Ok, but not top level

Location is perfect, but my room was disappointing. Although I'm an Platin member the room was small and poorly equipped. The hall is not very inspiring. Breakfast is perfect - expensive but worth the money! I could spend hours with that breakfast. The fitness Center is also ok, but not top level. All in all I would look for another place next time. For that price I expect more! Collapse

Wow, beautiful refurbished hotel where the staff can't do enough From the minute we arrived they made us feel at ease and welcome We was up-graded and the room was lush. Spotlessly clean and well equipped Concierge Adrian had the knowledge of everything in NYC but if you want to know the best local haunts speak to Angel the door man. He and Anthony his sparing partner were second to none. Bad points, hotel bar and breakfast expensive all be it very good. Hotel not very high so don't expect a view of much Overall can't wait to go back, love it. Thanks to all the staff especially the house keeping who always get forgotten about as the place is spotless Collapse

We stayed three nights at the Intercontinental New York Barclay over New Years. It was our first time staying at this hotel and we picked the hotel because we had one free night. Everything about the hotel was lovely. We got to the hotel well before check-in time so we checked our bags until our room was ready. The check-in staff was very friendly and when they learned it was my birthday, they arranged for champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to be sent to the room. What a nice gesture! We got the King size room and the room was beautifully decorated and appointed but very comfortable. There are only positive things to say about this hotel. Here is what I really liked: • The hotel location is ideal – close to so much • The hotel layout is such that you don’t have to walk a ton just to get in or out of the hotel. • The elevators were efficient – we never waited long for a an elevator • Room and hotel décor was lovely and fresh. • When we were in our room, we never heard other guests in the hallways or slamming their doors. It was very quiet! • The bed was extremely comfortable – nice sheets and good pillows. • The windows in our room opened! I love opening the windows and hearing the sounds of the city! • Ample power outlets on BOTH sides of the bed • Fast wifi • New TV with a good selection of channels • There is a stocked refrigerator in the room which we didn’t use BUT they left a little space in the refrigerator where you can put your own items. Very clever. • The bathroom was my favorite and I’m convinced was designed by a woman. • Very large shower (elegant tile) with a step so ladies can shave their legs easily • Plenty of water pressure and hot water • The towels were thick and luxurious • The shower/bath products were top of the line • The hair blow dryer was powerful and not the cheapy kind you see in most hotels. As someone with long thick hair, this was a definite plus for me. We will DEFINITELY be back. Collapse

I stayed at the Intercontinental New York Barclay from 16th until 22nd December 2016 with my wife and 2 daughters. We originally booked the trip through British Airways Holidays and arrived at the hotel with a pre-paid voucher and booking reference. On arrival at approximately 11pm we were told by the check in staff that our room allocated only had a king size bed in it even though there were 4 of us staying. The check in staff spoke to the evening manager and upgraded us to a room with 2 double beds which was better for us. The room itself was spacious and very clean. One thing I did notice during our stay was that the walls are paper thin and we could here our neighbours in the rooms either side of us. The hotel was beautiful. The lobby area is lovely with marble walls and had a lovely Christmas Tree as its centrepiece. There was a childrens christmas play area also with christmas gift boxes and a ride on train set for the kids to play on. Having seen previous posts about costs we chose not to eat at the hotel but nearby are a good number of small restaurants and outlets to buy food and drinks. We had drinks in the bar area on our final evening and the for a beer, wine and 2 coca cola's the bill came to $45. Not cheap! On our final day the check out process was smooth and we even left our cases in a storage room and collected them later in the day as our flight home wasn't until the evening. On arrival home I received my credit card bill and was horrified to see I had been charged in excess of $988 by the hotel for my room which was pre-paid. I immediately looked online for email addresses and mailed the Hotel Manager and the General Manager but received no response. I tried different forms of contact and finally send a message via Facebook. I received notification that my matter was being dealt with and within 24 hours I received a telephone call from Francesca who is the Assistant Front Office Manager. My payment had been taken in error and was fully re-imbursed. Would I stay at the Intercontinental New York Barclay again? Definitely! The hotel is beautiful. The rooms are spacious. The staff are very attentive and friendly. The hotel is ideally situaed and although I had a small misfortune it was dealt with in a professional and courtious manner. :-) Collapse

Lovely place - they cannot do enough to help you. Fantastic service in the restaurant and the staff are very light hearted in their approach, this has no effect on their professionalism and they are super efficient at what they do
