Great night away with a friend!

My friend and I arrived earlier than check-in time (which is 4pm) on a Thursday. We asked if they had any rooms available early. The hotel employee at the front desk, Jeneline, told us that for $30 we could check-in early. I also told her that my reservation was for two double beds. She said that they didn't have any double bed rooms available. I showed her my confirmation, stating double beds. She said that since I booked through a travel company (O) that they couldn't accommodate us. It wasn't a very friendly start to our stay or experience with Raffaello Hotel. We had our luggage held for us. The bellmen were very nice and helpful. Then once we came back to check in our room, a different hotel employee, Sean, was more than pleasant and accommodating. He even gave us an upgrade. The suite was spacious, clean and perfect! Great overall experience and stay.

Good location in Magnificent Mile

Good location (next to John Hancock Tower) and value for money. Room size is also good, but the bed was too soft for us. The lobby and lift were small and always crowded (lift also a bit too slow). Parking rate is affordable compare to other hotels in the area. So park your car in the hotel garage and walk along the Magnificent Mile as parking is extremely expensive in downtown Chicago.

Great Location

Average size room. Very small toilet. Door to the bathroom would stick. Very small elevators. No concierge in evidence. In our friends' room, the phone did not work.

The Hancock Building is next door. Instead of going to their observation deck for the view at night, go to their bar (2 stories higher). Use your money for the deck on a drink instead.
