InterContinental New York Barclay

InterContinental New York Barclay

A storied history and swoon-worthy redesign has the 702-room InterContinental New York Barclay right on track. Built in 1926 as one of Grand Central’s great railroad hotels (an old platform lies directly underneath), the new version added bold, contemporary touches while keeping its soul squarely rooted in the Jazz Age. Snag a purple-velvet wingback in the clubby Gin Parlour for pre-dinner Negronis before sliding over to a table for sophisticated, sustainable fare. The hotel’s perfectly central location makes for an easy stroll to Rockefeller Center, MoMA and Times Square.

Hotel Tip

Rule Midtown from the new two-bedroom Harold S. Vanderbilt Penthouse, which features its own fitness room, Vanderbilt family photos, and to-die-for views from its 1,300-square-foot private terrace.

We enjoyed the comfort of a lovely room, excellent breakfasts and Wine and snacks in the late afternoon. The Concierge was quite helpful and accommodating in helping us find our way around the city. We had a wonderful holiday.

NYC Holiday

We had an overall pleasant stay. Location is great. There is a separate registration for the Virtuoso guests. The lounge was pleasant- the breakfast ample. They even had some gluten free options, which was important as my husband has gluten allergy. The lounge staff quite accommodating. The hotel rooms were large by NYC standards. I would have preferred a larger bathroom- but it was adequate for the 3 nights. The concierge staff were almost all wonderful. There was one young lady who was quite rude though- which I have never experienced in a concierge. It was a busy time of year the hotel was very busy. We very much liked having the privacy offered to escape to the lounge, we would certainly return at a warmer time of year!

Wonderful! The club level benefits were outstanding, especially the breakfast and snacks throughout the day. We were traveling with two hungry teenagers, so this benefit was well used! Also, we requested connecting rooms, but it could not be guaranteed. We were pleased to find upon check-in that we were on the 15th floor with connecting rooms. It made our stay so much easier! Everyone at the hotel was very pleasant and helpful all week!
