We chose the Raffaello since we were visiting Chicago in the summer and it was near the beach. The room itself was decent, but pretty small. The climate was a bit humid but we opened a window and ran a travel dehumidifier, which helped. The staff was friendly and it was fun having donut heaven in the lobby. However, despite... More

On the surface, all appears well: great location, top floor bar, good sized room, well priced. However, the entrance lobby is underwhelming (easy to overlook after a long journey), only two creaking lifts to serve all the guests, poor attention to detail with flaking paint in back of door, loose fixtures, terrible wifi (very slow), and generally dusty. The beds... More

Great location, room of a good size, with dividers between the bed and the lounge, which meant we could be more or less in a different room to the baby. Checked in early no problem and weren't rushed out for check out.

A group of us, 6 in total with 3 rooms, stayed at the Raffaello for 3 nights. The rooms were small but very cute and clean. The hotel was a great location. The best thing we did was buy a 'big bus' pass for our three days. They threw in an extra day and river boat tour. $50.00 per person.... More

Great place with great service, We had made a booking through Hotwire. The hotel helped us with a great room with extra bed as we were 4 adults. Room was great. Location was near everything we had planned to visit. Only draw back no swimming pool. Ida the lady at the front desk made our stay a real good one.... More

Loved the location of this Hotel. Felt safe, quiet, and clean neighborhood. One block East is Lake Michigan, One block West is the Mag Mile, and one block North is Very upscale shopping. (Prada, Coach, Louis Vuitton etc...) The Glazed and Infused Donut shop is Amazing and right inside the Hotel. Drumbar was very impressive on the 18th floor. But... More

One of the few nice hotels less than $200 day. One of the few which offer free wifi. (Saving about $15 day.) Self park available for $36 day which is big savings however it's a block or so away. Walking distance to Magnificent Mile, Hancock Bldg, & Beach. Overall satisfied with hotel. Elevator broke first day but was repaired.

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.
