The Fitzpatrick Manhattan Hotel is not nearly as lovely as its brother in Grand Central.  A step down in presentation, professionalism of staff, and location.  The perk is that the rates are most often less expensive than the Fitzpatrick Grand Central Hotel.

I stayed here in July 2010 and it was excellent. My great-aunt lived in this building up until a few years ago (it wasn't always a hotel) and we got to know some of the staff when we would come to visit. The hotel has an excellent location just minutes on foot from BLT Steak, Fifth Avenue, Bloomies, etc. The rooms are nice and spacious, and I like the fact there are old books on the bookshelves both in the rooms and in the hallways. It gave it such an interesting feel.

Recently renovated, I have to say I really like this hotel. It's quaint and the staff is incredibly professional and kind. They really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I received a quick tour of a couple of renovated rooms and the suites are incredibly spacious, while the standard rooms are just that, standard NYC size, but the bathrooms are nice as is the touch of including bathrobes.

The adjacent restaurant/bar, The Fitz, is also recently renovated (don't know what it was called before but I know it changed names) and has enormous portions. I have had a couple of different salads and sandwiches during lunch--all quite good--and can never finish it all!

If this is a four star hotel I'm a leprechaun!  Here, low expectations are best, I'm staying in the presidential suite named for some irrelevant Irish President.
Caveat Emptor, the gym is almost 5 blocks away with a voucher, when it's cold out it may as well be in New Jersey.
Quaint means don't look out the windows, they should have been opaque.  The windows don't shut completely, so be prepared for a draft or run the heat constantly- great except it has that stale odor of burnt dust.
The furniture looks, well like it belongs at grandma's house and equally uncomfortable.
The staff is great but all the foreign accents make one wonder if hotels now qualify for H-1B visas or desk jobs in hotels are now beneath unemployed Americans.  
Breakfast is mediocre with the choices being either too much food or too little, no continental available.  I probably won't eat dinner here.  My take is boutique means substandard service.
And yet, there's more.  Don't turn on the TV, it's either off-air local crap or $17 PPV movies.  Internet, forget about it, I get a great signal to the AT&T wifi hotspot in the hotel, only apparently it doesn't work if you actually use AT&T, I wasted two hours on the line with AT&T only to be told it was the hotel's problem.  The hotel called AT&T only to be told they need my ip and MAC address but, won't talk to me directly.  Bottom line, if you want to stay in the presidential suite bring a book because that's all the entertainment you're getting.

I had the travel agency change me out of some big hotel in Time Square in order to go "boutique."  Bad move on my part.  There are no good places to walk or dine around them, and they are the LEAST GREEN hotel I have stayed in NYC... without even a little card to say leave the towels on the rack when clean... when I asked the front desk to make sure that the cleaning staff didn't change my sheets, they looked at me like I had 3 heads (and then they changed them anyway, yet didn't leave any new soaps - not in an effort to be green, but an effort to be cheap).  When I called down to get some soap, I got attitude. And here's a kicker - the internet was WONKY.

Stayed here for 7 days, 6 nights and really enjoyed my stay.
Best part about The Fitzpatrick....LOCATION. It's right in Midtown, super close to Central Park, Rockefeller Center, and perfectly inbetween uptown and midtown. Was really easy to get around from this location, it was close enough to everything.
I had never been to New York before but the staff at the Fitz made it really easy, helping out with directions, food spots, it was all great. And when I would ask for a recommendation for dinner, breakfeast, shopping, etc, I wouldn't have to wait while they wrote it down, they brought it up to my room or wherever. The staff was very pleasant, some more than others, but overall pretty good.
The bellman were amazing, extremely helpful, and even helped us get our City Passes which was great but a little odd as it seemed like something a front desk person should do.
But overall I definitely recommend this place, was expensive but not too much compared to other places from what I understand. The rooms are a little old fashioned but I liked it.
Definitely recommend.

Nondescript hotels with easy check in are a cheaters dream. The Fitz isn't glamorous or fashionable, but it's a great place to meet for an after work quickie.

Start in the bar with one of the best martinis in town (Belvedere - up with a twist, please). Then move up to the room.

Stylistically lacking but overall comfortable. The bed can take a lot of banging. I am particularly fond of the big padded head board :-D I have spent countless evenings of pleasure here and the hotel holds a fond place in my heart.

