Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16 | Hotel Review
Sofitel Macau - Hotel Review
Only 10 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16 stands as grand as ever. Kind of.
Upon first glance, it is clear that the hotel exterior has gone through its fair share of rain, shine and then some since its 2008 opening. However the hotel's interiors have been kept in better form.
I recently stayed at the Sofitel Macau in a Luxury Room after being upgraded from a Superior Room thanks to my Le Club Accor Membership status. Asia Miles members may also earn miles on each qualifying stay.
The room was spacious and featured a mix of French and Macanese styles. My favorite feature is the window into the bathroom-- something I've come to enjoy in a lot of hotels I've stayed at. It adds the illusion of more space and light to the room.
The hotel provides L'Occitane toiletries in the Luxury and Superior rooms and Hermes toiletries for Club rooms and Suites.
We were celebrating a birthday during the stay and the staff sent up an array of complimentary gifts including a birthday cake, a box of chocolates and some fresh fruits to welcome us. Definitely plus points for the attention to details. The cake tasted great but the chocolates were kind of tasteless.
We ordered room service almost everyday during our stay which was great because no one judged us for ordering things like chocolate mousse and french fries or chicken nuggets and beer.
Sofitel Macau's Mistral is where the hotel serves its breakfast buffet providing a pretty standard selection of food. Most continents were well represented. Nothing special about the selection but there aren't any complaints either.
Senado Square and the Ruins of St. Paul are just a few minutes' walk away, for those wanting to be immersed in the sights. For those with money to burn and twitching palms, the casino is just below the lobby. There is also a shuttle bus that will take you to the land of shuttle buses to other casinos.
Sofitel Macau is definitely an oldie but a goodie that you should check out if you're looking to stay somewhere a little more quiet.
