OVERVIEW of Sofitel Hotel
I have become a real fan of the French inspired, Sofitel Hotels, having enjoyed them in New York, Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago and LA. They are sophisticated and stylish with the amenities and design of a 4-4 ½ star hotel, but with very reasonable prices. (except maybe Peak Season) They are probably the best value around. You pay less money but don’t sacrifice quality or room size.
The New York Sofitel is perfectly located on W. 44th Street in the heart of mid-town. The theater district, Radio City, Rockefeller Center, 5th Avenue shopping and many of our Featured Restaurants are all within walking distance. Convenient parking is right across the street.
THE ROOMS at Sofitel Hotel
The hotel has 346 rooms and 52 suites, a beautiful dark bar, an Art Deco, French inspired restaurant, Gaby, and a complete fitness center.
My Queen bed room was large by NY standards at 350sq. ft. and tastefully decorated with beige walls, patterned carpet and an oak paneled accent wall behind the bed. The pastels were offset with burgundy and black trimmed furniture and a maroon bed duval. A lighted Impressionist painting over the bed added an air of the dramatic. The bed was a delight, a soft plush featherbed with high count cotton sheets that made for a wonderful night’s rest.
The bathroom was large and decorated with beige wallpaper and colored marble floors and counter tops, a large mirror and Impressionist art. There was a glass enclosed shower stall (which I like) and a separate tub. Other amenities; fresh flowers, thick terry robes, plump, soft towels, a digital scale and imported toiletries.
DINING at Sofitel Hotel
Gaby Brasserie Francaise is an Art Deco inspired restaurant featuring contemporary French cuisine.
THE SERVICE at Sofitel Hotel
The entrance is a beautiful study of marble and fabric and the greeting is friendly and prompt. Our bags were taken from the car, a claim check provided and we were escorted to the front desk. Check-in was quick and we were in our room in less than 10 minutes from arrival. The mostly European staff is friendly and helpful and eager to please.

AAA Four Diamond Award
“Regulars love the feeling of reassurance they get at this highly competent French hotel chain in the heart of Midtown (a perfect location for shopping and theater), which is well-managed by an efficient staff; minimalist rooms might lack oomph, but they’re decent-sized for the city and excellent for business meetings, while sensitive sleepers enjoy soundproofing and those feather beds!” ZAGAT
