“Amalfi Hotel - will definitely stay here again!!”
Reviewed 29 March 2010

What a wonderful little boutique hotel! I booked this hotel for a weekend trip for my 18 year old daughter and myself. We enjoyed a weekend of shopping in Chicago. The hotel is located close to the Magnificent Mile - just a short walk away. The hotel is very clean, beds are very comfortable and the staff is superb! Each day a nice continental breakfast is served and each evening a very nice cocktail hour is presented at the Ravello on the 6th floor. The staff did a great job recommending restaurants for us, Italian one night, Vietnamese anther and Spanish Tapas on the third night. This hotel is a gem --- next time I am in Chicago I will definietly stay here again!

My family just stayed at the Amalfi Hotel in Chicago for 3 nights. The best things about the hotel are: location, free continental breakfast, free manager's reception every evening with appetizers and drinks, comfortable beds, and quiet. A few minor setbacks include small rooms (4 of us in their biggest non-suite room was quite crowded), small lobby, and the view. The hotel worked great for our family, but it's not a very modern or elegant hotel. For example, we had great towels in the bathroom, but they weren't really folded. The doorman Raffie was always friendly and helpful but we would have appreciated more assistance from the front desk staff. I would recommend parking somewhere else. We paid $44 for the first night. The second day we found parking right next door (!) for $25 a night.

Thoroughly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure. Rooms perfect, clean & modern - couldnt fault them, very quiet too. The staff were all very friendly, the breakfast was perfect, easy & complimentary. 100% recommend this hotel to anyone.
The location is excellent to with some great restaurants & all the main shopping close by. We visited as a group & took seven rooms, everyone felt the same - we will be back.
The manager was also excellent.
5 stars!

We booked this based on other reviews and were very happy with our decision. It is close enough to walk to Michigan Ave and most of the restaurants around there, but also only a block or two from the river, which is nice if you are wanting to walk to Millenium Park or the Loop area. The room was comfortable and spacious, the breakfast was very nice and the evening cocktail reception was outstanding. I'm still dreaming of their signature drink the 'Sorrento Sunset'. Mmmmm.

We were there for the weekend and got the 1-day bus/train pass on the day we knew we wanted to go far around the city - it was such a deal...$5.50pp, I think. The hotel is in-between two train stops on the brown and red lines. You can only get the 1 day pass at certain places and the closet place to the hotel was the Jewel-Osco on State St. We would also recommend drinks or lunch on the John Hancock tower. As long as you are eating/drinking up there (Signature Room on the 95th or 96th floors) it is free to get up. I think it is about $15pp at both the Hancock building and Willis tower to get up to the observation decks, so at least with the Signature Room you are getting food or drink in return for the money you spend.

Recently stayed at the Amalfi for the St. Patrick's Day weekend events and couldn't have been happier with the amenities, location, and staff. Our car was quickly valeted, room made available hours before check in, of course we could walk everywhere, and morning buffet station on our floor with great coffee and crossaints. I would come again for sure.

This is a fantastic hotel. Great staff and amenities. Two blocks from the State/Lake "L" stop. Half-a-block from Harry Caray's and the House of Blues and walking distance from some of the best restaurants in Chicago. I will definitely return to the Amalfi Hotel and have already recommended it to friends headed to Chicago in the near future.

This lovely hotel has only six floors, making it easy to get to elevators and down to reception. The building is dwarfed amongst all the skyscrapers around it. Trump's huge new tower is just down the street. The Amalfi looks recently refurbished, very modern, but warm and inviting. Bedrooms quite spacious with lovely linens and very, very comfortable beds. Bathroom quite small but roomy enough, with Aveda tolietries and constant hot water in the showers. Continental style breakfast is set out fresh every morning in front of the elevator of every floor. Great to stumble out of bed and grab a coffee etc (robes & slippers provided) without having to get dressed for a formal breakfast. Really enjoyed the Managers evening cocktail reception, especially the Amalfitinis. A nice way to relax after a hard days' shopping! Location is great for all the shops, transport, museums etc. Easy walking to everywhere. Staff also very friendly and welcoming. Would definately stay there again.
