The 4-star Fitzpatrick Grand Central Hotel offers upscale comfort coupled with Irish-style hospitality in an unbeatable part of New York City. This exquisite boutique hotel is situated in Midtown Manhattan, close to its eponymous train station and just a few blocks from Central Park. Guests are also within walking distance of Broadway, Times Square and the Empire State Building, as well as high-end shopping on Fifth Avenue. The hotel is beautifully-appointed, with a full renovation completed in June 2011. With an added friendly and personalised service, the property possesses great warmth and distinction. All guests have complimentary access to the New York Sports Club, where they can take advantage of a gym, sauna, steam room and exercise classes. Evoking the heyday of the Irish railroad system and the labourers who inspected train wheels for faults or cracks, the traditional-style Wheeltapper pub-restaurant is full of charm and character. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner both inside and outside, thanks to the hotel’s 200sqm outdoor patio. Covered by a retractable awning and heated during the winter, the patio can be enjoyed year-round. 24-hour in-room dining is also available. Measuring 26sqm, the Deluxe guestrooms are homely with a welcome touch of luxury. Each bed boasts a plush pillow-top mattress and triple-sheeted bedding, while some are also canopied. The hotel provides a valet parking service (chargeable).
