New York Barclay

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 562 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fitness center is lacking - too little equiptment There was nothing that stands out about my stay other than the fact that the staff were distinctly "luke warm" and the fitness center is really lacking - for a luxury hotel, I expected a lot more equiptment since at 7am there were more people that available bikes and running machines. Will not be hurrying back. 26 January 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceptional Service I stayed at the Barclay Intercontinental for 3 nights celebrating my mothers 50th Birthday. The staff were extremely friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. Christian in concierge helped me plan a whole weekend full of tours and even called a nice restaurant for us and made reservations. The staff at the this hotel, from the cleaners to the front staff, to then servers at the bar and restaurant downstairs were exceptional! A job well done. The hotel is as great as it is due to the staff they have. The continental breakfast was well worth thee additional charge- they had a WIDE selection to choose from. The hotel is a bit older and you must appreciate the natural older beauty of the rooms. Very elegant hotel. 25 January 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Choice The Barclay is a wonderful hotel.The staff were so pleasant and helpful.The rooms are great also.The hotel is in a perfect location for access to the entire city.The hotel is the perfect place to stay in Manhattan! 25 January 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As Expected Great Service As expected any trip to NYC begins with arranging a hotel room at your fine hotel. Coming with a pet was an addition and your staff were so welcoming and hospitable it made the trip easier. Can't say enough good things about your hotel. 24 January 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor nights sleep in noisy uncomfortable hotel Sadly placed on top floor inbetween two rooms where we could hear every flush of the loo and general use of the bathroom. Could not have had a worse nights sleep that we did. Added to this, we could hear a lot of street noise early the next morning. Whilst staff seem fairly friendly and location of the hotel is great, this hotel is in desperate need of an upgrade. Stay here if the location is what you need, but make sure you take ear plugs. 21 January 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poorly maintained, dirty I used to stay at this property, on occasional trips to NYC, since the '80s, but have not stayed here for the past several. The locations on Park ave, near Grand Central, is great, and rooms are large for NYC. However, the rooms are not well maintained. I noticed the carpet was dirty (popcorn, plastic knife, candy wrapper around base of bed, somewhat hidden by bed skirts) when we checked in, and this stuff was still there upon checkout 4 days later. The wall light did not work, and I reported this to the housekeeper for 2 days, then then font desk, then the engineer. It still did not work by the time we checked out. On the 2nd day, the toilet flush failed, and water would not stop. I reported to the front desk around noon, then left for the day. Upon return at 10pm, I flushed the toilet and the water would not stop again. The engineer came up, after a call to the front desk, and got it fixed. I reminded him about the wall light, and told him to get it done the next day since it was bedtime. It never got fixed. It is really disappointing IHG has allowed this fine property to deteriorate with such poor maintenance. There are many alternative hotels in NYC, and management should be more attentive to basic things like cleanliness and maintenance. 21 January 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TV filming I love this hotel and the experience is always great. However, the filming of a television show while we were there was disrupting, inconvenient and at times intrusive. If the hotel is going to have these events in the future, guests should at the very least be given some compensation. 19 January 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel is just OK. There are much better hotels in the area. The Intercontinental New York Barclay is an older first class hotel in east, midtown Manhattan. I have stayed there a total of three times. Each of those times I have gotten a great price. I have stayed in the superior category room which is small and a deluxe room that was quite large. Whatever category, the rooms have everything a first class hotel usually has - wide screen flat tv, comfortable beds and minibar. My last stay the room seemed to have new carpet and drapes and I will say my king featherbed was fantastic. The bathroom was tiny, but that is just part of staying in an older hotel. I was surprised that my room had no robes, extra pillows, or extra blankets. I am giving the hotel a poor rating because of my last visit. The TV show "Person of Interest" was being filmed and the cast and crew completely took over the hotel. The Barclay staff seemed totally unprepared for the filming as the lobby was chaos for 2 days. One couldn't even get near the front desk and the restaurant and bar were closed. The people filming were very rude to the hotel guests. It was like it took the hotel by surprise, but no good hotel would ever let their guests be treated like I was treated. It took three tries to get a manager to talk to me. The Barclay totally dropped the ball. I was made to feel very unwelcome, and no hotel guest wants that. In all fairness, the hotel did give me some extra Priority Club points for my troubles, and the other times I have stayed at the hotel when there was no filming were fine. The hotel is fine but there are many better hotels within blocks. I would stay here only if you get a great rate. 19 January 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfort and a bargain too This is an outstanding property in a great location. The room rates were unusually low for the quality received. 