The hotel was refurbed earlier this year apparently and everything is in pristine condition. Our room was perfect, the hotel made sure us and our family were on the same floor and the location is great.

You get the sense of pleasure by the door step to the hotel. The staff are welcoming and very service-minded. The hotel is newly renovated in classic but at the same time contemporary style. The guest rooms including the bathroom are spacious (for Manhattan) and tasteful furnished.

We stayed here over Christmas and New Years and were glad we chose this hotel. From the moment that we arrived we were disappointed, the hotel was dressed in Christmas decorations and had a Christmas tree in the centre of the foyer. Check in was quick and easy, we arrived early and our room was available. The hotel had recently...

Absolutely loved it. Classy both inside and out. Impeccable staff It's in a great location about 10 mins from Rockefeller centre and 15 mins from Times Square. We stayed in room 1254 it's was beautifully decorated and good size too. The bathroom was the same. We suffered no noise from traffic whatsoever I would not hesitate to stay here again...

I stayed in the InterContinental NY Barclay back in May of 2016. I was headed to New Haven, CT to a friends graduation from Yale, and figured I would just make an extended weekend trip out of it since the graduation was on a Monday. The hotel is one of a kind with a breath taking ambiance and newly renovated....

My husband and I stayed at the Intercontinental Barclay in December and over Christmas. The hotel lobby was beautiful and when we arrived there was a choir from the Frank Sinatra School of Performing Arts singing Christmas carols which made for a very special arrival. As Intercontinental IHG members we were offered club access. Unfortunately the club was closed when...

I stayed during thanksgiving with my family who came to visit me out in the US. When we arrived unfortunately there was a little trouble with the rooms, they had not put enough beds in each room and insisted that it was my aunts fault for 'booking it wrong', which then later after much debate they did admit it was...

A traditional NYC hotel fully renovated. Traditional lobby and elevators with small but well designed fully renovated rooms. Heated bathroom floor, comfy bed and sheets. Stayed for a work conference and the conference team did a great job. Very attentive. Only found 1 restaurant in the lobby and it was s bit average.

We stayed here for a Christmas getaway and loved the hotel. The lobby area is very welcoming and there was a grand Christmas Tree right in the middle. The bell hops and front doormen are very friendly and are very helpful to any questions. Customer service is great at the hotel as well. We took a red-eye flight from the...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since first opening its doors in 1926, the InterContinental New York Barclay has welcomed countless guests to enjoy a luxurious residential-style experience in the heart of the city. Originally constructed as part of the Grand Central Terminal expansion, The Barclay became one of four notable railroad hotels built to service the well-heeled men and women travelling to New York City. Its convenient location, directly above the railroad tracks, permitted the hotel the unique distinction of having its own platform in the basement, ideal for the upscale rail traveler who occasionally arrived by private train car. In addition to its Midtown East location, the hotel made an immediate impact with tenants and critics alike for its characteristic atmosphere of comfort and elegant domesticity. From that moment, The Barclay began to write its history as the hotel of choice for those looking to take respite in this stately residential hotel of international prestige. Today, the InterContinental New York Barclay remains Manhattan’s preeminent luxury hotel after undergoing the most ambitious restoration in its history. Combining sophistication and contemporary design, while staying true to its original Federalist style details, The Barclay exudes confidence and warmth, delivering the same residential feel with modern comfort and flexibility introduced to the world in 1926. ... more   less
