    Professional, responsive and beyond magical!

    I had absolutely the best experience working with Sofitel, especially the director of catering and events - Darian James. The hotel truly provided everything that I need, from the luxurious and beautiful ballroom serving as the venue for both our ceremony and reception to the gorgeous bridal suite with a killer view of the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building and the big apple itself. If you are looking for a venue that embodies the charm of NYC and the romance of France, then this is your best choice!

    I have to mention more about Darian. He was very responsive from the first email to the end of the wedding party. Anything we need or any questions that we have, he managed to reply to us in a timely manner. I felt like he was our personal wedding planner given the effort he put throughout our communication.

    We were really satisfied with the menu and the entire chef team as well. The tasting went absolutely smooth and fun! We decided to go with their Grilled Angus New York steak and Red Snapper fillet as our main course. Every guest was raving about the food and how much they enjoyed the dessert and drinks as well.

    Overall, thanks to the staff team in Sofitel, we had our fairy tale wedding realized! They have truly one of the best services in New York City! Amazing food, space, and people to work with. I would highly recommend Sofitel for anyone that is looking to have a wedding in NYC.

    I would absolutely recommend the Sofitel New York Hotel for your ceremony and reception or just reception. We selected the Sofitel NY bc of their Sales Manager, Darian James. He was our first point of contact and worked with us until the very end. Darian was very responsive to our inquiries, was always professional and extremely helpful in planning our big day, from out of state! Darian sent pictures, brochures, menus and helped us plan out our day so efficiently, we felt so sure, we booked.

    We took a tour of the hotel three months later then taste tested five months later. Everything was esquisite. The hotel is enchanting. The ballroom is so unique and charming. Probably the biggest factor is how well we were treated by absolutely every staff member at the hotel. It felt like the entire hotel was there to help us on our day. We had a meeting planner, Lauren, call us to help set up any specific needs. We met the hotel manager, who would run the details in the back. I wanted for nothing. My wedding day was absolutely magical.

    My guests raved about the food. We had a duet of Seabass and Filet Mignon with risotto and vegetables. Even my skeptical senior members were super impressed with the great food and service.

    The service is classic French and it was fantastic. We had six passed hors d'oeuvres that were passed plentifully. The Sofitel delivered with elegance, sophistication and class. Experienced staff that managed everything beautifully from the Prosecco and sparkling water entrance to the cocktail hour and beyond.