18 January 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fair value for the money Fair value for the money. In-room environment needs to be renovated. 18 January 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great location and coomfortable place to stay All in all a nice stay. I was only there over night but am looking forward to returning. 16 January 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dubble upgrade and late check out as Ambassador member, I was supposed to have only one room upgrade. But the staff provide us room upgrade for 2 rooms 8me and my parents), and also dubble late check out at 18.00 (as Ambbassador it is usually 16.00) 12 January 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Needs Updating to be 5-Star 1. Very good service at Front Desk, Ambassador Desk, Business Center, porters and doormen and excellent housekeepping. 2. Good food and very good service; waiters are well trained and have been with the hotel for many years. 3. Comfortable beds and good pillows 4. Small bathrooms! Not very well lit; outdated showerheads. 11 January 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good Location but not much else...... I had the opportunity to stay in New York in January 2013, I selected the Intercontinental Barclay, as I wanted a location in this area. Upon arrival I was checked in efficiently, the door man looked after my luggage, and it was promptly delivered to my room. When I checked in I was told that as I was a platinum ambassador my room had been reserved and pre-allocated, which gave me the impression care and attention had been given to my room. The room was not upgraded (but this is not guaranteed, as hotels can be busy, and its a bonus when it happens not expected), it was located on a low floor and was easy to hear the noise from the loading bay below through the early hours of the morning. I needed to plug the clock / ipod into the power outlet, which for some reason was not plugged in, when I looked behind the bedside table, the amount of dust there was unacceptable, it was obvious that under the bed, and behind counters had not been cleaned in quiet some time. The desk chair was broken the arms coming out of the joinery that held them to the chair. No further recognition of platinum/ambassador benefits. When I checked out I used the ambassador guest relations desk, and the guest services manager asked me if I had any thing from the mini bar, I clearly stated that I only had 1 x orange juice, and she looked at her screen and confirmed that the only charges on my bill were room and taxes, plus the orange juice. I was happy with her explanation and did not bother to open the envelope as I had confidence she would not intentionally mislead me. When I arrived at my next destination Chicago, I happen to check my bill and found that $18 had been charged to my bill for an orange juice. I rang the hotel several times, and received the "run around" after this I asked to specifically speak with the guest relations ambassador desk in the hotel lobby. The staff member confirmed that she would look into it and took my email to confirm the reversal of the incorrect charges. A week later and no response from the hotel. I will note that when I checked out, I stayed that night at the Intercontinental Chicago, returned to New York the next day and Stayed at the Intercontinental Times Square for the remainder of the week, both of these properties were exceptional. My recommendation when in New York, stay at the Times Square location the property is modern, clean and recognition of Ambassador/Priority Status is simple "they do" welcome letter, free Wifi, upgraded room, nothing was too much trouble, the room immaculate, concierge great, front desk outstanding. Had I not had such a positive experience at the Times Square property I would be staying at another hotel chain in the future when in New York. 11 January 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location, good clean room, easy check-in, check-out. Enjoyed our stay, however, disappointed there is no free wi-fi - when every corner coffee shop offers it, why couldn't this hotel? Also, bed was not as comfortable as I would have liked. Other than these two quibbles, overall experience was quite good. 08 January 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Breakfast Absolutely the best breakfast buffet in New York Outsanding quality and selection 08 January 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceptional Service. A fantastic visit to the "BIG APPLE" coupled with a superb stay at THE NEW YORK BARCLAY HOTEL. The staff were EXCEPTIONAL and offered EXCEPTIONAL service. The Chef Concierge deserves a special mention due to his excellent knowledge of New York and his friendly, helpful demeanor. Overall: the hotel was brilliant and we hope to return there in the very near future - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! 08 January 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Average accommodation Horrible bathroom condition Attitude of the staff that also at Ambassador Desk what more to write then this . 07 January 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made for a Happy New yr Could not say more about the whole overall experience,, and the Hotel was the perfect fit , from Location, to service. Will be part of our next visit to the Big Apple, Lorena and Phil 07 January 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great service, property and near of everything Great service, property and near of everything. I recommended this hotel to stay in New York. If I come back, I choose this hotel again. 