Verified Reviews of Intercontinental New York Barclay

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"The Hotel Was Closed But Took Our Reservation and Our Money."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I booked this hotel on on 3/21. They took a non refundable entire balance of the room rate. We arrived at the hotel on Saturday April 10th for a two night stay. The hotel was closed due to COVID and has been for sometime and not due to open until May. Why would a booking be confirmed by both parties and the Barclay. I now have to fight with for a full refund. It ruined our weekend in New York. First, never use for any hotel bookings. I consider them thieves.

Property Description

Since first opening its doors in 1926, the InterContinental New York Barclay has welcomed countless guests to enjoy a luxurious residential-style experience in the heart of the city. Originally constructed as part of the Grand Central Terminal expansion, The Barclay became one of four notable railroad hotels built to service the well-heeled men and women travelling to New York City. Its convenient location, directly above the railroad tracks, permitted the hotel the unique distinction of having its own platform in the basement, ideal for the upscale rail traveler who occasionally arrived by private train car. In addition to its Midtown East location, the hotel made an immediate impact with tenants and critics alike for its characteristic atmosphere of comfort and elegant domesticity. From that moment, The Barclay began to write its history as the hotel of choice for those looking to take respite in this stately residential hotel of international prestige. Today, the InterContinental New York Barclay remains Manhattan's preeminent luxury hotel after undergoing the most ambitious restoration in its history. Combining sophistication and contemporary design, while staying true to its original Federalist style details, The Barclay exudes confidence and warmth, delivering the same residential feel with modern comfort and flexibility introduced to the world in 1926. Located in Midtown, at 48th Street, between Park Avenue & Lexington Avenues, we compete with upper 4 Star and 5 Star Luxury properties in the dynamic city of New York. In fact, against notable 5 Diamond rated competition, we have again been awarded the distinction of “North America's Leading Business Hotel” for our third consecutive year. Services and Amenities at the InterContinental The Barclay New York include:o24 Hour, Business Centero24 Hour Room Service, Full Menu o24 Hour Fitness Centero15,000+ Square Feet Of Meeting Space including a Grand Ballroom, Junior Ballroom, and break-out spaceoHigh Speed Internet Access in all guestroomsoComplimentary Wireless Internet in Lobby and RestaurantoExecutive Desk with Comfortable Leather Chairs in every guestroomoDigital TV & Movie systemoElectronic Personal SafesoProfessional Laundry & Valet Service
