Sofitel New York

45 W. 44th St., between 5th and 6th Aves., New York, New York, 10036, USA

With bilingual signage throughout the hotel, plenty of velvet in the lobby, and European modern design in the rooms—think blond wood and fresh flowers—the Sofitel brings a Gallic flair to Midtown West. This 30-story glass-and-limestone building showcases excellent skyline views; some rooms look out at the iconic Chrysler Building. All rooms have Art Deco flourishes, such as colorful artwork, and all bathrooms have separate tubs and walk-in showers: a nice bonus. Some suites have terraces with views of the Empire State Building that are worth the splurge. The hotel's French restaurant, Gaby, is named after a Parisian model from the 1920s, with a menu of small plates and classic cocktails that dates from about the same era—it's rich, heavy, and filling.
