Pros: Well located for business, close to the Metro. Best bed in Paris for comfort. Excellent staff that really seem to care about you.
Cons: The restaurant is excellent but pricey, the hotel is extremely difficult to find by automobile.
Nice Place and very comfortable.The staff were right when they told us "you would sleep like a baby " as the beds are the best ever. Although the hotel is a 5 star but don't expect the luxurious classic europian style hotels. It's modern and small one.The real problem here is the location, it's a bit far from the attractions and it's really dark area at night but at the daytime it's beautiful and there is a large mall nearby. Would go back if i find a real deal.
I stayed here the 31 January and 1st February on business at my company's French office which is 5 minutes walk away. I arrived around 10pm on Tuesday evening and was upgraded to a luxurious Junior Suite which was excellent and very comfortable. It was easy to have a snack later on that evening in the bar and breakfast from 730am had lots of space - this morning a later breakfast was busier but the staff coped well juggling the number of residents and their external visitors.
After a late night last evening at the office dinner was seved at 1015pm very quickly and was of good quality with great service.
The hotel is 150 metres from Esplanade de la Defense Paris Metro station and with one change after RER from CDG at Châtelet des Halles it took me 65 minutes for €9.25 after I landed at 20:00.
A taxi this afternoon to Gare Du Nord took 30 minutes and €28 which for Paris is good value.
Overall I would recommend the hotel for business but stay closer to the centre for a family weekend.
Stayed at the Sofitel when visiting Paris with my girlfriend over a long weekend. The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The rooms are a good size and very comfortable. The only problem with this hotel is that it is slightly out of the way. However, there is a metro station nearby it takes around 15 minutes to get into the heart of Paris so not too bad.
We stayed on 27th December until 1st January for my 21st birthday. Our room was nice, clean and spacious and the hotel was decorated for the christmas period. The drinks were rather expensive, 20 euros for a vodka and diet coke. The staff were very friendly and always willing to make recommendations where to visit and eat. The hotel is based very close to the metro station which makes travelling very easy and convenient and the area around the hotel was nice and quiet. Also, the architecture around the La Defense area is impressive. I would definitely stay here again if I ever come back to Paris.
