We got a great groupon deal. The hotel is in an excellent location if your wife wants to shop. Water Tower Mall is just next door. The hotel has a cute vibe and very attentive staff. The room and elevator are a bit small but the features are upscale. We found the bed very comfortable and surprisingly for its location...

We have stayed at the Raffaello numerous times but this trip was the worst one yet... Internet was non-existant, thermostat did not work and the pull out sofa was broke so our kids slept on the floor.

Not what I expected from a 4 star hotel. The room I booked was not properly booked and hotel staff had an attitude about fixing the situation. The elevators were tiny and one was stuck on the 12th floor.

My wife and two sons stayed here for a post New Years weekend getaway. The location is great; two blocks from Michigan Ave and virtually right across the street from the John Hancock Tower. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby and you felt like you were in the middle of everything, but tucked just a bit to the side on...

For your next visit to Chicago; please consider staying at the Raffaello Hotel. Located central in the Miracle Mile strip. Convenient off-site parking. A short walk to many shops and restaurants. Attentive, knowlegable staff. A great location if you are driving there. Do yourself a favor and "check it out" !

The staff is superb, the rooms are like being at home, location is perfect. The Drumbar is an excellent lounge with fascinating drink selections and knowledgeable servers. Next door to Pelago Ristorante for exquisite Italian, Rosebud Steakhouse and Mirai Sush.

Wonderful old building beautifully restored. Old Chicago at its Best. The plaster ceilings have excellent coffer and cornice detailing done by hand. The furnishings were a bit more transitional in style and character, but the style was very fitting and way cool. Bedding was vey comfortable. The staff was enthusiastic and you could tell they loved working there. Very, very...

We really enjoyed the hotel Raffaello. The room was excellent, clean, modern and spacious. Book your reservation directly with the hotel. The staff is very accommodating. The location is perfect for shopping and dining. The bar on 18 is also very nice.

Great weekend trip to Chicago to get out of town. Room was clean and beautiful. Views were amazing. 'Glazed and Infused' donuts in the morning were great. Easy access to Michigan Ave. Use the public parking across the street (valet) as its substantially cheaper ($35/day) and the same garaged used by other hotels for parking

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
