Having spent some time looking through Trip Advisor's reviews, I decided to book the Sofitel and I can say I was not disappointed. We have stayed in many luxury hotels around the world including the Burj in Dubai so it is always difficult to decide on a hotel. I can honestly say the Sofitel was brilliant. We had a junior suite ( room 1022) and it was very spacious and clean. Again, very quiet room either because it is soundproofed well or that other guests respect others staying there too. Lovely deep bath and the bed was comfortable. Room service was very efficient too. My partner had business to do while we were there which included a 200 mile drive from New York to visit a customer and the concierge were very helpful in printing out directions and a map for him to use for his travel. All the staff were very pleasent and helpful. We were not bothered by housekeeping in fact, I had a lovely chat one day with one of the housekeeping staff. They were all very friendly. Furthermore, the hotel is in an excellent location as other people have mentioned. Didn't enjoy the Red Flame diner down the road it was like a truckers cafe so would not recommend to eat there.
An added bonus was bumping into the tallest man in the world who was also staying in the hotel at the time! Hotel also gave us a later check out too when we asked. One other point I would mention is that the lobby has 3 computers with free internet access and this was a real bonus so no need to pay for internet unless of course you want it in the privacy of your own room.
