The newly renovated Barclay has vastly improved the facilities but still managed to keep up its renown service through continuity of its outstanding staff. We are always struck by the level of service offered a cross the board but especially by Annmara Gayle and Leslie Pagan in Guest Services and of course the famous Fernando and his cappuccinos delivered with...

This hotel shows a very successful refurbish with classical decoration and elegant atmosphere. The room was also comfortable and I was very impressive with the wall mural. Location was great next to the 51sth metro station. The only complaint is the stingy front desk. I am a IHG platinum member and I asked a bottle of water at the front...

This place has nicely remodeled rooms. The rooms are HUGE for New York standards. You get a free upgrade and free internet if you are a IHG member. The guys in the front are really helpful. When it was raining, they had umbrellas for everyone.

Dear dxu8888, Thank you for your kind complements, especially about the size of our rooms. It is challenging as a hotel in NYC to provide very spacious rooms similar to resorts, but we do our best to make our guests' stay comfortable, luxurious and relaxing.

Lovely hotel. Jazzy music as you walk in. Nice atmosphere with a warm and welcoming entrance that also exudes luxury and elegance. Check in efficient and professional. Ask for a room on Lexington or on 43rd street. Some room might otherwise be dark. The hotel has recently been renovated and rooms are modern and chic. Smaller than what you might...

We stayed here via a Priceline deal for a weekend trip. Overall, it's a comfortable hotel and the basic room on this property (the "superior room") is reasonably sized for NY. The mural on the wall opposite of the bed makes the room feel more spacious. There are many little touches that make the property feel nice, such as gold...

There is very little that one can fault about this hotel. The price is very competitive and the location is ideal for both business and holiday people alike. I have stayed here twice in the past month and will again be staying this week. The rooms are modern and very comfortable. The bar in the lobby is fantastic for gin...

My sister and I stayed here for 9 nights in November 2016. It is more of a boutique hotel with charm and friendliness. The staff were very welcoming and the room although not large was very comfortable. We had a beautiful view of the Chrysler Building out our window. The bed was one of the most comfy that I have...

We enjoyed our stay in the Barclay. It was very quiet, we only really saw a few people in the lobby when we walked through it each day. Corridors were quiet and we never heard any noise from outside the room. Bed was comfortable and room amenities were good. Could have done with more milk and tea rather than coffee,...

Really well located and gorgeous hotel. Close to all the shopping and to Central Park, as well as the green line subway line. You can go to Brooklyn in about 10-15 minutes! The staff is so sweet and helpful, both in the Gin parlour and at the desk. The hotel is newly decorated so it feels (and smells:)) really fresh....

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
