We stayed here in April 2017 for 7 nights. I will strongly consider staying here again. You can't beat the location, no matter which attractions you want to visit in NYC--it's centrally located so you can get anywhere in the city relatively easily. It is a very nice hotel with nice ambience. We were surprised by how large the room...

Even if I'm not a fan of fan of huge hotels this one was excellent. The service desk at the entrance is slow since there are only to reception desks but I hope this will be fixed because waiting half an hour for the checkin and checkout is too much. On the other side, the rooms are very nice, clean...

Had 8 nights here and it was perfect from start to finish, working as a Head concierge in a 5 star hotel in Mayfair London, I would like to think I know something about hospitality and incredible service and the Intercontinental Barclay certainly ticks all the right boxes. Special thanks to Suzana on the concierge desk who is professional, informative,...

The hotel recently completed a major renovation and is a great place to stay in the mid town area. Rooms are good sized, clean and updated with USB ports and a smart TV. Staff were friendly and attentive. Hotel bar was well stocked and prices were reasonable for NYC. Only surprise was room services which was high, even for NYC....

I've been staying at this hotel over the last 10+ years before and after its multi-million dollar renovation which was completed mid-2016. The lobby is cozy and welcoming with sofas, leather high back chairs, etc. They even put votive candles in little crystal bowls in the lobby at night which make it even cozier. The bar area in the lobby...

We were served by the head bartender Jose Torrella and the drinks we terrific, mixed perfectly....Jose could not have made us feel more at home.....I highly recommend you try the...

This is a beautiful hotel which has recently been completely refurbished to a high standard and we had a very pleasant stay. All of the employees we spoke with were very courteous and professional. The only negative thing I could say is we thought the room service prices were beyond ridiculous. After arriving from a long flight on a very...

Just a wonderful place to stay. The employees are focused on service, wonderfully comfortable bed, excellent shower, and wonderful breakfast buffet to start your day. The building and rooms were clean and well maintained. Choose the breakfast with a room option and the buffet is included with your room. Located in midtown on the east side. Short walk to two...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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
