We stayed for a long weekend and enjoyed our stay here. The room was well-appointed, spacious, and nicely furnished. The Lanvin toiletries were very nice, and I loved that slippers were provided. They offered a complimentary mini fridge and coffee on request. Mid-town location was excellent and they also extended our checkout which was very helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

I just got back from a trip to NYC with the girls in my family. This was their first time to New York so we stayed at the Sofitel because it's walking distance to just about everything a 1st time tourist wants to see - Time's Square, Broadway shows, Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, etc. Personally I like to stay as far from Time Square as I can, but I have to say that the minute I walked into the hotel, it was quiet, serene and beautiful. We had 3 rooms, one with 2 double beds, a 1 bedroom suite, and one with a king size bed. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. I give the housekeeping staff 5 stars. Anything we needed they were there within minutes. This truly is a 5 star hotel. (Oh, and the lobby smells fantastic...the scent is Figuier by L'Artisan Parfumeur....my sister asked the Concierge!)

Sofitel NY is a no surprise, clean, perfect service and elegant (while , yes, in a perfectly standard way) luxury business hotel. It's perfect for business and fine for a no thrill, safe feeling hotel for tourists. The gym is well equiped and 24h. The concierge was efficient while charmless. Sofitel is basically what you should expect from a hotel in its category.

We took advantage of the extended stay offer with a complimentary upgrade to a suite. When we got into our room we realized that they gave us a terrace suite with a huge private terrace facing the Chrysler building: Jackpot! Apart from the fantastic terrace the suite had everything you could wish for including the most comfortable hotel bed on this world and great black-out curtains ensuring a good sleep. Location is great and central and the next subway station (Bryant Park) merely 5 minutes aways.

Room Tip: Terrace Suite if you are lucky to get it.

We found this hotel suited our needs perfectly. It is well placed for all the tourist attractions in New York although the subway stations are a little bit of a walk away from the hotel.
The staff were polite, helpful and pleasant and the public areas spacious, cool and restful.
The room was huge (we had a luxury room) as was the bathroom and the bed was extremely comfortable. This was especially useful after the miles of walking we did in the hot city.
We took the included breakfast which was nicely cooked but rather limited so don't rely on it to keep you going all day! The restaurant was wonderfully ambient with a definite French influence, as was the rest of the hotel. Staff greeted you with a 'Bon jour' and a smile.
I would definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking at the top end of the market.

I recently stayed at the Sofitel New York for 9 nights in early May.
I got a good deal for an extended stay and was upgraded to a junior suite.
The room is wonderful, comfortable, elegant with every amenity needed. The bathroom is large, pretty and with separate shower. The cleaning staff keeps everything well stocked and spotless.
All of the staff at the hotel are great and everything I wanted was provided, like coffee maker and small frig in the room. Great view of Crysler Building was an unexpected extra.
I also enjoyed using the computers in the lobby for everything I needed.
I love New York and coming "home" every day to the Sofitel was perfect.
Excellent, Elegant, Highly recommend!
