... told us the bus was having problems, so we could go and get a coffee if we wanted to. So, as you do, I offered to go and get a drink for me and Jamie...only to realise when I got back that I had gone to the wrong coffee shop and the bus had been waiting for me...whurps! Anyway, the night tour was good, we drove over Manhattan Bridge to see the iconic skyline and it is barely recognisable with half of the city blacked out - it was a pretty incredible sight actually. On Sunday ...

Organised coach tour this morning with New Yorker Laurie as our guide - very knowledgeable and funny. We drove around all the "tourist traps", 5th Avenue, Empire State (would I be able to make it to the top tomorrow....?), down into Greenwich Village and around Central Park, including of course the Dakota building where John Lennon lived, and died outside of. We had a stop at Ground Zero where work is slowly being done ...
... Immerhin gibt es in der Music Hall ein Happy Hour-Bier für 5 Dollar. Da kann man nicht meckern. Wir drehen noch eine Runde durch Williamsburg. Die Bars und Restaurants auf der Bedford Avenue sind jetzt richtig voll. Ist wohl die Berger Straße von Brooklyn.

I wake at 5am but manage to go back to sleep until 10. Being on the go all day takes it out of you and I try to get as much sleeps as possible.
I get ready for my day - the house appears empty? Usually someone is here. I head out to the light rail and wait in the sunshine for the train, as usual, swapping trains at Hoboken and heading to Herald Sq. I've got a ticket to Mary Poppins at 2, and it's now midday - lunch time. From ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fitzpatrick Manhattan New York City
Good, Not Great.
Went on a shopping trip mid February and had heard so much from the Gerry Ryan Show (irish users will know what I mean!), that I was really dissappointed. Could have stayed at the Waldorf for the same price! There is a tiny bar and restaurant downstairs, which was actually closed for a private function one night and there were no other facilities in the hotel. Room was lovely but overall not what we expected at all!
Just stayed in Fitzpatrick for a week over Christmas.
Excellent hotel in a brilliant location and very friendly staff.
Could not find one fault.
If you are planning on staying there, there's a great Irish bar just a minute away on 3rd Avenue - Pig n' Whistle.
Well, it looks like I'm the second Irish reviewer. My wife and I spent the last four days of our honeymoon at Fitzpatrick's in June. We really liked the hotel and the friendly staff. The location on Lex is great and there's a subway stop on the corner of 59th, no distance away. The rooms are a little small, but who cares, you're in the middle of everything, it's not like you're going to sit in your room all day while NY buzzes outside the door. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Nice Hotel, Great location
Am I the first Irish person to review this Irish hotel? Fantastic location, just down the street from Bloomingdales and many great restaurants. Very friendly staff. Rooms OK size for NY. Bathrooms small. Would certainly recommend for value and location.
Loved the Fitzpatrick!
The Fitzpatrick was so nice! Small room but hey it's NY! Very clean, VERY nice bathroom! Nice bed! Not a great view but that's ok! Everything made up for it! Robes in the room, nice and warm (we came in December 2003). Very quaint, nice and helpful staff and had a beer in the bar downstairs. GREAT HOTEL and I wish I could afford to stay there all the time! My husband's company paid for our room (I think it was $400). Great location! PERFECT!
Booked over the internet - got a good price. Delighted to be upgraded to junior suite on arrival - loved the bathrobe. Was luxurious and clean. Comfy bed and pillows. Friendly staff. Good location.
What more could you ask for?
Helped make an excellent vacation.
The Fitzpatrick Manhattan is truly a wonderful hotel. The service is excellent, the rooms are luxurious, (though remember this is NY, so they aren't big). Still, everything from the quality of the beds, the bedding and the toiletries were very high quality. This property has the feel of a four star hotel, but the price of a three star. I tried to check in early, and my room wasn't ready yet, so they gave me a voucher for a free drink at their bar while I waited. Little things like that make all the difference. I wish I could have stayed longer, and would definitely stay there again!
Even if money was no object, the Fitzpatrick is still the hotel I'd choose
The Fitzpatrick on Lexington avenue is the epitomy of class. The staff is friendly and helpful, and is accomodating on the level I would equate to "Fairmont Hotel" properties. The suites are tastefully furished with lovely amenities such as bathrobes, slippers, sparkling water with chocolates in the evening. The bellmen are the friendliest in NYC. As for location, it's close to everything, though I will admit, taxis can be a bit of a problem during rushhour and inclement weather-welcome to NYC! If you're going shopping with teens, you've hit the jackpot. Within four blocks is Barami's, Kenneth Cole, Banana Republic, Aldo's, The Gap, Express, Deisel, and best of all, Bloomingdales. The list goes on. (btw...If you've forgotten what personal attention by sales "professionals" is like, don't miss Bloomies. Back to the hotel, don't forget to stop in Fitzers bar where Thomas and Carol, who has a phenominal memory for your drink of choice, will take care of you. If you're lucky, Carol will serenade you. I love this place. Can't wait to get back.
There is no fireside...
...Like your own fireside~Irish proverb.
The Fitzpatrick Hotel, Manhattan, was home away from home. Clean, courteous, and a harbinger of rest. The pillows and bed are out of this world! They offer all of the amenities~robes, umbrellas, 2 wake-up calls, etc.~and the location is central. It's walking distance from many of the sights...Rockefeller Center, Saks Fifith Avenue, St.
Patrick's Cathedral, etc. ...These people make an effort to please their residents. I'll definitely stay there next time I'm in NYC!
Great Family Hotel
Family and friends give us the opportunity to travel to New York at least once a year and we are in love with the Fitzpatrick. We take a Jr. Suite with our kids- who think sleeping on a pull-out couch is a treat- and we are more than comfortable. The location of these rooms in the hotel tends to be better than some of the "inside" rooms. The rooms are large enough that we sometimes have our friends come visit us! The midtown location of the hotel is perfect for visiting, sight-seeing and shopping and we walk to Central Park regularly. But, the best thing about the Fitzpatrick is the staff, many of whom remember us (pleasantly I hope) from visit to visit. If you are going to New York with kids- which I will recommend, too- then the Fitzpatrick is a winner.
