I stayed at the Sofitel two years ago, and enjoyed it greatly, so I chose it for my 7-day trip to NYC this July. One factor in this decision was the deal offering free upgrade to a suite if you stay 3 nights or more at a normal room rate. I suppose this is offered as long as suites are available, requiring advance reservation, but free cancellation is available, so that's no problem.
The suite is very spacious, very well equipped, and everything in it is at the pinnacle of comfort and cleanliness. Service is superb throughout the hotel, very polite and helpful. I do have two comments:
1. I normally have just a toast or bagel and tea for breakfast. Two years ago I had one breakfast at the hotel restaurant, and paying $30 + tax etc. seemed ridiculous. Not everybody has steak and eggs for breakfast, so simpler fare might be offered.
2. Tea/coffee service in the room would be most helpful. I emailed the hotel a week before arrival, asking about the availability of this service, but got no reply to this day. Fortunately there is a branch of Pret open until 1 am just 4 blocks away, so I used it at night.
This said, I would still use this hotel in the future, but I will bring a travel-size kettle.
