We stayed in the middle of a heat wave - 95f/35c - but the Barclay lobby always greeted us with a cool wall of air when we returned from a day in the city. Our family, 2 adults and 3 kids under 12, were well looked after by the team at the Barclay during our 6 night stay. Our interconnecting... More

Love the new Intercontinental Barclay, the new look is amazing by keeping it classy and sophisticate. rooms are freshly done, great art work and the bathrooms have great lighting as well. I've stayed there for over 3weeks, and the service was always on point, from the front desk, concierge, bell staff, bar lounge, room service and housekeeping. Location is great... More

My company's NY offices are right around the corner, so this is a very convenient option. It was still closed for renos the last time I was in town, and so this was my first opportunity to stay there. I admit I was a bit apprehensive. Colleagues didn't have glowing things to say, and the reviews weren't top notch either....but... More

The Intercontinental Barclay Hotel in New York, a long-standing institution in mid-town Manhattan, has undergone substantial renovation over the past year. The lobby has a new face that is befitting a Broadway location than the Park Avenue. It is done in poor taste and without the charm that characterized its old lobby. The rooms have been redone and redecorated adequately... More

I travel to NYC all the time and couldn't wait to return to the hotel and experience the restored product. This hotel is absolutely fantastic... best location... top amenities... staff were so inviting... A lady called Kayla from the Sales department even escorted me to my room from the elevator one evening out of true kindness - top service!

Very hard working, accommodating and cordial staff. Beautiful lobby, nice rooms great location. We had a perfect stay as it was close to everything you'd want to do in the city. It is also close to the subway enabling easy access to other neighborhoods in the city. Perfect

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.
