Wonderful hotel. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was small but we managed. We stayed here during the UN meeting so the hotel was very busy. It must have been trying for the hotel staff. We had some noise in a room next to us for a couple of nights. Turns out it was the security for the UN delegates. Hopefully, our next visit will be quieter. Considering the conditions the hotel and staff did very well. We returned a few weeks later and it was much quieter. The second room was much the same as was the bathroom.
"Business and Pleasure"
Our room was very clean and comfortable. The bed was wonderful and the bath products smelled delicious. The room was hot and we weren't able to get it to cool off much during our 6 days there. That was the only negative.
"Great location and comfortable stay"
Spent 2 nights on business here and had a really enjoyable stay. I've stayed in a few hotels around midtown but will this is the best, good size rooms with coffee machines (which I need!) comfortable beds and friendly and attentive staff. My new go to hotel in NYC
"THIS IS A 31/2 STAR HOTEL."
I can't say this is an average New York hotel...it is "above average" but not "very good." There are definite pros and cons, which I will specify. If location to New York landmarks and Broadway is your priority, you couldn't do better. In walking distance to the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and even Broadway, which is on the West Side. It is a busy area with lots of office buildings and not far from Grand Central Station. I prefer to be a little more uptown where the pedestrian traffic is not as chaotic. The hotel has recently been refurbished...my room was small but well appointed, especially the bathroom which had a marble floor and fabulous shower. Unbeknownst to be me, it was Columbus Day weekend so the prices were ridiculously high, especially for the lack of service. I would think that a large hotel would have doormen that would help with the door, not just hanging around outside collecting tips for taxis. Someone to greet the customers would be a great idea instead of being admonished for not recognizing there was a line... one person is a line' I was happy to finally get to my room which was clean and comfortable, including the bed, but to discover that Wifi was $15 /day was a major disappointment. I haven't been in a hotel in the last three years where the Wifi wasn't free, including Europe. I checked out after two days because I was paying too much for too little. A few lessons in hospitality could change the whole flavor of the hotel.
"Modern hotel, great location, good for business trips"
I stayed at the Barclay InterContinental for a week, whilst travelling on business. The hotel was clean and the room was comfortable and quiet. The staff were mostly attentive, aside from a single poor experience at dinner (additionally, the pasta dish was quite poor, but I will not judge the hotel based on one meal). The gym is decent, with a small selection of free weights, and some resistance and cardio machines. I'd rate it slightly better than the nearby Grand Hyatt, if only for slightly less footfall moving through the hotel. Aside from that, the concepts are quite similar for both of these conference-friendly hotels.
