Why Choose The Raphael Hotel Kansas City


The Raphael Hotel is located just steps from the Country Club Plaza, which offers shopping, dining, and entertainment. The Country Club Plaza is home to more than 150 shops and has year round events.

We took an easy stroll from the hotel to dining and entertainment, and we enjoyed the calming path along the river. The next morning, we enjoyed window shopping and a stop at the bookstore. Everything is within reach.


Kansas City’s original boutique hotel offers 126 beautiful rooms and suites, with charming decor and modern conveniences, such as gourmet coffee and fast, free hi-speed Internet.

If you’re looking for the ultimate accommodation experience, we’d recommend the Premier Suite. The two-room Premier Suite features a large living area for watching tv, dining, or relaxation and master bedroom with chaise lounge and king bed. The master bath includes an oversized water-jetted tub with flat panel HDTV.

When we are on the road for an extended period of time, we really appreciate the separate living and sleeping quarters. It allows Max to go to sleep early while Athena and I can enjoy a later evening in the living room area. We don’t need to sit in the dark while Max sleeps because we can close the door and let him get his rest. Additionally, when Max wakes up earlier in the morning, Athena can still sleep while Max and I play. It’s perfect for kids of different ages and sleeping patterns.


The friendly staff are ready to welcome you 24 hours a day. There is always someone at the door to give you a hand or answer your questions. The front desk staff are equally welcoming and very knowledgeable. As new visitors to the city and the state, we had a lot of questions about local attractions and dining within walking distance. The staff went out of their way to make sure all of our needs were met and our questions answered.

Chaz is rated one of Kansas City’s best restaurants. It offers modern, regional cuisine created from regionally grown produce and meats. Combine that with a cozy, upscale setting and live KC Jazz, and you have a uniquely Kansas City dining experience at Chaz on the Plaza.


The kids usually settle in at the hotel early in the evening and rise before the sun in the morning. I love having a great view from the room that allows me to enjoy the sunrise and the sunset.

Our suite view from The Raphael Hotel allowed me to see a beautifully calming river and look out over the Country Club Plaza.
