We loved our stay at the Sofitel. The room was a good size, as was the bathroom. The sheets and quality of the duvet were impeccable -- standard for the Sofitel brand -- which means a great night's sleep. The staff was helpful and considerate, and I thought the price for the room was very competitive. More than anything, we... More

Although the rooftop bar is prominant in hotel's marketing and website,the rooftop is NOT available to general guests -it is incorporated into a private suite. The reception staff regularly deal with enquiries and complaints about this. Simply misleading and, apparently, intentional. (The rest of this review is to meet the 200 word minimum requirement but its all been said in... More

We were initially booked at another hotel, which was a disaster. I knew the Sofitel in New York, and when we decided to leave our previous hotel, we naturally went to Sofitel. After arriving, we were immediately welcomed with friendly staff, they gave us a room immediately, offered us some food, and we were treated like royalty for the ensuing... More

We stayed only for overnight, but I wish it was longer. The hotel is in a great location a 5 minute walk to times square and maybe 10-15 minutes to Rockefellar Center. The room was great, a decent size for New York with a nice sized bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and both the room and the bathroom were... More

We just checked out of Sofitel today and alas, we are back in DFW, much to my sorrow. Sofitel gets SO many things right. We arrived earlier than check-in time and were informed we had been upgraded to a higher grade room,but that it was not ready yet. We were offered the same grade room on a lower floor (18th... More

The location is perfect, near Broadway, Grand Central Terminal, Madison Square Garden, good restaurants and many others interesting places to visit. The room is pretty good, nice and quiet. I recomend for sure.

My wife and I stayed here the week before Christmas. This was a surprise trip booked by her and she was a bit hesitant about the location, but needn't have worried as it really is near most of what there is to see. Most tourists are out and about most of the day and evening, and we were no exception.... More

This hotel is a definite place to stay, European charm and service. I am going back in a couple of months. What an oasis in mid-town Manhattan. My stay could not have been better. The little extras were extraordinary, they deliver the Times in a cloth bag to your room. Need I say more.

This was our second stay here and it did not disappoint. We stayed 4 nights. The location is perfect for seeing the shows on Broadway, shopping and enjoying all the holiday decorations. The staff is friendly and efficient. Drinks in the bar area were relaxing after a day spent walking. The room was clean, quiet and very comfortable.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
