I have been coming to New York for a few years now and have always wanted to stay at the Sofitel, but never been able to afford it. Having stayed in the Sofitel in LA (through Hotwire), I decided to splash out and book four nights in (for the price of three) for my daughter and I to celebrate her 20th birthday the weekend before Christmas. Our flight was delayed so we arrived in the middle of the night to be welcomed by charming members of staff. The hotel was warm, stylish and inviting and our (upgraded) room was absolutely lovely - very spacious and well equipped. It's true what they say about the beds - they are so comfortable you don't want to get up. The bathroom was large and it was a treat to have a separate shower cubicle. The orchid and candle set the scene for a truly relaxing, pampered stay. We didn't order any room service (which I thought was rather toooo expensive), nor did we eat in the restaurant. However, a beautiful mousse-like tart was left in our room for my daughter's birthday and when I requested to store it in the mini-bar, a fridge was graciously delivered and installed in our room in a flash! New York was freezing (12" snow fell one night when we were there) but magical in the lead up to Christmas. The hotel was tastefully decorated and comfortingly warm and cosy. It was very quiet with no street noise or sirens. The three free computers in the lobby enabled us to keep in touch with the people we had left at home with no hassle at all and the concierge team were most helpful. So, did it live up to my expectations - you bet it did!
