Going to NY in December

by MeAphillyGirl

Hi New Yorkers :)
Just wanted to get your opinion on the Sofitel New York Hotel! My family and I are traveling to NY in December for the week-end staying at the Sofitel and would love to get some feedback!!! Also any good places close by for dinner???

Here's the review page from tripadvisor. If you look to the right side of this page, underneath "Tripadvisor Popularity Index," you'll see a series of tab headings. Click on the tab for "Photos" and you'll see pictures posted by hotel guests. Those will give you a better idea of what the rooms look like than the pictures posted on the hotel's own web site.

And here is's review. They also have "unbiased" photos posted.

What kinds of restaurants are you looking for?

Hi, I'm not a New Yorker but have stayed at the Sofitel very recently.

This is a very well located hotel and I was able to walk from there to Times Square, Top of the Rock, Fifth Avenue shopping, Bryant Park, Grand Central Terminal...

The hotel itself is reasonably luxurious and the foyer and public areas are very stylish. I thought the room was small (compared to other Sofitels I have stayed at) and the furnishings were a little on the shabby side however the bathroom was lovely and well equipped.

There are many restaurants and bars in the streets surrounding the hotel as well as a number of cafes and bakeries for a breakfast bagel and coffee.

Overall a comfortable hotel in an excellent location, not sure if it represented "value for money" but just being in New York makes up for that.

Travel Tips for New York City

Cyber Cafes

by dejavu2gb

I had to check my bank details a few times and managed to easily locate internet.
Many coffee shops do have computers with internet access.
The price for internet will normally be indicated on the PC screens, you then just ask the cashier for x number of minutes, then you get a piece of paper and you are connected.
The times I went on the net I paid about $1-2 for 5 minutes of access.

See the ceiling in Grand...

by Jesouhaite

See the ceiling in Grand Central Station, especially since it's been re-done, go to the top of the Empire State Building at night and in the day too, see a great comedy show at The Comedy Cellar (117 Macdougal Street), have lunch at Dojo's restaurant on St. Mark's place... Everything! My fondest memory of New York is the absolute freedom to be whoever you are and to see people from all walks of life and every possible style living together in relative peace. It's interesting and a deffinite experience. I lived there for ten years before moving Upstate and never got tired of seeing the people, meeting new people. What I miss the most is the Subway, strange as it seems. You can go anywhere you want round trip for $3.00! And if you want to see New York City, the Subway will get you there and back in safety! No matter what anyone says, New York City is the most exciting place on Earth (well, where I've been so far...)!

Broadway and 5Th Avenue 23 Street because of the wind when this building went up so did ladys skirts.
23 Skid - doo is said to come from this as a policeman was placed there to chase men away. Its a good story true or not. Maps can and do deceive many places are better to reach by foot.
Union Square to 5th Avenue and the Empire State is NOT a long walk.
