What a pleasure to discover that our hotel restaurant is a great dining destination on top of its convenience. We had two delightful dinners there.

We went ot Gaby's after the theater and it was perfect. Nice bistro fare just perfect for late night. The restaurant is located in the Sofitel Hotel so if you're in the area it's a great choice. The food wasn't special but it certainly fit the bill for a few hungry people late night! And the bread basket was terrific.

While booking the suite for more than a week we negotiated the B/F to be part of the package ( normal price 40 usd plus tax). Though we expected a buffet, we were not disappointed to see it was a la card. However when the hostess told us that we are only allowed to have ONE dish from the menu.... More

Who would think to order an egg beater omelet? Sounds dreadful doesn't it? It's on the spa cuisine menu at Gaby and it turns out it is absolutely wonderful. I don't know how they do it, but this is my favorite omelet in the world -- perfectly cooked, nicely fluffy and with wonderful chunks of turkey. Served with a croissant... More

Stayed in hotel for 4 nights, had breakfast every morning and various times. First two days were OK although very slow to bring breakfast to table. Second two days were appalling, slow service, forgot milk for tea, messed up order, no refills of juice and very sloppy service. Although food was good, service and general control over customers was very... More

We stayed at the Sofitel Hotel and opted to have breakfast included. I would have given it 5 stars, but I have to take off a star because of some of the restrictions they have regarding what is included as a hotel guest. I'm basing this rating on stays we've had at other Sofitel Hotels in Europe that have buffet... More

Was looking forward to dinner since reviews were fairly good. When we arrived, there was a B rating fr dept of health. Since I know sometimes this could be for a small infraction, we went in anyway. Bar was lovely however we were shown to a table near the window in a 2nd room. We sat alone until almost we... More
