“Good Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

I was at the Amalfi for 3 nights. I was lucky that the tips i read here were correct. The hotel is on a good location, close to the Michigan Ave. Around the corner there are lot of shops, restaurants, coffees.
The reception of the hotel works quite quick, dont know why, but also the check out was completely uncomplicated.
The room had a good size, with a TV and DVD player, Iphone dock station... cosmetics from AVENA, bathrope, lot of towels, etc. Everything is very clean
The best was the happy hour: everyday at 6.00 pm! This is only for hotel guests. I read some comments that the food is not good, but this is not the sense of this. I mean, there are snacks: like cheese, olives, salami.. I mean, just for the drinks. The drinks were free. The atmosphere was really nice.
And: everymorning there is a breakfast buffett on each floor which contains: coffee, milk, juices, bread, fruits, etc.
I was really surprise about in in an american hotel.
Oh, the WIFI is also free. And the Fitness Center is not huge but has enough for training
I am sure that whenever I am coming next time to Chicago I will stay here.

We picked this hotel based on reviews from trip advisor. Husband has been a business traveller before and knows the importance of a clean hotel. Business people expressed the cleanliness ,helpfull staff, ease of a quick breakfast. They were not wrong. Very nice ,clean rooms,very helpful staff, great exercise room,nice breakfast, and an amazing cocktail hour.Location is the best, walking distance to many attractions. Harey Carey's , right across the street ,has the most amazing steak .

My wife and I recently stayed at the Amalfi with two other couples and had a wonderful time! The location of the Amalfi couldn't be much better; the proximity to restaurants, bars, and clubs provides a great base to explore the city. The room was spacious and clean. We loved the manager's reception and the breakfast service on each floor. Large bathroom made it easy for both of us to get ready at the same time. Highly recommend this upscale and sleek hotel and can't wait to stay there again!

Room Tip: Our room on the 5th floor overlooked Kinzie to the south and State to the east. No problems with no...

I just stayed at the Amalfi with my sister and niece (6 years old) while we played tourist in Chicago. The staff was amazing and hotel was the perfect experience. Clean, modern and I loved the breakfast service on every floor (lots of folks in their jammies grabbing a pastry or coffee. The nightly cocktail hour is such a great idea. How nice to be able to unwind after a long day hitting the sites. Nordstrom's is conveniently located around the corner along with tons of great restaurants and sites within walking distance. We had several special requests and the staff were responsive and fast to meet our needs. Would definitely stay there again!

I travel to Chicago for work about every other month for an entire week, and I always choose to stay at the Amalfi. Not only is it a great location with excellent rooms, but the staff there are nothing short of perfection. The experience designers are always helpful and welcoming and the bellmen are fantastic. They even recognize me now when I come to town because I stay there so often. The breakfast on every floor is great, and I always attend the happy hour. The price is usually reasonable, and even if I was going to the city for pleasure I would still choose to stay there. It's my favorite!
