Rich in history, the InterContinental New York Barclay opened its doors in 1926, and despite a recent ambitious restoration, the hotel has remained true to its original Federalist style, while also combining sophistication and contemporary design. Winner of the United States Leading Business Hotel award in 2016, this hotel is certainly suited to the well-heeled businessman and woman of the world, but of course, welcomes all guests with open arms. With a range of rooms and suites, there is something to suit all travellers. Close to Grand Central Terminal, shops and boutiques, this is a great home base while in NYC.
