This hotel is very reasonably priced for being in such a great location. Only a couple of blocks from Lake Michigan, one block away from Michigan Avenue, and a few blocks from the Chicago River. During our stay we were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to go. The rooms are very spacious. The rooftop terrace bar is a... More

The Raffaello was a great choice for our trip to Chicago. Right next door to the Hancock building...just a block or so off Michigan Ave. The room was nice and clean. The rate was fantastic. I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel. The only con was the room's temperature was hard to regulate especially it still being the... More

This was our final stopover in our three centre holiday in the US. The hotel had already been paid for as part of a package and was the most disappointing hotel of our stay. I checked the hotel out on line before we arrived and it all looked fine. However, when we arrived, the front desk staff on duty were... More

Conveniently located near great restaurants and shopping as well as many of the sights of the city. Very clean hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Easy and safe to walk to sights. Older boutique hotel with spacious rooms but smaller baths and closets. Nice bar on top of hotel with lovely roof top patio.

This is a odd hotel. Near the lake front and major shopping centres. It is well located and the rooms are clean and spacious. However, I got off a London flight and was refused room access until 4pm apparently without checking if the room was even free as this is the check in time. Not fun when you have just... More

Stayed at the Raffaello for four nights mid September - room 1503-Location to the Michigan Avenue the best! Within one or two blocks you are on the "Mag Mile" or at the beach. Close to all shopping and fine dining. Staff greeted you consistently with a smile and a hello. They were helpful and engaging, they cared that your stay... More

Surprised to see how good the location is. Close to the Magnificent Mile. Only thing is that the hotel is very old and you can see it. Elevator is probably towed up and down by hand, but it works. Hallway very old. Room large, but view on the back of a building. Very noisy because of the airco's from the... More

I'm still sore about how much parking is here but realizing that it's pretty standard for hotels close to lakeshore or downtown for that matter to charge that much ...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
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.
