Intercontinental Experience

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.

Absolutely Fabulous.

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.

Lovely Hotel in Mid town Manhatten

We were greeted by very friendly staff. Our check in was quick and stress free. Our room was spotlessly clean and well decorated and furnished. A lovely big walk in closet with iron and ironing board and extra bedding. Facilities were excellent with an in house business centre and gift shop. The restaurant was very pleasant and served delicious food. We were situated at the back of the hotel and heard no traffic noise at night, which is a great bonus. The bed was huge and the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in. The room temperature was easy to control and the bathroom always well stocked with provisions.

We went for my daughter's 21st birthday to nyc. the rooms are really nice. The location is great and the staff very nice and helpful. the hotel lobby is a little dated but that is a very minor issue. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it.

Perfec stay in NYC!

Excelent hotel midtown, close to many attractions. We love the service, especially the Conciergerie, where Dominic and Julieta were very attentive and helpful. Classic hotel with large rooms, clean. Sure we will be there again next time in NY.

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

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.
