It was very convenient for us as we had a function at the hotel. Good location for sightseeing. We did however, find the food and drink expensive.

The property is great. We were happy with our room, but we had a hiccup with check-in. Due to a medical condition, I put notes in my request when booking the room noting the condition and what I needed. Although I alerted the front desk clerk to these notes, she still booked me in a room which I couldn't stay in. I had to go down to the front desk again and have a different agent change my room. I know that lots of guests put in requests, but mine was about a medical condition and I didn't appreciate it not being honored the first time around.

Cleanliness of rooms, very quiet, close to everything ( we literally walked every where),close to restaurants - I would Definitely stay there again.

The property, room, comfort, amenities - were all great! Location is great too, felt safe walking in the area late at nights. I'd certainly consider this hotel for my future stays in NY.

Great hotel in a very good location. Only 1 block to the #6 subway and a short walk to Grand Central or Times Square. I would stay here again.

Excellent in all categories. Very conveniently located. First class all the way. We will definitely stay here again next year on our annual NYC trip.

This was my third stay at the Barclay Intercontinental & I loved it. My favorite place to stay in NYC!!! Everyone is so helpful & accommodating. Perfect location & beautiful hotel!!

Spacious and comfortable by any standards especially NYC. Beautiful lounge, nice gym and helpful staff.

Great location and friendly staff, shower very nice, and bed comfortable

close to grand central station. quiet room for the most part.

We had a lovely time in NYC and our hotel was so beautiful. I was super impressed with the room décor, a bed you didn't want to get out of, the lighting fixtures in the room and the wonderful bathroom.

Asked for the manager to call me, never heard a whisper from her. Pretty sad considering my elite status with Priority Club. They seem not to care if you book through a third party.
