As one of the most sophisticated luxury Kansas City Plaza hotels, The Raphael Hotel, Autograph Collection combines historic charm with modern amenities. Built in 1927, our landmark hotel originally served residents of Villa Serena Apartments. Its 1975 transformation made it one of the most distinct upscale Kansas City hotels and a pioneer of the boutique hotel concept. Emphasizing personal service and an ambiance that goes beyond cookie cutter, our spacious guest rooms, complete with luxury bedding, offer travelers an urban retreat in the middle of the city. Our on-site restaurant, Chaz on the Plaza, features modern American cuisine with regional flair in an upscale setting. We also have a state-of-the-art fitness center with equipment for aerobic fitness and strength training, free weights and yoga equipment, allowing you to stay fit while you are away from home. Discover elegant meeting facilities that accommodate up to 49 guests, or revel in immediate access to some of the city's best treasures.
