I stayed at the Sofitel in January 2014 and was impressed with the beautiful architecture of the building as I have passed it several times on my way to Punta Del Este. This time I was in town for business and stayed one night. My room was available for early check in so I was pleased but others in my party were not able to check in early. Luck of the draw.
The hotel has a casino attached and if you would like to get a fews hands of blackjack in before retiring for the night this is a good spot. It also within walking distance of some fine restaurants, ice cream shops and shops just 3 or 4 blocks away. You are in a good location for sure.
The hotel rooms were small and there were a few misses. No comp water in the room, small bathrooms and overall small rooms. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. But again, others in my party did not have a great experience. One room struggled to get the AC to work correctly and several others commented on how very small their rooms were. I personally think the hotel is a bit under-staffed so if you want a luxury experience you might want to pass.
I might stay again and give it another chance but I will also be looking for another hotel to try in the future when I go again next month.
