We booked this hotel after hearing of it through a Southwest Airlines email and were very satisfied. Unlike what other reviewers stated, the elevator was just fine and worked faster than the one at my office. The room was super clean. Large, flat screen TV worked great. Amazing shower with great water pressure. It's a two minute walk to the Magnificent Mile and three blocks from the Red Line subway to get everywhere else. It was our first time to Chicago and we had a great time. The Raffaello was a perfect anniversary trip hotel. I'd highly recommend looking online and calling the hotel directly (what I did) for lower rates than what is on their site.
