My wife and I are from England and we both turned 40 in May so we chose to come to NY for 5 nights to celebrate. We chose the Sofitel following a recommendation from a friend and also the good reviews we read on TA. We weren't disappointed. With it being a special occasion we opted for a junior suite. When booking I explained it was for a special occasion and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we had an amazing stay.
Upon arrival we were greeted by Benjamin at reception and he was extremely courteous and noted that it was a special occasion. Our room was located on the 27th floor and we had great views. The room was extremely clean and we were really glad we had the extra room with the suite. After unpacking we headed out for a few hours and when we came back to our room later that evening, we had received a handwritten card from Benjamin congratulating us on our celebration and it was accompanied with a delicious chocolate desert. It was a nice personal touch.
We didn't eat at the Gaby restaurant so I can't comment on the food but we had a few early evening cocktails at the bar one evening which we enjoyed. The lobby of the hotel is spacious, with fresh flowers and it had a nice relaxed vibe. All the staff were extremely polite and helpful and I can’t find a single criticism following our stay at the Sofitel.
What we really liked too was the location of the hotel. In between 5th and 6th avenue on 44th street, so just a few blocks away from Times Square. We were close enough to be in the heart of the action but it almost felt we were nestled away from all the madness!
My wife and I had an amazing time in NY and the experience of staying in the Sofitel made it feel really special. I would have no hesitation coming back and would highly recommend it to anyone else.
