I have lived in San Rafael for 4 years and moved back to the US a few years back. Keeping real estate in Mendoza brings me to San Rafael a few times a year. For the first time I stayed at the Tower and was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are nice but are getting dated. Bathrooms could be overhauled a little. The pool area is very nice and so is the lobby. Free underground parking. Free WiFi. It worked great im my room next to the elevator where the router was located. Not sure further down the hallway.
The restaurant I have not fried myself but have been told recently that the food was not very good. This comes from people who eat well.
Around the area are sufficient nice restaurants through to find a good place to eat. Alantocho de Cocinero is one of my favorites. Walking distance. Amare on the main street is nice but you may want to give the Tower restaurant a try as well.More
