The Raffaello Chicago offers well-appointed boutique accommodations with European flair, just off the Mag Mile. The hotel feels like a luxurious residence with spacious city-view rooms, featuring free Wi-Fi and kitchenettes with microwaves, Keurig coffee makers and minifridges. Bathrooms have rainfall showerheads and designer toiletries. Upgrade to a Deluxe Suite to stretch out in an extra living area plus a pullout sofa bed.

One of the Raffaello's main draws is its year-round 18th-floor rooftop bar, Drumbar. Featuring a roaring fireplace in winter plus an outdoor terrace, the speakeasy-styled cocktail destination was recently named one of the city's best rooftop bars by Conde Nast Traveler, features a wide selection of house and classic cocktails including a wide variety of Old Fashioneds -- and don't miss the signature cocktail of the day for $8 during happy hour.

The Mag Mile location is another big part of the hotel's appeal -- you're just steps from the John Hancock Tower, Water Tower Place and it's a 20-minute walk along the lakefront to Navy Pier; in warmer weather, you can visit the popular Oak Street Beach just a couple blocks north.

We were supposed to receive two drink tickers to Drumbar (reg. $15) each which was one of the reasons upon deciding to book this hotel instead of another one. When we arrived we were provided with the drink tickets but were informed that there was a private party there and it would not open until 11:00 PM. We stated we had an early morning flight to Spain and would be sleeping at 11:00 PM and it did not state that on the voucher. We spoke with the manager and he was not willing to offer us anything in place of the drink vouchers (like the coffee bar, etc.). We even called Travel Zoo who called the manager and was given the same answer. It does not look good for Travel Zoo to have something offered and then find out that it is not provided.

Travelzoo used a third party booker for a deal that did not include the parking they advertised. I could not see this on my confirmation but hotel supervisor was rude to me when I tried to explain how I booked the room and what my confirmation stated. Room was dark and old. Bathroom with no counter to put things on. Shower glass was only 1/4 of the way so it was cold and water got on floor.

Great value for the money. Awesome staff and a great location. Room was clean and roomy. And it was quiet which meant a great night's sleep on very comfortable bed/pillow/comforter combo.

The advertised offer of early checkin was not realized ( arrived at 1, room was not ready until after 3). The hotel Sent a text to alter me, it was ready, but we had already traveled to another part of the city. So we did not check in untiil much later. No coffee available in room (told at the front desk that they ‘ran out’) nor was there any coffee available in the lobby.
