“First visit to NY. Great location. Good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Stayed mid December. Great location just round the corner from Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building (don't forget to pop in the foyer). Used the efficient Newark express coach transfer from Newark airport which conveniently drops off only one block south of this hotel. Only 5 minute walk to hotel which felt safe even arriving very late at night. Only used subway three times during our stay. Once to lower manhattan to visit Statue of Liberty, walk the financial district and visit 9/11 memorial. Second time to Brooklyn to walk bridge back to Manhattan and thirdly to Times Square in the evening (would probably have walked during the day). With GCS just across the road all these journeys were simple and easy to access. Everywhere else , including all the main attractions, Rockafeller, Empire State, Central Park, 5th Avenue, and shops Bloomingdales and Macys, are all within easy walking distance. For our first visit, the location was just perfect!

Hotel Staff were very friendly. No problems so no need to ask for extra help but felt sure they would be happy to help if needed. Rooms very clean and good size. Beds comfy. Had room facing central space so no view. But in fact we spent so little time in room it did not matter. Coffee machine in room for morning wake me up came in handy and ironing board and iron could come in useful for some! Only negative would be the shower which was rather weak.

If we visit New York again (which we really really want to) we will definitely stay here.

Stay here regularly for business and pleasure. Great staff lovely rooms (bit on small side by american standards) but sufficient.
Bar and restaurant service is excellent serving good Irish food and the Guiness (whilst not Dublin standards is a welcome pint of the black stuff)
Wuld recommend this hotel as location is super, close to grand central to get up and down manhattan and f your not adventurous enough you can walk to any name store within 20 minutes.
Highly recommended.

Stayed at the Fitzpatrick from 21st dec to 28th, after arriving much later than expected at the hotel due to a delay from Dublin & then hubbys case missing on arrival at JFK, Check in was fast & we found the room (514) to be clean & a good size, it served us well for the week we spent there, bed was comfy & we heard no noise & housekeeping went in everyday with fresh towels. The hotel all round was comfortable & welcoming as were all the staff from reception, maids, to a jolly little maintenance man i met a few times in the lift. We spent some time at the Wheeltapper pub & again staff were friendly & welcoming, we ate there Xmas day & had the Xmas lunch which was very nice, we even had a visit from Santa who passed out chocolates to have with your guinness!! The pub was really busy Xmas day but all staff remained attentive & pleasant, well done guys!!

The location of Fitzpatrick we found to be perfect for us, we walked everywhere, we only used the subway one day, it was hard going but perfect way to see as much as possible, would have no qualms about staying here again.

Again thank you to all at Fitzpatrick & Wheeltapper who helped make our 1st visit to NYC a memorable one.

I really liked my stay there at the hotel. It definitely is a great value for money in Manhattan area. Also, the staff was very helpful. I had issues with my internet and they helped me out to use internet even at midnight

We stayed at the Fitzpatrick over Christmas 2013. Overall the hotel was lovely and the Wheeltapper Pub was a welcome haven after a day of pounding the NYC streets.

I would definitely recommend the hotel and I'd be very happy to book again. If I had one little complaint it would be that the housekeeping was a little disappointing. We regularly had to ask for water, tea and coffee and on most days all that was done in the room was bed made and towels changed. We were disappointed a few times to find rubbish left and coffee cups left from the morning. Other than that it was great.

Could not speak highly enough of this hotel.Since we were coming from Ireland we were made feel at home from the minute we walked in the door..Stayed for a week in mid november 2013 and really did not want to leave.The staff were exceptional,extremely polite and helpful.Our room was on the 9th floor and was comfortable and cosy just perfect.Grand Central Station was only 1-2 minute walk from hotel,Times Square 10-15 minute walk...The hotel is pretty central to most attractions which was great..I have to say we loved our stay at the Fitzpatrick Grand Central and really did not want to leave..loved every moment of our stay and would definitely recommend anybody to stay there..Hope to see everybody at the hotel again in the future..Without a doubt..we will be back!! :-)
