Hidden European flair GEM

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 28, 2011

This gem of a European boutique-style hotel is truly so wonderful. You are greeted at street entrance by a uniformed doorman and into the elegant lobby which is tastefully decorated and full of light and flowers. Comfy seating and a cheerful atmosphere make this a desirable place to just sit and relax, read, or have a drink. The staff are friendly and courteous.
On the main level of the hotel is a mini bar and next door is the Pelago restaurant, which serves great food in a luxurious atmosphere. The Pelago also has an outdoor patio where you can dine. Summertime finds the exterior of both the hotel and the restaurant vibrant with colorful flower beds. Even European style flower boxes adorn the windows.

Both sides of Delaware Street , which leads west to Michigan Avenue, are lined with both small boutique restaurants with indoor or weather-permitting outdoor dining and the larger hotels with their typical dining room and specialty Sunday Brunch. The Raffeallo is located just next door to the Hancock and is only 2 blocks off Michigan Avenue. You can walk out the front door of the Raffaello and be on Michigan Avenue withing 3-4 minutes. Catching a bus is a snap, since many of them stop right there at Delaware and Michigan.

Unique Quality: You have many choices of room styles. The usual double, double and double, and king sized room selections are available and each offers large bathrooms , soft and comfy terry bathrobes, the finest bath and beauty products, desks, hair dryers, a mini bar, refrigerator, microwave, and safe. The beds are furnished with up-to-date linens which are highest quality and enticing for easy sleep. There is a well-equipped gym on the second floor and a spa and massage room also. The rooftop offers an excellent option for those who wish to glimpse a city-wide view or even have their own private "wine and cheese' party for guests. While we were there, the rooftop was closed but we were told it should open sometime mid-summer.
The lobby is a sun-filled and cheery place to sit on the comfortable furniture and read a book, people watch, or just enjoy the fresh flowers and greenery. Tall paladium windows on the west side of the lobby are beautiful and bring in the sunshine. Elegance and class....all wrapped up in this Raffaello Hotel.

Directions: North end of the Magnificent Mile, one block east of Michigan Avenue. Next to the Hancock building.

Rafaello - Newly Renovated

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 23, 2008

For our second weekend in downtown Chicago during our US trip we looked on various hotel booking websites for something with a good quality, good location and a reasonable price. Thanks to a special offer on Expedia we booked a King Size room at Rafaello for a little over $100. Even better, when checking in we were offered a complimentary upgrade free of charge, and checked in to a suite!

The hotel is located at 201 East Delaware Place, which is just behind the Hancock building, very close to the north end of Michigan Avenue. It's a good location, close to the main shopping area and many restaurants.

We had a suite on the 17th floor which was spacious, stylish and modern. The view was not fantastic, overlooking a Hilton hotel and an apartment building. The suite consisted of 2 rooms, a lounge, bedroom and a bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, with more pillows than you could shake a stick at. The bathroom was small but pleasant, with a great shower! Nice amenities were bath robes, an alarm clock with MP3 player, 2 x LCD TVs, and a personal shoe polishing machine!

Highly recommended, a good quality, reasonably priced, well located hotel.
