Graduation Trip!

This trip was a High School Graduation present for my daughter. We met my niece in NYC and she stayed with us. The Hotel was exactly what we wanted. The flight was delayed @ JFK, can't really help that, but it was exhausting.The one complaint I have was the shuttle service. It was crowded and dirty. The driver from the hotel to the airport crowded too many people and too much luggage in. Other than that the trip was great. Thanks!

Classic & Elegant Stay, GREAT Service!!

We stayed as family, one small toddler girl for two nights on weekend. The hotel has excellent service with professional manners and friendly care to both adults and for a child. The room was classic setting with nice single cup making coffee maker, amenities helped our grooming needs well, and entire hotel hall was quiet and smelled nice flower aroma! We LOVED their breakfast beffet; all organic ingredients and fresh food yet, elegant presentation. The restaurant staffs were all professional, elegant and friendly. The location is great and all near by nice & elegant Park Ave for business needs, Madison Ave & 5th Ave for shopping. A few taxies were always waiting in the front entrance for the guests convenience and bell service was professional. We LOVE to come back to THE BARCLAY InterContinental hotel for everything we need in NYC next time!

Nice, upscale yet convenient walking distance restaurants are in Midtown East on Park, Madison and 5th Ave! But during the spring/summer, for gentlemen, refrain from your shorts and sandals for some elegant Frensh/Italian restaurants/cafes. They have dress code - no shorts.

excellent

I've been to New York at least ten times and stayed at different hotels each time. I would definitely come back to the Intercontinental Barclay. The staff was very friendly and offered some extra accomodations they thought we might need. The rooms were very clean and very nice.
