Which Sofitel in Paris?

Which is the nicest Sofitel in Paris? I don't want to go by price because I know a lot of the price has to do with location not quality of room.

Judging by reviews, room quality can vary greatly within the same hotel.

What part of Paris do you wish to stay in? I often stay at the Sofitel Bercy for business reasons, but it's a bit out of the way for the usual tourist activities.

Bercy is a new hotel and quite nice.

The Forum Rive Gauche is a huge convention complex with nice, but very ordinary and boring rooms.

It's not right in the heart of things, but metro and RER connections (to Denfert-Rochereau) are good.

I agree with bvh. I think I know the answer, but I probably wouldn't have seen the question unless it were in the Paris forum.

I can recommend the Sofitel Faubourg (Sp?)

very nice rooms, great atmosphere and a good restaurant for being in a hotel not to mention the location - 100 meters from the place de la concorde on one side and some serious shopping on the other side.

Got there as it is the preferred Hotel of my Boss who happns to be parisian.

Cheers

Thomas

I have stayed at the Sofitel in the 16th district of Paris and loved it.

We had a wonderful suite, but the regular rooms were nice too. I like that area of Paris. It is very close to Trocadero.
