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.

We have been staying at Intercontinental Hotels since the 90’s. We’ve stayed in US ,Canada ,Europe and Asia. This was our first visit since the renovation. We had been staying at the Times Sq location. Check-in went smoothly. We were upgraded because of our membership status. We entered our room, to find the worst room we have ever had. When we called to ask to change our room, we were told nothing else was available.The room size was approximately 10 ft X 14 ft , it contained a king bed, 2 large dressers, closet with room for husbands clothing only. Had to put my large suitcase on a table. Distance between bed and dresser only allowed one person to walk. However, bathroom was redone and nicely appointed. Rooms here were always generously appointed in the past, but now just a shadow of it’s former life. If one wants a five star experience, it is not at this hotel. Disappointed with this hotel, will not be returning, anytime soon.

We stayed for 2 nights in mid November. We had a delightful stay thanks mostly to the courteous, friendly and generous staff. Special thanks to Jeff, Gabriel and Donna for taking special care of us during our stay. The hotel is in a great location, in excellent condition, rooms are spacious with high quality furnishings and decor. Beautiful lobby and facilities throughout the hotel.

When visiting New York we love staying at this classic hotel. The staff is always friendly and hospitable. Rooms are comfortable, clean, and understated. Room service is prompt and very good.

Great property in mid-town manhattan. I have stayed here twice for business during the summer. The location is great for getting to Grand Central, the staff is great, I love that they have free New York Times and Wall Street Journals every day, wonderful services. It's not a hip place and I wouldn't stay there if not for business. Walls are a bit then, hotel bar and the scene a bit stuffy and it seems like that the kind of place older people (myself included) stay in to be "safe".... but it works..
