We struggled to book a Hotel not knowing the area or having visited in the past. Sofitel was a great choice. Its close to times square but down a quieter street so noise was not a factor. Our 27th floor stay was a help as well. Staff was very accomodating and pleasant. We walked everywhere from this location. Shows, restaurants, the square etc. We likely walk more than the norm wherever we go.
Bed was super comfy. We had a very nice living room + king suite which might not be in everyones budget but worth the extra if you can do it. A small but important item for us is blackout curtains that really work. These really work. We did not take advantage of the restaurant on site or the fitness facilities so can't comment on those.
i guess the bottom line is that if i were going back i'd book here first. We really liked it.
Good luck to all of you researching. Hope this helped.

The London is in a very convenient location for many attractions, including Central Park, MoMA, Rockefeller Center, and shopping on 5th Ave. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and the staff attentive. We will definitely be rebooking this hotel for our next trip to New York.

We arrived at the hotel around dinner time to be greeted by a wonderful Bell Man, named Wilson, who greeted me by name as he had been so kind to arrange a car for our airport transport. I was there with a dear friend to celebrate two milestone birthdays as well as it being both our first times in NYC. The front desk staff greeted us warmly and were quick to wish us both a happy birthday and treated us to a glass of champagne and lovely desserts. We were further given a similar type gift from the Bell Man and also a coupon to treat us to a lovely breakfast in the hotel restaurant. The restaurant was amazing and the food delightful and even though is was not so huge in size, it was one of the best meals ever! All through out two day stay, everyone went out of their way to be helpful, courteous and beyond friendly. I cannot wait to go back and could not imagine ever staying any place else but the Muse Hotel.

Beautifully refurbished, the Plaza lived up to expectations. Brilliantly located on corner of Central Park South, just at 5th Ave Subway stop. Our room was spotless, very comfortable and probably the quietest hotel room we'd ever slept in - no disturbances from other guests or noise from the streets below. (We were on the 18th Floor.) Generous and good-quality toiletries, well-proportioned bathroom with separate shower room.
Staff always happy to help, but discreet.
We only ate once in the hotel - in the Todd English restaurant. Food was really good, but we had to sit at the counter, as there's not a very big seating area. Good variety of options in the Food Hall, and lively atmosphere.
We'd definitely consider another visit - which is rare for us as we prefer trying new places.
Would certainly recommend it.

We had a lovely 4 night stay at fitzpatricks in November 2014. The room was clean and spacious for New York. I read reviews saying that you should stay on higher floors but we found the noise both from the bar downstairs and the street outside to be minimal, (we were on the third floor). The staff were very friendly and helpful. One waitress at dinner even explained that we had added a tip onto the bill which already had a tip included, it would've been easy to say nothing and myself and my wife admired her honesty. The barman was very good. Particularly helpful was the two concierges (is that the plural of concierge?) Garfield checked us in online before we left for our flight and was very friendly. Michael went above and beyond in that he booked trips for us, shopped for the best rates for shows and even went as far as locating a frozen snowglo doll which we wanted for our daughter for christmas ( there was only one left in New York and Michael located it, reserved it and texted us directions on how to get there)
All in all, we loved our trip and this was due in large part to the pleasant, helpful and unobtrusive staff of fitzpatricks grand central.

Outstanding hotel. I used to love to stay at the Barbizon Tulip which was a few blocks up from the Fitzpatrick. The Fitz reminds me of the best of Barbizon--great neighborhood, friendly and polite staff, boutique style hotel, well kept and well-run.
