    Air conditioning and swimming pool

    The hotel was nice, but the a/c was not working. I understand these types of things are out of your control, but I wish I had been made aware of this when I checked in. The hotel did give me 50% off, but that was only after I asked. However, at time of checkout I received a bill for the entire amount. The clerk made the adjustment after I made her aware of it. I feel like everyone was charged the full amount, unless they asked for the discount. This is just wrong! The discount should have been given to customers automatically for the inconvenience. I failed to mention Chicago was having a heatwave the days I was there. The heat index was about 107 degrees.

    Hotel staff were excellent, from the desk to the bartender.

    Elevators too small to accomodate all the guests.

    The location is great in the centre of Chicago.

    The hotel was very noisy. The a/c unit is sound is very loud and you can hear the noise from outside the window, as well as people walking outside the room.

    Good

    We enjoyed the location. It is right behind Water Tower and at the end of the strip, so easy to walk to all and close to Navy Pier. We had massages and it thsoe were great. We had some issues in the room and they gave us a discounted rate and a bottle of wine to make up for the problems. Staff is friendly and so helpful. Parking is either valet or park yourself a block or two away and is a bit cheapier then other hotels.

    Our room had many issues. It was a nice suite from a distance but the toilet leaked, the ceiling was chipping and the carpet was soaked in front of the fridge. Also, the ac did not work in the room so it was hot and musty smelling upon checking in. It was kind of pricey for being at the end of the strip. We were a bit disappointed overall.

    Fabulous

    The location is great - right next to the John Hancock Building and minutes from great shopping and restaurants. It's also a short walk to the waterfront which is so beautiful. I went on a few morning walks along the waterfront to the Navy Pier. The hotel bar is small but very nice. We didn't eat at the restaurant but heard that it's very good. The room was large and very clean.

    We were looking forward to the rooftop patio and were disappointed to find that it was closed for renovation. The elevators are a bit small but that is likely typical of a boutique hotel. Also, the bathroom was a bit small.

    The location of Raffaello Hotel was perfect for our stay. We were within walking distance of the Gold Coast and Michigan Avenue shopping. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We only had to wait for a cab for about a minute! I'm staying here again!

    Breakfast is only served if you use room service. There are places nearby to get breakfast though.

    Car Vaket service was good but pricey - $50 for overnight parking!

    Hotel check-in folks kept telling me what they needed and not interested in what I needed - they completely forogt who the customer was.

    While I only stayed a few hours at your hotel, I have never met a staff at 5am in the morning that was as cheerful and interested in my needs. I have stayed at many, many hotels in my business and personal travel. I want to come back some time on a personal basis and bring my wife to explore Chicago. This was my first time to visit and I regret my business schedule did not permit a longer stay.

    The Pelago restaurant was the motivator for our stay. It is an outstanding restaurant at the money and the hotel location is sensational. We will be back.

    nice pleasant surroundings. great shower in bath. good location.

    Our room was rather small. It was extremely hot, the thermostat did not work. We slept with both windows open in Chicago, over New Years. We booked a shopping package and the coupons were mostly expired.

    The location for us worked but the bathrooms need more space for storing cosmetics, toothbrushes, The showers sprayed water all over the floor and is a bad design. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay and would return if the price stays lower as others in the area.
