Great location for walking to where you want to go and the view. The rooms are reminiscent of European style, smaller but elegant. The suites are worth the upgrade. Staff is very helpful and available. As I was traveling alone, the doorman was sensitive to let me know it was a very safe area for walking at night to and from nearby restaurants and shopping.

The staff at The Rafael are the most attentive and personable group of people I have encountered at a Marriott property in a very long time. Beautiful property and a nice restaurant on site. Jazz on the Green in front of the hotel was a fun event. Perfect location on Ward Pkwy near the Country Club Plaza. Highly recommend staying here when in Kansas City.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Rush Creek

Strings on the Green is a classy touch of live music that begins on the lawn in front of the hotel and migrates to the hotel restaurant as the sun begins to set. Our room was on the ninth floor with great view, well-appointed furnishings and bath, and good HVAC.

Room was small but had windows that could open for fresh air, nice furnishings, and an extremely comfortable bed with multiple pillow choices. The desk and internet connection was good for working. I arrived late so ordered room service for dinner, and the food was very good. My room faced the parking lot but it was a quiet night even with the windows left open. Staff is very friendly and the hotel has interesting historical features and history.

We visited the Raphael on our way home from a trip out West. We arrived exhausted and road weary. We were impressed by the friendly and attentive staff, and enjoyed the beautiful and extremely clean rooms. The rooms were well appointed with everything we could have needed, including thick towels, fine bed linens, and a generous coffee setup. The beds were extraordinarily comfortable. The room service menu was also quite impressive, as was the band playing in the plaza when we arrived. I’ve stayed in many upscale, boutique hotels around the country, and this one is among the best. Highly recommended.
