We have stayed in many hotels over the years but the Amalfi has got to be our favorite... so far! The rooms are spacious and the bathroom is larger than most, and it is so very quiet., you can really get a good nights sleep there! Bed was comfy and the pillows were fluffy. We never heard anything except some street noise, maybe the odd siren, but nothing much more than that.
What makes the Amalfi unique is that they not only offer you complimentary breakfast (available on each floor in front of the elevator) of fresh fruit, cereals, milk, an assortment of pastries, bagels and toast and the best coffee I have ever had at a hotel... but they also offer Happy Hour which also includes Italian style snacks, breads, cheese, Italian cold cuts, roasted peppers, artichoke hearts, and an assortment of other things (each day there were small changes) and of course free alcohol, beer, wine, martinis and other mixed drinks... and there are some hotel guests who sit there for the entire hour and half, enjoying if not taking advantage of the situation...
The Amalfil is close to everything, and easily accessible by train from O'Hare airport, if your there for more than 3 days it is wise to get a 1 week pass from the Chicago Transit Authority, (23.00$) much cheaper than taking a cab and faster! You can ride the train and the bus on the same pass.
Check out the Amalfi, you will appreciate the quiet and tranquil atmosphere.
