We were here for two nights this trip and it felt like home. My wife stays here at least 6-12 times per year and we always appreciate the welcome she gets from the hotel staff. I've stayed here 5 or 6 times. This property can get quite pricey in peak season so check around if they're charging more than $400.00 per night.
The location in midtown Manhattan is superb and the room accomodations are excellent. We've been fortunate to have had upgrades to junior suites in previous visits but that didn't happen this time. The room was still very nice and their bathrooms all had some of the best lighting and mirrors for shaving and make-up application. The comfort and luxuriousness of the beds and duvets at Sofitel are among the best I've ever encountered anywhere. Simply amazing!
We enjoyed complimentary welcome cocktails at Gaby's and had a light meal after our arrival from London, UK. They also served some complimentary Californian wine which was quite decent.

Room Tip: We haven't had a bad room in this property. Higher floors give better city views.

Hotel one block from time square easy walking distance of shops and loads of sightseeing attractions. Very comfy room had a superior one
staff all helpful. had a lovely meal in Gabys but just felt it lacked atmosphere and it was a bit chilly in there people sat with jackets and one ladie had here coat on. Did not have breakfast in hotel as 200yds down street was a fab diner called Red Flame good food reasonable prices. Being British did miss not having tea and coffee making facilities in room you can order it but not the same. would stay again overall great break.

Room Tip: Higher floor better views ask about late check out we got a complimentary one

Very nice Hotel, especially good value for money in the low season, when prices are very competitive. In high season, it can get very expensive, but certainly good value for money. A touch of French flair in New York..

If you like to sleep in dark, quiet rooms, you will love the Sofitel! The most impressive blackout curtains that I've seen in a long time!
On a lovely block with 4-5 very good restaurants, the Harvard Club, the Yacht Club, the Penn Club, and just a couple of blocks from Times Square & the Broadway theatres.

Have stayed at the Sofitel New York twice with my other half and both times got upgraded to a fantastic room with a view! The Sofitel beds are as comfortable as it gets, the bathrooms beautiful and clean, tasteful rooms, just perfect to unwind after a busy day in the city. Didn't have breakfast there but there is a coffee shop across the street and a starbucks a block across.Ate at the restaurant twice, both times quite satisfied. Will definetely stay at the Sofitel New York again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Chrysler building!

Just returned from a weekend stay at the Sofitel for my mom's birthday. The hotel staff was great - sent a lovely dessert tray and hand-written birthday card to the room for mom! Beautiful room on the 22nd floor w/ a wonderful view. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the bathroom has everything you need (ladies, you don't need to bring a blow dryer!)! The Gaby Restaurant has wonderful food . Highly recommend this hotel; staff and location are the best! Thank you Sofitel staff for making our stay so memorable!

Room Tip: 22nd Floor #2218 two "single" beds, but the beds are more like full size beds. Very quiet...
