Hotel after reading other helpful reviews. And, we are so glad that we booked our stay here! From the moment we arrived, the staff was very helpful, check in was smooth, and we were happy to receive a number of late dinner recommendations. Our room was perfect for an overnight - comfy bed, pillows, clean and tidy. The next morning, while we checked out early, we were able to store our backs during the day while we enjoyed a whirlwind tour of NYC.

This is a great location - close to 5th Ave for shopping, Central Park, Radio City Music Hall, etc.

Next time we return to NYC we will definitely consider staying here again!

You can't do better than the price/value equation of this smaller but super-friendly hotel. They took excellent care of an elderly relative of ours visiting from Ireland, making her toast mid-afternoon so she could enjoy some tea and toast before retiring for the day after a very tiring flight. The tea serving was a entire teapot of many cups! My kids loved the Tayto crisps at the bar which they remembered from visits to Ireland and my husband was thrilled -o enjoy a delicious Irish breakfast, perfectly cooked. The rooms are a good size and well appointed with updated and very functional showers, as well as nice touches such as an armchair for sitting and reading, a pants press, an umbrella in the closet, a mini fridge and coffee/tea and a docking station to recharge your phone. The staff is very friendly yet professional and actually helpful.

Room selection is key here. Each floor has a budget room (alas, mine) that's about 120sf (excluding small bath and tiny closet). Rooms are well appointed (hardwoods by hickory chair). Bathrooms are tiny, but have marble and nice fixtures. The two biggest problems are: (1) the HVAC system is terribly inadequate and it was impossible to manage the temperature in the room and (2) the mattress was simply awful. Frankly, I've never slept on a mattress that bad. I have no idea if this is a problem throught the hotel, or if it was just bad luck.
Staff is polite and friendly. Location is ideal if you're shopping on Madison avenue, or if you do't mind walking about 3 blocks to the nearest subway stop.

Room Tip: Price and room size are correlated here. Budget priced rooms are small by Hobbit standards. Thre a...

This was an excellent choice for location - it's within comfortable walking distance of some of the big attractions. The welcome and the genuine warmth of the staff was wonderful and many of the other guests had stayed before. The room was very comfortable, and well prepared, and was immediately changed at check in to two beds for us as I was visiting with my young son. The bar was comfortable, friendly and again with excellent staff. There are always staff available to help you, to book a restaurant, to book tickets for an attraction, or just to advise on directions or to give information about the area. We had room service food a couple of times - it was fast, efficient and delicious. There are many places to eat - including in the hotel. The room service menu, the novelty, and the pure joy of being in New York, just proved too much for my son who took the 'initiative' let's say, and ordered! Check in and check out was smooth and again the staff booked our airline seats and checked our transfers for us. We will definitely go back.

Room Tip: There are sometimes great offers to upgrade to a suite.

Excellent hotel, staff very helpful and friendly. Had a suite on the 3rd floor (Room 302) facing Lexington Avenue. Even though it was facing the main road had a great nights sleep. Rooms were an excellent size and well furnished.

Prices in the bar very reasonable.

Would definitely recommend to others.

The Fitzpatrick Manhattan is in a great area, really central and it was a joy to see it after tramping around the Manhattan streets! I would agree with other reviewers that the staff are excellent and it is a really good idea that there is a manager on duty at all times. They were extremely efficient and responded immediately to any requests or queries. The hotel is lovely and the Fitz bar was not intimidating at all for a lone female traveller. I would highly recommend it.
