While Kansas City is enjoyable all year round, booking a room at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Raphael Hotel is best during the spring, summer or fall. All of the area’s biggest attractions, such as the Kansas City Zoo, the myriad museums and the boutique shopping, are best experienced in the warmer months. Likewise, sports fans will have a choice between catching a Kansas City Royals game at Kauffman Stadium or a Kansas City Chiefs contest at Arrowhead Stadium.
You can count on The Raphael Hotel and the surrounding Country Club Plaza neighborhood to be lit up and beautiful during the holidays, too. When the snow falls, the brilliantly lit path near the river is a spectacular sight. However, much of the neighborhood’s charm is found in the ability to walk to nearby shops, restaurants and nightlife, which can be hampered during the chilly winter months.
