In addition to the usual upscale amenities, the suite will feature a “Cher Show” poster signed by the cast, a Time magazine cover signed by both Cher and her longtime costume designer Bob Mackie, Cher portraits by noted celebrity illustrator Al Hirschfeld and some original costumes from “The Cher Show.”
The Sofitel, which is in Midtown Manhattan a few blocks north of Bryant Park, is located in the middle of all the Pride action that’s going on.
Pride is always an event in New York City, but 2019 is an especially notable year.

The Sofitel is also about a 15-minute walk from the Neil Simon Theatre, where “The Cher Show” is playing.
Three actresses play various incarnations of Cher, from the variety show era Cher to the superstar days, in every performance. They belt out some of the one-named diva’s biggest hits, such as “Believe” and “If I Could Turn Back Time,” along the way.
Illustrations of Cher and “Cher Show” cast members are among the hotel perks.
The suite is available for bookings beginning June 10 and going through September 15.
If you already have your accommodations booked but still want to get a taste of the experience, the Sofitel’s Gaby Bar is offering a special Cher cocktail called — what else? — Turn Back Thyme.
The cocktail consists of gin, lime juice, ginger beer and thyme-infused simple syrup, topped off with a candied bit of ginger.
Bookings for the “Cher Show”-themed suite begin at $499 per night.
