Menin Hospitality operates several luxury boutique hotels in Miami and a single hotel in Chicago, the Raffaello Hotel.

This cozy yet luxurious boutique hotel is situated right on Michigan Avenue and is located as close to the best attractions and amenities on the Gold Coast and Magnificent Mile as you could wish for.

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 bar that affords phenomenal views of the city and lake, it's easy to see why.
