This is just a quick sneak peak at what must be the hotel highlight of my lifetime. My recent trip to New York was a special holiday, and to complete it I had booked the Presidential Suite at the Sofitel New York.
First, the hotel itself. Coming along 44th Street it is a discrete affair with a nice entrance way.
On arrival a bellhop took our bags for us, and we were shown to the reception area.
The lobby of the hotel is a pleasant space. Nothing too showy, a nice smell, some comfy chairs. The concierge desk is by the entrance, and the conceirge staff were really excellent. A classic Sofitel experience I’d say. I’ve never figured out if I like the ‘bonjour’ from the staff – I wish I spoke enough french to see if the french can keep going beyond hello!
My only slight disappoint at check in, given we were in the premier suite of the hotel, was that no one offered to show us to the room. We made our own way to the 28th floor.
Opening the room to the suite was an amazing experience. I have never stayed anywhere like it, and doubt I will again! The premier suite of the hotel, it was a huge 1200 sq ft, with a living room, office, bedroom, dressing room and 2 bathrooms.
Stay tuned for a future post where I will share some pictures of the room! I did take a video, but I think it is a bit embarrassing to share with the general public in our excitement of touring a hotel room larger than my apartment:)
But to sum the stay up – amazing!
