This is one of the better hotels my wife and I have stayed in in the past ten years. The outside of the hotel looks like any of the others in the (Hyatt, etc.) but the inside had the kind of styling that betrays its French heritage. The large bar area, dining room and lounge comfortably blend leading to the deck with the pool and the lake close by. Though the pool seems an after thought (and it was too cool to think about swimming), it did add to the ambiance. The gym was the right size and had all the right equipment for my exercise program.
The room, though modest in size, was fine for my wife and me. And the bed - sheer comfort. The company trumpets its beds - and rightly so. My wife and I both had great nights sleep after active days in the city. The small couch by the window was a nice touch and the view was good of the distant hills.
The meals where a nice step up from the usual faire, highlighted by the excellent steak served at a celebration dinner during our visit. The only complaint would be the slightly dry pizza served for a lunch.
The hotel staff took care of our needs, calling a taxi, arranging for airport transport and serving us in other ways to make our stay pleasant. I highly recommend this Sofitel.
