Kids and I (teenagers) did a quick two day trip right after Christmas for shopping and sightseeing. Bought a night at Raffeallo on Groupon. The place is clean and pretty cool. Room was nice and the location was perfect for Michigan Ave shopping and right next door to The John Hancock building. Both Navy Pier and Millenium Park only a...

The hotel is small and quiet - no street noise - ideally located for shopping and tourist attractions. Unfortunately did not get to try out the bar and restaurant - excellent coffee and donut in the AM

The Raffaello was a great hotel. Great location. Great staff. Great room. The room was decorated nicely, and the bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was nicely updated. The only complaint I have is parking. Obviously, parking is atrocious in Chicago. I would have been very pleased with the hotel parking, if they had explained the process. It was very...

Very nice hotel with a great location adjacent to Boul Mich and all it has to offer. Staff helpful even after checkout by holding bags until we left the area. Would definitely consider again for a future anniversary celebration.

We have stopped staying at the Westin and ONLY stay at the Raffaello. The text messages we received asking if everything was going well is a nice touch. Overall, we've found that the Raffaello can't be beat. Doughnuts from Glazed & Infused, the ease of getting a cab, proximity restaurants and shopping, the helpfulness of the staff and management all...

Our experience was very pleasant. The service was excellent, and I would definitely recommend staying here. I will consider staying here in the future. The room was a decent size and I especially enjoyed the doughnut bar.

Loved the location of Raffaello! We were right around the corner from Watertower Place, and it was easy to find a taxi for other excursions. The deluxe suite was perfect for our family, although the sleeper sofa was not as comfortable as hoped. Helpful staff and attractive accommodations.

Great hotel, conveniently located to everything. Staff very attractive and friendly, room was clean and attractive. Loved the waterfall shower! Drumbar was closed for a private party so was not able to view it. Glazed and Infused donuts are incredible.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
