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.

drumBar
Drumbar, on the hotel's 18th floor is a multi-seasonal destination with a speakeasy style inside lounge and outdoor garden terrace. Drumbar is designed to deliver warmth, style, and an energetic spirit of old meets new.
Pelago Ristorante
Raffaello is also home to the distinguished Pelago Ristorante by Chef and Owner Mauro Mafrici. Pelago redefines upscale Italian dining with a focus on homemade pastas and seafood. The traditions of Italian cooking from the North to the South of Italy have been translated with a local twist and modern cooking flair to create a contemporary menu for an outstanding culinary journey.

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.

Comfortable business trip

Arrived late in the evening, the staff was courteous and efficient. I was checked in without delay. The room was comfortable and quiet . Parking is offsite but only a block away which was fine.

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.

Great location at a good price

This was a very nice Boutique hotel -- we had a a suite 1605 with 2 17 year old boys. The sofa bed was not too comfortable View was very nice- parking was fine (a little hassle) the self park - was not really -- you drove to the ramp where it was valet parked for you. Just took a little more time. Roof top bar very nice - but we were a bit too old for it. All in all a very good experience and will return.

bachelor party

Deluxe suites were very nice and spacious. For some reason showers only had half a door, so we had to use a bunch of towels to dry the floor every time. Hotel is only 1 block from the lake and is fairly close to the red line. Right next door to the John Hancock Tower. Walking distance to a lot of restaurants, bars, shopping and the Navy Pier. Very nice, popular, upscale rooftop bar with a great view of the lake.
