This is an absolutely beautiful hotel! The breakfast was the best I have had at a hotel. All food was very expensive, but it was also organic, so that was expected. For a nyc hotel it was also very spacious.

Took my wife to watch Jersey Boys in New York and we stayed at the Barclays, excellent Hotel, best room and great location. service, non plus ultra, if you know what I mean. Intercontinental knows how to treat you with class.

Was rather dubious booking online for a hotel in New York as been stung before with less than fortunate accommodations in the past, I need not have worried. Check in quick and efficient, lovely room and location perfect. Would book and stay again next time we are in New York.

Our trip of a lifetime to New York was made even better by being able to stay at the Barklay! From the moment we arrived we were treated like we were special guests and walking into the grand lobby we certainly felt very special. Our room was lovely and very clean and the bed was so soft and luxurious, just... More

Having visited New York before with family on a budget, this was a chance to do it business style. The hotel location was great, very close to the shopping areas and not too far from Times Square. The rooms were good, and reasonably quiet. The breakfast was good

We stayed here in August 2014 (it's taken me a long time to get around to my review!) and had the most amazing stay! The room was a deluxe double - we got an offer through Last Minute, and was much larger than we had anticipated for NYC. It was very luxurious - the bed was so big I forgot... More

I was disappointed to see the rooms have deteriorated, our bathroom had rust round the bath and a small hole in the sink. Minor things, but after raving about how lovely the hotel was to my partner, he failed to see how it was any better than anywhere else. The bed was amazing, so comfy and big enough we didn't...

First time ever in New York, friendly and welcoming staff. Although when we did arrive after a long journey the rooms were not ready we were able to safely leave our cases and get them later. It is a short walk to times square. Rooms were lovely and the beds were massive! Although not much of a view of the... More

Elegant hotel and professional staff! Love the location and the room is comfortable. Midtown east, you are walking distance to plenty of shops and restaurants. It's next to greats spas like Bliss and Guerlain spa at Waldorf.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
