Raphael Hotel

325 Ward Pkwy.
Kansas City , MO , United States http://www.raphaelkc.com/
(816) 756-3800

Fronting Kansas City’s upscale Country Club Plaza—one of the nation’s oldest outdoor suburban shopping center—the 126-room Raphael Hotel occupies a landmark 1920s Renaissance Revival–style building. The classic property doesn’t disappoint—and a recent $15 million renovation adds to its old-world charm. The refurbished lobby is enhanced by custom mahogany millwork, restored travertine marble flooring, and original mosaic artwork commissioned to depict the city’s rich history. Updated European-style rooms and suites come in shades of mocha, gold, and earth tones and have white beveled subway-tiled bathrooms with deep soaking tubs. In the evenings, guests gather at Chaz on the Plaza for melt-in-your-mouth prime tenderloin and music by local jazz and blues performers.
