The Raphael Hotel


The Raphael Hotel was formerly the luxurious, nine-story Villa Serena Apartments in European style, which welcomed affluent Kansas City residents in 1928. The historic structure’s vintage aesthetic and classic architecture were brought back to life in 2009 after a thorough repair. The sophisticated Raphael was reborn from this renovation. The lobby’s elaborate woodwork and mahogany paneling evoke the grace of a bygone era. The hotel’s guestrooms meet the comfort and technical requirements of elite tourists while also evoking the European past of the building through opulent details. The hotel is situated on Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, the country’s first commercial area created to accommodate customers arriving by car.
