"Feels Like Home, just a wee bit smaller!"
Lovely, classy room, even with its small size, it was very well done - the nice gallery wall above bed, mural on tv wall, comfy bed with great bedding. They should have a gift shop and sell those framed prints!!! Or make them available on line! Make sure you understand the "double" rooms are double/full beds and NOT Queens. Two children may fit in one bed, but would not want to share with another adult! We were on 15th floor, the top floor except for Penthouse, and unless we walked to window to change view only had view of other guest windows. The bathroom was small but quite functional. Definitely prefer their stall shower to a tub for showering. Great room and location for the price.
"Very well located, recently renovated classic hotel"
Our first visit to this hotel since its renovation, though we had stayed many times in past years. The lobby is modern and stunning. The standard guest rooms remain rather small with tiny closets and bathrooms but up to date and comfortable. Many longtime staff remain which is excellent. Although the hotel is very busy the service is seamless. The Club is very good and well worth the extra charge. We especially compliment the Guest Relations person, AnnMara and the concierge, Mustapha.
"Great Week - Excellent Choice for NYC"
Hotel was an excellent choice for the City and provided a safe haven from the noise and frantic pace of life. Excellent beds, quiet room on high floor. Close to metro, could not have been better, over our 6 night stay. Gin parlour is like a scene from Cunard. The entertainment was sublime - great female jazz singer with quartet. I would chose this hotel again without hesitation. But watch out for the high priced bars on Lexington where ping and ding food is served. Urban space was great family eatery by Grand Central.
We recently had a weekend stay at this hotel, and loved it. Location, decor, the lobby, staff friendliness-wonderful. To sum up why I am giving this property the highest rating is this: Upon entering our room (1239), my husband asked "Are we the first people to stay in this room'" It was spotless! Truthfully, I have never seen such pride taken by housekeeping to keep their rooms (& bathroom!!) gleaming. Shoutout to the housekeeping staff at the Intercontinental Barclay-it was a true oasis in the midst of a whirlwind trip.
We were in New York for a long weekend to celebrate daughter's birthday. Check in would have been hassle free, but our reservations were not in the system (maybe our fault') but gentleman at desk was very patient and eventually we were given the two required rooms. It appeared the hotel was very busy, so I think we lucked out. Rooms were very clean and offered what was needed to make you comfortable. Bathroom very clean with the extras you also expect in better hotels. One room had a city view and the other not, but since we were there very little, it was not a big deal. Service from staff very pleasant. Hotel seems convenient to walking sights and restaurants. Hotel is situated on very busy street, as is everything, in New York. '
