Raphael Hotel Review: 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. The distinctive boutique hotel has just 25 rooms and suites, all of which have private baths and comfortable sitting areas, as well as complimentary high-speed Internet access, LCD televisions with cable and HD channels, daily newspaper delivery and artful, warm décor. House restaurant, Chaz on the Plaza, offers upscale American dining, as well as a lounge with live music Tuesday through Sunday, an extensive wine and cocktail list, and 24-hour room service. Recently, the Raphael added two small meeting rooms to its list of amenities: the Blue Beacon Boardroom (for up to twelve people) and the Plaza View Meeting Room (for up to 36 people). Both come with audio/visual equipment rental, catering options, wireless high-speed Internet and conference call capabilities.
