U.S. News Review

Since its full renovation in 2011, the Fitzpatrick Grand Central (not to be confused with its sister property The Fitzpatrick Manhattan Hotel) has won increased favor from guests looking for convenient, comfortable lodging in a location ideal for navigating New York City's neighborhoods. At the corner of East 44th Street and Lexington Avenue, directly across from Grand Central Terminal, this Fitzpatrick hotel is within walking (or riding) distance of just about anywhere you'd need to go in central Manhattan. While recent guests rave about the hotel staff — some even say that the Fitzpatrick's is the kindest staff they've ever encountered — several visitors do mention that many of the 155 rooms and suites can be fairly small in size and tend to feel stuffy. But pillow-top mattresses, terrycloth bathrobes and flat-screen TVs help to make the space more comfortable. And if you need to stretch your legs, head to The Wheeltapper Pub, which serves traditional Irish fare both inside and on its outdoor heated patio.
