Identify font

Hi, I need help identifying the font used in the Sofitel Hotels logo. I attached an image with the logo. You can also see the logo at http://www.sofitel.com.

Sincerely Yours,

Jakob Jensen

You may very likely find overall similar typefaces, but these slightly bellied/bulgy/curved characters [see the verticals] sure scream (weirdly) custom/ised. They also seem to use ‘FF Clan (Extended)’, by Łukasz Dziedzic, for their ‘Luxury Hotels’ tagline, so the logo may be ‘customised’ Clan, as well.

Please first help people post their ID requests in the correct section. It might seem strange, but many Typophile users don't like seeing them. For like a decade already. Please see: http://www.typophile.com/node/125109

Dav, I imagine that the downvotes were indicators that people disagreed with your analysis, not that they thought you were wrong to try to help.

Admittedly, this may show a weakness in the simple upvote/downvote system, compared to other approaches.

Appreciate the help here, but let's make sure we direct these posts to the Type ID section. The first time a user posts Type ID to the wrong place, they get a personal message directing them to the proper place. Repeat posters may find themselves with suspended accounts. We gotta channel this activity, or it'll overrun Typophile as it did a year ago. Let's rally together on this!

Interestingly enough, the multiple downvotes does a good job to show Typophile admins and moderators those posts/comments that need attention. While the "meaning" may be ambiguous, it does give the community a tool to help sift signal from noise.
