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. There are certain things that can impact your stay in a hotel that you don't always think of. For instance, never having to wait for an elevator, a nice smell in common... More

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.

A truly luxurious hotel. The big money that Intercontinental hotel spent to renovate the hotel, clearly shows. Located on Lexington Ave. the hotel is close to lot of attractions. The breakfast is excellent and so is the bar. Tell the Bartender to prepare you a cocktail of her choice. You will not be disappointed. Nicely appointed luxurious room with toiletries... More

Good location, nice new room and so far very courteous staff. Very disappointed that there is a $16.00 daily charge for internet access. Really....? It seems there is an inverse correlation between hotel room rates and what they charge for Wifi. Inexpensive hotels offer it free while SOME expensive hotels charge for it. A real nickel dime turn off....... .

Jose Torelles, the head bartender, is exceptional in his knowledge and accomodation. We asked for a specific gin (among the 94 offered!) which was unavailable but he introduced us to alternatives and educated us on the four types of gin. When we returned the next day he remembered our original request and had received a shipment that day & made... More

Love this hotel and all the staff here, they were beyond amazing!

This hotel epitomizes New York glamour. The property and guest rooms are gorgeous, but the service is really what sets it apart. The staff are all wonderful and they bend over backwards to make sure your stay is comfortable and memorable. Wonderful place and would definitely recommend staying here!

We needed a place last minute for our recent family trip to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the entire hotel staff was fabulous except the service from the waiter at brunch.

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
