I was traveling on a business trip and stayed at Sofitel in Sep 2013 since it's near my office. The room size is quite spacious where there is a separate sitting area and a desk where I did my work and acted as an office space. The bathroom is a good size as well with the big bath and shower area. The room has a floor to ceiling windows so it's really bright with more than enough lighting in the day. The room also has a very good coffee maker so that was a plus whenever I need to wake up early to do a bit of work. It would have been great if the room I got was facing the viaduct area but I the room I got was the one facing the Vodafone office. The hotel was fully booked when I checked in so my request to checkin early was not accommodated. The only complaint I have is that when I went out for dinner, it was quite a long walk to where the pubs/restaurant areas where especially on a cold/windy night. The hotel service is excellent and is what can be expected on this hotel.
