Everything you need is at your doorstep, right behind the John Hancock building, cheese cake factory and right a block from all the action on Michigan ave and the lake. This is an all around good spot to stay at. We will definitely be back

I love the Rafaello! The rooms are spacious, clean and elegant. I especially love the oversized bathroom. The front desk graciously held our luggage so we could shop while they got our room ready. Sent us a text when it was ready! When we were leaving the front desk held our luggage and even charged my phone because I lost...

Pros: Location, comfortable room accommodations, DrumBar, price/value. Cons: Minor imperfections - i.e. sink stopper did not work, mini-bar did not have the items in it that it was supposed to, elevators were small and too few (not unusual to wait for 4-5 full elevators before finding room in one), business center use expensive,

The Raffaello is such a well appointed hotel. Each room has a stocked mini fridge, a microwave, a Keurig coffee maker, large screen TVs, adequate storage in the bath, comfortable beds, and reliable wifi connection. The location is just steps away from wonderful shopping and restaurants.

The restaurant was closed for a private party and the bar was so loud and packed we did not go in. I'm getting frustrated with this survey. Lighter blankets would be a good upgrade, i do not like feather pillows.

I decided to take a chance buying a groupon for this hotel and very glad I did! Everything from the price, location and the suite was perfect! We were a little disappointed that Drumbar was closed but look forward to our next visit.

Well my boyfriend rented the room for a night, it was my birthday and though we live in Chicago it was nice to get a night away. He purchased the room on Groupon and the price was great the hotel was nice but nothing that really gave it a WOW factor. A average hotel room with a lot of little...

Our room (#1012) was very uncomfortable. It was very hot and dry; so dry that I got a nosebleed the first night. We were unable to change the temperature and/or humidity of the room; the thermostat did not work (not sure if by flaw or by design). Furthermore, our room faced the inner courtyard/alley which meant (1) a nice view...

My family of 5 stayed at the Raffaello Hotel Dec 12-14. It was a wonderful experience. Every person there did their best to help us have an enjoyable stay. From being greeted at the car to check out everyone was welcoming and kind. The location is perfect. Just steps from Watertower and the mag mile.... perfect. We will definitely go...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood 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.
