We were flying with BA and wanted a hotel with parking, where we get to keep the keys and know the car has not been moved. Sofitel was spot on.
We got a fly and park deal via a well know holiday site that does extras. Ok all the yellow marked spaces were gone (that you are supposed to use) so I rang the reception and an extremely polite gent said, park in any space. The staff and room was exceptional, comfortable, clean and toiletries and robes etc. Reception stamp your ticket so there is no need to return into the hotel when you return and you can go straight to the car. The walk from the hotel into the terminal is undercover and indoors so I could leave the big bulky coats in the car too which was a bonus flying to miami in December. My only let down was one of the restaurants was closed so we used the main one, the food was good but the service was shocking - the main course had arrived before any drinks did, although ordered together and only then did we get them because we had to go and find a man in a suit - the art of avoiding eye contact was fabulous by the wait staff. Check out was fast, trolleys were free and available right next to check in and the bell boys brought all the luggage to the room for you. I also recommend trying a cocktail in the bar. All in all we will stay again but will will stop and buy sandwiches etc on the way in. Shame the restaurant service let it down really as the others were fabulous. And yes you pay more for the convenience but we thought it was worth it.
