Chose Sofitel for a two nights stopover based on location and reviews. Check in was polite and efficient and our luxury room was nice, clean, quiet, had a very comfy bed and a large bathroom with L'Occitane products. Didn’t try the restaurant, but had some very good drinks at the bar. Will definitely be back during our next trip to... More

Recession policies are obvious. Slipped maintenance, closed hotel shop, worn in room literature, missing doorman at times, luggage pileups, etc. Real nice roomy accomodations, excellent responsive service, great location are still in place. May be NYC market representative. Don't know.

Have stayed in many hotels in the city - would highly recommend this one. I booked this stay for my boyfriends birthday and stayed for 3 days - Will honestly say I never once saw a maid, yet the cleanliness of the room, as well as the rest of the hotel, was incredible. I loved it and will definately return.... More

This clearly appears to be a popular hotel; unfortuntately the level of service I received before my trip was so appalling that I was forced to cancel the trip and opt for another hotel. when I go abroad, I usually email the hotel that I plan to stay in to check a few details with them.

We like New York and usually go every year for a shopping weekend. We normally stay in the Mark, which has a great location and fantastic service. However as it is being refurbished we needed an alternative. We have had bad experiences of large hotels in New York, so when a friend recommended the Sofitel I was not expecting much.... More

This was our first visit to NYC and we were torn between this and the Library hotel. The Sofitel won due to price and in the end i am glad we picked this one. The hotel has an air of sophistication about it the minute you walk into the lobby. Lots of fresh flowers and scented candles litter the entrance... More

The Sofitel has very comfy beds! We were very close, walking distance, to the theater, Times Square, Grand Central and great music and bars! Sofitel is a great midtown place to stay. We had a wonderful time and great drinks at the hotel bar - try the white grapefruit martini!

Stayed here for 3 nights on both business/pleasure in May 2009. Initial thought of the hotel when arrived was, "Ooh, elegant", taking a glimpse around the candle-lit lobby, marble flooring, and European-styled furniture. Very nice, I thought. Check-in was also impressive. Had an extremely late arrival (1AM) due to flight delay, but was still greeted with a pleasant, helpful smile... More

Loved the location of this hotel, right on 44th between 5th and 6th avenues. It's close to a number of subway stops, Bryant Park, the Theater District (i.e., Times Square) and countless restaurants.

From start to finish the hotel was great (apart from one minor hiccup).

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
