Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Great central location on Lexington Avenue; close to shopping and Central Park
  • Quiet hotel with subtle Irish flavor
  • Spacious rooms with pillow-topped beds, coffeemakers, and flat-screen TVs
  • On-site gastro-pub serves three meals a day at reasonable prices
  • Excellent service, including turndown upon request and 24-hour room service
  • Free passes to nearby gym

Cons

  • Daily fee for in-room Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi is free in lobby and bar)
  • No fitness center (but free passes to a local gym provided)
  • No business center

Bottom Line

This 91-room boutique hotel has a convenient Midtown East location, a casual pub-style restaurant and bar, and handsome rooms with flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, iHomes, and waffle-weave bathrobes. The Fitzpatrick Manhattan doesn't have the on-site business or fitness centers that can be found at many of its competitors, like Fifty NYC or Kimberly Hotel, but it does offer simplicity done right. Personable service and well-equipped rooms make this under-the-radar boutique a solid value.

Irish-owned Midtown East boutique hotel

The lobby of this Irish-owned boutique hotel in Midtown East is quaint and comfortable

One of two New York-based properties operated by the Irish Fitzpatrick Hotel Group, the quaint Fitzpatrick Manhattan boutique provides quiet comfort in the center of bustling Midtown East. The predominately Irish staff provides reliably solid service to their guests, many of whom are Irish also (the hotel has hosted both the Prime Minister and President of Ireland since it opened in 1991). The Fitzpatrick lacks many of the amenities offered by other prominent properties in the neighborhood -- there's no fitness center, for example -- but with its hospitable service, comfy rooms, and a pleasant all-day restaurant and pub, it gets the basics just right.

Location

In the middle of what is primarily a business district, but near museums, Central Park, and lots of shopping

Rooms

Comfy rooms with coffeemakers, trouser presses, and bathrobes

The Deluxe Guest Suite has a basic, cozy look with deep yellow carpeting, satiny brown curtains, and a chocolate-colored padded headboard

Most of the hotel's 91 rooms and suites have a basic, cozy look, thanks to deep yellow carpeting, beige textured walls, and satiny brown curtains. All rooms include Hamilton Beach coffeemakers, iHome radios, pants presses, desks, and 42-inch flat-screen TVs with HBO and on-demand movies. Beds feature chocolate-colored padded headboards, extra-thick mattresses, and pillow-tops (there are either one or two queen beds in the 280-square-foot standard rooms, called Deluxe Rooms).  Deluxe Suites, which range from 625 to 675 square feet, feature either one queen or two double beds. Suites have pantry areas with mini-fridges and separate living rooms with second 50-inch flat-screen TVs, armchairs, and pullout couches, making them a great choice for families. Bathrooms showcase lots of marble and come with Damana bath products, hairdryers, and bathrobes. There are walk-in glass showers in standard rooms, and shower/tub combos in the suites. 

The 775-square-foot Presidential Suites have a sleek Hollywood Regency vibe, with semi-canopied king beds, purple carpeting and curtains, chrome accents, and framed black-and-white photographs against cream-colored or textured beige walls. In-room Wi-Fi costs a daily fee.

Features

A snug Irish restaurant and pub and free passes to a local gym

The Fitz, the next-door restaurant and bar, serves traditional Irish pub fare in a contemporary space

The hotel's next-door restaurant and bar, The Fitz, is a contemporary version of the traditional Irish pub. The Fitz serves three meals a day (including hearty specialities like Irish breakfast (available all day), Yorkshire shepherd's pie, beef stew, and fish and chips), and stays open late every night serving cocktails and Irish drafts. Private dining available. 

There's no fitness center on-site, but the hotel provides free passes to a New York Sports Club located a few blocks away. Hotel staffers cater to individual requests, plus offer optional nightly turndown, 24-hour room service, and a helpful concierge.
