I had meetings in the vacinity, and arrangements were made for us at the Amalfi for an excellent downtown rate. I have stayed there several times over the years in the past, and again found it bright, clean, the staff friendly (and young and attractive to boot!), the basic room well appointed and quiet. I recommend without reservation.

Spent a weekend in Chicago in September 2012. We parked our car on Friday and didn't see it until we left on Monday. Nice hotel in walking distance to many of Chicago's sites. Employees are very helpful and friendly. The nightly cocktail hour is a great way to start evening festivities.

The welcome was excellent and I found the staff to be friendly, prompt and efficient throughout the three days I spent at the Amalfi. Although the house-keeping was sometimes a little vague, my king room and ensuite were clean, comfortable and spacious. Everything one might want, such as a safe, an iron and board, or an umbrella, was on hand. The location is very good and an easy walk to the Miracle Mile and close to other attractions. The breakfast set-up on each floor was better than I had imagined and good for people who want to prepare for a meeting; have just come back from a jog; or want to return to bed with a book! The complimentary happy hour for residents was well attended and seemed to be an excellent meeting place for those who were staying as members of a group.

The Amalfi was the perfect hotel for our 4 nights spent in Chicago. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is in the perfect location for exploring Millenium Park, the Loop, the Mag Mile, etc. The room was nice and clean and had a mini-fridge, the only thing I wish it had was a full-length mirror. It was nice having coffee and a quick breakfast just down the hall from our room in the mornings. We went up to the cocktail hour on the 6th floor one evening, it was busy and had good atmosphere. We would definitely stay here again next time we're in Chicago!

Lovely well appointed hotel. Small but luxurious. Very romantic. Service outstanding. Only downside is trying to find it. Other than that it is very good. Celebrated our anniversary there and were very satisfied.

We recently returned from a visit to the Windy City and stayed at the Amalfi Hotel. I found the hotel on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. We were so happy with our choice. The Amalfi Hotel is in a wonderful location. It is close to the river, magnificent mile, and lots of restaurant choices. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice and clean. We had no trouble with noise and we were very close to the elevators. One of the best things is that each morning there is a small complimentary breakfast served right by the elevator making it extremely convenient. There is also a complimentary happy hour on the sixth floor. We would definitely stay here again.
