“Very Nice Hotel, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2011

My wife and I stayed at the Sofitel for 4 nights for a long winter weekend getaway. The hotel is very classy, and the rooms are very fresh, clean and nice albeit on the medium/smaller side. I called ahead to ask the concierge to order and deliver fresh flowers to the room for my wife and they did a great job - even when our arrival was delayed by a day - the beautiful flowers were in the room upon arrival. The front desk was great. We had to book an extra night because of the snow storm delaying our arrival. So being last minute the rates were very high. So I booked a queen room instead of the king - but they allowed us to stay in the king we were in - and not move - with no upcharge. That was quite nice. The concierge helped with a few things fine. The only thing was when we asked about a nice jazz club nearby, they sent us to a dumpy place - nothing classy like the hotel or the weekend we had planned. The other thing was when we asked about a nice piano bar, they twice directed us to the same place - but it was a jazz club with a huge cover. no piano. Other than that, the location is great - right off 5th ave. on 44th street - we could walk to Del Frisco's for a steak and to Grand Central and Times Square. Just a very nice weekend. I highly recommend it. Just find your own jazz club or piano bar..........

I've stayed in Sofitels all over the world. The chain is great, and this particular Sofitel is, in my opnion, one of the best in the chain. Every detail is attended to, every courtesy extended. Arriving there after a flight across the US, or the Atlantic, feels like coming home.

Now, if I could just convince them to put the lovely free coffee out before 7 AM.....

This hotel is in a perfect location - a short walk to Times Square but far enough away from the chaos. The beds were so comfortable, had 4 great nights of sleep. The staff were friendly, the rooms were very clean. No complaints at all. Loved it and can't wait to come back!

Service was second to none. Even before entering the foyer the welcome and attention was unbelievable. We had previously stayed at one of New York City's so called leading established hotels but never again. In future we would only be staying at the Sofitel in this city. Spotlessly clean, quiet and spacious rooms and very comfortable beds. Excellent location being within walking distance of Times Square, theatres, shopping and wonderful restaurants - all recommendations by the hotel concierge couldn't have been better.
