U.S. News Review

The Raphael Hotel earns praise for its affordability, as well as its luxury. The hotel's location — overlooking Country Club Plaza — is another feather in its cap, according to recent guests. The Raphael's 126 units fit neatly into a converted brick apartment building, which was built in the 1920s. The upscale American cuisine at Chaz on the Plaza Restaurant and Lounge comes very highly rated, and it can be enjoyed either at a restaurant table or in the comforts of your private accomodations (there's 24-hour room service). Staying in your digs will be perfect for enjoying in-room amenities like 300-thread-count sheets, a minifridge and complimentary wireless Internet access. Because the Raphael is a part of the Marriott brand, members of the Marriott Rewards program can earn or apply accumulated points here for additional stay benefits.
