Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PauloM Relax and trust
I have been a frequente guest in this hotel for almost 20 years. It is always a good experience. It has been my reliable base in New York.
Breakfast is excellent and basically composed by organic items. All staff is consistently excellent. All services work and you can really relax.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Andmeme Incredible disrespected staff
Location of this Hotel is good, the rooms are old but more or less OK, bathroom is out of date.
The most terrible thing is impolite staff with absolutely no respect for the guests. For every small item we had to ask for and should normally be done automatically. Even trowing down the horn when asking for service etc.
Really Intercontinental unworthy personal, just terrible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaxJ3422 Wonderful, Historic, EXTREMELY Comfortable Hotel!
Of course everybody has heard of the Barclay before, in movies, TV shows, etc... and I expected that it would be a nice, nostalgic 1920s-style hotel with some wear & tear. I was blown away by the walk-in closet, extremely clean room, and MOST OF ALL the extraordinarily comfortable bedding... It is the best sleep I've had in years. This is definitley be a hotel choice of mine in NY for the future. Anybody know if IC sells this bedding anywhere?
Tip the bellmen well, they work hard. Plus, you might make a friend or two with them!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lf0369 Great service & location
The family had a great stay. Hotel was in a great location and staff were very friendly and helpful.
The only thing we were disappointed in was the cost of the Wi-Fi in the rooms and that they didn't offer free Wi-Fi in the lobby/reception area as some hotels now offer that. I think that would be a big customer service PLUS for the guests.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DaBaums Classic NYC Midtown Hotel w large suites
Barclays screams traditional NYC Midtown luxury hotel; not for the fashion/trendy forward crowd but a great location with ample room size. We love the large one bedroom suites with living rooms with two side window bedroom on the "corners." Only pet peeve is their water flow so constricted with the flow restrictor installed on the shower that it's an effort to stay wet. As an ambassador, be forewarned no concierge level or free breakfast/snack area within this hotel like many European intercontinental hotels. Still, a grand old dame with excellent east side Midtown location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cherie4 Amazing Experience
My husband and I just spent 6 wonderful nights at the New York Barclay. When we first arrived we were met curbside by Angel who was the most wonderful doorman I have ever encountered. He then introduced us to his co workers David and Mike. There was never a time when we left or returned that they did not address us by name and we felt like we had been friends forever. I do so miss you guys! After the first night we were advised that we would need to change rooms due to some pipe or plumbing issues they needed to work on. That was fine-but the change of rooms was totally unexpected and who could complain. THE PRESIDENTIAL SUITE!!!! I am not sure how I will handle the normal room again on our next visit. Then when we left (so sad) we were in our car service halfway to the airport and my husband had left our car keys in the room safe. We called the hotel and they sent Ramon out by taxi to bring us our keys before our flight left. Okay, maybe our experience was over the top, but I can't imagine anyone not having a great time at the Barclay!!!! See you soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JustinSunglasses That great experience you expect to get at the Intercon....
The Intercontinental Barclay gets it right. From a staff that is knowledgable and courteous, to rooms that are well above Manhattan size and comfort standards, the experience end to end was a great one.
