I had just gotten off the most turbulent flight ever on a tiny regional jet which had no air ventilation working. Apparently I looked as sick as I felt.
And then the car arrived at this fairy-tale like charming hotel. With the 11 foot tall (okay, that is an exaggeration, but boy he was quite a sight for my very sore eyes!!) bellman who opened the door to my car and said 'welcome to the Raphael. How was your flight?" "You don't want to know", I replied and he laughed and led me over to the treat filled lobby. Greeted with chocolate truffles, cookies and THE best hot chocolate I have ever had in my life and entering the 2 room suite with the most comfortable bed ever - I quickly forgot all the troubles from my flight and slept like a baby.
Couldn't have asked for a better stay. Thanks all at Raphael.
