“Great Hotel in Chicago!”
Reviewed May 1, 2010

I just took my daughter and a friend to Chicago to celebrate her 30th birthday. We were 3 women on our own in a new city. The Amalfi Hotel was a great place to stay! We felt safe and were in a great location. We could have been closer to Magnificent Mile but were glad to be centrally located for the subway access and to all attractions south of the river. We had no idea where the hotel was but it turned out to be perfect! I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone. We were right across the street from Harry Carey's restaurant and never heard a sound while we slept like babies all night. If you want a very easy, comfortable and safe place to stay then this is the place. Loved it!

We can not give this hotel a better review. From check in to check out! Friendly, accommodating staff. Continental breakfast bar, beautifully displayed. Evening cocktails and appetizers again wonderful.. The Hotel is perfectly located in heart of city, close to everything and including some great restaurants. We tell all our friends with family in Chicago this is where to stay!

This is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are great, very clean. This is a pet friendly hotel, we took our small dog with us. It would have been nice for the front desk to be able to tell us more than "go left is what I tell people" when inquiring about where our dog could potty. Response should have been, go left several blocks and across the street to a dog potty area near trump Towers. Also, check out is noon and maid was knocking on our door at 9:45 even with the DO NOT DISTURB sign on door. Good thing the security bar was set on the door, or she would have been in the room with us while we were sleeping. We would stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the Amalfi for our honeymoon while on his R&R from Iraq. We made reservations and a couple requests, EVERYTHING met and exceeded our expectations. The staff were very polite and helpful, but the suite said it all, near floor to ceiling windows from the living area continued into the bedroom of our suite, a bottle of champaigne chilled to the exact temperature of full flavor. It was honestly like a movie, room service was great we didnt wait long for anything and they were all very helpful in recommending places to go and restaurants to visit. We are originally from South Bend IN only a couple hours from there and have been to Chicago several times, but never experienced anything like the Amalfi.

The hotel is okay but, for me, a little bit far from the city proper where the activities are.

Thank you for selecting the Amalfi on your last visit. I am sorry to hear that our location was not to your satisfaction. While our property is not within the city center, being only a few blocks north provides a central base to explore the sites that surround us – from the Loop to Millennium Park, Navy Pier and Michigan Avenue.

If you find yourself traveling near River North in the future, we would be happy to share what’s new on the scene from the many restaurants, clubs, boutiques, art galleries and design shops in our neighborhood.

We arrived to an all time high temperature on Thursday 4/1 of 83 degrees just in time to enjoy some drinks at the reception hour. I was impressed with the type of liquor they used in the drinks and the selection. The continental breakfast did the trick, we didn't go out to breakfast once in the 3 mornings we were there. Some may complain that it doesn't have a big enough selection, but the evening reception more than made up for anything missing in the morning. My only complaint on the evening reception was the crying kid in the small room. Yes we have a child and a little sympathy, but when your child is crying and everyone has to listen to it gets annoying quick. Leave the evening reception to the adults, the parents can always get their drinks/ food and take it back to the room to share with the kids.
Free wi fi was appreciated when looking for a place to eat, things to do, and which blues club to go to. The beds/ robes were comfy, the rooms were quiet. The building is only 6 floors high, so don't expect to get a fabulous view of the city. Rooms are on the small side, but the minor negatives don't come close to tainting my opinion of the experience at the Amalfi.
This hotel was a great place for us to celebrate our anniversary, we had an epic weekend in Chicago. We've stayed in nicer rooms, but the whole package is tough to beat and if you're not happy, then you might just be spoiled.

We had a wonderful, wonderful time at the Amalfi. It is so near to everything! We were happy to walk quite a bit, but it truly was close to things like the theater district, the Art Institute, and many of the must do pizza places.

The "front desk" is SUPER trendy and modern, but they were always very helpful. There was also a free happy hour with really nice, light appetizers around 4? I believe. We got to the hotel after a trip from Boston just in time for this, so it was a wonderful surprise.

We took the subway from the airport into the hotel area, and it was a LONG trip. However, we were happy that we did as the traffic outside our window seemed ridiculous and the trip would have likely been even longer.

The room was well kept and clean, with a very contemporary feel to it. Seriously. It was a WONDERFUL base to explore the city as a first-timer to Chicago. Would love to stay there again if I return.
