We had a 2 queen bed suite for 4 nites with our 2 kids and fell in love. Fantastic sized room, great amenities and top notch staff. And the location can't be beat. The price was also great given the quality. Anyone in the fam would jump at a chance to stay here again. Oh, and the Wifi was speedy... More

This hotel has been on my bucket list for quite a while and deservedly so. From the time we entered the circular driveway to the time we exited the circular driveway, everything was perfect! You are treated like royalty here and made to feel like you are their only guest. Every staff person we came in contact with was delightful... More

Wonderful service, great location. When I was walking to dinner in the Country Club Plaza last week, the front door attendant handed me an umbrella and suggested I take it as there was rain in the forecast. Sure enough it rained during dinner, so his thoughtfulness was much appreciated. Great breakfast included as part of the room rate if you... More

Spent the weekend here to celebrate our anniversary. The staff had balloons and chocolates waiting in our suite when we arrived - such a personal touch. Cookies and cocoa in the lobby in the evening. Bed and linens so comfortable that we wanted to take them home with us. We had a presidential suite with a jacuzzi tub. Our one... More

I have lived in Kansas City, attended UMKC and had no idea about this hotel. What a beautiful hotel, large spacious rooms, great staff, amazing food and so centrally located in Kansas City's most beautiful downtown area. I contacted the staff to host a conference there and was given royal treatment before any contract was signed and still to this... More

I was upgraded to a suite so I can't speak to standard rooms. However, the hotel was beautiful and the staff was great and helpful. Great location in the Country Club Plaza. Convenient hotel with a great bar and restaurant onsite.

While in town for a business trip, we chose to host people at the Raphael. From the room reservations for our group to the social events we held at the hotel, we were extremely pleased with our experience. The hotel was gorgeous, the food excellent and the service superb. Our group also enjoyed being so centrally located to the great... More

Lovely boutique hotel. Awesome friendly staff with the best location in all of Kansas City. Suites are well appointed they may run small due to the age of the hotel but our suite was plenty large for our needs and we booked the smallest available. The dining is wonderful. A classic luxury hotel with midwest hospitality and laid back atmosphere.... More

We stayed in a junior suite. Accommodations are lovely and the room (overlooking the parking lot) was very quiet. The staff are all friendly and helpful. I appreciate that I was given the bottom line price when I booked so that there were no surprises when the express checkout statement was slid under the door.
