We have stayed at the Raffaello on many occasions due to its terrific location and small size charm. The staff is very nice, the rooms are spacious, and you can't beat the proximity to the Gold Coast neighborhood. Unfortunately, on several occasions we have experienced rooms that just won't cool off enough. The bed and linens are like sleeping in a cloud.....until you wake up drenched in perspiration. Not all of our rooms have had this issue, but it has happened enough that we are considering a change of locations for a week long stay.....in July.
