I selected this hotel based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor from a list available for our convention. Unfortunately, I was sorely disappointed in the hotel. I agree with the reviewer who said it was not 4 star. Although the personnel were very nice and the location convenient, the accommodations were at best average. The infrastructure is old with a cosmetic layer of boutique on top. The carpet in our room sorely needed cleaning, the furniture was banged up along the bottom - just a general aura of overuse and no updating. The finish on drain ring in the bath sink was corroded, both the sink and bath faucets worked backwards, and the drain in the tub was so slow that we were standing ankle deep in water at the end of a shower. That problem was corrected. Breakfast selections, while adequate for continental, were not kept full during the breakfast hours. On Sunday we (and many other guests) had to hunt on different floors for enough to eat at 8:30am. At 9am suddenly the selections were being refreshed. Too late for us. Amalfi is off our list of Chicago hotels. The Talbot is my idea of a real boutique hotel in Chicago.
