The Raffaello is located just a block East of Michigan Ave, so if you are inclined to shop, it's right there. If you like the nightlife, Rush St is a few blocks away. Good restaurants abound in the area, starting at Pelago, within the hotel itself.
We used to live right around the corner until we moved to Michigan five years ago. We wanted to come back "home" for a quick trip, so we stayed at the Raffaello. We couldn't have been more pleased. The checkin process was quick and efficient. The room was small, but very clean and comfortable. The rainforest shower was a treat.
The hotel staff treats you well. They text you when you get situated in your room to make sure everything is all right. When you are checking out, they text you again asking if you need help with luggage. Nice touch.
Can't wait for another stay at the Raffaello.
