Wichita, Kansas3 contributions
I have probably stayed here 150 times and it is my favorite hotel in Kansas City. It is situated right off The Plaza and has some amazing views of The Plaza if you get a room with a Plaza View. Rooms are ALWAYS clean — maybe seems a bit outdated but I think it adds to the charm. Workout room is not too large but could accommodate 6-7 people. I have never been there with more than three people. Chaz restaurant is great. The food is good and usually they have live music playing a few times per week.

The Raphael hotel in the Country Club Plaza is our favorite place for a romantic break. Well-located near upscale shopping and dining, this small boutique hotel offers excellent service and a fine dining restaurant onsite (Chaz). The rooms are attractive with luxury bedding. Classic black and white bathrooms are upscale yet take you back to an earlier time. If you have the right bellman, he will give you a brief history of the hotel as he delivers you to your room :) We especially enjoy cocktails in the hotel courtyard and delicious leisurely breakfasts at Chaz. Enjoy!

Stayed for 1 night as part of a weekend getaway. Used one of my suite nights and got a corner king suite with plaza views. For the number of rooms this boutique hotel has I was really surprised how many staff there were. The front desk staff were very friendly. Easy walk to the Plaza for shopping and dining. As a Titanium Elite member was given two $15 vouchers to use towards breakfast in Chaz - brisket and eggs was great. Room was a little pricey ($350) for Saturday night but Garth was in town and I compared it to lower end Marriott brands and felt the difference was well worth it

Gorgeous boutique hotel along Brush Creek - high end accommodations, walkable to a lot of restaurants and retail. Older property but kept up really well, Staff were very attentive. Great little jazz band playing in the entry plaza late afternoon weekdays.

This place is in a very upscale section of KC. It is a gorgeous property. The chief and I stayed there for a night and the staff was wonderful. The room was old style stodgy but very nice. The Sunday brunch menu was nice and we sat outside. Our server was professional and nice too. Definitely recommend this place!
