Expert Reviews
Located just steps from Country Club Plaza and such notable Kansas City sites as the Nelson-Atkins Museum and the zoo, this property offers a luxuriously cozy and convenient stay.
Built in 1927 as an apartment house, the Raphael today bills itself as a boutique hotel. It's an intimate, European-style facility with large rooms that have excellent views of the plaza.
