I have been staying here for 3 weeks every year in past 10 years. Love the location - not as busy and noisy but only few blocks from everything... Central Park, Grand Central, a lot of good restaurants, Madison and 5.th Ave. shopping, museums - all walking distance. Rooms are a bit old but well maintained. Overall, a place I... More

I stayed at the InterContinental Barclay a few months back. They did a good job of making sure we knew they were eliminating services due to an approaching shut down and complete renovation. The hotel is older (including furnishings) but it has a lot of charm and is in a great location! I look forward to staying once the renovation... More

Booked directly as we've always done. Despite upcoming major renovation, we were both still quite comfortable. The renovation is timely - well-needed because it's no longer pristine. The reception and concierge were friendly and attentive as they have always been. Always nice when staff remembers you and calls you by name! We'll be going back when renovations are done. I... More

We enjoyed the hotel's staff and the location, but much about the property was dated. As Platinum Ambassadors, we enjoyed special treatment and upgrades, but the lack of updated amenities was a bit too obvious for the Intercontinental Brand. Unfortunately, this made the experience only average, when we are used to above average and excellent experiences at IHG properties.

Average for the InterContinental brand. If you come for luxury you might be disappointed. OK, it is close to the Grand Central Station. Conveniently-located. But quite dark and quiet at night if you travelled solo like me, perhaps not the best option. Room was dated. I mean REALLY DATED BATHROOM. Literally with paint falling off. What a disgrace to an...

Booked through Priceline, so wasn't expecting too much, but the hotel is about to go through a major renovation. Room was comfortable, but shows its age. Front desk was surprisingly inattentive (my experience at other InterContinentals has always been excellent). Once renovated, I would expect this would be a great place to stay in the heart of the city.

My partner and I visited New York for the first time this year. We booked through Expedia and decided that we wouldn't worry too much about the hotel, we'd be doing so much that it wouldn't be the worst thing if we weren't in the lap of luxury. The deal we got happened to place us in the 4 star... More

My partner and I were visiting New York for Christmas and NYE from Australia! The hotel was beautiful, had a great atmosphere and the best breakfast I have ever had. Our waiter 'julio' was so accommodating to the fact I'm allergic to gluten. After the first morning, he had my special toast all ready waiting for me for the following... More

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.
