Chicago’s only completely non-smoking 4-star boutique luxury hotel has the best location of any 4-star hotel, just steps away from Michigan Avenue in the heart of the Gold Coast. The famed Magnificent Mile, is just steps from Raffaello Hotel’s front door, as is shopping, theater, nightlife, restaurants, clubs, Navy Pier, Hancock Observatory, museums, zoos, and beaches. Amenities include breakfast room service, 24-hour business center, 24-hour fitness center, valet parking, valet laundry, mini-bars, microwaves, rain forest showerheads, flat screen TV’s, in room safes, luxurious bathrobes. Every guest room is non-smoking as are the public areas validating our claim to being Chicago’s only completely non-smoking luxury boutique 4 star hotel, just off Michigan Avenue, the Magnificent Mile. Our newest addition, Drumbar, sits atop the 18th floor. Drumbar is a multi seasonal destination with a speakeasy style inside lounge and outdoor garden terrace.
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.

My daughter did her due diligence in finding a Hotel that would allow under 21 to check in....which this Hotel said they did. She was told by Expedia and reservations for Raffaello that check in age is 18. Well, upon arrival last night from Lansing...More

Fantastic location. Right next door to John Hancock tower. Around the corner from Mag Mile. We had a 2 x double bed room. Really big, comfy bed and very clean. The room was slightly cold, especially the bathroom. Only thing that let this hotel down...More
We were upgraded to a suite. Had a seating area and king sized bed. Good amenities, nice shower and thirsty towels. Small kitchenette with coffeemaker, microwave , fridge and some premium booze. No price list. Carpet needed cleaning. And stretching. But all in all it...More

Well our stay in a suite was wonderful and yes the hotel is due for a renovation,our housekeeper did in fact confirm that a renovation is in the works for next year. But overall any wearing out around the edges didn't affect our stay and the hotel's perfect location couldn't be beat. Keep in mind that big city hotels in places like Chicago or New York can be expensive and cramped even in the best case scenarios but we were quite happy with the Raffaello.... of course we aren't too fussy,so what if the carpet has a small stain or the desktop has a scratch? We always look at the overall experience.... our suite was clean and comfortable,housekeeping did their best to keep it so,staff was always cheerful and helpful and the location off the "Magnificent Mile" was ideal! So we would definitely stay at the Raffaello again! (And of course next year's renovation will only make it better!)
Enjoy your stay in the Windy City!
