So impressed with this beautiful hotel! We went to NYC for the first time last month and we were blown away by the impeccable sevice and beauty of this hotel. We arrived at 10am tired from NZ expecting to check in at only 4pm. Arthur at front desk welcomed us with the most amazing friendly attitude and told us our... More

The hotel was decent, a good location and a nice room. However the bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on. I didn't sleep all week and would wake up with hip pain, back pain. The mattress felt like a very low quality mattress. For this reason alone I would never stay at this hotel again. It... More

The Barclay hosted us for my birthday June 2016 for a very memorable stay in Room 1208. Upon entering our room, I was surprised by an INCREDIBLY thoughtful Red Velvet Cake (my favorite) and a beautiful bottle of Tattinger. Thanks so much guys! Our room--bright, and airy-- was beautifully furnished; it was just like out of AD magazine. Our bed... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel. It was very good. The location is close Grand Central and has many facilities close by. The room was a reasonable size. It is not the cheapest option, but resonance value considering the location and level of service. I was happily surprised with the free shoe shine service. It made sure that I... More

Executive king room was large for NYC standards. Nicely refurbished with old New York elegance. Staff was formal and professional. Ambassador membership recognized with one category upgrade. Great sound insulation from street and neighbor noise. Very comfortable.

Stayed for one night on Saturday, came in a couple hours before check in and inquired if it was possible to check-in early, her answer was a definite no, not let me check and just at least pretend to look on computer.

There is nothing more purifying and regenerating than a Sunday lunch and a stroll through a museum. I recently started our Sunday at the Gin Parlor at the Intercontinental. A superb lunch, wonderful service and an easy atmosphere. Seamless and no effort on my part. I'll do this again! Steven B

The property has been recently renovated so the rooms have a very new feel to them. The bathrooms are nice and a good size for NY standards. The beds are comfortable although the pillows were not particularly good quality. The gym was disappointingly small for the size of the hotel and the queues at the front desk to check-in and...

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.
