Midtown - Times Square, New York

Hotel Sofitel New York

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • An elegant choice when going to the theater -- while Times Square is only two blocks away, the immediate area is quieter
  • In-house French restaurant is recommended by Condé Nast Traveler, an accolade that can lead to tasty yet pricey meals
  • Some suites have terraces facing the Empire State Building
  • French flair means fresh flowers and a more traditional look, though beds are notoriously plush and cushy

"The best" -- Frommer's

"This really is great location - midtown but quieter than Times Square. Just a couple of blocks from Bryant Park. Staff were courteous and friendly. The restaurant, Gaby, was excellent too."

Set just a half block from Fifth Avenue in an ideal location for sightseeing, the Sofitel New York "brings a Gallic flair to Midtown West," says Fodor's. The 30-story hotel is located in Midtown West Manhattan, just a five-minute walk from the upscale boutiques of Fifth Avenue and Rockefeller Center. Times Square and the Theater District are only three blocks away. It is also extremely well placed for subway travel with some 16 lines in walking distance.

In the velvet-trimmed lobby, there are cascades of exotic flowers and friendly multilingual staff to welcome guests. The on-site French brasserie, Gaby, is recommended by Condé Nast Traveler magazine and is popular with pre- and post-theater diners, as is the sleek bar that serves up original cocktails and cognac. While there’s no spa, there is a well-stocked gym, open 24 hours a day.

All bedrooms at the AAA 4 Diamond property are roomy and feature the Sofitel’s trademark feather SoBed and floor-to-ceiling windows that make the most of the views (some even overlook the Chrysler Building). If you can afford it, opt for a suite with a terrace facing the Empire State Building.

From the press:
  • "There are many fine hotels on 44th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues, but the best, in my estimation, is the soaring Sofitel" -- Frommer's
  • "Some suites have terraces with views of the Empire State Building that are worth the splurge" -- Fodor's

Enjoyed Most: I loved all the extras that you don't always get at other hotels, i. e. bathrobes, slippers, sewing kit, emery boards, turn down service, two bottles of water each night. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed Most: This hotel is elegant and stylish, with grand public spaces, modern decor and conveniently located in mid-town near the theatre & museums (our destination). Our room was very large and very comfortable. Quiet, too! A full breakfast (ordered off the menu) was beautifully presented, tasty and a great value.
Other Comments: Valet parking (at a reasonable charge) is super convenient.
