Named after a Renaissance artist – and carrying the formidable spirit of the age – the enigmatic Hotel Raphael is vaunting a new range of draws to complement its already stellar offering. Here are our five top reasons to visit the iconic French fancy.
The 83-key hotel is not quite as old as the iconic Italian painter and architect, but has stood for more than 90 years, just steps from the Arc de Triomphe.
Run by the fourth generation of the same Parisian family, no room or suite are the same and each has its own delightfully unique style.
Famous Guests include Hollywood A-listers such as Grace Kelly, Clark Gable, Steve McQueen, Roger Moore, Kirk Douglas, Gary Cooper and Marlon Brando. Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn also lived here while they were filming the 1963 romantic comedy Charade.
The hotel has recently updated its rooms, offering a roster of 10 classic rooms, 12 De Luxe rooms, 7 Suites De Luxe, 8 Executive Richard Meier rooms, 10 Executives Richard Meier Suite, the Suite Bramante Terrace Suite and the dazzling Suite Navona.
You’re halfway to heaven at the seventh-floor The Terrace. Boasting some of the finest views in the City of Light, a visit to the bar is a must and so is a sip of champagne to complement the magnificent panoramic views.
