The Amalfi Hotel is down town in a good location to explore the City. The hotel rooms are large, clean and the business services offered cater for all scenarios. The staff are friendly and helpful, always putting the guest first, excellent service. Definitely use again and recommend most highly.

Just about to check out of the Amalfi, and have thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It's in the perfect location for exploring Chicago on foot, quiet, safe, and with a boutique hotel charm. We really enjoyed the complimentary cocktail reception every evening - it was fun to chat with other hotel guests and relax a bit before heading off for dinner....

Amalfi lived up to its excellent reviews. The room was what you would expect from a first-rate hotel. The location is excellent-- just on the River North side of the river; close to both Michigan Avenue and the Loop. The set-up of the service desk was an attempt at something new, and it sort of works...chairs across a desk rather...

My husband and I stayed here during our ten year anniversary celebration. The room was clean and overlooked Kinzie Avenue. So it was a little loud at times with horns and the occasional siren, but not bad (this is downtown Chicago, after all). By far the most enjoyable part of our stay was the happy hour each night with 2...

The location is excellent, close to the train from the airport and to sights and shops. The beds were very comfortable. Overall, the hotel was modern and clean. The staff was friendly.

We were very pleased with our visit to Chicago, staying at Amalfi. We frankly were a little put off in advance by the forceful language in the payment-in-advance agreement.
