Location!

Stayed here for 5 nights in June. This hotel could not be situated better, across from Grand Central and a mere 10 minute walk to times square. From the spacious rooms to the ultra helpful staff this hotel ticks all the boxes.

Nice but dated hotel located directly across from Grand Central - good location if that is your intent. Amenities somewhat lacking. Large but dated bathroom.

Great visit to NY on a budget

Other than some cracks in the bathroom floor the room was in perfect shape. For the deal I got to stay here it was amazing. Short walk to Broadway and Central Park, great location.

Nice New Year's Break

Enjoyed our stay (Dec 31st for a week). Reception very helpfull. Room was ok if you are not going to spend too much time there. Wardrobe space a bit limited and the safe (on the floor) in the wardrobe at an impossible angle to use. Yery shallow bath makes it good for a shower, but not so good for a bath. Heating worked well, but noisy. Irish Bar very cosy and the Food was excelent. Patio area looked impressive, though we could not take Advantage due to the severe cold weather (but it does have very good Overhead heaters). Good Location, right opposite Grand Central Station.

Just Perfect

This was our 3rd stay at the Fitzpatrick Grand Central, and we were not disappointed in the least. The hotel staff was very attentive, the room was spacious, sleep came easily as the hotel is quiet with a very comfortable bed, and being less than a block from Grand Central Terminal was extremely convenient for getting around the city. I can recommend this hotel without reservation, and in fact, look forward to a return stay!

Great location but old fashioned and no free wifi.

Best thing about this hotel is the location, right beside Grand Central Station. We found it very old fashioned. Only hotel we have ever stayed in that took a $50 charge off your credit card at check in and told you after they had done it!! Only hotel (out of 5) on this trip, that didn't give free wifi. Word of warning re WIFI - when you search, an option of Guest wifi comes up but by following the steps you are immediately charged $14.95 for 24 hrs wifi per device - seems ridiculous in this day and age. Think it's why they take that charge so they can deduct this fee from it. Our heating unit was broken, no instructions given re use of electrical sockets (wall switch needed to be pressed). These were sorted quickly but felt information given at check in was poor. Clean comfortable bed, staff were alright. Main reason we stayed was the excellent price we got on internet with and the hotel location. We were glad our stay was only for the one night. Lack of free WIFI very disappointing and credit card charge at check in completely unnecessary - costing us money as the credit card company charged both transaction fees and currency exchange fees twice - once for debit and once for the amount being credited back! Would we stay here again? No!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Brilliant place for breakfast is Ashley's - a short walk from the hotel on the corner of Lexington and East 48th street. Everything from a huge bagel menu to fresh croissants, fresh fruit and porridge etc etc Good value too.

Lovely hotel, fantastic location, incredibly helpful and friendly staff

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a sensibly priced hotel in a good location. It attracts many visitors from GB and Ireland and offers first time visitors a chance to settle in easily and ask all manner of questions that most American guests would not need to ask. The staff are extremely welcoming.

Walk and buy a subway pass. Buy a decent, up to date guidebook or use TimeOut USA or Zagat online. Buy tickets for plays from the ticket cabin on Times Square.
