“The special gem in downtown Chicago!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

I will never stay at any other hotel in Chicago! The Amalfi Hotel prides itself in the likeness/character of the Amalfi Coast of Italy with its quaint and caring atmosphere and attention to all details. You will not be disappointed with your stay at this wonderful hotel. The staff is outstanding and really makes you feel like you are their very special guest for your visit. Cleanliness is top quality and you will not believe the wonderful beds in each room. A special treat is the incredible morning breakfast (FREE) and the nightly "Cocktail Lounge", again FREE to all families . . . children too. What a great experience and I always look forward to my travels to this wonderful city and my great stay at the Amalfi Hotel. You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: The staff is so accommodating so please just let them know you needs.

The facilities were very nice. The room was very comfortable, the fitness room well-equipped, and the lounge at happy hour hit the spot. You certainly can't beat the location, or going to breakfast on your floor in your bathrobe! We would definitely recommend this hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days and It was such a great experience. The breakfast was very thoughtful with healthy choices. Newspaper awaited me every morning, the folks that worked down stairs were very friendly and helpful. They wear these cool hats that make the hotel a place you can't forget. If you do decide to stay at this hotel look for a guy name Greg he was great a ton of help to me and my girlfriend.

This was a really nice hotel! Well decorated, super clean, nice touches such as bathrobes, makeup stool and lighted makeup mirror, etc. Convenient continental breakfast available. Some reviewers have complained about there being no place to eat (a large table with coffee urns, pastries, juices, cereals, breads, etc and all the condiments is available in the large elevator area on each floor) but my husband and I found it wonderfully convenient to be able to grab a coffee (or a milk in his case) or our whole breakfast and eat it at our leisure in our room. And best of all, 5:30-7 was Happy Hour with free drinks and wonderful antipasto - olives, cheeses, bruschetta, roasted red peppers. Great location!

Stayed at the Hotel Amalfi for three nights to enjoy a quick downtown getaway. Its location is perfect, just North of the River for easy walkability to most downtown and River North sites. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and the rooms were beautifully decorated. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

I can't say enough good things about Amalfi, from the expansive free breakfast each morning, to the extremely generous free FULL BAR reception with light appetizers every evening......I will never stay at any other place again when visiting Chicago. On top of the fact that it is such an easy trip from the airport via the train, and within walking distance of practically everything in downtown Chicago, it is also a very friendly and clean hotel. The rooms are fantastic, the service is awesome, and I think the value is tremendous. They have definitely done it well! I wish they had one in every city!
