I booked a luxury room with a harbour view for my partner's birthday. When we arrived we found out that the lovely receptionist (Caren) had upgraded us to the Monte Cristo suite! This beautiful penthouse suite was on the 6th floor of the hotel and was simply stunning. We could not believe our luck! We booked a lovely restaurant called Peron (5 minutes down the road, also highly recommended) and when we returned there was a complimentary bottle of champagne waiting for us with a hand-written note.
I tend to book small, independent, boutique hotels for the personalised service and individual charm, but I must say, having stayed in the Sofitel on both my partner's birthday, and my own in Rome in February, I am beginning to change my mind.
Congratulations Sofitel, and many thanks Caren, we'll see you next year!
