A bit of the Emerald Isle in the Empire State.
Across from Grand Central Station travelers will find this second New York City hotel from the Irish Fitzpatrick group. The property offers a warm, comfortable and personal feel. There are 155 rooms, all with elegant décor including antique reproductions and a full range of amenities such as dual-line telephones with data ports and fax machines. The bathrobes are Irish and so are the linens and towels. The penthouse suite, with fireplace and wraparound outdoor terrace, is named after Liam Neeson and features portraits of the Irish actor. At the back of the lobby, the Wheeltapper Pub recalls the many Irish workers who built America's railroads, even though most of the artifacts --- signals and signal cabin levers --- came from Ireland. The Wheeltapper is popular for its substantial Irish breakfasts and other pub grub. The all seasons outdoor lounge, The Patio, provides a laid back social scene for drinks at sunset.
