The Amalfi is just a five minute walk away from the Blue Line, and centrally located in Downtown Chicago, which makes using the public transit a cinch. If the weather's nice enough, it's also easy to walk almost anywhere to find entertainment, food, or museums that are very close by.
The hotel itself is nice; adequately large rooms, comfortable beds and I was surprised to find we had a mini fridge (which is always a perk). The reception desk was friendly and helpful, and overall we had no problems staying. The front door was also well-attended. One note: we did get a room that others have complained "looks out on a brick wall" which is really the side of another building. So no, our view wasn't ideal, but who honestly looks at the view for more than five minutes of their stay, anyway? It really didn't detract much from the room's coziness.
The continental breakfast isn't lavish, but it definitely helped cut out having to find breakfast each morning! Lots of cereal, bagels, donuts and pastries, fruit, yogurt ect. We didn't go up to the fifth floor for cocktails since we were usually out when they were serving them, so I can't comment on that. But the experience overall was great!
