This is one of the nicest hotels in KC, and we felt like royalty in the room. The staff was professional, courteous and took care of the reservation problem immediately.

Poor service for a hotel trying to be classy

My family and I made a trip to Kansas City's Country Club Plaza on July 23rd. I had made reservations for the Raphael after extensive research on hotel rating sites. When we arrived to check in, we were told that the people staying in our room the previous night had decided to stay extra nights, so we were downgraded to a lesser room. I was shocked that a hotel that prides itself on its' wonderful service would downgrade (and not upgrade) our reservation. I firmly told the front desk clerk that I had made our reservation over a month in advance, and they could either accommodate my family with either the room type I had reserved, or they could upgrade my family at no additional charge. She told me the downgrade would only be for one night, but then I would have to move all my luggage the next day to a different room. I politely told her the Raphael would either accommodate me with my original reservation request, or we would stay at a different hotel. After 10 minutes and getting her manager involved, they were finally able to find a room available that was not a downgrade (not an upgrade either). I had requested a room with a view of the Plaza, and our room had a view of the Intercontinental Hotel. I couldn't remember if I had paid more money for the Plaza view, and when I inquired about whether I was paying for a view I didn't get, the front desk personnel told me that I should be happy to get a room in their hotel at all. So, we stayed for one night at the hotel (we were supposed to stay for 4), and the next day we moved to a much nicer room at the Intercontinental for less money. The Raphael is an okay hotel with disorganized and arrogant front desk staff. We won't ever stay at this hotel again -- however, I would highly recommend the Intercontinental.

Excellent location and overall value.

Pros: Close restaurants, great drinks/live music
Cons: traffic noisy on lower floors
Staff was accommodating and friendly. If wanting a Plaza View room, make sure you request an upper floor as the traffic noisy at the 3rd floor was very loud when trying to sleep at night. A/C could not keep up with high temps outside in July. A fan in the room would be a welcome addition. Overall, location to the Plaza is worth the stay!

very quaint hotel close to everything

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, great drinks
We stayed at this hotel for a weekend getaway. A couple joined us. We really liked the off street parking. The restaurant made great chocolate martinis. We found our room to be clean and well decorated. If we return to Kansas City we will definitely return. We loved the feel of a hotel in a setting like Country Club Plaza. It was a great location close to restaurants, shopping, and quaint enough that you felt like you were in a little town.

Great girls' weekend destination

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, close shopping
Got a great deal to stay here in October. The room was odd shaped but fantastic. Great attention to detail while keeping historic charm. The room had everything we needed: bed, sofa with sleeper, desk, mini fridge. The bathroom was updated and very nice. This is the perfect spot to park and walk to shopping and dining!
