Recently spent six day's at the Intercontinental Barclay. On entering the foyer it's very impressive and felt light and roomy. Check-in was very straight forward, reception staff not the friendliest but efficient all the same. A decent size room maybe a little snug for a family of four two being teenagers. The furniture I felt was a little tired chipped and scratched. The beds were extremely comfortable. Bathroom was a little on the small size,the hairdryer was also located in it which made it difficult when four of us were trying to get ready in the morning. My advice would be to take a separate hairdryer with you. Another thing the room lacked phone sockets. I also found the air conditioning units annoying they were located outside the rooms on the floor where I was stayed, they were very noisy, this bothered me more at night when trying to sleep than traffic noise. Stayed in room 461. Rooms do provide a coffee machine with complimentary coffee but I wouldn't touch the mini bar, the prices were extortionate.
This hotel is in a great location, close to Grand Central Station, Fifth Avenue, The Rockefeller Centre and Time square which are all within easy walking distance.
I would stay here again simply for location.
