Sofitel Rio de Janeiro Copacabana
A top pick for business travelers, the Sofitel sits right on the famed Copacabana Beach. Its 388 rooms all have balconies, many with views of the nearby Sugarloaf Mountain. The rooms and suites are spacious and elegant, with soft-toned modern furnishings and luxurious bedding. Guests will enjoy top-notch service and amenities like a pillow bar and complementary mineral water—as well as a spa complete with solarium and hammam. The French influence can be found in the hotel's dining options, which include an award-winning restaurant specializing in gourmet French cuisine, with Brazilian influences of course, and a rich breakfast buffet rife with French pastries.
