This was our first trip to NYC and we chose the Sofitel after reading mainly positive reviews. We had a room on the 22nd floor. It was well insulated and quiet. Furnishings were nice and the bathroom boasted an excellent efficient and spacious shower unit. There was plenty of marble in existence giving an aura of understated elegance. The only small detail that let it down were single (but significant) cracks in both the cistern and the toilet bowl itself. The hotel staff were all charming and helpful in the best kind of way; invisible unless you needed them, and helpful and knowledgeable when you did. We had booked on a room only basis which was great as there is a great (and always busy) Greek/American diner a few buildings away and an excellent coffee shop opposite. The concierge could be relied on to provide great tips too: he pointed us in the direction of Johns Pizza (2 blocks away) which was excellent value for money (tip: DON'T over order the portions are Huge!) Although if you do order too much they will happily wrap any slices of uneaten pizza individually in silver paper so you can either eat them cold or reheat them at your leisure.
The hotel kindly agreed to let us stay in the room until 2pm on our day of departure at no extra cost which was typical of the attitude during our stay. Room service was prompt and efficient with nothing too much trouble. Overall, despite being a large hotel the feeling was of a small intimate haven where we could completely relax. There is, simply no reason at all not to recommend it.
