From the arrival to departure the level of service is amazing. The french touch is very appreciated.
Great concierge assistance and warm welcome at the reception. The decoration is cosy and present a luxury environment.

Best service, superclean rooms, fantastic view. I like the details like the flowers and pictures from Paris everywhere. The food is excellent and glutenfree is not a problem. Coffee and tea to take away is ready in the early morning. I can highly recommend this beautiful hotel in the heard of Manhattan.

Sofitel New York is definitively French with a light French flair about it along with an interesting deco décor. It is indeed one New York's better hotels. It's one of those that are, of course, pricey, around $400/night range when add all those pesky little things in like taxes, resident fees, destination fees, etc., etc., etc. But if you want to be in a hotel with the best of staff and a super location near Rockefeller Plaza, Times Square and Broadway, this is the place and well worth the premium price.

I was in room #1804 and couldn't have asked for anything better. The décor of it had a certain understated elegance and the bathroom was complete with a shower along with a completely separate and individual tub.

The hotel has one of the best of concierge services ever along with Gaby, a very good in house restaurant and bar. But I might add that Sofitel is located near some of the best restaurants of New York, which for a foodie Yelper like myself makes everything super special.

Besides the high price with all the silly add-ons of destination fees, resident fees, etc. (but this is true of every hotel in New York) the only other minus I found was a totally crappy Wi-Fi system and a computer room of only three computers, one of which never seemed to work, that seemed to have been taken over as a children's playground,

The hotel was part of an Expedia package deal and I was a bit worried the hotel would not live up to expectation, however my fears were easily squashed as soon as we walked into the lobby.

The staff were helpful and attentive as they could see we were tired after a long flight and arriving late at night we wanted a quick check in. I had emailed the hotel prior to our visit requesting a room high up with a view of the city as I had read it had fantastic views of the city. The hotel came up trumps and we had an amazing view of the Chyrsler Building and Empire State Building.

The room was big and very clean and the bathroom had a large shower and separate bath. This was the perfect room to unwind after a long day visiting NYC.

The only slight issue I had was with room service which was too efficient and would come at around 08:00 when I was still half asleep.

Overall it was a brilliant hotel in the hub of the city with links to all the major attractions!

Really enjoyed our stay.. the rooms were very clean, the beds were really comfortable.. well appointed marble bathrooms..
We would like to acknowledge Sonia from gaby’s restaurant.. she is an asset to the Sofitel.. from the beginning of our day at breakfast she would welcome us and at the end of our day she would be still be there, a wave when we walked in and a warm and welcome back to look after us.. her warm, caring, kind and friendly customer service is the reason why we would choose to return to the Sofitel..
