Birthday getaway

Beautiful hotel and room was perfectly decored and spacious. Upon checking in we shared we were celebrating my husband's big 3-0 bday and got a complimentary upgrade tp the king premium room and 2 free drinks at the bar. Amazing hospitality ! Will definitely return.

Cons: There was a bug on my washcloth, my sheets had a hole in them, and if I wanted wifi, I had to pay for it.
It was a bit disappointing at the hotel. I was constantly wondering if there would be other bugs.

Nicely remodeled

Love my stay at the Barclay. Nice clean room and excellent location. I would have given them five stars if it were not for the fact that they don't provide complementary bottles of water in the rooms. Who the hell does that?. I have stayed at really bad hotels in the past but they at least provided water.

Great location and Comfortable beds!

This hotel had a great location for getting to Times Square and many eating establishments.Also the lobby was beautiful and very helpful staff.The room was clean, large, and very nice. The bath was a little small but its an old building. Only con was the food prices are quite hefty to eat there.The breakfast buffet was $35 per person and $20 plus off the menu. Even a cup of coffee was $5.50.

Run down hotel with terrible service

Three of us stayed in two rooms at the Intercontinental Barclay for two nights in May, 2013. Regular check in is 3pm; our room was not ready at 4pm so they offered to put us into a different room. They first put us into a bedroom whose bathroom door did not close. Then they put us into a room facing the hotel's air conditioning system. By this time we were too exhausted to fight. The bed was the old-style kind that actually bounces when you sit on it and my back paid the price after two nights. The clerks at reception were rude. I would not recommend this hotel.
