InterContinental New York Barclay

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great stay! The room was pristine and clean. The staff was very nice and helpful. Everything was well appointed. The only complaint is that I could hear a little bit of the outside as we were close to the elevator. Otherwise, bed and sheets were clean and comfortable. No complaints at all. Very close to the Grand Central Station, about 15-19 minutes to Central Park, very close to Rockefeller Center and 5th Avenue shopping etc, etc. Too many things to list that is amazing about this location! Also a plus the hotel isn't on an avenue so the noise factor from outside is good.

Everything was fantastic!!! Great location as well!

A very central location. The building looks old from outside but is well maintained inside. I stayed for 9 nights and had a good time. Lots of eateries in the area.

Great hotel that is really close to most attractions in midtown Manhattan. I personally loved it. Great staff, clean rooms and good location. What more can a turist ask.

Very nice hotel with a great location. Convenient to Grand Central.

Good location but decor is a little dated. Room was clean but staff at bar was inattentive and took forever to deliver drinks.

I've stayed in a lot of hotels in NYC. The room was way bigger than I expected, nicely decorated, and the bed was comfortable. I will definitely stay here again. Also, hotel is in a great spot to communte easily on subway or car. It's definitely a nicer, newer hotel.

Customer service was awesome, especially the guys in concierge. Room was a bit small (welcome to NY) but very clean. Hotel was within about a mile or less to attractions such as Central Park, Madison Ave shopping and Times Square - me, my wife and toddler son had no problems walking anywhere. We enjoyed.

Amazing stay, beautiful room. Loved the attention to detail regarding decor throughout entire hotel. Hotel staff is top notch. In a convenient location for catching a Broadway show!

The hotel met our expectations. Everything was good.

Nice location, great hotel one of the better ones in nyc. I loved it!

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.

Friendly customer service throughout my stay. In town for business, and some light exploring. Walking distance to main attractions. I would stay here again.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hotel's check in time is at 3 pm. I arrived for check in after 3 pm and the receptionist informed me that i was on a "waiting list" for check in. She asked me for my tel # and informed that she will call me when a room was available. Upon inquiry, she stated that since the housekeeping was falling behind, my room was "not ready". To add to that, she could not give me any time frame when my room will be ready. I waited for almost an hour in the hotel lobby without any courtesy shown by the hotel authorities for their inefficiency. I had to re-approach another receptionist who finally got me a room. It was a very unpleasant experience, considering the fact that in spite of charging top dollars for my room and after a tiring trip, I was kept waiting in the lobby. The hotel staff were very inefficient and did not show any courtesy to correct their lack of professionalism. I will not recommend this hotel.

Very classy and clean NYC location! Just a walk, cab ride or subway trip away from everything!
