Nothing much to say definitely it's worth it 👍 friendly and helpful stuff. We stayed there 2 years ago during super bowl in winter so it was really crowded. I would stay there again. After a long day in ny you need a comfortable bed to get ready for the next day. It's not that tall but 6th or 7th... More

Breakfast is good. We are staying here over the New Year and are very disappointed that no bar facility is available for residents who haven't booked the gala dinner. Poor show for a four star hotel. We were never told this or would have gone elsewhere.

Stayed here for conference next door at the Waldorf. Room was a decent size and comfortable. Good location and convenient. Friendly staff made the stay even better. Bathroom was really small though, but ok for NY standards. Will recommend if one can get a decent rate. Some dates in Dec can be really expensive, but that is true for all... More

Very nice hotel. Location was perfect. Staff was very nice. I had two deliveries at the hotel I was concerned about receiving, and there was no problem at all. The rooms are a little small, but lovely and clean. My only complaint would be that I could hear every word the person in the room next to me said....so, the... More

We stayed at the Barclay intercontinental in May 2014. Amazing hotel, right In the heart of midtown. It's a fantastic spot to be in. We spent four nights there a tip is to get a cab from the airport as the shuttle we booked took 4 hours to get to our hotel as they drop everyone off first. Definitely recommend... More

We informed that the bed sheet was not fully covered at the tail side, as in the attached picture, the first night. But it was still the same for the second and third night. The staff ignored our comment. Then we asked to speak to the manager and showed the picture to the manager. The manager was just fooling around... More

Good clean place in a central location for Manhattan. Reasonably priced also... I received a deal for the weekend so it was well worth it. The negative is that there isn't much of a restaurant but that shouldn't be a problem. Why would you want to eat at the hotel in NYC? I would stay again.

I have stayed here twice now and it is in my opinion the only place to stay when you come to New York! It is a gorgeous hotel with lovely staff, and is only a couple of blocks away from 5th avenue. The staff were professional and made you feel welcome and were always on hand to help with any... More

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.
