Menin Hospitality operates several luxury boutique hotels in Miami and a single hotel in Chicago, the Raffaello Hotel. This cozy boutique hotel is situated right on Michigan Avenue, very close to some of the most celebrated attractions and amenities on the Gold Coast and Magnificent Mile. From its highly-rated rooftop lounge to its impeccably appointed rooms and suites, the Raffaello is a definite standout in a city known for its incredible accommodations. What the Raffaello lacks in size, it more than makes up for in amenities. Drumbar, its speakeasy-style rooftop lounge, was dubbed 'the best new bar in America' by Details Magazine. With its intimate seating, wood paneling, crackling fireplace and a bar that offers sensational views of the city and lake, it's easy to see why.

Location
Raffaello Hotel is located in the heart of Chicago's Magnificent Mile, so there's no need to grab a cab to enjoy the best shopping and dining in the city. Exciting attractions like the Hancock Building, Millennium Park, Navy Pier, the Lincoln Park Zoo and North Avenue Beach are easily accessible on foot, and the vibrant nightlife and restaurants of Rush Street are also within easy walking distance.

Excellent hotel!

Rooms were very clean and had plenty of space. The roof top bar has some great views and is a very popular night spot. Lots of great restaurants and bars within walking distance.

Raffaello Wins

I got a suite with 20 promo code, for my family including teens. We were satisfied with the room and even more satisfied with the location of the hotel. Oak Street beach is about 15 mins walk away, & 7 storey mall(good place for breakfast) is 5 mins walk, Navy Pier was about 20 mins walk. And Magnificent Mile is right there, so you can walk all the way down as far as you can go. Bus & train was fairly easy to use. Rafaello provided a roll away cort bed, and advised it was first come first serve, and provided it in a timely manner. I left my phone charger and they mailed it back, at my offer to incur the cost. Service was good enough, and the room was also good enough. Rooftop bar seemed to be popular spot in the city. Elevator is small & slow, but we dealt with it & enjoyed walking down on some occasions.

Great time in Chicago

Very nice, comfortable room. Staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. Fabulous location! Within easy walking distance, or easy access to bus transportation to anywhere we wanted to go in downtown Chicago! Very good time . We certainly would go back!

Amazing Location

This hotel was in the best location possible for my needs. I wanted to explore all downtown Chicago had to offer. I purchased the GoChicago card and was afraid I wouldn't be able to see everything offered on the card on two days or I'd spend a ton on cabs and Ubera. Well, because Of this hotels location I only used an Uber twice!! Was able to walk everywhere and saw all 25 attractions on my list. Service- called the front desk for fresh towels and after waiting over 2 hours (said they'd be right up) I called again only to get someone else saying they were sent up already and to check outside our door. Well I checked and no towels so after my third attempt I had to go downstairs myself and wait for them there. One night we wanted room service we called for about 30 minutes only to get a busy signal each time. We called the front desk and were told they would contact room service and have them call our room. Well an hour goes by and nothing. The hotel staff gives your a number to text if you need anything so I text them the situation only to get a non sympothetic response back hours later after we had already jumped through hoops with the front desk to get the situation resolved. The bell men were very.

bachelorette weekend

Good! Only issue is that the elevators are incredibly small and slow - a long queue built up on Saturday night, and we were stuck in the lobby for 10-15 minutes waiting to get up.

Great Hotel, Clean Rooms

Hotel met my expectations. Rooms are nice and very clean. Hotel staff is extremely helpful and professional. The hotel itself is in a great location. Just minutes away from restaurants, shopping, city attractions and the lakefront. Would highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure.
