Great vacation value!!!

Great location close to Grand Central Station and subways, walk to 5th Ave, cozy diners within 2 blocks, Starbucks across the street, the Concierge Domenic is the go to guy, other staff also very professional an courteous. There is no vending machine, but gift shop is open until 11pm. Bad: I woke up with back pain every morning for a week because the mattress was too worn out. It sinks in the middle and leans to the left. The doormen sure can whistle for taxi because I hear them loud an clear from 10 floors up and from 7am to 11pm. We got free wifi internet for being IHG members. Print boarding pass for free at the business center downstairs. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend.

very nice

I was pleasantly surprised. I did not expect to check into my room as my arrival was at 8a.m. I was immediately checked into a room and a bit of an upgrade. The room was remarkably large ...NYC rooms aren't known for their size. The pillow top bed was luxurious as were the wonderful linens. There was a welcome plate with dates, fruit and bottled water...nice touch. Kuerig coffee maker was very easy. The location was great for sights uptown or downtown. The staff,,, very pleasant and helpful.

Superb treatment

Our recent stay at the Intercontinental New York Barclay was like a dream come true. We had a large fabulous suite with every amenity possible. The staff went to great lengths to see that everything was right and showed us hospitality that would rival any hotel in the world. We would definitely recommend The Barclay to our friends and to anyone who enjoys being pampered.

Wonderful NYC Visit

The Intercontinental NY Barclay is a lovely place to stay and is centrally located in the Manhattan area. It was very easy to walk to 5th Avenue, Times Square, Rock Center, and St. Patrick. The staff was very helpful in recommending places to eat and visit while we were in NYC. It was our first time in NYC and we certainly picked the right place to stay.
