Sofitel Luxury Hotel Review

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 that dates from about the same era—it's rich, heavy, and filling. Gaby Bar serves small plates and classic cocktails.

    Great weekend stay

    I had a great experience at the Sofitel during Memorial Day weekend. The rooms were clean and neat. It had a super location to walk to Times Square and Broadway and was close enough to subway stations for city travel. The doormen were fabulous in their personalities and assistance. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

    Beautiful room, Excellent Service, Friendly Staff

    The title says it all (almost). Beautiful room, Excellent Service, Friendly Staff and AWESOME location. Check in is a breeze, room was immaculate, all staff warm and friendly. The price, for NYC was also right on point. Times square, Starbucks, restaurant, subway, all within a few block walk. You REALLY cannot go wrong here. The only "CON" to this stay was the breakfast we had at the hotel's restaurant Gaby. The prices!! French Toast, $24?? Aside from that, GREAT job Sofitel NYC!!

    Good Central location, high quality,

    A well appointed room, relaxing colors, good size bath with amenities. A little frosty reception at check-in but otherwise all staff were helpful. Breakfast was very good, fresh croissants, well prepared egg dishes etc but very expensive. Young, French breakfast hostess was excellent and a great ambassador for Sofitel. Concierge gave excellent restaurant recommendations for neighborhood choices. Hotel's location one of its best features. Would stay again when needing a mid-town hotel.

    Lovely but tired.

    The Hotel Sofitel is a richly appointed property in a very convenient location. Unfortunately the decor was worn and tired. We were greeted warmly by the bellhop, and the front desk staff was adequate. We visit New York often, love the city and are generally satisfied with our accomodations, but we will not stay at this property again,
