Our room was a little run down but it had old Chicago feel within this historic building. Our room was on the 16th floor and the view was AMAZING! And the windows ACTUALLY open! Overall loved it! Happy

Lazy bell staff (not once was the door held open for me... instead, they would hit the wheel chair button as though they couldn't be bothered). Rooms are avg. The Drumbar security told us to wait in line despite us being paying guests in the hotel. Prices for the room service are outrageous ($12 for a bowl of Cornflakes?). Text... More

This was our 2nd trip to the Raffaello. The hotel is located just a few blocks from Michigan Ave and the beach. We were able to walk to mass on Sunday. King Suite was a lovely room. The bed and bathroom were very clean and the cleaning service did a great job tidying up each day. It was hard to... More

I had a great experience. The front desk was very accommodating and found me a room for early check-in. The room was great and my sleep restful. Definitely a keeper!My only complaint would be a slow elevator...

Decided in the morning to head to Chicago for a concert Friday night. I was not in the hotel much more than to shower, sleep, and turn around and head home Saturday morning. I didn't have time to utilize the facilities, go to the bar, or the restaurant. I will say that everyone was really nice and helpful. The hotel... More

Great hotel, close to the John Hancock building and Magnificent Mile. My son has autism and is very sensitive to noise, the hotel staff was very accommodating and gave us a wonderfully quiet room. We will stay again.

Wonderful place to stay. I would recommend it to friends. The sun deck could use some work. It would be nice if it was decorated a little. The staff was wonderful. The valet parking was wonderful and we loved that concierge texted us when our room was ready.

We had a conference at McCormick Place but decided to stay on the North Side of things at the Raffaello because of it's proximity to restaurants and shopping for post-conference hours. The staff was wonderfully accommodating, the rooms were large and spacious and despite having long work days, we thoroughly enjoyed Chicago, due largely in part to the Raffaello.

Decent hotel, but no good options for breakfast unless you want doughnuts - and then you have to wait until 7 am if you want a cup of coffee. I found myself going across the street each morning to get something to eat. The rooftop bar was overpriced and had a poor beer selection. Service there was bad.

We are sorry to hear that you did not have a pleasant time with us at the Raffaello. We apologize for the breakfast inconvenience as well as the service at Drumbar. I will be following up with the Drumbar management team to address the issue. I do hope you return to find a more satisfactory visit. More
