Some hotels are great experiences. Marriott adding the Autograph Collection includes this Kansas City landmark. It hasn't lost any of its charm, service or luxury. The staff makes you feel welcomed; the rooms are clean and well maintained; the afternoon cookies are delicious. We found the no-cost parking and location two big bonuses. We very much enjoyed our two nights at the Raphael!

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the plaza.... great view.

When we plan a trip to KC, we will definitely keep the Raphael in mind! The location is perfect - directly across from the Plaza. The room, service and atmosphere was wonderful. Live music entertained you outside in the afternoon. There is free parking or valet parking and free wi-fi. We saw parts of KC that we'd not seen before - like Loose Park which is just up the hill from the hotel. This hotel is a gem and in a perfect location.

The room was a bit small. The service was fabulous from the moment that you pulled in to them bringing your car back. The room was tiny but very clean and it had that feel of when staying at a hotel was an experience.

The Raphael's location in Kansas City is terrific, just a short stroll to numerous shops, restaurants and parks. In addition, the room rates are very reasonable for a beautiful hotel of this caliber. Our recent visit was excellent. We would not consider staying anywhere else in K.C.

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room for best view.

This hotel is nothing short of a delight in every way. From the excellent and attentive staff to the beautifully done and decorated room, every aspect of our stay was a delight. It's the best of what that other fine hotel chain, the Ritz, typically offers...class, attention to small detail, outstanding service, and a great home away from home.

Raphael, you've won us over and we'll be back.
