Location of hotel is excellent. Right at the start of the Magnificent Mile. Near and central to so much, including Rush St. and Michigan Ave. Room was fine, but bathroom was very small. Highly recommend Trolly/Double Decker tour bus in front of Hancock Tower. Good for 3 days and 1 price, but you see so much of Chicago!

Overall we had a great stay! So many positives - the room, the staff, and the location. The only drawback was we weren't aware of the price of the parking which was $62.00 per night. Not mentioned online.

Great all around; loved the suite upgrade. This is my new go-to spot in the city. Great location, decent parking nearby, Drumbar is fantastic. The only negative might be that the room service (sampled on a previous trip) is incredibly overpriced.

Always enjoy our stay with you. Make sure that we recommend your hotel to everyone visiting Chi town!! The staff is always very helpful. And if you can find a better place for a night cap, then the Drumbar, I would like to know where that would be! Ha!

This would have been a stellar experience but for the many drunks we encountered on the elevator throughout our stay (patrons of Drum Bar). This could be remedied by a designated elevator for Drum Bar and one for guests only.

This is a great value hotel, wonderful ambiance. Large room with good natural light. The bar staff were excellent and the bar is very well set up. It is close to museum of contemporary art and the transport around the city, and to airport is very convenient.

Great location for the price. Easy walking distance from anything on the Gold Coast and down Michigan Mile. Coffee maker provided but not coffee was a total bewilderment to me. Decent parking close by.

My stay at the Raffaello was good. Service was outstanding. I had a problem with my reservation and tried to fix it before my arrival, but booking.com told me that it couldn´t be done and I was going to get charged 1 extra night. But when I got to the front desk the front desk guy fixed it immediately, and... More

I enjoyed our stay the rooms really need updating and new carpet( floor repairs) and redo the drywall in the ceiling so any damage isn't such an eye sore. We had a comfy bed and excellent service thanks.

Location was superb! A few room type things could be fixed easily if they take time to look into the details of each room (lights, curtains, toilet seats) but for the most part, pretty good for the price!
