“great hotel, great staff, excellent value - absolutely perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2011

Stayed at the Amalfi over Easter weekend with my wife and daughter. First visit to Chicago so we wanted a great location with easy access to everything. The Amalfi was perfect in that regard as it is right in the heart of Chicago. Walking distance to the Magnificent Mile, Millenium Park, great restaurants and coffee shops, and public transit. But what really did it was the hotel itself. We had a beautiful, spacious, comfortable room with 2 queen size beds. Breakfast is served on every floor - awesome idea! And the social hour every evening with appetizers and cocktails was great. The staff was extremely helpful with directions, suggestions, etc. Absolutely perfect stay and all for $129 a night - hard to believe!! One small note is that we used their valet parking and ditched the car for the entire stay. They charge $44 a day which may appear steep but in researching the area, it's well in line with downtown fees. Don't let this spoil your stay in this great hotel.

Stayed April 2011, traveled with family

My daughter and I stayed here for an extended weekend getaway-Sat.-Mon. We were impressed by the friendliness and knowledge of the staff , the fun cocktail hour and generous continental breakfast. The room we stayed in was well appointed and offered very good toiletries.The location was convenient to both the El and buses that took you to many popular sites.We would stay here again.

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.

Its been five days since I've left the Amalfi and I miss it with a passion. I loved the location which can is close to prime shopping locations, and the friendly staff. Although the Amalfi is situated in the middle of downtown Chicago you can easily walk to the subway and check out a different scene. I should also note that you can walk to the blue line subway from Amalfi that takes you to the airport. That was very helpful and I saved a lot on cab fair.

In short the Amalfi is an ideal hotel. The beds are comfy, free breakfast, and cocktails were, of course, a bonus but the convenience and exceptional staff make the Amalfi a top hotel in Chicago. I will be back.

Room Tip: take the blue line train to downtown chicago

We stayed at the Amalfi over Easter weekend and all I can say is "wow". I bowled over by not only the service but also the amenities, location, rooms and staff. It was a first romantic get away for us and staying there made it that more special. In fact it was a nearly perfect weekend thanks in part to our accommodations.

The concierge recommended some jazz and blues clubs nearby and even provided some coupons for us. Be sure to ask for t

I am having company come in from out of town in a couple of months and we will be staying there again.

Thank you, thank you, thank you

We got a really good deal at this hotel so I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived and it was so nice. The bedroom and bathroom were both large and clean and the bed very comfy. It is located right near the Trump hotel and just a short walk to the main attractions such as Millennium Park. We really enjoyed our stay here.
