It was my first visit to Chicago, and glad I picked the Amalfi. Location was great, near Magnificent Mile for shopping, and within 20min walk of major tourist places (Millennium Park, John Hancock tower, Navy Pier etc). Great places to eat close by, runs parallel to Hubbard St.
Staff were extremely helpful, providing me with maps and tourist info.
Complimentary breakfast served every floor, had to take back to room to eat, but nice touch. Nightly reception on 6th floor (between 5.30 to 7pm), given vouchers for 2 free drinks per night.
My room was on 4th floor at back, view over street, relatively quiet. Room was OK in size, bed comfortable, temperature control was handy. Bathroom OK too, Aveda products were great. Kept very clean, though it wasn't cleaned until after 5pm on first day.
Lobby is fairly small but comfortable.
Would definitely recommend it, and will stay there again, great value though understand hotel is being renovated and renamed in March 2014 (Kinzie Hotel), so hope price doesn't rise too much.
