Three long time friends met in Chicago for a girls weekend and we stayed at the Almalfi for two nights. The hotel was clean, trendy, inviting and staff couldn't have been friendlier. You are right in the middle of downtown so you could walk to restaurants, clubs, museums and the lake quite easily. The hotel is only a few blocks from the L so if you need public transportation it was right at the doorstep. The extensive continental breakfast was available on every floor so you could pick out a couple of things and head back to your hotel room. You will not be disappointed staying here.
