Holiday Visit

I've been staying at the "Barclay" for over 30 years . I miss the "Bird Cage", but the place, the bar and the dining room are still 4.0. One disappointment was witnessing a somewhat surly busman in the dining room at Saturday brunch...not to us but to the hostess who asked him to make up a table. I thought that was a busman's job!

Great vacation

It's our fourth year in a row at the Intercontinental Barclays and we love it. Home away from home. Perfect location for our needs and we lacked for nothing. Heartily recommended.

Adjoining Family rooms at the Barclay Interconinental

A wonderful stay. Very accommodating staff (the 2nd half of our family arrived a day after us, but 'no problem' putting us in adjoining rooms. Concierge gave us great advice a number of times and we felt as if his choices were tailored to us and not his standard goto places. We like to have a nightcap at the bar, and it's a nice bar, but caution on the prices, even for a pair of chards. We rate this hotel highly - thank you Orbtz.

Great location for everything

I stayed here during my business trip to NYC. The room was great with super high bed that you have to literally climb on it. Bathroom is small but I can live with it in NYC. Location is great. It is only a couple blocks from the Grand Central Station and couple streets away from 5th Ave. I enjoyed my stay here.

Great location

We had a good room on the 4th floor. It was clean and was standard American hotel size, which was larger than I was expecting in Manhattan. Lots of honking clear through the night, but we got used to it and got a good sleep both nights. A room higher up might be better if you're a light sleeper. This hotel is within easy walking distance of Grand Central Station, which makes pretty much everything in Manhattan easily accessible. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Going to the Statue of Liberty? Buy tickets online well in advance. They sell out entirely very early in the morning.
