Excellent and caring staff in this hotel sets it apart. The physical plant is up to date with an elegant lobby, clean modern rooms with modern art reproductions on the wall. We stay here whenever we can get the right price, which is fairly often. The ambiance is very romantic.
A great place to stay with your partner. Location gives you good access to both uptown and downtown neighborhoods via a pleasant walk. Highly recommneded.

Sofitel is a jewel in the crown of NYC. This European boutique hotel is tucked away on a reasonably quite street in midtown near grand central and minutes from the Theatre District. Serice is impeccable and room decor very comforting. Food is superb. Price is very competitive. Epitome of customer servcie excellence.

Room Tip: relationship with reservation clerk

What a wonderful surprise we found in midtown Manhattan. The Sofitel was just a beautiful , elegant top of the line hotel. From when we were first greeted at the door, to the reception desk to the housekeeping service, everyone there goes out of their way to ensure you are having an enjoyable experience. There are no New York attitudes here!
Although the room was small, which is not that surprising in NYC, it was clean and very comfortable. The bedding was very high quality and towels were luxuriously thick!
Special notice to Gabrielle, the bartender in their bar/restaurant who was sweet and makes fabulous chocolate martinis!
Looking forward to visiting NY in the near future and will definitely make this our new place to stay! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: I would upgrade to a superior room.

I booked a suite for 7 nights to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday. The room was lovely and from my experience of New York hotel room size spacious (plenty of room for all our (my) shopping bags and no tripping over any of them!!). The hotel is in a great central location making most of the New York's major attractions a walkable distance. Also there was a good spot for breakfast just a few doors down. In relation to service I have no complaints - the rooms were spotless, staff helpful and on my husband's birthday a birthday cake was left in the room - a very sweet touch. Would definately stay here again.
