Come here for a one-of-a-kind stay – with the whole city at your fingertips.

The views from their rooms is really something special – all the rooms and suites feature spectacular urban views, ranging from 44th Street in NYC’s Midtown, to the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building.
The Prestige Suites are the only choice if you’re looking for the height of luxury. Located on the 24th floor, the Prestige Terrace Suites offer around 1000 square metres of space, with a private terrace with amazing views of the Manhattan skyline. That’s not all – the room features the most incredibly comfortable king-sized bed, and a living area with sofa and minibar.

The Sofitel New York has two main dining options: Gaby Brasserie Française and Gaby’s Bar. The Brasserie is the place to come for more refined food; located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, adjacent to the vibrant Theatre District and Times Square, Gaby Brasserie Française brings a taste of 1920s New York glamour to the present day. Gaby is open for breakfast through dinner daily – and they do a great price pre-theatre menu. For breakfast, tuck into organic eggs, savoury French Toast, blueberry pancakes and freshly-squeezed juice. For lunch and dinner, you can expect delicious salads, serious sandwiches and freshly grilled meat and fish. Don’t miss their Lobster Roll, it’s so good.
Gaby’s Bar is the more low-key option in the hotel; lively and sophisticated, Gaby Bar offers classic and creative cocktails, complemented by a casual menu of pub favorites, sandwiches and small plates. Perfect for a quick bite before a theatre show on Broadway or become heading off for a day of sight-seeing.
Sofitel New York redefines luxury. It’s the perfect hotel if you’re looking for something really special in the city – the kind of place you want to come, and have all your needs taken care of. I really cannot recommend the hotel highly enough; the staff, the facilities, the suites, the food, are all perfect.
