"Classy & comfortable"
We stayed 3 nights. Loved the room, very comfortable even though small. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The lobby area and front door area were also inviting. The decor was classy, but the staff weren't stuffy. Just a couple of negatives.Door entrance into the room was awkward because of an inserted closet. Door opening should have gone in opposite direction, almost bumped my eye on the lock a few times. Small counter space in the bathroom. Sometimes could overhear people talk next door. Great location! Convenient small grocery stores nearby. Fifth avenue stores around the corner. We walked almost everywhere.
"Amazing Hotel and Staff"
I stayed at the InterContinental NY Barclay for 5 nights and I everything was fabulous. The room was beautiful and the bed was extra comfortable. The hotel amenities are luxurious, especially the bath robe and the slippers; after the whole day walking around the city, the best part was arriving to the hotel room, take a hot shower and enfold yourself in those fluffy bath robe and slippers. I would also like to highlight the hotel breakfast, they have a large variety of food and everything is delicious, it's the perfect way to start your day in the city!
"Worst pillows ever"
Before staying I read a lot of the reviews. I stay in NYC once per year, but always seem to stay at the Waldorf. I was excited to try a new hotel that was recently renovated. I was shocked at how small the king rooms were. The rooms with two beds are a little bigger, but the beds are Full size, since really you couldn't go any bigger with the room size. Expect to be really cozy if you have a bed mate. I must stress that they have the worst pillows that I've ever encountered in a hotel. I travel all over the world and have had some serious pillow issues, but these are by far the worst. The three of us woke up every morning with incredible neck pain, even my 18 year old. Awful. They seem to inflate around your head. No fluffing required. They use king sized pillows on full sized beds, so there's some overlap that is just annoying when you've got someone next to you. A pillow menu would have been nice. The room is noisy with both thin walls and thin windows. Street noise was pretty loud, but neighbor noise was worse. You can hear every word, clearly. Due to horrible sleep during my stay, I gave them a 3. The hotel is beautiful, clean, and well maintained. The staff was helpful. The gin bar is quite nice. It's also a great location. Next year we will try another hotel.
"Great Deal in Midtown"
I was looking for a hotel for Presidents' Day weekend and found an insanely good deal for the InterContinental Barclay. After booking, I read some mixed reviews - however the negative ones seem to come from rewards members who are used to extra perks and service. If you're just looking for a nice, relaxing place to spend the night, the Barclay is a great choice. I arrived an hour before check-in and planned to check my bags, but my room was ready. My room was on the seventh floor and overlooked an uninspiring office block - the sheer curtains still let a fair amount of light in. There was little to no street noise. The recently renovations mean everything is pretty and new. Outlets could have been placed better. The closet had a decent amount of space and included a small safe (big enough for laptop and camera), luggage rack, ironing board and iron, and monogrammed robe and slippers. Loved the bathroom. It was clean and bright and had a great mirror with edge lighting. (I want one for my home now.) The little coffee maker alcove was nice too, though more cream and sugar could have been provided. Overall, one of the nicer hotels I've stayed in in New York, with one of the lowest price tags.
"Nice Hotel but Hard Beds"
This is a very nice hotel. Wonderful remodeling, spacious rooms and good service. I can't say it's not a good hotel. I expected a great nights sleep given the quality of the hotel but the beds are too hard and others felt the same (so it wasn't just me). The breakfast prices are outrageous (as are any other decent hotel in the area).
