On arrival at the hotel the check in staff seemed a bit uninterested. We were handed our keys and pointed in the direction of the lift. We were given a free wifi code, but have heard that some rooms have to pay. Room was very clean and well appointed but quite small. The bathroom was lovely too but again quite...

Booked 5 nights at Intercontinental with a suite plus a 2nd connecting room. I'll start with the key positive: the bell service are very courteous, helpful and dedicated professionals. Aside from this positive this hotel experience was awful. Started with a room that had cigarette smoke blasting into the room from the vent. Rather than treating this deeply unpleasant and...

This was my first visit since they remodeled the hotel and it is better than ever. Everything is bright and comfortable without losing the cozy feel. The staff continues to be top-shelf and makes the stay.

An upscale hotel with good service, clean and roomy rom and nice staff. You feel welcome when you are checking in. It might be a bit pricy, but we had a good deal over the Thanksgiving weekend. Good amenities in the room, a very good coffeemaker and towels are good and soft. Will look for deals at this hotel next...

The Barclay was one of the landmark luxury hotels its era; this history is honored with a nice display by the guest elevators. I stayed here on a recent business trip and enjoyed all of the hotel's features: newly renovated guest rooms, fitness center, bar dining. The bed was very comfortable and my room was quiet. But nice facilities and...

I hope I always have enough money or points to stay in this hotel when I visit NYC. Tasteful. Incredibly well kept. Kudos for housekeeping & service! Room service is pricey as usual. But beds & linens make me want to weep, they're so perfect!

We stayed (family of 4) for one night after Thanksgiving in a suite. It looked as though it had been renovated recently - the tile was brand new! It's small but appointed nicely and we had a pull out couch and a roll away. We were away from the elevator and it was quiet. The location is right around the...

This hotel just reopened after extensive renovations and it looks fantastic. It is tastefully decorated and very high end. We have stayed 3 times and will be back.

The people who work here are incredibly warm and hospitable, we felt as though we were being welcomed into someone's home (albeit a very big, and nice home) for the day. Can't say enough about this place - wonderful experience from top to bottom. Thanks!

This is a wonderful property. From the moment we pulled up, it was a class act. Valet and Bell service were fast, efficient and very friendly. The hotel staff were so gracious and the service was impeccable! The recent renovation has made this hotel truly luxurious and a true gem in New York city!!! It is well worth a visit.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since first opening its doors in 1926, the InterContinental New York Barclay has welcomed countless guests to enjoy a luxurious residential-style experience in the heart of the city. Originally constructed as part of the Grand Central Terminal expansion, The Barclay became one of four notable railroad hotels built to service the well-heeled men and women travelling to New York City. Its convenient location, directly above the railroad tracks, permitted the hotel the unique distinction of having its own platform in the basement, ideal for the upscale rail traveler who occasionally arrived by private train car. In addition to its Midtown East location, the hotel made an immediate impact with tenants and critics alike for its characteristic atmosphere of comfort and elegant domesticity. From that moment, The Barclay began to write its history as the hotel of choice for those looking to take respite in this stately residential hotel of international prestige. Today, the InterContinental New York Barclay remains Manhattan’s preeminent luxury hotel after undergoing the most ambitious restoration in its history. Combining sophistication and contemporary design, while staying true to its original Federalist style details, The Barclay exudes confidence and warmth, delivering the same residential feel with modern comfort and flexibility introduced to the world in 1926. ... more   less
