We had a very enjoyable 5 night stay at this hotel. Contrary to what everyone warned me about the room was spacious enough for three of us ladies. When we arrived the staff "bent over backwards" to accommodate us, by the second day we weren't receiving extra towels or enough glasses for us and on the 5th day our room... More

Our stay at the Barclay really exceeded our expectations. The lobby is very grand, and the whole hotel feels classy and historic. The room itself was very large by Manhattan standards, and the beds were exceptionally comfortable. I could have slept all day in that bed! There was a good amount of electrical outlets and the wifi worked very well... More

I went to New York and decided to stay in this hotel as it was close to Times Square and there was a Shake Shack around the corner. We had a nice clean room and we had two double beds with comfy sheets and pillows. The bathroom was very clean and we also had a large TV in our room,... More

This hotel is situated in a great location if you are planning a sightseeing trip to NYC. The room was very clean, hotel staff friendly and helpful. Room only deal so didn't use the restaurant or room service so cannot comment on that front. Short walk to Times Square and Top of the Rock, 5th Avenue. We enjoyed our stay... More

This is an elite hotel brand and we expected an excellent stay for two nights. A very disappointing experience. When you check in you are told that the hotel is soon to be renovated and there has been a reduction in some services, but that they were offering free internet access. The first room was unsatisfactory because of way too... More

HORRID !!!! So disgusting... most unclean hotel I have ever stayed in. The first room I stayed in was beyond horrid. The toilet wasn't flushed. Needless to say I complained. Second room they moved me to, "an upgrade" had hair in the bathtub and dust everywhere. Third room, "a suite" had stains on the sheets. I gave up and switched... More

We booked 2 rooms for our family visit to NYC for 3 nights. Our mistake was to select a hotel was a little 'businessy' and not very family oriented. It was a long walk from Times Square. But that's the only part of this episode I'll take responsibility for. From the word go this place failed to live up to... More

The hotel was absolutely beautiful and the service was great. However, it was clear they were undergoing a restoration via a few indicators: 1- they would run out of bottles of wine and you had to choose from others instead of them having additional bottles. 2- the second night I was there they left a note in my room stating...

Nice hotel with lovely staff. Stayed here for 4 nights in May 2013. Hotel & rooms are kept clean. Beds are huge and very comfortable. The restaurant in the hotel is fantastic with some amazing food & drinks, can be pricey so if you would prefer a cheaper meal you can find other restaurants very close by to the hotel.... More
