The InterContinental NEW YORK BARCLAY first opened in 1926. Having a Federal-style facade, this 14-story landmark was funded by the prominent Vanderbilt Family. Marble floors, Neo-classical columns, archways and landscape paintings adorn the grand interior; which has been fully restored to its original glory. When you stay in one of 685 suites at this opulent hotel, you will enjoy the same accommodations that have been provided to Ronald Reagan and other notable guests throughout the years.

Barclay Bar
The Barclay's gin-themed bar is inspired by the spirit's popularity in the 1920s, when the hotel first opened, but evokes a swank '60s atmosphere that reflects the Barclay's long-held position as the hotel of choice for business movers and shakers.

Intercontinental Experience

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 23, 2014
Great location, but the hotel was a bit tired and in need of updating/renovation. Decent price, though with a little bit of work, you could surely find a nicer boutique hotel at or near the same price.

One night stay

Would not recommend Mon, Aug 4, 2014
When I made the reservation I was told the hotel did not offer room service or mini bars since the hotel was closing for renovation at the end of August. However, they failed to mention that the hotel also did not have in-room entertainment. The hotel its self is in an ok location, and the lobby is stunning. However, the rest of the hotel was a total disappointment. The hotel rooms were what I would expect from a two-star motel. I was so disappointed. That being said, I will try the hotel after renovations and see if it rises up to the standard that their name usual conveys

convenient, comfortable, quiet and elegant

Would recommend Mon, Jun 30, 2014
This was our first stay at the Barclay and I booked it rather late so was very pleasantly surprised at how nice it was for the price. The room was clean, the bed very comfortable, and it was quiet. The TV, shower, etc. were all up-to-date and worked well. No long waits for elevators, and staff were helpful and friendly when asked. The city maps available at the concierge desk made navigating city transportation a breeze. I would definitely return.

Very poor example of an intercontinental

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 2, 2014
I stay at many hotels (including Intercontinentals around the world) and his hotel disappoints in many ways. I was promised a VIP reception and package & also a room upgrade (I am also a IHG Gold member) but from the moment I checked in, everything was very poor. The staff attitude was very arrogant and condescending and I felt extremely unwelcome. The room was tiny, poorly furnished, tired and in need of updating. The bathroom was barely big enough to stand in and was quite unclean in many areas (hair & dust behind toilet, door and under sink). I waited nearly 2 hours for luggage and some packages to come to my room - in the end I had to go done and bring them myself. I tried calling the 'instant service' on the phone several times and they either never answered, transferred me to another never answered extension or just left me waiting. Unacceptable in a so called ''upmarket' hotel, never mind an intercontinental. IIHG please note: there is no club lounge and breakfast for one at $40 plus is outrageous. Try the 2 restaurants 50 feet away for much better service and quality and cheaper price. I do not recommend this hotel in any way.

Paper Thin Walls

Would not recommend Wed, May 28, 2014
We heard the couple next door going at it all night. We thought that for $300 a night we'd have better sound proofing but no.

the Barclay bar has some organic cocktails

Absolutely Fabulous.

Would recommend Mon, May 26, 2014
Beautiful hotel with spacious room, but the bathroom is a bit small- but it was built in 1926! The location was close to the family we visited but also close to Grand Central Station, 30 Rock and the American Girl Store. Room service was 24 hour and breakfast buffet was open at convenient time.


Great little sandwich/breakfast place on Lexington at 48th

Great stay

Would recommend Mon, May 26, 2014
We stayed at the Intercontinental Barclay at mid town east. It was close to Times Square and we walked to Central Park, Rockefeller Center, the theater district, shopping on 5th avenue. The staff was helpful with suggestions on restaurants. We would stay here again.


Caffe Linda is a great little Italian restaurant that has excellent dishes.
