“Excellent Stay and great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

I recently stayed at the Amalfi for our annual business retreat. The rooms were spacious and customer service was excellent! We were greeted by the valet as soon as we pulled up. We were early and they did their best to get our room ready for us and assisted us with our bags. We used their meeting room, which was perfect for or group. I was concerned about only having a continental breakfast; however, there was a wide selection of pastries, cereal, fruit, yogurt, and bagels. It was far more than I expected. I would definitely stay here again when traveling to Chicago - the bed was very confortable and the hotel is a short walking distance to Michigan Ave!!

We stayed at the Amalfi from Saturday to Sunday with another couple. We were both celebrating our wedding anniversaries. The hotel is in a great location! The staff is extremely nice. Both our rooms were "King Deluxe Corner Rooms". The room was a bit small in size, but it was clean and comfortable. The beds are really comfy!

The hotel has an evening reception for their guests with complimentary drinks (the Amalfitini is amazing!), and finger foods (cold cuts, cheeses, breads, olives, roasted peppers, etc). It was a great way to start our evening since we were having a later dinner.

Continental breakfast was offered in the morning, which was enjoyable, and was one of the better continental breakfasts we've had.

One small downside to the hotel is they only have 6 floors, so the noise from the street and cars is a bit bothersome at times.

Overall, a GREAT stay and we will definitely be back as long as the prices remain reasonable.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better the chance of not staring at a brick wall outside your window. Als...

The Amalfi in Chicago on Kinzie is close to everything. It is a few short blocks from the theater district. We also ate at the managers reception with a few soft drinks. (They provide meat, cheese, cold roasted veggies , brashetta bread and salsa, pickles along with many mixed drinks, beer , and champagne
We also spent the day shopping on Michigan and in the loop and it was very easy to walk to hotel after.
The breakfast bar was well stocked at each elevator with juices, coffees, breads, fruit, cereal yogurt and crousants

We stayed at the Amalfi from Friday evening through Monday morning. Room was very, very clean. The king room was very spacious & the bathroom was large. Our room faced Kinzie & we did not notice much street noise other than the occasional siren or car horn. Very close to public transport - 5 minute walk to the red line station, convenient bus stops within a few minutes' walk. We did the parking package and had no issues with the valet service. WiFi worked very well. Hotel was within walking distance of shopping & many restaurants. Contintental breakfast was convenient since it was on each floor. Staff were very friendly, as they always greeted us as we went in & out & often inquired how our stay was going. Would highly recommend if you are looking for an affordable hotel (by Chicago standards) in a convenient location.

A great hotel in Chicago central that is convenient to shopping, restaurants and theaters. The staff was friendly and helpful. Especially nice is the continental breakfast located on each floor; no fighting the crowds for your croissant.
