“Local peach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was such a fun place. We celebrated our anniversary at the Raphael and enjoyed such a wonderful time. Great service, from the valet and bellman when we first drove up, to the delectable beverage and macaroon waiting for us inside, to the upgraded suite, to the remote drapes in the room, the Keurig coffee maker, to the comfortable bed, and the fantastic breakfast that made me feel I had traveled to Europe, when I was just across town. This was a fantastic place, I loved the history, personality, and fun loving persona of the Raphael.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a Plaza view

This hotel is the best in KC now that the renovations are complete. You can't beat the location if you want to be near the Plaza. Service is very good. The rooms are large and the beds are so comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here with my cousin in July for a girls night out. The room was heavenly. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the a/c was cold and the room service breakfast was scrumptious! Can't wait to come back.

this hotel is completely up to standard now that renovation works have been completed.
I stayed there many times and it is nice that the staff remembers you from the front desk to the breakfast room.
The location is also great since it is close to the Plaza, a large shopping area

I can't say enough about this hotel - it was the best hotel experience we've had in a long time. I admit we stayed in a fabulous suite, but, in the East or on the West coast it would easily have been 2-3 times the cost! The staff was friendly and responsive without being overbearing. Although the building was an old apartment complex, it has all the technological conveniences you need - including free wi-fi and a Keurig machine in the room. I might have to return to KC just to stay in this hotel!

We stayed there for our anniversary. If you enjoy small, boutique type hotels you will enjoy this hotel. Their restaurant has fabulous food and ambiance. The location is on the edge of the Country Club Plaza where there is so much to see. The room was very comfortable. Service was excellent!

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Raphael Hotel in Kansas City. It began with the very warm greeting by the doorman and continued with the front desk staff. Our room was well laid out, larger than most hotel rooms and very clean. The following morning we had breakfast at the Chaz and the service was poor and didn't match the service within the hotel. All in all we enjoyed our stay!
