U.S. News Review

If you're looking for waterfront views, then look no further than Raffaello. This trendy boutique sits about a block away from the shores of Lake Michigan on the northern fringes of the Near North neighborhood. Rooms boast a distinctly European ambiance with cream-colored decor and contemporary furnishings, not to mention Egyptian cotton linens, Keurig coffeemakers and iHome iPod players. However, the European influences don't appeal to everyone, with some travelers lamenting the small elevators and the design of the showers (which can end up spraying the bathroom if you're not careful). Guests do praise the friendly service staff, and those with kids especially love the Raffaello's proximity to Navy Pier and the John Hancock Observatory; choose the right room and you can see Chicago's famous skyscraper out the window. Though the Italian restaurant Pelago fares well among recent guests for its mouthwatering seafood dishes, visitors weren't as pleased with the lack of breakfast food. Travelers also note that the Raffaello's quality service and tasty eats don't come cheap.
