Overall we really enjoyed our stay and will consider staying here again when we return to NYC. The hotel has a really nice style and the room was modern and really comfortable. The breakfast buffet was fantastic and the service at breakfast was good. But although I've given five stars for room comfort, location, style and breakfast, we felt that...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 March 2017

I arrived at the InterContinental New York Barclay on December 23rd at 4pm for 4 nights. Check-in was quick, friendly and I got a very nice room. As I had requested, they gave me a room on a higher floor, the 15th floor (room 1544). The room had a good view of Lexington Avenue with an art deco building in...

When my wife arrived at the hotel before me, no assistance was offered with her bags in the pouring rain. The doorman completely ignored her and others entering the hotel. The room itself was fine, however, there was a large wedding at the hotel during the weekend with drunken guests shouting throughout the hallways at 2AM. The front desk was...

Having undergone a complete restoration the Barclay is lovely. It is also functional with the meeting spaces centralised on one floor and two exquisite ballrooms. But, aesthetics alone are not what makes this hotel in a city bustling with hotels 'special'. The philosophy of the GM and his own personal engagement weaves its way into the magic of property. The...

This is a great hotel with regard to the rooms, layout, lobby, and location. We had bad service, though. Check-in was pretty cold. I am an IHG Platinum ambassador.

My family of three spent a week at the Barclay in April and it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. From the moment we walked into the spacious and beautifully furnished lobby I knew this was going to be a memorable experience.

Rooms are beautiful and spacious rooms in this old style hotel. Staff at check-in were friendly and accomodating. I did not use the front bar or gym but the facilities looked good. The bed was super comfortable for a great night's sleep.

First time back since the remodel. Very happy with all they did. My room is extremely comfortable. A lot of thought was paid to layout, convenience, amenities, electrical outlets, bed comfort, etc. Still a great location and fantastic staff. Tony (front desk) was especially helpful this time when I first checked in.

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
