Planning to spend 3 nights in each places. Do suggest what to do? We a bunch of 4 couples are more into relaxed mode, party/chill in the nights and not much into museums or sight seeings. Budget is not a problem.

Frankfurtis more a financial hub then a great vacation destination. It is not bad, but I don't think it warrants 3 days. I personally would reallocate that time to the other cities on your list, or substitute Frankfurt for Cologne or Heidelberg, which are not too far by train or car. 

Berlin, Cologne are some of my favorite cities in Germany, along with Munich.

In Berlin, for a chill bar street checkout Simon-Dach-Straße in Friedrichshain. For areas to stay in Berlin, recommend Prenzlauer Berg.

Frankfurtis a historic city, which does not mean you have to spend much time in museums. Weather in May can be iffy, but most cafes will have prepared the outside patio areas to welcome you. Frankfurt, while one of the most important financial centers in the World and having one of the biggest airports imaginable, is still relatively compact to explore. The Zoo Frankfurt is exceptional. Unique neighborhoods abound, 'Sachsenhausen' is a bit further across the river and has a bunch of alleyways with pubs and eateries. Look beyond as well. Within 30 minutes driving time, you'll be exploring castles, even the Rhine River in Wiesbaden and Heidelberg.

Berlin is a totally different 'animal'. It is huge, it is historic, and interesting. But it is the architecture and layout in general that makes it a world city. Parks, water ways, and palaces (i.e. Potsdam in the outskirts). As with most (European) cities, there is always the opportunity to enjoy ethnic and/or cultural components. Restaurants seem limitless. Berlin is a bridge between East and west, after all. To me, Berlin is a bit of a fresh breath of air among the big cities.
