The web site claims "A luxury boutique hotel located in downtown Chicago’s River North district, the Amalfi Hotel Chicago offers the ultimate in modern style and hospitality/For some, an experience is more than a brief flash of the extraordinary. Rather, it’s a brilliant assault to the senses that leaves you glowing for hours, days, even years." Well, the location is indeed excellent, just north of the Chicago river and within easy walking distance of most attractions. It offers a very good happy hour buffet. Our "Experience Designer" was very helpful at check-in - we also found that our room had external noise from air conditioning on adjacent property and we were given a choice of rooms for the next day and a discount for the first night. All good. However, this is not a luxury boutique hotel compared to our experience elsewhere: our reaction on arrival was disappointment at the décor and finish, the breakfast would disgrace many motels (stale pastries, boiled eggs that someone had peeled and put in one container, so goodness knows how many fingers had caressed any egg that we might have chosen, sugary packaged cereals) and staff service was sometimes warm and friendly but sometimes cold and perfunctory. So it's a bit oversold for the price. Overall satisfactory.
