Editorial review:

Intercontinental The Barclay New York is a large business oriented luxury hotel with 600 sleeping rooms in the tradition of New York’s grand hotels. The location is also great for tourists and it is conveniently located within a short walk of Grand Central Station. The sleeping rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The lobby is visually stunning and expansive. The hotel restaurant cuisine is not spectacular but there are more than enough great eating spots in the immediate area to keep you well fed for quite a while.

  • Very central, great location, very elegant hotel and the elevators were quick and the lobby was very nice. Staff had good attitudes, bed was huge and the continental breakfast was just outstanding.

    Not worth the price, poor service and my room faced to 48th and the traffic noise was very loud all night. Coffee facilities were limited.

  • Location and services was perfect, the hotel was extremely comfortable and clean and the staff were welcoming. At the price i paid was just acceptable, the lobby was very pleasant and peter, at the front desk, was helpful, professional. The rooms were well appointed, breakfast was excellent and the facilities were fine.

    Whatever was, this place exceeded my worst expectations, not Worth the Money and unfriendly personnel at reception. Bathrooms were not very spacious.

  • Perfect location in Manhattan, grand Central Station and the decor of this hotel is wonderful and the rooms were well appointed. Good price and people very nice that work there, the lobby is large. The service at the barclay is fantastic, bathroom is adequate and not a bad choice for our first trip to New York.

    The business center is too expensive, quality of the breakfast should be much better and internet pricing is far to high and limit to 2 devices proves to be painful for all.

  • The location was fabulous and 4 night stay at the barclay during middle of March was fine. The staff were very friendly, in room dining was very good.

    From the money the hotel is raking in , i don't think free internet & monitor access is unreasonable, the bathroom is old and tiny, and the water regulation in the shower can be tricky.

  • The location was superb and the room itself was a decent size for a NY hotel. Staff were very helpful, the bathroom was also very small, dirty, and the grout in the tile had not been cleaned well.

    No hot water at all, breakfast including is most comfortable like in europe.

  • The location is excellent and the reception stuff made us feel quite welcome. The lobby is beautiful, especially the huge flower arrangement, just needs a bit of updating perhaps and the staff needs to perk up a bit, the bathroom is very small, the room could be bigger as well.

    The hotel was awful and first of all, guest service was not nice I checked in. The shower curtain was dirty.

  • The location was very good and the concierge was helpful and the hotel was very close to heart of NYC. Free wifi in the lobby was a bonus, service staff were very courteous and efficient, extremely comfortable bed and the room size was excellent. The organic food menu was great.
