Great staff, lovely location and a haven from the mean streets of NYC! The room was fab, spacious, no view whatsoever but not to worry. The bed was amazingly comfortable and there were a lot of nice little touches like turn down service and the sound system on the tv can be switched on in the bathroom.

I'm going to search out more Sofitels in the world!

Right up to the Sofitel mark. Great rooms, warm welcome, good food and five minute walk from Times Square.

We stayed at the Sofitel for 5 nights in March during our trip to New York and couldn't fault the hotel. It is in a great part of town and is really well situated for exploring NY being between 5th and 6th Ave. As you would expect with a NY hotel the room was on the small side, but it was immaculate and we had a great view from 19th floor. The staff were very friendly / helpful and there is free internet access in the lobby which was useful. The Red Flame diner which is a couple of doors down was great for a traditional american breakfast and we would also recommend the coffee shop just across the road.

I was very happy with my stay at Sofitel.

Our stay in New York coincided with my boyfriend's birthday. I called Sofitel a week and a half before our stay and organized for a bottle of champagne, some cheese, fruits and nuts. This was a very easy process. They were extremely friendly and helpful. I couldn't have been happier.

The room, which was a junior suite, was great. It was very spacious and very nice. There were live flowers in the room. The Hermes shower products were very nice.

The hotel is very dog friendly. We had our two small dogs with us and had a very pleasant stay. There are dog meals available through room service, which our dogs absolutely adored.

The location was great. We generally stay near Soho, but I really liked Sofitel despite it being near Times Square. Bryant Park and proximity to Central Park made it worthwhile.

PS. The bed was incredibly comfortable.

We came to NYC to attend a business dinner and chose the Sofitel because it was within walking distance to the event. We booked a superior king bed room online, but at check-in we were upgraded to a spacious junior suite on the 28th floor...a nice surprise. We have stayed at the Sofitel before, and we were pleased to see that housekeeping & maintenance have kept the property in good form. The overall feel is stylish and classic, rather than flashy or trendy. The lobby is a very comfortable place to meet up with friends.

Room Tip: Request a high floor when booking, and ask about an upgrade at check-in.

Really enjoyed the stay here at the Sofitel. Location was great just off Times Square and easy access to he great shopping on Fifth Avenue. Concierge was very helpful with simple things like dinner reservations and an umbrella on a rainy day. Reception desk was a bit cold and believe it or not - there were Mosquitos in the room and lobby. Nevertheless, I would recommend the hotel
