4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

A good, clean room was provided in a well positioned hotel to seeing the area and is close to the lake. The lifts are needed but they are small and slow (very, very) - the lobby is also small. A nice place to stay.

This was my first visit to this particular hotel! I was traveling with my daughter, and my mother and father. We had a suite with a one bedroom bathroom, and a living room with a pull out sofa bed. I would not recommend anyone sleeping on the sofa bed. The sofa bed was so springy that I moved the cushions... More

Nice hotel, elevator slow, did I mention snails pace slow and it fits 4. Luckily we managed to get a room on the 8th floor so taking the stairs a few times wasn't too bad. This hotel offers no real amenities other than some awesome bakery in the mornings with incredible donuts, you must try them. The hotel staff was... More

Only stayed here for one night. They upgraded our room and it was awesome. The staff were incredibly helpful. The lobby donut shop is a must visit. Only negatives were the $66 fee to valet a car! And, the tiny elevator. Friday night the line to the elevator was 20 people deep.

We made a quick stop in Chicago. The Raffaello hotel was the perfect place for us! The location is great for walking to area attractions. The hotel is well maintained. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. The Drumbar is a perfect place to admire the view! Save room for a doughnut. You won't believe the selection at Glazed and Infused😄

The hotel is very well located, within walking distance from Magnificent Mile, convenient bus stops, restaurants and major shopping malls and department stores. We arrived quite before the official checkin time but a room was found for us without any obstacles; we even got an free upgrade to a larger room with a kitchen. This type of room has a... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood 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.
