Very nice hotel with everything we enjoyed including the inexpensive pastries, coffee and tea in the large open plan cafe / lounge near reception and restaurant. The view from the lift across the lake is stunning and so is the ambience and view from the rooftop restaurant - DO NOT MISS THAT EXPERIENCE. You can take your own duty free bottle up there but will pay $15 corkage on it but will be served nibblies and an ice bucket. Sofitel Plaza boasts a wonderful spa, gym and indoor/outdoor swimming pool, fabulous staff and service but the situation is a little bit out of both the Old Quarter and the French Quarter. There are some good cafes along the river within 5 minutes walk and a market place within 10 minutes walk, also a small supermarket across the road where you'll pay peanuts for bottled water other than Evian which costs the earth. It's a nice walk around West Lake. Don't go to the Happy Feet spa across the road from the hotel as we did - you'll be stood over for a 50% tip and by the look and feel of things, it's a spa that would give a happy ending too. Stick with the hotel spa or advice from the hotel travel desk. Remember that the massage therapists are not qualified professionals like at home, so be aware if you have any physical issues that they may not pick up on them as they go through their scripted treatment - one treatment fits all.
