My husband booked this for the two of us for a fun weekend in NYC before traveling south for more touring. After a long day of sight seeing we were happy to sleep in the most comfortable hotel bed ever.--loved the duvet bed linens too! NYC is loud with activity but we couldn't hear a thing from our room, not even normal hotel noises such as elevators, ice machines and other guests coming and going. We stayed at 2 other hotels on our trip in Philly and DC and none compared to this cozy and quiet hotel well situated in the city. We'll go to another Sofitel again for sure!
