So a year ago I posted a message saying I stayed in the Presidential Suite at the Sofitel NYC, and promised a follow up. I never did…
But this time I went back, and stayed in one of their Executive Suites with a balcony and a lovely view of New York. Certainly not the crazy size of the Presidential Suite, but it was extremely comfortable, with a good sized living area, bedroom and a small balcony.
I find the location great on 44th street, a short walk up to Central Park and 59th, or a short walk down to 34th St and the Empire State for example. It’s also easy to get to by metro, you can get the E directly and a short walk from JFK, and the closest stop is just on the corner of 42 and 6.
So the room this time had a good sized living area with a double sofa bed and chair, an office desk and chair, and as you can see a small balcony. Although not on the front with views of the Empire State, there’s still a nice view of midtown.
The bedroom was a very good size, with decent cupboard space. I always love the Sofitel bed! And this time it seemed like a super King to me. Every time I stay at a Sofitel I feel better rested than any night at home.
Off the bedroom there’s a short corridor to the bathroom, with a good sized deep bath and a great shower. They also provide very nice Hermes toiletries.
Two stays, and I will definitely be staying there in the future. Being an Accor Platinum, there are only two options in New York, and although I haven’t tried the Novotel yet, in this case the Sofitel was actually cheaper! I always try to stay in a Sofitel when I can for the bed though!
