I stayed at this hotel because I generally like Sofitels (the one in Washington DC is excellent, for instance), and because it was rated so highly on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to those high expectations. The hotel itself is gloomy and, dare I say it, a bit drab. The carpets and furniture is worn. It could definitely do...

Sofitel had a promotion where you stayed three nights but only paid for two. Having stayed here before and liked it, the saving was substantial. The room was well appointed and the only quiblle I have is that the ice machine on our floor (20th) was broken and so we had to go down to the 19th. No big deal,...

Though we have stayed at the Ritz Carlton and The Carlyle while in Manhattan, the Sofitel will be our only hotel of choice from now on. My wife and I felt the value we received was unsurpassed and could never be matched by ANY hotel in N.Y.C. Our 650 square foot suite on the 27th floor came with a $60...

Ok, so we have stayed in some great hotels. The Sofitel is a beautiful hotel, but for some reason, we were just expecting a bit more. I hate to complain about small things, but seriously, when you are paying such a high price for a hotel, you expect things to be of high quality. First of all, the pros: The...

The location of this hotel is really fantastic, you are a few blocks from Time Square and Fifth Avenue. The park is also only a 10-15 minute walk away. The size of both rooms we had were great and the quality of the bathroom which I feel can sometimes let a city centre hotel down in the major cities was...

The hotel was excellent. Very well placed turn left out of the hotel walk one block and you are on 5th Av walk the other way and you come to Times Square. On a one way street getting a taxi at the door is no problem. The room was a superior room on the 19th floor. View over to the...

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...

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....

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.

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.
