We went to Chicago for a few days and this hotel was fab. It is right next door to the John Hancock building. The staff were very helpful and nice. Our room was very clean and when we left a note for more coffee to be left the next day by the cleaner we had more than enough left for...

I recently stayed at this wonderfully located boutique hotel and had a disappointing experience. This was our second time at the Raffaello and had great memories of our previous stay. Fantastic location next to the Hancock Building just off Michigan Ave, close to amazing restaurants and, of course, shopping. The only issue I remember from the last time was difficulty...

The good: Clean, quiet, great location and price though Trivago. The bad: Elevators are too tiny since it was probably an apt building but I wouldn't know for sure. The ugly: I couldn't find anything really wrong with this hotel. If you want a pretty good low cost meal in the neighborhood, check out the Tempo Cafe, a Greek restaurant...

I just spent one night at this hotel, and I was amazed by the building, large rooms and a nice location. You are just steps away from the lake and from Magnificent Mile. This hotel is in the heart of Chicago. It´s the perfect location to enjoy this beautiful city.

I have stayed here the past seven years as I have traveled for business. Great location and great rooms. The rates on these rooms are very reasonable for the rooms which is why I always choose to stay here.

I would say it was an above average stay. Room was nice and clean but carpet was stained. Tiny elevators make for some cozy trips up and down. Good location with great price based on others in the area

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.
