This historic Kansas City hotel is located just steps away from great shopping, and only minutes from West Port. Raphael Hotel staff are second to none in hospitality, genuine friendliness, and fast service.

This hotel is located a stone's throw from the plaza with amazing views, shopping, and fountains galore. Upon checking in I asked for a plaza view. I walked into a 7th floor, corner suite, so I got 2 views! Building is old but rooms are updated and super clean. Luxury in a word.

My family and I got a last minute booking here. The hotel is older but still lovely. The room was very pretty and the bed was very comfortable. I was so happy it had a tub and took full advantage. Room service serves several things 24 hours. Self Parking is only $16 and you can walk to the square easily. We will try and stay here next time we visit the city.

This classic hotel has nice rooms and phenomenal customer service. The location is perfectly situated for a weekend exploring the Country Club Plaza area. From the valet parking to the accommodating front desk staff, we couldn’t have had a more pleasant stay.

I’m the Ambassador elite member with Marriott. I know how to figure out whether the property doing good or not. Believe me guys this place goes above and beyond to prove my point. I used to live in the best hotels that Marriott brand could even provide and this one is definitely one of them. Stuff is just the best!! Hotel looks so nice that you would never believe that you are in Kansas City and not in Venice or Rome. I love this place. I think this place should shows all the others how to do the job. You are the best guys. Thank you so much for the pleasure staying with you! Anton

Dear Antonio9301, WOW! Thank you for such a glowing review. We truly appreciate the recognition and we will always strive to make this the best hotel in the city (or maybe even Venice or Rome). Please come back and join us for Thanksgiving and experience the magic the Plaza has to offer during the holidays. My best, Amy Ridgeway General Manager
