“Another Great Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

This hotel is every bit as accommodating as any 5 star hotel. We have been staying with them for the past few years for the Chicago Marathon and will continue as long as we can. Every employee is gracious and helpful any time of the day whenever you might encounter them. The breakfasts are delicious and choices are plentiful. The morning of the race they put out fruit, juice and energy bars for all the runners at 4:30 am. The cocktail hour at the Ravello lounge is wonderful and ample. We look forward to staying with the Amalfi Hotel again next year!

I had a couple of emergencies when I arrived in Chicago. The staff helped me out tremendously with both. They were friendly and very prompt and detail oriented. I also enjoyed the breakfast served on each floor and the wonderful cocktails and appetizers every evening from 5:30 -7:00. I will definitely stay here every time I visit Chicago!

We found this hotel on Expedia and decided to stay because of all the excellent reviews. We weren't disappointed. The room was large and spotless and the beds/pillows were amazingly comfortable. It was nice to have good quality Aveda products and a bath as well as a shower. As others have mentioned there were complimentary cocktails and nibbles each evening. Breakfast was served by the elevator on every floor each morning and being able to stagger a few seconds down the hall to grab breakfast and take it back to the room to eat was great. No there wasn't a massive choice of food: bagels, pastries, yoghurt, cereal and fruit but it was more than adequate for us and everything we ate was very nice. The location was ideal for us as first time visitors to Chicago. It was safe and bustling at all hours so we were very happy walking around there. Virtually all the main sights are within easy walking distance of the hotel and if you don't want to walk then the "L" is a 10 minute walk away just across the river - we got the blue-line from O'Hare to Clark/Lake and within the hour we were at the hotel. About 5 lines pass through State/Lake which is also a 10 minute walk from the hotel. We would definitely definitely stay here again, this is a fantastic hotel.

I have stayed in the best hotels in Chicago, even the majestic Drake and the lovely Westin. The Amalfi is around the corner from the Westin, but has it beaten on all counts. From the moment of check-in, you realize that the Amalfi is different--friendly in a collegial manner, down to every employee. They are endlessly agreeable, an incredible value, lovely, clean rooms, and a great buffet happy hour appetizer mixer on an upper floor complete the perfect stay. They keep up with all guests via email, making you feel like a valued guest and part of the family. They somehow manage to be a business and family friendly hotel in a great location for both.

Room Tip: High rooms on floor offering happy hour buffet

During a recent visit to Chicago, I stayed at the Amalfi and found it to be a very pleasant experience. The location was terrific and very close to many great restaurants and obviously Michigan Ave. I'm a stickler for cleanliness and this hotel passed my test. I look forward to a return visit again later this year.
