Sofitel New York is very convenient for 5th Avenue and Times Square in Midtown Manhattan. Got a good rate but the facilities were very high end. Got a nice upgrade with a King room, no view but this is Manhattan so many roos view dingy courtyards. Excellent bed, very nice bathroom indeed and very roomy all round. Used the bar/restaurant which was quite classy.

Staff were attentive throughout, they have carried the French accent well.

I'd recommend the Sofitel for a high quality stay in Midtown at a good price, especially for NYC

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade

Dear Guest,
We are delighted that you had a great experience at Sofitel New York. Our goal is to always exceed our guests’ expectation and we thank you for taking the time to share your story.
We are very sorry for the view, but is true in Manhattan midtown is not easy to get views we are in the middle of very high buildings and we have only 29 floors, so is not all the building that have a chance to have views. I would suggest that next time you do your booking direct with our reservations department and ask them to allocate you a room with view, and we may have a chance to please your request.
As per your comment you got a good rate, if I may suggest to everyone that can read this comment, book in advance, make a good choice of the period you can travel and I am sure you will have a chance to get a good rate.
We look forward to welcoming you again soon at Sofitel. It will be our pleasure to have another opportunity to show you the gracious hospitality and superb service for which we are known throughout the world.


Sincerely,

Jorge Tito

We spent a week at the Sofitel New York and really enjoyed the location, room and staff. The restaurants surrounding are outstanding and it's really close to great shopping on 5th Ave

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor room 2922 that included a great view of the Empire State.

New York has fantastic hotels if you are willing to spend $750 or more per night. Finding a mid priced hotel room in Manhattan that isn't a coat closet with a bed jammed in it is a challenge. Here is the answer. Nicely appointed large (by NYC standards) rooms are only the beginning. This hotel is perfectly located on 44th between 5th and 6th Avenues. A quieter street so traffic noise is at a minimum. A gracious staff that attends to your needs with kindness and attention to detail. Most importantly though, this Sofitel makes the best cup of coffee you will ever have anywhere. The coffee alone is worth a trip to New York.

Room Tip: Higher is always better in NYC

We have spent 5 days in the hotel with a group of friends / colleges. Honestly we didn't spend much time in a hotel but I can say, that hotel is nice, comfortable and does not give you a filling, that you are spending time in very big hotel.

Breakfast area is perfect and gives you a touch of France in middle of NY. Stuff is friendly and help you organize eventual events or visits.

I will definitely stay there again.

We stayed for four nights to celebrate a special birthday. On arrival we had our room upgraded & on my birthday a plate with cake & strawberries was delivered to our room. A lovely touch ... The room itself was lovely with a good view. You can't better the location as well - walking distance to a lot of sights but still quiet. Can thoroughly recommend staying here.
