Top Reasons to Stay at Raffaello Hotel

  • Raffaello Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Chicago, a short stroll from the famous Magnificent Mile, a stretch of high-end shops and Michelin-starred restaurants.
  • The hotel's elegant guest rooms are decorated in warm beige and mocha tones and feature such modern amenities as Keurig coffeemakers, iPod docking stations, and flat-screen TVs.
  • At the onsite Italian restaurant, Pelago, head chef Mauro Mafrici has crafted a menu that ranges from lettuce-wrapped cod drizzled in black-truffle sauce to boneless roasted rabbit and housemade pasta.
  • You can sip craft cocktails amid views of the skyline at Drumbar, a swanky rooftop lounge outfitted with leather couches and a fireplace.
  • In the morning, head to the lobby for gourmet donuts from Glazed and Infused. The Chicago Tribune says the shop's eclectic selection is "so good it's difficult to pick a favorite."
  • Skilled aestheticians at SpaBar incorporate organic ingredients and essential oils into invigorating facials, massages, and body wraps.

Chicago's Magnificent Mile: Upscale Boutiques and Historical Architecture

On Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, landmark skyscrapers such as the John Hancock Center and the Wrigley Building tower over the city's liveliest retail corridor. In total, the stretch of high-end real estate houses some 460 stores, ranging from exclusive designers such as Armani and Chanel to beloved brands including Apple, American Girl, and Gap. Double-decker buses and horse-drawn carriages circle the Chicago Water Tower, a limestone icon that survived the Great Chicago Fire, and droves of shoppers navigate eight levels of boutiques and cafés at the nearby Water Tower Place.

Lake Shore Drive runs two blocks east of Michigan Avenue. Travel + Leisure called this stretch “the greatest architecture road on earth” thanks to the superstar skyscrapers lined up along the lakefront. Looming above them all, of course, is the Willis Tower (formerly known as the Sears Tower)—the tallest building in North America. Runners, cyclists, and runaway lawn mowers travel the adjoining Lakefront Trail throughout the year. A mile and a half north, crowds gather at North Avenue Beach during the summer to people-watch, play volleyball, and listen to live music at beachfront bars.
