I stayed at the Amalfi for one week at the end of July and it was wonderful. I normally stay at good hotels (W, Century Plaza, etc) and the Amalfi topped those with it's very personal service throughout. The doormen greet you warmly on each return and the housekeepers smile sincerely as they offer bed turndowns and make sure the room is spotless. Every member of the staff seems to genuinely like making guests comfortable and that is what makes a great hotel.
The evening reception is a particular treat - I normally skip hotel "wine receptions" but at the Amalfi, they not only serve top shelf drinks made to your taste, they have a great antipasto - and I found my fellow guests a fascinating and eclectic mix. The Amalfi atmosphere makes these gatherings a comfortable place for a businesswoman travelling alone to relax and enjoy good conversation and a great drink at the end of the day.
The folks at the front desk also made a superb restaurant recommendation for me when I unexpectedly had guests for dinner - and got us a great patio reservation at the last minute on a Friday evening.
The beds are great, the ammenities top notch - and the shower is amazing. The morning breakfast buffet lets you grab a juice or coffee on your way out to meetings - add in the free wifi and you have a model of how a hotel should take care of business travellers.
Now that my company is moving me to Chicago, I plan to book occasional weekend "getaways" at the Amalfi just for the fun of being treated so very well!
