Overall, a great option in Times-Square. Rooms are nicely decorated, modern and large for NYC. I loved the bathroom and the rain shower. Very nice touch!
The bar is a nice atmosphere; the bartenders are friendly and very helpful.
Unfortunately, I encountered one major issue during my stay. Our room wasn’t ready until about 6pm! We arrived very early and stored our bags. However, when we returned at check in time, the room was not available. Although they gave us a few drink tickets for our inconvenience, I would have rather had time to freshen up before the show. I wished that their customer service would have been better to correct this deficiency.
However, I would stay again. Hopefully, they were understaffed for the Holiday weekend and will correct the issue.

We came to NYC to go to Birdland, right across the street from the hotel. It is far enough from Times Square to be out of the hubub, and close enough to walk to lots of places.
It was our anniversary, and we got a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, as well as an upgrade to a skyview(?) room--we were on the 30th floor, and could peek at Birdland any time we wanted to. LOL.
They have a Keurig coffee maker in the room, which we like. The bathroom was very nice, the bed was comfortable, the shower was good, it was clean, we were treated very well, no waiting for anything.
Thank you Intercontinental for making our stay so nice!

It was our 1st stay at this hotel and chose it after a lot of research as its was our 20th wedding anniversary. Can say with confidence that it was slick & very professional from the minute we arrived to leaving, location was great as its 5 mins max on foot to Time Square but not too close to be loud at night, we heard nothing at night. We were on 21st floor in a corner room so had views over the Hudson and the city which was great. The room was very very clean, good quality, bathroom was lovely, no water pressure/temperature issues or loud AC as I saw when doing my research. We didn't eat in the hotel as although the menu was excellent and restaurant looked good we wanted to eat in different places which to be fair isn't difficult in NY!!.

Useful Tips for future travellers

Taxi fairs from JFK to NY are set at $52 plus bridge toll which came to $58 in total which is great so no haggling! the guy on the hotel door when we left offered a $100 option which to be honest I suspect was just his mate so stick to yellow cabs !!
Great way to get around is get bikes from Bike & Roll at Pier 84 which is a short walk, we hired 2 bikes for the day for $75 total and used the designated cycle lane which let us go pretty much all the way around the west and south of the island so we saw everything we wanted to and we cycled over the brooklyn bridge and back, so we saw all the sites down both sides of the city, at our leisure on safe bike lanes which was great. We are both late 40's and it was a doddle and you should have seen the faces of people trudging across the bridge on foot!!, the cycle lanes were empty so its was perfect!
We went to the USS Intrepid museum, make sure you book online as you can go straight to the front of queue, which is always very long so its a no brainer, we actually booked online while in the line using free NY wifi and went straight to front :)
We got theatre tickets for top broadway show at the door for that night! which was great as prices online were mental and showed limited availability so try that if you are interested.

have a great time !

I am extremely particular and I really enjoyed staying in this hotel. I loved the bathroom as it was a great size, definately get the one with walk in shower rather than bath as far nicer! Also appreciated how clean the bathroom was as my pet hate is bad, discoloured grouting and this was all very fresh and clean.
The room itself was adequate, all New York hotel rooms are quite small unless you go for a suite. The only thing we found was that the wardrobe was tiny and we struggled to hang all our clothes. Also we felt that the room needed a mirror as if someone was in the bathroom, the other person couldn't dry hair or put makeup on in the room because of this. There was a great full length mirror in the bathroom however.
The decor was lovely, modern and fresh. The beds were fantastic and it was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in!! And you really appreciate that in New York after a long day.
It is also one of the few hotels where I haven't been woken up really early in the morning with noise, or other guests making a noise, so don't know if we were just lucky in our corridor, or if the sound proofing is particulary good.
We didn't have hot water on our last day and at check out the receptionist kindly took care of our mini bar bill, albeit there was only a couple of drinks on it, but I appreciate things like that and that I didn't have to ask for this. My friend, however, had a very abrupt female receptionist, unlike the lovely male who checked us out. She, on the otherhand, was very cheeky when asked about paying the mini bar due to the lack of hot water, although did end up paying some of it. This was a shame as all the other receptionists we dealt with were friendly and lovely.
The bar, if you drink in it is very expensive. The doormen outside are all really great and helpful and got us an SUV for travelling back to the airport.
All in all, we really liked this hotel and would stay again.

Just returned from a four day trip to New York staying at The Intercontinental on 44th Street. We were lucky enough to be 'upgraded' to a corner room on the 24th floor. Great views and not too noisy at night.

Hotel room magnificent. Extremely comfortable and bathroom was amazing.

Was slightly worried coming back to New York as we came for my 50th a couple of years ago with our two children and thought it might not be as magical. It was, in many different ways.

New York is an amazing experience and staying at The Intercontinental made the trip even more special. Staff courteous and could not do enough you. Danny, Concierge, helpful and friendly

I would recommend a stay there and will certainly be coming back on my next visit to New York.

Room Tip: If possible ask for a high, corner room. I'm guessing all rooms will be an amazing standard thou...

Great hotel on 44th Street, would stay here again for sure. I was unsure about being so close to Times Square - thinking it would be noisy and chaotic based on its location - but this hotel is very luxurious, quiet and a nice oasis from the hustle and bustle of the area. The rooms are a great size for NYC and the beds are extremely comfortable. The showers are awesome - with a rain shower head and hand held wand. Concierge services were readily available and very accommodating. Loved it!!!

It's very rare that you see a chain hotel with ambiance and warmth. The lobby is very attractive and different than the other major hotels in the area. The fireplace is the masterpiece in part of the lobby. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. Bathrooms are well maintained. Hotel is conveniently located to all attractions. You may find nice prices on parking garages nearby unlike the east and central Manhattan.
