Edit: This location is closed and under renovation. Picked up a last minute deal the week before Christmas. Prime location, close to Grand Central, 5th Ave shopping and Rockefeller Center. Despite it being busy due to the holiday crowds, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, especially the Front Desk/Check-In and the Concierge. There was a beautifully decorated front lobby...

I booked this hotel as part of a holiday deal with British Airways following good reviews and I am pleased to say it lived up to expectations. Location is good, Times Square and Central Park are about 10-15 minute walk. Like all NYC hotels its noisy so request an internal facing room, there are no good views to be had... More

We stayed here with two friends as part of a 30th birthday trip. The hotel was clean and well kept, the room was spacious compared to other hotels we looked at. The staff were friendly and very helpful - they even called the empire state building to see what the visibility was like on our last night as it was... More

Our stay was actually back in 2012. We've spend 11 nights here during our honeymoon. It's been our first time in New York and we wanted a place very central and close to everything. And the hotel certainly fitted the bill perfectly. Happy to recommend it to others. There was nothing wrong with the stay. Room was spacious and very... More

Our stay was actually in September 2011. This hotel went above and beyond to exceed our expectations. It was our first time in New York. It is located near to anything you need and the rooms were much larger than I expected in New York.

I often come to this hotel for business trips. It's a great location and the hotel itself has a lot of history. The rooms though require extensive renovations. I believe they are currently updating their facilities so let's hope the updates are better and in line with modern times. The bell service staff are friendly and helpful.

We had an excellent stay at the Barclay. Hotel location is very good and we felt safe. Check in was professional and easy. The entrance hall and lobby were impressive wih a very beautiful classic decoration, which gave the hotel a rather distinct charactericterization. I enjoy "personality" in places I go such as hotels, restaurants and even hostels, eventually. And... More

We love everything about the Barclay! Located a block from Grand Central, within walking distance of EVERYTHING, but out of the craziness of Times Square. Although it is being remodeled, we always loved the beauty of the lobby and rooms and the restaurant/bar is great. Fabulous martinis!! Can't wait to see the renovations!

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.
