We stayed at the Sofitel Copacabana back in June 2009 so this review is kinda late in arriving....
The hotel location was perfect - right at the end of Copacabana beach and only a 5-minute walk from Ipanema beach.
The room was fantastic - very large and a very modern, well appointed bathroom. We even had a view of Corcovado/Christ The Redeemer from our window (though it was fairly distant).
The breakfast terrace was great with views of the beach and ocean - there was also a glass elevator from the breakfast terrace down to the beach.
The nearest Metro station was around a 20-minute walk from the hotel (though I wouldn't really recommend walking between the two once the sun has set...).
Some great restaurants nearby on the beach and some great little bars serving caipirinhas right on the beach front.
