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.
