I recently stayed at the InterContinental New York Barclay while visiting New York. The hotel was very clean and beautifully adorned. For a New York hotel the room was spacious, and the bathroom was somewhat small but not cramped. The bed was very comfortable and the room temperature was easy and quick to adjust. The internet was expensive (compared to... More

Found this Interconintental to be very deteriorated ... Every piece of furniture is scratched , bathroom smelled like urine everyday even after mentioning this to front desk , we found the ironing board every day left in the middle of the room and also our glasses never got even returned to the bathroom. Air conditioning wasn't on any of the... More

I just stayed here over the weekend, and had a pleasant experience. The room was big enough, certainly for a NYC hotel it was large, and clean, the bathroom was small, but also clean. Location was great, in walking distance of everything, I'd recommend going to the top of Rockefeller Center, which was just a few blocks away. Also, we... More

Overall the experience I had at the Intercon was great, I try to stay with their chain when I travel. Even though the hotel was starting its big renovation project and lacked several of the services they made up for it with customer service and attention to detail. The beds were extremely comfortable and they had blackout curtains which helps... More

Arrived and found out the hotel was due to close in 2 weeks for a 12 month refurbishment so they had removed the in room entertainment and mini bar without notifying us on booking or check in. Room was ok, needs the plans upgrade. Bathroom average and the bath plug did not drain unless you held open. Great location though... More

We researched countless hotels prior to leaving but so glad we picked this one. The hotel is in good location and ideal for what we wanted. Only a short walk to Grand Central where almost all lines can be accessed. It was off the main streets so was quiet but close enough to be within suitable walking distance to 5th... More

Stayed in this hotel a number of years ago and found it to be of very good standard. Most places of interest are within walking distance. Breakfast wasn't included in our rate but we enjoyed a deli very close to the hotel.

Used this hotel a couple of times for business trips. The rooms are great and the hotel is elegant if a little 'stuffy'. Reception is well managed if a little unwelcoming. Right in the centre of Manhattan so close to all the attractions. I've noted recently that online deals are making this hotel more attractive as a vacation destination and... More
