Stayed at Sofitel for two nights for work. My room was on the 18th floor with good views of the city, and it was fun to open the blinds and watch the massive lightning storm that occurred on the first night. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom was very nicely appointed with Lanvin toiletries as well as two very nice touches, a disposable loofah/scrubbing pad thing and mini nail files. These are minor things, obviously, but I was very pleased with them as I travel a lot for business and I've never seen those in rooms before. There is complimentary tea and coffee I'm the lobby in the am, and it was easy to get a cab to the office.
The only reason I didn't give it five stars was that they didn't do turn down service, which I expect from a nice hotel and housekeeping didn't organize the makeup and toiletries in the bathroom. Not a big deal, but I stayed at a JW Marriott the week before (I didn't like it nearly as much as this hotel) and they did both. There was also a dried a water ring left on the bathroom counter. These are all minor complaints and I would certainly consider staying at Sofitel again.
