“A real grand hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

I stayed in this hotel for in July 2012. The check in staff were amazing; very welcoming and courteous. The decor of the hotel was impressive. The hotel waiting area was classic, kind of majestic and well furnished with comfortable seats. My room was big - by NYC standards - with a comfortable bed and it was squeaky clean. A gown was provided, which one could buy for $25. The central location was also a plus; it was easy to get around. A real grand hotel!

We stayed in the Fitzpatrick Grand Central for four nights in May. The rooms were very comfortable and well tended. They were also a reasonable size, by Manhattan standards. Staff were very helpful and friendly and helped make our visit so enjoyable.
However the best thing about the Fitz is it's location. Literally, just around the corner from Grand Central. This allows you to access the subway very easily and means you can travel around the city very quickly. The hotel is also within easy walking distance for all the attractions in midtown.
We did not eat in the hotel as there were so many delis etc in the neighbourhood where you you get a breakfast or lunch.
Overall a really good hotel with super staff, and a wonderful location.

Dear sweatysockScotland,

Thank you for staying at the Fitzpatrick Grand Central and for taking the time to post your review of the hotel on Tripadvisor.

I agree that we are very very centrally located to view all the major attractions and especially so when our proximity to Grand Central station is taken into account.

Once again, thank you for choosing the Fitzpatrick Grand Central and I do hope it won’t be too long before we have the privilege of welcoming you back to the hotel.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and just got back. I miss it already. The second we got there the staff were attentive and got us checked in straight away. Always a hello when leaving and entering the hotel. The room was lovely. We stayed in 409 and it had a lovely view absolutely no complaints at all, especially the maids who always cleaned to a high standard every day.

The only thing that I could say that would have made the stay a little better would be if there was free or even reduced priced wifi.

just returned from new york and thefitzpatrick, what an absolute wonderful place to stay to celebrate my 60th birthday, hotel ,staff so incredibly friendly, nothing was to much trouble. On arrival were upgraded to a suite, we left to have a look around ,get our bearings to return to champagne and choclate covered strawberries, wonderful end to a long day.The hotel is well placed for grand central station ,just around the corner,and ideal for flying up and down manhatten.Garfield was extremely helpful in contacting people on our behalf for trips booked,but then everyone of the staff were A great big thankyou to everyone for making our trip so memorable. if you go to new york please consider this hotel you will not be disappointed.

From the moment we stepped into this hotel we were met with a great Irish welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. From the Concierge, to the front desk staff, to housekeeping, to the staff in the restaurant, all we got was smiles, friendliness and a general sense of what can we do for you to make your stay special. The hotel appears to be quite small, however it is constantly buzzing with people checking in and out and people just dropping in for meetings. The food is excellent . The location is good, busy, but quiet and we felt we were in a very safe area. Breakfast was catered for very easily with various different types of food outlets on your doorstep. Grand Central Station was literally around the corner.

Good clean hotel with friendly welcoming staff. Rooms and hotel very clean and tidy. Great central location and easy walking distance to Times Square and Empire State Building etc. Grand Central only 2 mins walk away for trains and subway. A great breakfast can be found at Pershing Square just through Central station. Hotel food very hit and miss and bar prices different every time for the same drinks!
Feel this is a fantastic hotel if only it could get its food and drink in order. Would thoroughly recommend staying here if you choose to eat elsewhere as the hotel and staff are faultless.

Room Tip: Deluxe room was excellent

Fitzpatrick Grand Central is well worth staying at, the position of the hotel is spot on for Uptown and Downtown New York. The bus passes going Downtown and just across to Madison Avenue to go Uptown, and of course you can use the subway from Grand Central Terminal or use the train to go further afield.
The rooms are lovely and the use of a fridge makes such a difference in the heat, rooms from sixth floor are the best, we were on seventh which was very nice. The rooms are kept clean and the bathroom spotless.

Room Tip: Use sixth floor upwards.
