Stayed here on business. Got a suite because we needed space to work -- it was a real suite, with separate bedroom and living/dining room with desk. (I hate hotels that call a room a "suite" just because there's a sofa in the corner. It's not a "suite" unless there's more than one room, and no, a bathroom doesn't count as a second room. . . . ) Wi-fi was free and worked perfectly. The staff was helpful and friendly, and prices for room service were surprisingly reasonable. The Raphael is right across the street from Country Club Plaza, where there's excellent shopping and dining.
