Hotel is lovely and has beautiful art deco features, hopefully the current renovations will be sympathetic to these. Location was ideal, we found that most things were within walking distance but for those who want to walk less you're close to the subway and Grand Central isn't far away.

We stayed here in November 2013. The hotel is in a great location just minutes walking distance away from 5th, Grand Central and the Empire State Building. This was our first trip to NYC and I would highly recommend this hotel for service, location and price. The only down side is that the rooms are a little out dated and... More

Conveniently close to Grand Central and Rockefeller Center. Good service, helpful staff and clean rooms (some are dated, though). Hotel bar, restaurant and room service are pretty decent. A bit pricey, but worth the stay given the location and quality of service.

Stayed here from 26rh December 2013 until 2nd January 2014. Loved staying here would go again. Would not hesitate in recomending this hotel. Great location short walking distance to shops etc. Staff friendly and extremely helpful. If there was one thing to note it would be bathroom was small but it certainly wouldn't put me off staying here again.

I spent 5 weeks in the Barclay and had to move out for one day due to New York residency laws. Classic hotel, great service but diminishing due to staff leaving (hotel closing put off for 2 months). The rooms were comfortable, although tired, and the bathrooms were very small, even in the double room suites. Staff were always helpful... More

I stayed here a few years ago when I was still living in New York. My boyfriend was and still is living in Florida. We spent a romantic weekend here. The room was small side by very clean. The service and location was great. We had a really nice weekend! I would recommend this hotel.

Lovely hotel, great location,. The hotel is having a re fit this year so I imagine it's going to be even better. Will defiantly re visit. Very help full staff. Lovely rooms, a walk away from all the major sites, would definitely recommend the site seeing tour bus and boat.
