Reviewed May 7, 2013

A girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for three nights in early May. We were on a girls getaway and enjoyed being able to walk to the theater district, the magnificent mile, and to many good restaurants. Our room was clean and a good size for two of us. We were on the second floor, which meant we did hear a lot of street noise at night, and as many have already stated, there is no view to enjoy. The continental breakfast was adequate, and we did enjoy a cocktail one night at the hotel, which was a nice treat. All in all, a good stay. I think I would have enjoyed it more if we had been on a higher floor.

Thank you for sharing your Amalfi experience with the TripAdvisor community. We’re delighted you and your girlfriends enjoyed your girls’ weekend with us! I’m happy you enjoyed our complimentary evening cocktail reception. I’m also pleased to know you were able to take advantage of our central downtown location and walk to all the nearby sites like the Theater District and Mag Mile! However, I do apologize for any noise disturbances you experienced. We do have quieter rooms on the higher floors and I encourage you to reach out to us prior to your stay so we may make a note of any room requests in your reservation. Thank you again for taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back soon.

Warm Regards,

Stayed here with girlfriends for a girls weekend in Chicago and it was perfect! Nice happy hour to get things going each evening we were there! Hotel staff, especially the concierge staff, were terrific and spot on in their recommendations for dining in Chicago! Continental breakfast available in the lobby on each floor was perfect to get us started each morning! Location was perfect for shopping, dining, clubbing, everything! Parking was pricey but in/out service was helpful. Loved the boutique, very European-feel of this respite in the city!

Room Tip: Our room was on the 6th floor right across from the lounge. Didn't really hear any of the loung...

Nice boutique hotel that is not the epitome of luxury, but clean, well appointed rooms and walking distant to everything I needed. Friendly staff, breakfast on the floor I was staying was nice. Simple hotel--no frills but good quality for business or vacation.

I have stayed at the Amalfi 6 or 7 times and have always had a great experience. The staff is first rate. The cocktail hour is a great way to unwind with free drink and great food. The rooms are quiet and comfortable.The breakfast on each floor is delicious and convenient. The location is perfect with easy access to the loop or Michigan Ave. You can walk to the theater district and many fine restaurants . We always look forward to a stay at the Amalfi.

Just stayed here 3 nights for a wedding, the hotel itself is in a great location its a little weird when u walkin however theres not really a checkin desk more an office feel with a few desks where you sit at to checkin. HOtel is in a great location u can be walking on michigan ave in 10min and basically anywhere within 15min thats touristy. Good place for drinks that was always hopping was next to the hotel called public house, always was packed everynight i walked by. Free liquor from 5-8 on the 6th floor in ravello lounge and not crappy drinks either, u get 2 per person per day.
