InterContinental New York Barclay Reopens After Extensive Renovations
InterContinental Hotels Group announced the reopening of the InterContinental New York Barclay hotel following a $180 million renovation.
The hotel, which was first opened in 1926, had artwork installed that recalls the time of the its opening, including antique maps and early 19th century Hudson River School landscapes. The property’s 704 guestrooms and suites were reenvisioned to be reminiscent of classic Park Avenue homes in Manhattan, and the Club InterContinental lounge offers multiple presentations throughout the day, including a breakfast buffet, afternoon tea, evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, as well as snacks and refreshments throughout the day.
The hotel has two ballrooms, the 4,954-square-foot (460-square-meter) Grand Ballroom and the 3,500-square-foot (325-square-meter) Empire Ballroom, each with 17-foot (5-meter) coffered ceilings, chandeliers, and custom crown molding and millwork.
Guests can enjoy the hotel’s Gin Parlour, which was inspired by Dutch and English gin bars of the 1920s, and the Barclay restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
