The Intercontinental Barclay is in a class within itself. From the moment you grace it’s doors there is elegant music playing giving you that NYC feel immediately. The lobby is decorated with
beautiful arrangements , and the marble and gold touches just illuminated the space. Check In was elegant and swift. Although my room wasn’t ready yet , I was allowed to store my luggage for free. The wait was t long st all and there were so many historical sights to see within the area that I used my one hour wait time perfectly. Upon final check in they honored that I was an IHG member and allotted me free WiFi and 1 pm check out. The room itself was perfect. The executive King room came with a beautiful all white marble bathroom with lovely amenities The room itself is a bit small but larger than most in nyc The painted wall was so French inspired and elegant. The bed. Omg the bed is heavenly !!!! I had the deepest sleep on that super comfortable King sized bed. The Linen is superb There is a gin bar in the lobby serving exquisite wine and tasty cheese cake. All in all this was a very elegant stay and extremely perfect. I couldn’t have asked for better.
The location is chic and close to all the swanky parts of Nyc. It is also a 5 minute walk to Grand central station either above or below ground as there is an entrance to the walk way right next to the hotel. Being in between Park and Lexington meant that you are in a safe and elegant part of the city. There are coffee shops and restaurants all around you. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. [Less]
