Stayed on business. Got upgraded to an executive room which is almost the same as a classic room but on a higher floor. At 20th floor, you can't see much apart from the very top of the Chrysler building. If you want a view you need to be in floors 25-28.
The welcome was typical Sofitel excellence with great attention to detail and sincere welcomes from all the staff.
The rooms are a little dated and quite small. The beds are comfy and the in-room internet (premium version $15 a day) is fast and reliable.
There is no breakfast buffet so you have it order a la carte. Portions are small but well made.
Location is great and the concierge is very helpful with providing local info.
If you can stomach the small rooms, lack of view and hoggish price then I can certainly recommend it for the great service.

Sofitel New York is a great hotel . Very well located as a base for tourist attractions. Rooms are really nice, good decor and beds that are so comfy and you just sink into, wow! Found the staff very helpful, friendly and able to deal with various queries. Hotel isn't cheap but certainly not expensive for New York standards. Would recommend for business or tourists alike

Off 5th Avenue with 44th street, great location, 10min walk to Times Square down and 10min walk to Central Park up. Good size rooms, great service, very clean. Didn't use breakfast but there are some diners and coffee shops nearby so it wasn't a problem. There is a back entrance in 45th street through breakfast room and there are two nice British and Irish pubs in this street. Also a pret a manger where you can get your coffee, pastries, sandwiches and hot soups. Overall a great experience

Room Tip: It is not a cheap hotel but if you can spend a bit more go for a King room in a high floor with grea...

The most ridiculous thing ever. I noticed a $35 charge on my credit card from the Sofitel Hotel in NY. Basically I drank a small Perrier which was in the back of the fridge. Naturally I had to move a couple of items to grab it. When I called to find out about the charges, they said that I was billed $35 because I moved some the products; mind you, NOT because I consumed them but because I MOVED them. INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I stay in NYC often for both business and pleasure. I booked the Sofitel for three reasons: 1. it was close to times square and my daughter loves it there; 2. sofitel reputation and 3. price of under $300. The hotel is amazing. Beautiful and well sized room, friendly staff, nice basement gym, good lobby bar. It really is a great place at a price for NYC that is too good to believe.
