Ah, autumn in New York: As the Vernon Duke song of the same name asks, “Why does it seem so inviting?” This year it is especially thrilling and poignant as the city that has suffered so much but, as everyone knows, never really sleeps reawakens. While you anticipate actual crisp fall weather in the Big Apple’s best season – and its best month, October – you can enjoy “the thrill of first-nighting” as Broadway and Lincoln Center are back. (Just remember your Covid-19 vaccine card for indoor entertainment and dining.) There is another New York Yankees playoff run and soon, leaves to peep. Or come just to shop, museum-hop and never stop.
With all this whirlwind activity, you’ll need a place to call your home away from home. Now celebrating its 75th year, the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is a brand synonymous with luxury hospitality. Stay like royalty at the InterContinental New York Barclay, in the heart of Manhattan, and don’t forget to enjoy a drink at the hotel bar – The Parlour, an homage to all things 1920s. This iconic Manhattan property has been welcoming guests since 1926. Just steps from Grand Central Terminal, guests can easily experience all that midtown and Central Park have to offer.
The best room at the InterContinental New York Barclay is the Harold S. Vanderbilt Penthouse, a majestic Park Avenue suite. The penthouse offers a 1,300-square-foot private terrace and breathtaking views, directly overlooking the Chrysler Building. The living-room space is wide open, boasting floor-to-ceiling windows and inviting natural light.
The Barclay also offers a Presidential Suite, one of the most elegant in Manhattan. The history of this highly distinguished private residence speaks for itself, placing the Barclay’s Presidential Suite in a class all of its own. The expanded 3,400-square-foot suite addresses the needs of heads of state, royalty and the most refined travelers alike. Conceived with this guest in mind, the ample living and dining areas, entertainment center, bedrooms and bathrooms are exquisitely designed with historic accents and elegant furnishings. The impressive grand marble entrance, library, office and baby grand piano add to the grandeur of the suite, setting a new standard of luxury accommodations. It even has its own private fitness room, so you can do your aerobics and Pilates in complete privacy.
