Great location, wonderful boutique ambience! Nicebar and redtarant and outside seating by the fire, too.

When you think of a quality hotel, you think about excellent delivery of service. The Raphael has amazing service across the board. I had booked our 3 night stay & then called to confirm & mention it was a celebration of our 20th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival, we were so pleasantly surprised to find an upgraded lovely King suite & a complimentary bottle of wine with a thoughtful note congratulating our 20 years. This is classy - they took note & followed through. The service at the front desk, valet with free parking, amazing free coffee in the tasteful lobby & lovely patio out front with gas fireplaces on cool mornings.... need I say more? The rooms are impeccable, toiletries of highest quality, amazing housekeeping services. We loved the Plaza location overlooking the riverwalk, used the B-Cycles across the street, did some shopping on the Plaza. Kansas City has a real gem in the Raphael - and a few music celebrities have also noticed the classy touch (as noted in sighting some tour buses of musicians parked curbside as we left for our U2/Beck concert at Arrowhead Stadium). We will be back!

Bath was very small, concierge just existed, wasn't all that friendly.

Ask for something it was done immediately. Location overlooking the Plaza us second to none.

Great quaint hotel fabulous location-- easy to go shop and walk to dinner Love this hotel

It's a beautiful hotel and the staff is great. The location is excellent: you are within walking distance to the entire Plaza.

The room was clean, well-appointed, and the location was excellent for a weekend on the Plaza.

Gracious living at its best! Food at restaurant and room service was great! Personal professional attention from checkin to checkout . Great place to go to recharge!

The hotel was very clean and has an excellent staff. The hotel bar and restaurant "Chaz," is very nice with good food and drinks. They have a nice live band there over the weekend. I would stay here again if I am ever back in Kansas City.

We stayed in the presidential suite, which was superb! Only wish was that it was on a higher floor and that our view was of the plaza and not the back of the hotel. Need more underground parking!

We love The Raphael and this was our second stay this year.It is lovely,intimate and feels like staying in a beautiful home with friends.Will definitely return whenever we are in KC.

This is the only hotel I consider when in Kansas City.I

From check in to check out, the staff was amazing, the hotel comfortable, and the room well maintained. Free wifi and parking, so a much better deal than the hotel across the street.

Perfect from start to finish..... Great room, friendly staff. We will stay again.

I recently took a business trip where I assisted a person with disabilities while he was on his vacation. We booked our hotel rooms with [...]. I do alot of business travel arangements throughout the year... [...]makes everything easier for me. Service at the hotel was great, staff & valet were very helpful with everything from type of room selection for persons with handicaps to vehicle and parking management. The scalpeling draping the entire front of the building was not visually pleasing, but the interior elegance and the great service made it hardly noticeable. We did a lot of sight-seeing and visited numerous hobby shops. Overrall it was a grand experience.

This is an alternative to the Intercontinental across the street. Small and quiet, with a better restaurant. Good for business travelers and couples. No pool. Formerly an apartment building, so room sizes and configurations vary, but rooms have all been updated to first class standards.

Excellent stay, staff was great!
