Our family (my wife, 16 yr old daughter and friend, and I) stayed at the Amalfi on Labor Day weekend. I had found The Amalfi on TripAdvisor when I began my search for a hotel to stay at. The one big thing we needed in a hotel was a suite to give the teenagers and us some separation and privacy. We booked one of their King Suite rooms and it was just what we wanted. It was much larger than it appeared on their website and had wonderful curved windows in each room. While the room was very nice the furniture was a little tired however it wasn't an issue just an observation. The check in was very quick and the bell staff are wonderful. Whenever we had any question or needed local advice someone was always available and gave us what we needed. The morning continental breakfast was a great touch and sometimes we had to go to other floors to find specific things we wanted but that is understandable. The evening reception was just OK. I say this because I think they need to do something different. It is conducted in a small room with limited seating and dimly lit. If this is something they are going to continue to do I would change the venue. This is also the only area where I felt even a little bit of attitude by the staff. It cam on Sunday night and the person working appeared to be a little put off toward the end and while I understand that can happen especially when there is free alcohol involved it still should never come across that way.
All in all we would definitely return to this hotel it was excellent!
