ottima struttura centralissima con stanze e bagni ben arredati e spazi comuni di gusto; servizio di congierge molto buonoComment of P. Paolo , Italy the 2017-01-24
Just a really nice hotel with comfy furnishings and super nice staff. Location is awesome at 48 and Park. Close to the subway, cabs always around, and a 15 min walk to most attractions (or same in cab). There IS tea in the room but it's in a Keurig cup so pp didn't know what it was. Coffee too. Very little storage room in fridge. Nightly turn down is a sweet touch. Did this on rewards, but would stay and pay. Have been to NYC maybe 4 or 5 times in about 6 months and would come here again.
"Nicely updated, great location and superb staff"
Was great going back to The Barclay after so many years and a completed renovation. Nice welcome, early check in and staff was on point with all the details of my reservations. Up to the room - Awesome and spotless. Bed was so comfortable, room was big for NY Standard and the bathroom and shower was awesome. Tons of outlets to ensure all my plug ins were charged. The cocktails at the lounge were awesome. I would have rated this overall hotel excellent but I could not understand why they would not have a pool and a real restaurant in the hotel except the Gin Lounge - that was shocking. Overall, I would certainly go back - you cant beat the location as well - great for walking all over and about in NYC!
"Great Hotel --Excellent Location "
This hotel is located only a couple of blocks from the subway--a few blocks from 5th Avenue and Rockefeller Plaza. The beds were very comfy--we slept great every night. The staff were excellent as well--Tea Ferrari in concierge went out of her way to help me package some artwork I purchased to safely get it home.
This was a nice hotel. Clean and modern. Sometimes its the little things that draw your attention. Great location and the doorman, Angel was great. A few details worth noting: Tea drinkers are out of luck, none in the room. Bath robes need an upgrade and the climate control is in need of an upgrade as well.
"Beautiful hotel in a fantastic location."
The other half and I stayed here for a night this weekend when we were in town for the opera. We've stayed at the Intercontinental in Times Square several times and whilst nice, The Barclay is a much more beautiful property in a much more peaceful location. The refurbishment was a huge success as the lobby and guest rooms are just stunning. There are a lot of modern touches without losing the historical atmosphere of an iconic hotel. The lobby is bright and open with luxe yet comfortable furnishings. We had an Executive King room which was tastefully decorated in cool greys with pops of gold. There was a classic black & white tiled foyer with a good sized walk-in closet off to the left and a beautifully appointed bathroom to the right [amazing duel-head shower with lots of space to move around]. The wall behind the TV was almost entirely covered with a lovely landscape mural that had an almost Oriental feel to it [though the scene depicted could have been located anywhere]. Everything you should expect in a 5-star hotel room was available [robe, slippers, sewing kit, shoe horn, Q-tips, cotton pads, etc.] along with free Keurig pods [coffee/decaf coffee/tea]. The only complaint I had was about the pillows as they were not comfortable at all [at least for me]. They felt almost inflated as if they were still wrapped in plastic [they weren't] and air could not escape when you laid on them. It felt like sleeping on a balloon or one of those blow-up airplane pillows. Luckily the Euro-sham was filled with goose down so I was able to sleep on that. I did not bother calling the reception desk and asking about alternatives as the Euro-sham worked for me but if you are staying for more than a night or two you may want to do so. Service was good although I did not receive anything for being an IHG Platinum Elite member and I always have at their other properties in the past. Location is wonderful and convenient to everything in midtown. Also, it is very easy to drive to [unlike the Times Sq location which is a mess to drive to] but we parked two blocks away for $42 overnight rather than the $75 the hotel charges. We'll surely be back.
