My sister and I stayed at the InterContinental Barclay in New York to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Although I had requested early check-in, I wasn't sure it would be available. We did arrive early in the morning and we were very surprised that our room was ready. The room was immaculate. We got to freshen up and get to the... More

We stayed here for a week, 7th floor and slept brilliantly. The bed was unbelievable comfortable which is a must after so many hours walking around NY. Great location, friendly staff and just perfect for the package deal we got. Even better if it had free wifi. Thank you

We found for a first time visit to NYC, this hotel well located for our needs/ wants, then the saying is location, location, location! The overall look and feel of the hotel is very traditional and gives a kind of fortys/fiftys styling this may be intentional? The room was spacious, and well fitted out generally, although the bathroom was very... More

Stayed at the Intercontinental Barclay New York for a long weekend and was very excited as it was my first trip to New York and it did not disappoint. The hotel is in an excellent location , fairly close to Grand Central Station and just around the corner from the Waldorf Hotel and St Patrick's Cathedral. Check in was very... More

We are currently staying here and while the location and room is fine the bathroom is the size of an averaged sized bath mat. Both my husband and I are averaged sized and relatively fit. You have no chance if you are neither of these! You have to be a contortionist to reach the toilet paper. I have lost count... More

I have stayed here a few times and it's just a wonderful hotel with great staff. It could do with a little refurb but for the location/cost and ambience it's a good solid choice the 24hr food/convenience store across the street is a gem.

This was our first holiday to New York, and our first international holiday for a few years, so it was a big deal for us. The Barclay appeared to be the sort of hotel we wanted - not in the middle of Times Square, so a quieter location but still close to everything, and a lovely looking traditional hotel. This... More

Yes, this hotel has seen its years and will be closing for a one year renovation this summer, but the place is pretty good, rooms are small (average for the city) but very good staff from concierge to housekeeping make stays here a pleasure. Located close to UN, 5th, Madison and a short walk to Boradway, definitively a good option... More

First, the good - The Barclay is excellently located on E48th and Park Avenue, not far from Grand Central Stn and a gentle stroll from the shops of 5th Ave and Central Park. It has a classic turn of the century facade and large lobby area well furnished but rather busy with some "bridge and tunnel" clientele Check in was... More

Dear guest, We are very disappointed to read your post and would like to extend our sincerest apologies.
