While I have stayed in the majority of hotels in New York, this must be my favourite. Sofitel has proven to be a name I can trust and I will return very soon.
A big thank you to the concierge staff for helping to locate my suitcase.

We stayed here in Feb 2010 and Mar 2010 and had stayed in various hotels before in NYC the Waldorf etc

We decided to try this hotel due to the reviews and the location near to TIMES SQUARE etc

The room was excellent and we had asked before hand if we could have a nice view - we got a view of the Chrysler building. The staff were excellent and we both enjoyed the service, the lovely room and reception area.

Rooms modern witha French chic about them....

We stayed for my birthday and received a complimentary birthday cake which my partner loved!

Would i stay again in a SOFITEL hotel ..yes i would. Thoroughly enjoyed it

Would recommend and stay again

My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night stay in the Sofitel New York.

Firstly, this hotel is wonderful and I would highly recommend it.

LOCATION - Midtown on 44th Street inbetween 5th and 6th Avenue.
The location is excellent, and with in walking distances of alot on the main attractions. This part of 44th street is nice and quiet, and perfect for what we wanted. 2 blocked over towards 7th Avenue you will find Times Square (very busy) I am so glad I didnt choose a hotel there right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle.

When we first got to the hotel and walked into the lobby / reception area, you could tell straight away that this was going to be a great place to stay (and we were not wrong). It had that classy / luxury feel about it.

Check in /check out - perfect, no problems and no waiting around.

ROOMS - Rooms were very spacious, clean and comfortable. Bathroom have a bath and large shower. It was a very classy bathroom.
Now the bed was AWESOME. Very big and probably the most comfortable that we have stayed in. Even to the point that just before we checked out, my wife decided to take the covers off the pillows and bed to check the labels to see what they were. (sad? Probably!!) We thought we might see if we could find them online, which we did and which we realised they were very expensive, so we wont be purchasing them!! oh well!!

The one day it was raining when we went outside. The doorman had a large umbrella which he gave us to use for the day. Little things like that go along way.

So overall this hotel is brilliant. It was so nice, especially after and packed and tiring day of sightseeing to come back to such a wonderful hotel to have a chill out before going out for the evening and then getting back to recharge the batteries for the following day.

If you are wanting to stay in Midtown - THIS IS THE PLACE TO STAY.

I've found Sofitel to be reliable worldwide and the NYC Sofitel is no exception. Location is great to 5th avenue and Times Square. Beds are comfortable. Very clean and euro modern. Bar was exceptional. Great Service all around. Nice size rooms. Will stay again!

Having stayed at the Athens Sofitel, I hoped that the New York Sofitel would be of similar quality. I wasnt disappointed. We arrived early and although our room wasnt ready, an alternative room was immediately offered. We were advised though that 'our' room had a lovely view so we decided to wait. And we werent disappointed. Views of both the Empire State and the Chrysler building from our room on the 23rd floor were spectacular.

The room itself was lovely, a good size by British standards (we had a luxury room) with the comfiest hotel bed I've ever slept in. Quality bedding, bathrobes and toiletries, marble bathroom with bath and separate shower, everything was spot on really. The public areas were luxurious, the flowers smelt wonderful and the staff were always willing to help. Oh and the room even had an opening window too!

How civilised to come back to a turned down bed with classical music playing too....

Great location which managed to be fairly quiet but close to everywhere you wanted to go.

The worst thing about this hotel was leaving. We will be back.

PS only one thing I'd change. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room please. Some other Sofitels have these so it would be good to see them here. That said, it really is a very minor gripe after a fantastic stay.

Stayed here for four nights and must say it was a very nice hotel. Rooms were big, spacious and clean. The best part was the Sobed, which was absolutely brilliant and had the best nights sleep ever!

If you want to stay in Mid town then this is perfect location, between 5th and 6th avenue, with a short walk to time square, empire state building, grand central

We didn't really eat in the restaurant as it was pretty expensive. Red Flame diner about 50 metres away for breakfast was perfect or Gregorys coffee opposite.

Pastis in greenwich village is brilliant too.

All in all a great hotel to stay in, great location, friendly staff, reasonably priced for how nice the rooms are.
