Since first opening its doors in 1926, the InterContinental New York Barclay has welcomed countless guests to enjoy a luxurious residential-style experience in the heart of the city. Originally constructed as part of the Grand Central Terminal expansion, The Barclay became one of four notable railroad hotels built to service the well-heeled men and women travelling to New York City. Its convenient location, directly above the railroad tracks, permitted the hotel the unique distinction of having its own platform in the basement, ideal for the upscale rail traveler who occasionally arrived by private train car. In addition to its Midtown East location, the hotel made an immediate impact with tenants and critics alike for its characteristic atmosphere of comfort and elegant domesticity. From that moment, The Barclay began to write its history as the hotel of choice for those looking to take respite in this stately residential hotel of international prestige. Today, the InterContinental New York Barclay remains Manhattan’s preeminent luxury hotel after undergoing the most ambitious restoration in its history. Combining sophistication and contemporary design, while staying true to its original Federalist style details, The Barclay exudes confidence and warmth, delivering the same residential feel with modern comfort and flexibility introduced to the world in 1926.

Great location walkable to many iconic sights that Manhattan has to offer. Rooms are clean and warmly decorated. Easy access to the light rail and subway system. It's been nine months since I stayed here but was reminded to post a review after binge watching Homeland (a TV show in the US) . Several episodes were filmed here with the lobby ceiling being the most obvious. The downside is the poor service at the Gin Parlour bar. The hotel charges a daily fee which can be used as a credit at the bar but not enough to cover drinks for two. Did not appreciate the bar's mandatory 15% service chargel. Gratuity should be based on customer's satisfaction which typically range from 15%-20%. Felt the service is poor because of the guaranteed gratuity. The waitress had an attitude, and was hard to get any acknowledgement, smile, or any type of service. Aside from poor service at the bar, the remainder of the hotel staff were professional and things went smoothly.

The lobby, rooms, the bar, the gym and the entire experience one of the memorable stays of all times. Absolutely beautiful hotel. On my second visit, it was a surprise the front desk staff knew i stayed there before.

Friendly welcome by reception staff. All hotel staff we interacted with over the 4 days were super helpful, friendly and professional. Good breakfast . Very central location. Nice room, comfy bed ( very soft pillows, too soft for me but i'm sure if i asked they provide firmer pillows ) Room is on the small seize but it's New York. City... The walls are thin , you can actually hear conversations from neighbouring rooms, so be prepared for that. There are many bars and restaurants nearby.

This is our third stay at the InterContinental Barclay Hotel. We love it’s style, location and service. This time we booked a room with Club Intercontinental access. Compared with other Club Intercontinental Lounge facilities, this one is on the small side, with services limited when compared to the fantastic Lounges in Medellin, Hong Kong, or London. However, what is in offer is of good quality, and the stand out thing is the service from Paulette and the rest of the team. Always there to welcome you personally, making sure the lounge is well stocked, clean and tidy. Thank you to you all, it was a pleasure to meet you and thanks for great service at Club Intercontinental. David and Mike
