I'm never shy about complaining or asking for a room change - so I was pleasantly surprised that the Amalfi Hotel offered more than expected. After a long Amtrak night, we appreciated the comfortable beds as well as the luxury of not hearing the guests in the next room flush the toilet. The breakfast offerings were substantial (unless you're the sausage gravy and biscuits type). The happy hour reception allowed us the opportunity to recharge. The staff was helpful - but not fawning. Even the windows were clean!
The hotel was centrally located to all the major attractions and close enough to public transit to venture beyond. This was our first trip to Chicago. We weren't surprised by the big city expense or the panhandlers - but we didn't know we'd find such friendly residents. More than once someone perceived we were confused tourists and offered directions. What is this - Pittsburgh?!
In addition to the don't-miss Art Institute and Museum of Contemporary Art, try swimming at Oak Street Beach, listening to the Blues at Rosa's Lounge, or taking in the archeological finds at the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago - followed by perusing the huge book collection at nearby Powell's Bookstore. So many things to do - so little time! We'll be back!
