My friend and I spent a couple weeks researching hotels in Chicago for my daughter's 30th birthday trip for 2 adult mother/daughters. For this trip, I was looking for a boutique hotel w/ a modern feel that had queen size beds (I was amazed that most hotels still have full size beds in their double rooms). Also on my pre-requisite list was some sort of breakfast. We found at the Amalfi, both a breakfast until 10 a.m. on each floor (!) but also an evening happy hour, that went from 5 till 7 p.m. The breakfast had yogurt, fresh fruit, breads, cereal - more than adequate. Happy hour had snacks, wine, beer & mixed drinks (high end liquor). What a life saver after a full day of shopping! Robes and slippers were provided in rooms, and there were several people wearing them to the breakfast area. Now to the staff: I can't say enough about them! From the inititial reservation to checking in, to help from the concierge, to the bell staff... they were all great. The attendants at happy hour were very nice (but busy!), and sent a nice surprise to our room later for my daughter. We've previously stayed at the comparable Raffaello, but the breakfast, happy hour and size of beds made the Amalfi a better value for this trip.
