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.

Old Town Art Show

We stayed at this wonderful boutique hotel in a magnificent location and were shocked at the value. We paid $157/night and learned they are the host of one of the most popular night scenes on the roof at night in town as well as an incredible restaurant. Most similar hotels would charge well over $400/night.

Best vacation so far

The hotel is near all the major attractions. The baseball stadiums were close by and was able to attend games at both. There are a variety of restaurants and shops close by that you will always have something to see and do. The room was clean and the staff was very helpful. I would definitely stay at this hotel the next time I travel to Chicago

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Rooms were nice and clean. Location is perfect, just off Michigan Ave close to great shopping and great restaurants. Loved the text messages from management asking if we needed anything. I would definitely stay there again!

Great stay

I was pleasently surprise with the size of my room ( 2 beds) and the cleanliness of the hotel. Receptionists were very pleasant and I loved my cleaning lady. The only unpleasant was my first impression when we pulled up with our car, the valet attendant wasn't very nice, but we got over it...
