Sofitel New York Embarks on Renovation

The New York hotel, an emblem of contemporary French elegance in the heart of Manhattan, is beginning a comprehensive refurbishment project.

This initiative, coinciding with the 60th anniversary of Sofitel this year, marks a significant milestone for the brand, reflecting its commitment to dynamic and refined luxury under the visionary leadership of CEO Maud Bailly.

The refurbishment plan encompasses all facets of the hotel, including the 398 guestrooms, comprising 51 suites and the Presidential Suite. The building’s iconic skyscraper One Bedroom Suites with breathtaking skyline views and the Terrace Suites providing unparalleled vistas of the Chrysler or Empire State Buildings from private outdoor terraces, will also be renovated. Additionally, the transformation will extend to the lobby level, meeting spaces, guest elevators and corridors.

The highly anticipated renewal of Sofitel New York, known as a “quiet oasis” amidst bustling Midtown Manhattan, will commence late 2024 with the completion of the public areas scheduled by the fall of 2025.

“We are excited to announce the refurbishment of the iconic Sofitel New York in the same year as our 60th anniversary, marking a new era for Sofitel,” shares Maud Bailly, the CEO of Sofitel, MGallery and Emblems. “With around 20 per cent of our global network undergoing or clearly committed to renovations, including Sofitel Legend The Grand in Amsterdam, and Sofitel Sydney Wentworth, we are actively elevating our guests’ experiences. This year, we are opening five new Sofitel hotels worldwide and have already announced two new locations — Sofitel Jaipur Jawahar Circle and Sofitel Legend The Mozart Prague. Our goal is to bring a little piece of France everywhere, supported by our dynamic pipeline of 30 hotels set to open by 2027. We also see great potential to expand our French flair in North America, beyond our six existing Sofitel properties. At Sofitel, we believe in a luxury that also serves a greater purpose. We are committed to a positive impact on our industry, aiming for 100 per cent of Sofitel hotels to be eco-certified by 2025 and ensuring that more than 30 per cent of our general managers are women by the end of 2025.”
