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.

Great location and donuts!

The hotel was in a great spot, located really close to shopping and dining, and the Sears tower if you get lost. The hotel lobby hosts glazed and infused donuts which are some of the best over ever had, but make sure to avoid going around rush hour before everyone goes to work )

Great get away

Booked our stay the day of, and even got earlier check in. It was great. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Although the valet is a bit expensive, it appeared my car was in a heated garage, which was nice to know. Overall, definitely worth checking out!

They didn't provide the room we booked

We booked a room with 2 queen size beds and they gave us a king and a couch and said we received an upgrade. I stated that I didn't want the "upgrade" and wanted 2 queen size beds (as booked). They stated that those rooms were not available. I expect to get what I booked. To fix the situation, they provided 4 free breakfast tickets (which was good for 1 donut and 1 drink). Poor customer service. Will not return.

Great first trip to the city

This is a sweet little hotel with lots of personality. Very clean, awesome location right downtown. The mini bar was well stocked, the towels were fluffy, and the toiletries were fantastic. The donut shop in the lobby is amazing, be sure to stop there. I really wouldn't change anything about my stay here and I would absolutely stay here again.
