FIVE STAR COMFORT

The Intercontinental Barclay New York is probably the nicest hotel I have stayed in during my visits to New York. From the grand lobby to the comfortable and well-appointed rooms, it was delightful staying at the Barclay. It is understandable why the Barclay is a five star property!

Great place.

Room and fitness center as well as lobby dining was great. I could not print out my boarding pass however, using the computers in the lobby. The business office offered to do it for me though!

Great Location

The Intercontinental Barclay was a great hotel experience. There was room for two to move around comfortably. The location was excellent, it provided easy access to Times Square and great shopping on Park and Fifth Avenues.

Great location and good staff

The hotel was great. The location was excellent. I enjoyed the city at any time. The hotel in walking distance to the 5th Ave, the Rockefeller center, the Empire State, Time Square, the Great Central Station, and 12 block away from Central Park. If you go as a tourist I recommend this hotel. The hotel is in good standard, the service is good. The concergie was very useful.

5th Ave. is at 3 blocks away. You will find many restaurants and stores. I used to go to an Sbarro (Italian restaurant) nearby when I didn't want to expend too much money. There is an Starbucks 1 block away and good cafe on Madison Ave. and 48st for breakfast also.

Beautiful place to relax

These beds are unbelievable! The pillowtop mattresses were perfect, as were the pillows. The room was larger than we expected so that, and the great air conditioning in the peak of the summer swelter, was a welcome respite. We were outpriced when it came to in-room snacks and the hotel restaurant but the nearby delis and, of course, the street vendors, gave us a perfect New York option. We paid more than we're use to but, it's New York! Would definitely use this hotel again.

Just blocks away from major attractions like Rockefeller Center, Chrysler Building; Madison, Park, Fifth, and Times Square all within easy distance; metro (subway) only three blocks away.
