“Fantastic!”
Reviewed October 5, 2008

The Fitzpatrick Grand Central was just great. The location is excellent being only a very short walk from Grand Central. Of course, that means Times Square is only a few steps away too as is the rest of the city. Check in was a breeze, the staff was great and the rooms were clean. Not being on a busy street, the hotel was quiet also. There is a wonderful restaurant/bar in the lobby too. The bar was very busy with young professionals the Friday night we checked in, but that did not really bother us.
Check out was easy too, the bellhop even ran over to Lexington Ave. to grab a cab to the airport for us. Would love to stay here again anytime.

Im just back from an excellent stay at the fitzpatricks grand central - after trying to decide whether to choose grand central or manhattan i am glad i chose grand central .On arrival we were met by the very friendly porter who assisted us with our bags out of the taxi and brought them into the hotel for us.Check in was very smooth and after being given our keys we were told to go ahead to our rooms and our bags would be brought up. They arrived 5mins later . The staff were very helpful and the concierge desk at the door was excellent for information on the best places to eat and directions etc.
The beds are the most comfortable ive ever had in a hotel and rooms were of excellent size with 2 x double beds and plenty of wardrobe space and free safety deposit box. They also provided a proper hairdryer ( not one of the usual ones that take a long time to dry hair!) and alarm clock along with toiletries and plenty of towels.
Location was excellent , walking distance from everything ( broadway 20mins) and some lovely restaurants around the area ( especially outback steakhouse on 55th/56th street and 3rd avenue) and plenty of shops etc around the area . Grand central station is just around the corner so excellent for getting taxis from . All in all i cant recommend new york enough and wouldnt hesitate to recommend Fitzpatricks Grand Central hotel to stay.
One word of advice - if you plan on visiting the statue of liberty book your tickets online before you go and save time ( i used www.statuecruises.com ) theres a seperate shorter queue for ticket holders and you can reserve access to the base which cant be done when you get there so saves time and you get to go inside the base of the statue.

Myself and my mun stayed in this hotel in September for a week- we booked with a travel agent and would not do this again as they booked a double room instead of a twin! Anyway when we arrived the receptionist Tamara and also Juan solved this for us very quickly and free of charge and it did not seem like a hassle to them and were happy to help (So good to hear after a 8 hour flight!)

The room was very clean and comfortable! This hotel as the most comfortable beds which means alot after a hard day shopping and walking around new york as people know there is ALOT of walking!

My mum used to live in New York and was tracking down old friends - thanks to the help of the doormen/porters - Gregg and Mike who went above and beyond to help get phone numbers and addresses! Gregg also recommended the most fantastic little italian restaurant stella de la mer - well worth a visit. Mike was so helpful and Garfeild is a gentleman! The bar staff and also so friendly (eilish is lovely!)

Its also nice to hear an irish accent at reception - cormac was very helpful and professional.

I have stayed in alot of hotels and also work in the hotel business and I know how important it is for the readers of this and the staff in the hotel to know how good our experience was- the location and staff made our stay in NYC and the hotel is beside everything!!!!! we are already planning our next trip to NYC and would not stay anywere else !!!!!

Thanks to all of you for your kindness and being so helpful - you deserve the praise!

Stayed here in late July 2008. Arrived around 5pm and after reaching our room we realised our travel agent had made a mistake, only requesting a room with one double bed instead of a twin. After we reached our (small) room we realised this and went back to reception and told the Manager who upgraded us to a twin room on the second floor at the front of the hotel free of charge (they said they would normally charge for this and it was lucky there was space). The new room was very impressive, big and spacious with lots of free space to move around. Bathroom was very clean with good free bath products and robes to wear throughout our stay. The double beds were extremely comfortable with lots of pillows. Air conditioning was on constantly which was welcome due to the heatwave at the time. Maids came every day and were very friendly and left the room spotless. Mini fridge was also empty which was handy. The hotel is in a great location and easy to navigate from, with Times Sq a 10 minute walk away and Grand Central is a minute away if you need the Subway. Also lots of restaurants of all kinds immediately surrounding. This hotel is definitely 4* standard and I wouldn't hesitate to return.

We have stayed in a handful of Midtown hotels and the Fitzpatrick Grand Central is our new favorite because of its friendly staff, its cleanliness and the Wheeltapper Pub!

The Irish hospitality is warm and friendly - during check-in, check-out and throughout our stay.

Our hotel room was clean and very comfortable. We loved the beds and the convenience of a mini-refrigerator. The bathroom was also clean, and just like the rest of the room, large compared to NYC standards. We did have a slow drain in the shower, but when we called the front desk, it was handled by the friendly engineer by the time we returned from our day at the US Open.

The Wheeltapper Pub on the first floor of the hotel was a great place to come home to every day. Again, the staff was friendly and the pub had a great ambience. It even has a courtyard, with sections for both smoking and non-smoking. We really enjoyed being able to sit outside and have a drink or a bite to eat.

On top of all of this, the location is unbeatable as it is across the street from the Grand Central Station.

We're already planning our return trip to the Fitzpatrick for next year's Open!
