The customer service at Fitzpatrick Grand Central was exceptional. From our first interaction with reservations by email, to the warm and friendly welcome by Jennifer at reception, to the top class service by bar supervisor Brendan we were looked after so well. My son, who was celebrating his 21st birthday was greeted by champagne, ballons and birthday cake on arrival at his room, which was such a lovely surprise. The room with two double beds was very spacious by NY standards and the bathroom had been recently upgraded. Everyone in the reception area was helpful and chatty whenever we walked through the foyer . The lobby area is in need of an upgrade though and doesn't reflect the hotel's true character in my opinion. We had good food and refresments in the Wheeltapper bar on several occasions and the bar supervisor Brendan did a wonderful job. He was efficent, professional and personable. The patio area was impressive , yet cosy. Thanks in particular to Brendan and Jennifer who helped to make our 5 day Manhattan trip a memory we will never forget. (We recommend anyone staying here to plan a trip to Summit One Vanderbilt- best observation deck experience ever! and so close to the hotel.) Maria and Harry. Read less

This was honestly the worst and probably the most expensive meal we had in Manhattan. We ordered a club sandwich & nachos. Not sure if the bread was stale or very slightly toasted for the club sandwich which was filled with processed meat. The nachos had no chilli meat at all and had no flavour. The chips we clearly frozen & thankfully had a little tub of sauce which helped with the taste. Honestly please don’t waste your money. We stayed in their Hotel over 20 years ago and having had a great time & serve then we assumed we would have been of the same standard. How disappointing and would have had better meal from a fast food place for so much less. Waste of money Read less

My husband and I spent our tenth anniversary in NYC and we were so pleased that we chose the Fitzpatrick Grand Central. We had made the reservation based on convenience of location and past experience. My husband, being from Ireland, also appreciates the warm Irish welcome we always recieve. I must say, in this visit the staff really outdid themselves. We were concerned that all rooms were taken but the reservations team found a room and made it work by upgradeing us. We were touched to find a chilled bottle of sparkling wine and chocolate covered strawberries in honor of our special day. We expressed a bit of concern re eating inside the pub. In no time we had an outdoor table and felt very comfortable. From the concierge services to the desk staff inclduing the cleaning crew we could not have had a more perfect stay. To our friends at the Fitzpatrick heartfelt thanks and hope to see you all again soon. To anyone looking for the perfect place to stay in the city you cannot go wrong with the Fitzpatrick, it has it all. Read less
