I stayed in Fitzpatrick Grand Central for business in April and May 2012. I travel to NY (midtown) about 4/5 times a year and this is by far the best hotel I have stayed in at this price point in the area.
The rooms are recently renovated, immaculately clean and a decent size for Manhattan. Bathrooms a little on the small side but also very clean, good water pressure in the shower etc. The staff are very helpful - really make an effort above and beyond normal. I also really like the large fresh fruit plate on arrival and, best of all, the large bottles of mineral water (still and sparkling) that are provided each day. Arriving back to the hotel room after a long exhausting day, it is so nice to have water provided, instead of either paying top dollar for tiny bottles from the mini bar or having to schlep out to a store to get some. Only thing I am not mad about is the breakfast area - it is in the Irish bar, dark and a bit grimy, but I always go out for breakfast in New York so it is not a big deal.
Keep up the good work!More
