We just returned from a trip to Chicago for a wedding, where we stayed at the Raffaello Hotel. It was truly a wonderful experience. We were traveling with two small children, so I was worried that the staff would be unaccommodating to us and all our gear (double stroller/pack and play/etc.) as the hotel itself is very sleek and posh. It was exactly the opposite, from the doorman to the bellman to the front desk/concierge staff, everyone treated us so wonderfully. They even gave me a rose on Mother's Day and a small gift to our two year-old. The location could not be beat - one block from Michigan Avenue, and literally around the corner from other hotels that were twice the price. Our room was spacious, even luxurious, with many amenities. We opted for a suite given our two children, and there was plenty of room for all of us (and the babysitter during the wedding). I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and we will definitely be back!