Between orgasms you can order room service. The only thing I can recommend is the hamburger but it's decent and will help you refuel for round two.

Although we make our yearly hiatus to New York City and stay at other Hotels, this was our first stay at the Fitzpatrick.  We were very impressed.  We traveled with 8 people and stayed at the Hotel for 3 nights.  The staff was very friendly and helpful.  We stayed in 2 different rooms.  One of the rooms had BEDBUGS, which doesn't tend well for a review, however, the manager was very helpful and apologetic and compensated us very well for the inconvenience.  The Hotel was charming and we would stay again.

this is a decent boutique hotel in ny.  the room and closet are a good size, but the bathroom could use a few more sq feet.  the bed is comfy and the ac is powerful.  the bathroom has definitely been renovated and it's pretty clean.  i also liked the toiletries (including a sewing kit and shower cap) that were provided.  the shower is an overhead one, which means the shower head points down from the ceiling.  although it sounds great in theory, it was actually quit annoying to stand in the shower without having your head in the stream the whole time.  you had to angle your head from front to back to side to side.  my biggest complaint is that the water was not hot!  it would only get a little hotter than lukewarm.  since we had the ac cranking (see above), these warm showers were not enjoyable.  

another complaint is that the doors are not sound proof at all.  we could hear people in the hallway and our neighbor's opening and closing their doors.

the bar downstairs is really nice and the service was good too.  they did give me a wine glass that clearly had lipstick stained on it.  i'll have to find out what brand of lipstick that is as it lasted through the dish washing process!  we informed the waiter and he replaced it right away.

the location is pretty convenient too.  lots of shopping (bloomies only 2 blocks away), restaurants and subways close by.  but for almost $500/nt, it's a tad overpriced.

I stayed at the Fitzepatrick Hotel in Manhatten for only 1 night but my experience was great!

Its a relatively small hotel in a nice location on the Upper East Side, just steps away from lots of shops and only a few blocks (5-10 min walk) from Central Park.

All the staff members (check-in, bell service, room service, housing keeping) I interacted with were really nice & helpful!!
I had two extremely heavy bags with me and the bell service was amazing in accommodating them and helping me move them to/from the taxi and to/from my room.

The hotel is relatively small, but the rooms are big! The decor, both in the lobby and in the room, was nice. Room service (which was offered 24 hrs) was delicious, and they had a decent selection.

I stayed here for New Year's from the 28th thru the 1st. The location is perfect. It is within walking distance from 5th avenue, central park, shopping, Rockefeller center, etc. The staff is excellent. Very attentive, nice, and remember who you are when you walk thru the lobby, which always makes you feel at home. The room is rather small, but I guess standard for NYC hotels. The bathroom is upgraded, although our shower glass wall/door was a bit loose and kept making some noise. The room is quaint although i would say needs a bit of upgrading as far as the carpet, tv and furniture. The only issue we had was that the first day i took off the comforter and the sheets had a small hole in them. I called downstairs and house keeping came right away to change them and it seemed they put in brand new sheets so that was good.
If you don't expect this to be a outstanding 4 star hotel then you will be pleased with your stay.
Given the high prices during the new years holidays this was the most economical we found without giving up quality. I would recommend this hotel to someone if the pricing was not $400 a night, but expected during this time.

What an odd lobby layout with cozy rooms.

As you walk in, you see 2 tables to the side and one towards the back near the elevators.  All 3 look like tables suited for guests who wish to use the internet.  It's bizarre that the staff work off of an open desk with a computer and sitting down.  Really?  Sitting down?  Times have changed I guess...

They have a restaurant on the first floor towards the right side.  To the left are the elevators that take you up to the rooms, which I think there are only 4-5 to a floor.  Tiny hallways and narrow rooms.  

The room I was in had 2 full size/queen size beds (couldn't tell which).  I liked the padded leather headboards glued to the wall and the middle table containing a stereo alarm clock that can fit 2 ipods/iphones.  The room had 2 windows that can open 4 inches and a mini window in the bathroom that can open all the way up, albeit a foot at most.  There was a work table and chair facing the window.  We had a walk-in closet containing a mini-fridge, safe, ironing board & iron, and of course hangers.  A coffee maker was available too.