07 January 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Barclay location and value both very good The Barclay does what iit says; good value, great location. Rooms dated and not quite I/C standard but staff good, approachable and helpful. 06 January 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service Our family arrived early around 11 and were allowed to check-in which made the stay much easier. Thank you. 03 January 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by room in general We have stayed at this hotel several times, but our experience was not as great as we have had in the past. After checking in to what I thought was an upgraded room, was ok, but not great. The bathroom in particular was challenging. the vanity mirror mounted on the wall came loose and hit my daughter in the head. the toilet paper was mounted behind the toilet seat, and was challenging to get to. Hot water took quite some time to get, and after calling the desk, we were told to let it run for 10-15 minutes. We did not spend a lot of time in the room, but TV channels were limited. We would stay again, but hopefully in a better configured space. 03 January 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great warm welcome and helpful staff We have just returned from our vacation at this hotel and we had a great time. We were greeted by a choir singing Christmas carols in the hotel lobby when we arrived and it really was a magical feeling. I had been concerned about our accommodation as we were arriving in New York after a 14 hour flight . I had contacted Leslie at the Ambassador desk in the hotel and when we arrived she had pre checked our party so we went straight to the room. In addition to this she had made sure that our room was big enough for all of us to stay in comfort , Thank you Leslie. It is worth paying the extra for the breakfast in this hotel but I would recommend that you get there early as it is quite busy in the morning and the staff are kept occupied . Despite the busy environment our waiter Fernando went the extra mile every morning to ensure that we were looked after very well and the children were entertained by his great table manner. New York is a magical place at Christmas but the accommodation can make or break a vacation , I would not stay in any other hotel but the Barclay should I find myself in New York again. Great Rooms ! Great Staff ! Good food (bit pricey) Very Knowledgable concierge ! 02 January 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clean room and comfortable bed. Enjoyed staying at this hotel. Has a nice and peaceful atmosphere. Very clean. Kind, friendly and efficient staff. Will definately stay here again. I highly recommend this hotel. 02 January 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superior staff at a great hotel! I stay frequently at the Intercontinental Barclay. I like the smaller size this hotel is compared to a few of the very large hotels nearby. Rooms are very good. However, what stands out at this hotel is the top level service. Front desk personnel are very friendly and gracious. The guest relations staff, especially Leslie and Ann Mara, are extremely helpful and very pleasant to work with. This hotel is a must stay in NYC! 20 December 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed at NY Barclay Hotel This would be my first time to give a hotel review in my life since I had no choice but to say something about NY Barclay Hotel. Last November, my assistant mistakenly made two different reservations at New York Barclay Hotel for several consecutive days. When I checked in the hotel, I asked one of receptionists to combine those two reservations into one for my convenience. But he refused to do so for some reasons, which I wasn’t able to accept at all. More surprisingly, they didn’t notice I booked the hotel with an ambassador membership. Although they upgraded the room, the hotel has never provided any complimentary fruit and water later on, which I’m supposed to get those as an ambassador member. Since this is my first trip with an ambassador membership, I was disappointed at their lower-than-expected service. To make things worse, the hotel gave only one PCR Bonus Points out of two different reservations. Going forward, I decided not to stay at New York Barclay Hotel. Also, I don’t really know whether to renew my ambassador membership in the future. 18 December 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by beware price variance in daily rate i booked for two nights at the hotel, and the price was different on friday and saturday. this was previously unknown to me but the front desk person insisted that this was the case. i don't think the price should vary on friday vs. saturday and the price should be consistent, as this is what the customer expects for two weekend dates of friday and saturday. 07 December 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of Valuable points Had to be in City for personal reasons and the Intercontinental Times Square had no reward nights avaliable so I booked the Barclay using 50000 points. I should have stayed at the Holiday Inn on 57th Street for 25000 PTS. Was not even reckonized as an Ambassador at check in. No room upgrade. Floor I was in was under construction and was not notified till I got to room and saw a small sign in the corridor. Very noisy. I have stayed at many Intercontinental Properties in the last few months on Business Travel and was treated like a King ( Mostly in Asia ). I would send this entire staff to the Intercontinental Coex in Seoul, South Korea to learn how to treat an Ambassador member. I will not stay at the Barclay again till I hear there have been major changes 07 December 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleasantly Surprised Could not say anything bad about this hotel: great location, friendly staff, comfortable beds and bartender makes great drinks! Would definitely stay again!! 07 December 2012
