“New York 'baby'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Great loction for all the attractions,Time Square, theare district just down the road and some lovely restuarants close by too.

Room was comfortable, nice bathroom, our view wasn't great, but we didn't spend much time in the room. We were there to see everything we could. For a relativly large hotel is was extremly quite we were not disturbed with doors, lifts etc.
We flew into New Jersey and stayed with a friend of mine for a few days then got the train into cental station. travelling was simple on the train, and whilst in NY we just used the buses they were great for getting around.
The hotel arranged for a taxi to take us back to the airport.

Visited NY and stayed at Sofitel for 4 nights. The cost was some 1500$. The location is the best possible regarding activities in mid Manhattan.
The pros in Sofitel (at least, if you stay in room 1504)
+ nice view
+ very comfy beds
+ spacious std room
+ clean
+ friendly frontdesk and they speak french
+ very nice piano bar, lounge
+ good dinery only 50m to the right from the main entrance, open at 6am.
+ the room is well soundproofed
Cons
- no bidee in the bath room!
- carpet floor (not nice having any allergy)
- toilet paper is a joke
- currency exchange rate is poor at the hotel, use ATM

Stayed November 2012, traveled with friends

This is the most money I have ever spent on a hotel in New York..but it was good value for the extra dollars. Great sized room (awesome to have spacious closet), really nice bathroom with personal ammenities, great view. Decent gym. Super clean. Awesome location. Service was exceptional. Felt very special. If you are looking for a higher end hotel, this is good value for your money.

Stayed 6 nights at Sofitel New York in a king room and it was excellent. Every need is catered for. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever had in any hotel. The room was quiet, and very clean. We ordered room service food on the first night as we were feeling quite lazy after travelling, but it was so good we ordered again later in the week. Great location, can walk everywhere or the nearest subway stop is just 2 streets away. Loved having a separate shower cubicle and bath, would definitely recommend the place to anyone going to New York looking for a comfortable base for their trip.

After visiting NY many times we decided on a different hotel and we were certainly not let down by this one. The location is perfect, 2 mins walk to 5th Ave and Times Sq. Staff were excellent and the cleanliness was 100%.
