My husband and I traveled to Munich from his meeting in Zurich for Octoberfest 2011 because it was on my bucket list. Although we have been to Munich a few times before, this was a different experience altogether. We tried to book through American Express Travel and they dropped the ball on two occasions, so I was left to fend for myself in finding a suitable place to stay. I knew I was booking late (August) during their most busy time of year, followed only by their Christmas extravaganza. After reading many reviews on Trip Advisor and other internet sources, I bit the bullet and booked this beautiful five star location because I knew my husband would love it. It is located in the old post office and is a beautiful imposing building. Reception was efficient and courteous. Our junior suite was overlooking the train station which became entertaining once young revelers in costumes arrived for Octoberfest. Otherwise, after spending money for a suite, I would ask for a different view.
Our two rooms were large and spacious and words cannot describe our beautiful bathroom with glass sliding doors, large walk-in shower with bench and heated marble floors. The toiletries were Hermes.
Because of the many activities throughout the city, other than their fantastic breakfast buffet (extra cost), we did not explore the pool or spa, although we did have a drink in the bar before taking a cab to dinner one evening.
Staying at the Sofitel Munich will be the gold standard of hotels for me.
