From the moment we opened the door we were delighted. Tasteful modern furnishings and decor, spotlessly clean floors and walls,quality linens and small amenities that made our small but well laid out room a relaxing haven after a day of shopping and museums. Could not have asked for more and were delighted by the reasonable price. We have a new...

The reception, we found, a little strange. It just didn't seem to fit with the hotel at all. Very narrow and more budget motel looking. However, the room was perfectly fine. Had a very comfy bed, good shower and a good size. The only long mirror was up a corner behind a cupboard so completely useless. Sockets in short supply...

Stayed at the Raffaello for two nights whilst visiting Chicago. The hotel is in an older building so has plenty of character. The lobby is small but perfectly formed with a Glazed and Infused concession - seriously good donuts! Our room was large considering this is a city center hotel and included all amenities. The bathroom was a little on...

Reasons to choose this hotel: Location: its right next to the Hancock Centre and all the shops on Michigan Avenue. The bar: The Drumbar is on the 18th floor and has a roof terrace if you're visiting in the summer. You can't charge drinks to you're room so I guess it is not owned by the hotel but it is...

We enjoyed the ambience of an older building outfitted as a hotel. We rented the Grand Suite for four nights for myself, my wife and our 17-year-old son. The suite was spacious, and had large flat-screen TVs. The bathroom was well-equipped, but small, due to the limitations of an older building; not a problem for us. Staff were consistently courteous...

Went to Chicago for my birthday. We rented two king rooms. This hotel is older but a real gem in a great location. Room was a bit stuff at times. Parking is expensive but a really nice hotel overall. I loved the character of the building as its an old boutique style hotel not some new chain. Rooms were super...

Great little getaway, extremely clean and excellent staff! Location is easy walking distance from Mag Mile. Make sure you have an extra $100 to hold the room until checkout, it was unexpected. I forgot toothpaste and they sent some to my room immediately. I plan on staying here again

The hotel has a great location - right at the city center. During my visit, the rooms were very clean and the staff was very helpful. There is a great bar at the top floor - ranked as one of the best in Chicago. The pricing was great!

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.
