Facilities are modern yet classy and the location is so convenient with its proximity to Grand Central Station. Amenities such as conference and banquet rooms, as well as bar / restaurant are the tops. The bar is a lovely and comfortable place to meet for cocktails.

The recently renovated Barclay is a very classy and beautiful hotel! It is so elegant. The staff will bend over backwards to try to make you happy. They are very socially conscious and really practice what they preach on sustainability initiatives. I highly recommend their event space. It's a great space for a business or social function. The food in...

I was so comfortable in my spotless room. Fantastic service, so friendly. I ordered room service on 3 occasions and it was fast and the food was good. Beds were super comfy. Lots of little touches in the room. I will be back!

Renovation has done a miracle to this hotel. I just loved the elegant room, the mixture of modern and old in decoration everywhere in the hotel. The staff is always helpful, smiling and they never say no. The Gin bar in the lobby is a nice place to relax and waiter Mr. M is super. Actually, they all are. The...

We stayed 3 nights. Loved the room, very comfortable even though small. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The lobby area and front door area were also inviting. The decor was classy, but the staff weren't stuffy. Just a couple of negatives.Door entrance into the room was awkward because of an inserted closet. Door opening should have gone in opposite...

I stayed at the InterContinental NY Barclay for 5 nights and I everything was fabulous. The room was beautiful and the bed was extra comfortable. The hotel amenities are luxurious, especially the bath robe and the slippers; after the whole day walking around the city, the best part was arriving to the hotel room, take a hot shower and enfold...

Before staying I read a lot of the reviews. I stay in NYC once per year, but always seem to stay at the Waldorf. I was excited to try a new hotel that was recently renovated. I was shocked at how small the king rooms were. The rooms with two beds are a little bigger, but the beds are Full...

I was looking for a hotel for Presidents' Day weekend and found an insanely good deal for the InterContinental Barclay. After booking, I read some mixed reviews - however the negative ones seem to come from rewards members who are used to extra perks and service. If you're just looking for a nice, relaxing place to spend the night, the...

This is a very nice hotel. Wonderful remodeling, spacious rooms and good service. I can't say it's not a good hotel. I expected a great nights sleep given the quality of the hotel but the beds are too hard and others felt the same (so it wasn't just me). The breakfast prices are outrageous (as are any other decent hotel...

We stayed here for 3 nights over the St Patrick's weekend. Lovely spacious room on floor 11. Room 1106 right at corner. Never heard a thing at night was so quiet, although that might be because of all the walking that made us in a deep sleep. Perfect location for us and hotel staff where lovely. Hopefully be back soon.

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
