Overview

Guest rooms are spacious and tastefully appointed
Recent guests said the water pressure isn't great

Originally opened in 1926 as one of four hotels built during the expansion of Grand Central Terminal, the InterContinental New York Barclay reopened its doors in April 2016 after undergoing an extensive two-year restoration. Now, this historical InterContinental property (which once welcomed notable guests like Perle Mesta and Ernest Hemingway) combines traditional Federalist decor and local 1920s-inspired artwork with modern touches like bold accent colors and a fully equipped fitness center. All of the hotel's 733 guest rooms and suites come with custom Anichini bedding, flat-screen TVs and subway tiled-bathrooms, while the upgraded Presidential Suite offers additional perks like a private fitness center, a baby grand piano and a library office. Most former guests appreciated their rooms' decor and amount of space, though some bemoaned poor water pressure in the showers. No matter which accommodation you choose, you'll enjoy access to The Gin Parlour (where 80-plus premium gins are served alongside international dishes made with sustainable, organic ingredients), a business center and 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Plus, travelers who pay an additional daily fee (which ranges from $80 to $120) can access the Club InterContinental, a lobby lounge that offers free Wi-Fi access, personalized reception services and complimentary breakfast, among other amenities. Keep in mind that IHG Rewards Club members can also earn or redeem points when staying here.

Designed by New York Central Railroad in the early 1920s (and funded by the Vanderbilt family), the 15-story InterContinental Barclay is in many ways a classic American-style hotel (though its parent company, IHG, hails from across the pond).
