French Deco flair in the heart of Midtown with nouveau bistro fare
Get ready for a taste of Paris in this curved 30-story limestone and glass skyscraper in Manhattan’s neon heart. The Sofitel offers a mixture of French elegance and American comfort, plus a little Art Deco flair, with rich marble floors, formal sitting rooms and modern artwork hung on polished teak walls. Elevators pay homage to the romance of travel with Paris and New York backdrops featuring planes, trains and automobiles.
Bed & Bath
These digs, while not enormous, are roomy for NYC standards and make the most of limited space with soothing colors, soft lighting and modern design. Oh-so-French touches include indulgent Hermès bath products in Prestige and Executive suites and Lavin amenities in the other rooms. Heavy drapes, soundproofing and pillowtop mattresses with thick duvets ensure peaceful slumber. Marble bathrooms feel spa-like with orchids, candles and oversize tubs. The real stunners are the Prestige Suites, whose 24th-floor perch offers expansive skyline views from private terraces.
The Deco-inpired lobby makes a great meeting place, but the prized hangout is the Gaby bar and restaurant. The folding window walls are ideal for people-watching on warm days, and the mirrored columns, green marble and soft banquettes feel cozy in the winter. Settle in for modern French fare, such as a salad niçoise with seared yellowfin tuna and wasabi crème fraîche, or foie gras with cognac, fleur de sel and fig puree.
In the Area
The Sofitel New York has the ideal Midtown location for sightseeing. Walk uptown and you reach Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Center (check out the skyline views from the Top of the Rock). If you head a little bit west, you find Broadway theaters and Times Square. Less than three blocks away, the New York Public Library, on the National Register of Historic Places, houses one of the world’s largest rare book collections. Free tours are available Monday to Saturday.
