Kansas City's original boutique hotel first opened as the Villa Serena Apartments in 1928. The nine-story Italian Renaissance Revival landmark was recreated into The Raphael in 1975 following a total renovation that modernized the property while preserving its classic beauty and historical significance. A multi-year total renovation concluded in December 2009 earned the property its listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
