This hotel has style and a wonderful staff. The rooms are so quiet that you cannot hear anything from outside. It is amazing to be in the center of NYC and have no outside noise, noise from other rooms or the halls. All of the rooms and suites I have stayed in have bathtubs and separate showers. They also have real orchids and candles.The beds are very comfortable. The Skyscraper Suites are excellent suites with ample room for a long stay. You can walk to the theater and many top restaurants. Butter Midtown just opened next door. The Presidential Suite is huge and great for entertaining or special occasions. (Yes, it is the suite that was in the news for derailing a French presidential candidate's career.) Staying here is as close as you can get to being in France in the United States.

Room Tip: Ask for a view if you are interested in them. If given a choice, elect for the Skyscraper Suite as t...

This was the first hotel in New York I actually liked. Convenient location close to Times square and 5th avenue. The room was large and the standard good. The lobby area was nice. Did not try the bar. The staff was always friendly and helpful. You receive new water in the room every night which I appreciated. Can definitely recommend this hotel.

Very nice, large, quiet suite with a nice view. Service, like the property itself, was everything you expect at Sofitel. Breakfast was expensive but good. Location makes it possible to walk to much of the city.

We stayed at the Sofitel for four nights during Memorial Day weekend. We had a great suite-as usual, service was exceptional and the hotel was able to accommodate our requests for early check-in and a small refrigerator. This hotel offers much more space than most hotels in NYC and is surprisingly affordable for all that you get. Nice fitness room, free coffee, above-average restaurant, excellent housekeeping - all within walking distance of Times Square, Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Station, and Central Park.

This hotel is situated only a few blocks away from Times Square, but was surprisingly quiet given the location. This hotel is a great choice for visitors looking for a place to stay Midtown. Grand Central and Rockefeller Centre are both less than 10 minutes away, Central Park is about a 15-20 minute walk, and Times Square and Bryant Park are each a 3 minute walk away. A cab to SoHo or the LES costs you about $15 (or less) with tip. For the more adventurous, there's a Citibike station on the same block of the hotel, right at 5th Avenue. The impossibly chic Royalton is across the street, and those looking for a good cocktail in a glamorous setting should check out their bar, Forty Four. DB Bistro Moderne is only two doors down; my friend and I enjoyed a great meal there, as well.

The staff at the Sofitel is friendly, helpful and polite, and the room was clean and spacious. The bathroom has a separate tub and shower, with great vanity lighting and swanky toiletries from Notes de Lanvin. The beds were plush and comfortable. There are lots of thoughtful amenities available in the room (Frette robes, generously-sized laundry bags, well-stocked mini fridge, slippers...). As mentioned, though, there is no in-room coffee maker (but, there are loads of coffee options within a block or two from the hotel, so this wasn't a problem). My friend and I got a room facing the rear of the hotel and we were both shocked at how quiet the room was.

On our last day, we were able to get late check-out as we were scheduled to leave Manhattan in the evening. The hotel kept our bags for us and when it came time to leave, we were able to use the hotel's spacious public restrooms to freshen up.

Overall, a fantastic stay and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Sofitel New York.