Here are some disappointments:  the lever to flush the toilet was stuck in between the toilet tank and sink counter (have to squeeze your hand and fingers to push down).  Hot water took about 5 minutes to come on.  TV was a bit small at 26".  I personally do not like tall beds that make me feel I'm going to fall off when I get off the bed.  And my biggest gripe:  charging $15 for wifi internet for 24 hours of usage?  And only available on one laptop?  Are you fk'n kiddding me?

The room was clean, the beds had nice clean sheets, and a nice comforter.

My suggestions they should improve on:  add a microwave to each room, get rid of the box spring and get a bed frame with only the mattress on it so they bed height is much shorter, and for crying out loud, if you are going to charge that much for internet use, at least have the decency and provide the service for use on all computers in that room and add an ethernet cable to the room.

I don't know why others don't give this hotel higher ratings. Yes it's in an older building, but that's part of its charm. Our room was totally renovated and the bath, though small, had all the latest amenities. The staff was friendly and helpful, and best of all the hotel hallways were quiet! There were only 6 rooms on our floor so there weren't any late night partiers  traipsing by the door all night long. We would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for St. Pa tricks Day weekend. As you do. The weekend was a blast but that's another story. Fitzers isn't cheap by any standard but it was fantastic. Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant.  Couldn't have asked for better. There were three of us so we had a junior suite which was spacious - certainly by New York standards - and very comfortable. Daughter basically had her own room and, more importantly, large flat screen TV. Bar was congenial and a bit of home from home. Only a few blocks from Bloomingdales, 10 minutes walk to 5th avenue and the Park and a taxi ride downtown, the location is excellent in my view. We're already booked in for a week in September.

Stayed here during fashion week....the hotel is in the perfect location. Close shopping, Times Square, restaurants and other NYC attractions.  Rather pricey but that's NYC for you!  I'd definitely stay here again.

The staff was helpful, they would grab a cab for us each time we were headed out,  they also provided umbrellas on the day it was raining, which was nice.

The owner comes by the hotel often as his car was parked out front with his personalized plates!

I recently needed a hotel room for a business trip and only had 2 hours notice to find a hotel. I arrived near midnight on Sunday evening. The hotel had a little trouble finding my reservation, since I had booked just 10 hours prior to my arrival. While I needed a room for 4 nights, the hotel only had availability the first two nights of my stay, I decided to take my chances that a room would come available for the last 2 nights. The first evening my room rate was insanely low (well under $200 per night) and the 2nd night was resonable at $300 per night. The first two nights the hotel manager upgraded me to a two room suite . . . very nice room. I knew nights 3 and 4 would be difficult if not impossible . . . Obama was in town and staying near by. Amazingly, the hotel was able to accommodate me, unfortunately I lost the two room suite, but I totally understood. What was a little difficult to swallow was the new nightly rate of $500 for a small room with an even smaller bathroom. However, I was only in the hotel about 4-5 hours per night it was fine, and the super friendly and accommodating staff made the cost tolerable. You can't beat the location. All of my meetings were about a block away, which was really convenient. It's possible I'll be working in NYC often over the next 4 or 5 months, this will be my first hotel choice and with a little more lead time I might be able to score a nightly rate in the $300 - $350 range. Again, great friendly service

For a weeknight, we got a great rate!

We came into the city for a wine dinner, just around the corner from this hotel.  Valet was NOT cheap ($60 a night) but then again, this is NYC.  Attentive and friendly staff, and a great little bar off the lobby that we came back to after dinner.

Our room was BIG for NYC standards...largest room I've probably seen.  King bed and tiny bathroom, but then a whole sitting room with a full size couch and a small wet bar off of that, plenty of room for our little party to spend some time cocktailing before dinner!  

I would definitely stay here again, I love boutique hotels and this one really was fantastic.

Stayed here while I was in New York for an interview. Super nice hotel with the decor and stuff, and breakfast was included which is a nice tough. The "dark" curtains in the room didn't close fully, which is a bummer because I like it super dark when I sleep. The room I stayed in had a king bed. Was fine for me, but I think if two people stayed it might feel a little cramped.

This is a neat place. It is actually a hotel based in Dublin that opened here apparently. We went there late one night just to get some Irish Tea and Irish cookies. It was a bit pricey but all very good. I loved the atmosphere and the staff was very friendly.  Have never been to the actual hotel but the restaurant bar area is worth seeing. Good for hanging out with some friends and getting some tea.

