We spend a few days every spring break in KC, lodging in the Plaza area with our two daughters to be well-positioned for shopping expeditions. This year both daughters had other plans, so my wife and I upgraded our hotel to the Raphael. What a treat! Unlike other Plaza area hotels, the Raphael is a destination in itself. Room had excellent view. Bath well-lit - my wife loves to read in the tub. Staff very friendly and helpful. Live jazz in the club downstairs. Outdoor patios, great for nibbling your pastry and sipping your coffee in the morning. Location south of the Plaza makes an easy walk south on Main Street to new restaurants and old standbys such as Minsky's Pizza and Eggstc, as well as Visitation Catholic Church for mass. Caveat: super-firm mattress - I liked it but my wife did not.
