This beautifully restored landmark has plenty to offer tech-savvy travelers.

InterContinental New York Barclay

Built in 1926 by the powerhouse combo of the New York Central Railroad and the Vanderbilts, this property consistently ranks among the city’s top hotels, a status that was cemented with a $20-million renovation. The lobby was restored to its neo-Federalist splendor, with a gleaming green-and-black Tennessee marble floor and three copper-filigreed, lighted-glass panels above. The clubby Gin Parlour is perfect for an elegant gin and tonic during the cocktail hour, while the Barclay restaurant offers a dignified setting for buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner featuring a menu of seasonal cuisine.

A full complement of facilities and services cater to tourists, families and business travelers, including a multi-lingual staff, express checkout, babysitting, a complete fitness center with sauna and hot tub, and a thorough array of meeting and conference services. The 700-plus guest rooms and suites continue the Federalist theme, although with a tasteful, modern touch. All feature mural artwork inspired by the Hudson River School, custom Anichini bedding, expanded bathrooms adorned with subway tiles and HDTV that is accessible to both digital movies on-demand and high-speed Internet (with complimentary Wi-Fi in the lobby). A pet-friendly policy ensures that four-legged family members need not be left behind.
