As I stated above, this hotel does everything right! I stay in many hotels, and this one gets it right: modern, spacious rooms; well laid out bathroom; good air conditioning; convenient services. Best of all, as always, the staff make the difference! Not only the front desk, but the maintenance staff were friendly, as well! Will certainly return.

The BWP Barclay Hotel is a clean, comfortable and well-represented hotel, and their artwork on and in the building is wonderful. Don't forget to view the beautiful 'Walt Collins' mural in the front lobby. Many features of our King Suite included a good pillow selection, a 5-star comfort mattress, the mini fridge, coffee maker, E-Bath supplies, and a flat screen...

Card readers very touchy, was stuck outside the room several times fiddling with it - and even the manager could not demonstrate how to make it work...
