Hôtel Raphael

17 av. Kléber, 16e, Paris, 75116, France

This discreet palace-like hotel was built in 1925 to cater to travelers spending a season in Paris, so every space is generously sized for long, lavish stays. Cozy guest rooms, most with six-foot-tall windows, are decorated with 18th- and early-19th-century antiques, Oriental rugs, silk damask wallpaper, and ornately carved wood paneling. Bathrooms are remarkably large, and most have claw-foot tubs. The rooftop terrace, home to a gastronomic restaurant led by talented local chef Amandine Chaignot, offers beautiful panoramic views. Parents will find a friend in the concierge, who can arrange bilingual babysitters and offers recommendations for kid-friendly restaurants.
