This hotel is located only a couple of blocks from the subway--a few blocks from 5th Avenue and Rockefeller Plaza. The beds were very comfy--we slept great every night. The staff were excellent as well--Tea Ferrari in concierge went out of her way to help me package some artwork I purchased to safely get it home.

This was a nice hotel. Clean and modern. Sometimes its the little things that draw your attention. Great location and the doorman, Angel was great. A few details worth noting: Tea drinkers are out of luck, none in the room. Bath robes need an upgrade and the climate control is in need of an upgrade as well.

The other half and I stayed here for a night this weekend when we were in town for the opera. We've stayed at the Intercontinental in Times Square several times and whilst nice, The Barclay is a much more beautiful property in a much more peaceful location. The refurbishment was a huge success as the lobby and guest rooms are...

I stayed here three years ago and although it was lovely, the staff were quite unpleasant to say the least. However, I booked again this year to bring my mum and we could not have had a better time. I was unaware that it had recently been upgraded but they've done a great job. Rooms are spotless and comfortable and...

We were lucky enough to stay at this beautiful hotel for 3 nights. From arrival to check out the service we received was flawless. The hotel is beautifully furnished with luxury furnishings and finishing touches. It was Valentine's Day while we visited and chocolate gifts were left in our room which was a lovely surprise. The staff are all very...

The only word to describe our visit is “outstanding”. From the moment we pulled up outside to the moment we left, we were blown away. The foyer is beautiful, with soft Sinatra tunes playing as you walk into the beautiful reception. We didn’t find a nicer hotel experience in all of Manhattan and felt particularly smug about how much nicer...

Great hotel, very confortable bedding, very nice people, and great concierge service. We slept well, that's the most important thing when you visit New-York. We definitely recommend this hotel that is very well located, closed to Time Square, the Rockfeller Center and some very nice places to eat.

My mother, aunt, family friend and myself stayed at this wonderful hotel for five nights in November 2016. Our trip was for sight seeing and shopping! NYC is not some where you travel too spend time in hotels you are out and about for hours daily! Many people said before our travels you don't care where you sleep as you...

I stayed for business. The hotel rooms were quite large for NYC. The hotel is beautiful and the service was excellent. Special thanks to Suzana. She is a concierge at the hotel and went out of her way to help me. Thank you Suzana.

Stayed for three nights on a birthday trip to NYC with my two teenage sons, booked The Barclay through BA holidays and what a great choice it turned out to be. Super rooms, all newly refurbished everything spotless and clean and everything works as it should! Great mid town location, thoroughly obliging staff, and the gin bar a real bonus!...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
