I was recently stranded in Chicago when a connecting flight was canceled back to the northeast, due to the blizzard. Using the iPhone app "Hotel Tonight" I snagged an amazing value at the Amalfi downtown Chicago. I've never seen the city and glad I stayed where I did. The location was fantastic - within walking distance to anything and everything you could need/want. It had a boutique feel to it, without the expensive boutique price tag. The room was large, bed and linens comfortable, and I really enjoyed the free daily breakfast. If you're looking for a great value downtown, check out the Amalfi!