I am a business traveler and loved three no four things about this hotel. In room safe, in room trouser presser, roomy comfortable bed AND professional, knowledgable (sic) service. Use of robe and umbrella. Quiet hotel for NYC, close enough to shopping etc but not in the heart of the madness that is Times Square. Plently of places to eat, shop (Bloomingdale's anyone) or people watch.  Have stayed at both the Grand Central and Manhattan and they have been consistently excellent. Not looking for anywhere else to stay!

Hotel
I Stayed in this Hotel about 3 years ago over new years & have eaten in the restaurant many times. Its a great hotel for the price.

WHATS GREAT:
LOCATION- 2 blocks from Bloomies for shopping, central park is walking distance and trains for getting everywhere else are 2 blocks also.
ROOMS- Updated  yet old- world elegance, you will forget there are busy streets below.
RESTAURANT- I find many New York hotel restaurants/ lobbys lack ambiance ( unless they are uber expensive), but the Fitzpatrick restaurant is more like an Elegant but casual  Irish lounge bar- Its the perfect place to have:
*An Irish Breakfast (served all day!) before hitting the shops
* Being Irish,I love that they have HOT Irish Tea & Biscuits!
* A glass of Champers to take a break from sightseeing/ shopping

Whats So-So
Its not a place I would go for dinner,  the food, other than the homey Irish-ness, isn't up to the competition that New York's restaurants offers

What can I say, that hasn't already been said about this unique, amazing hotel is near or a short subway ride to many things that make manhattan unique. My wife and I were staying for our anniversary, and when we mentioned it in passing, they upgraded our room to a suite!! It was an amazingly spacious two rooms with a mini kitchen and fabulous view! They also sent up champaign with chocolate covered strawberry's that we were too full to eat after our trip to nyy steak. This is a first class hotel, that we will stay at whenever we are in the city. Make your first choice, the best choice, stay at the fitz!

We stayed 3 nights in a 1 bedroom with pull out couch. I only saw the inside of a regular room very briefly, so my review really only covers the 1 bedroom.

We are a family of 4 with two young daughters so I booked directly with the hotel and requested a high floor to avoid noise, according to some other reviews I had read that could be an issue. The hotel said all the 1 bedrooms are in the back of the hotel so noise won't be an issue, but they will request a high floor. We were placed on the 2nd floor, just above the lobby, so booking direct and making the request didn't get us anywhere. We could have saved 10% using an online booking service and gotten the same thing. That said, noise was definitely not an issue. On the downside, there was no view and very little natural light.

The room itself was very spacious, the main bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was huge and clean, we felt quite comfortable. The maid service came after we checked in late to see if we needed anything, help us set up the sofa bed, etc. They brought free bottled water and fresh towels every morning and night if we needed it. Really great service.

On the downside, the sofa bed was really only good for small children, I don't think an adult would sleep comfortably on it for more than one night. The furniture, carpet and furnishings were pretty dated, kind of like an old European hotel feel, it was all comfortable and functional though. Biggest letdown for me was the kitchenette. There was only a mini fridge and a coffee maker, I was hoping for at least a hot plate and/or a microwave or toaster oven. Overall no big deal, there are tons of breakfast and lunch cafes on every block around there. Most important thing was being able to easily keep drinks and some fruit cold for the kids, and that worked out fine.

Yes, they charge $15 a night for wifi, which is nuts, but our phones have data plans and they worked fine so we didn't use the wifi. I would go back to this hotel without hesitation.

Chose to stay for a night based on proximity to a restaurant with dinner reservations. Staff was friendly, and upon arrival we were upgraded for free from a king room to a suite. Hotel was clean, and reasonably priced based on the area.

One elevator was under maintenance and being worked on throughout the duration of the stay, but they made sure not to get in anyone's way and ensured the other elevator remained working.

My family and I stayed here last week and it was wonderful. The suite rooms are very comfortable and large for NYC! The staff were all warm and welcoming with good recommendations for dining out. We had breakfast at the hotel and the food was good.
Excellent location, walking to Central Park, Museums, Rockefeller Center, major shopping nearby.  Will definitely stay here again when visiting NYC.
