“Fantastic hotel, excellent value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2011

I stayed at the Amalfi Hotel for 3 nights with my friend. We were very impressed, and pleasantly surprised with the quality of this hotel. The room was a good size, and the beds clean and very comfortable. They also provide free Wi-Fi access and provide an alarm clock which has an integrated I-pod dock. Breakfast was great, and the cocktail lounge provided pretty much any drink you can think off. The location of the hotel is excellent, views from our room included the newly built Trump International Hotel, and Harry Carays restaurant was just across the street. All in all, a fantastic hotel, with great facilities and friendly helpful staff.

We were not originally set to stay at the Amalfi, however the hotel we had planned to stay at inadvertently cancelled our reservation without notice (on New Years Eve at that) and the Amalfi came to our rescue. The front desk manager went out of her way to help us get checked in and settled, knowing what we'd been through. The room was nice, the breakfast on each floor was delicious, we enjoyed our stay and were in walking distance of Michigan Ave. Thanks to the Amalfi for saving our trip to Chicago!

We've stayed here before and really like the location. Very convenient for shopping and dining options. Value is rated high, since I got the king room booked at $99/night. My wife enjoys the continental breakfast since it's set up on EACH FLOOR of the hotel. No need to go down to the lobby.

HIGHLY recommend the Amalfi Hotel in Chicago. It is a stylish boutique hotel that has a great location with easy walking distance to downtown or the shopping district. The service was always friends and top class. Super clean - the bathroom was nice with lots of room - the beds were SOO Super comfortable. I will be using this hotel again in 2011 and look forward to staying again.

One of the neatest things I have seen is that breakfast was served on each floor. I could simply walk out get my food and return to my room to eat with out getting dressed up for breakfast -*Thumbs up*

Have stayed here several times now. good location, even in the winter. Very comfortable beds,quiet clean rooms,large bathroom,flat screen tv,bathrobes and slippers good for people like me who travel as lightly as possible. The things that make this hotel special is the evening reception with snacks and drinks, and the morning continental expanded breakfast served on each floor seperately. Free wireless is always a wonderful thing, as is their business center that is open for your use 24 hours. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to chicago, it is close to Merchandise Mart if you are headed in that direction. There is also a very reasonable parking garage about 2 blocks away Sterling parking garage on the corner of LaSalle & Kinzie. My last stay was a special offered on the hotels web site for $99 for 4 of us, so felt that we got a very good bargain. There is nothing about this hotel that I disliked.

We had a really wonderful stay at the Amalfi Hotel in Chicago. We chose the hotel for our annual shopping weekend, and we were not disappointed. The location was close to many stores, in a very progressive neighborhood with many restaurants. The hotel provides breakfast each morning and a Happy Hour each evening. Both are not to be missed!
