I'm the type of traveller that errs on the side of bigger chain hotels, because of some hit and miss experiences with boutique hotels. But this hotel is a HIT.

Unlike chain hotels (thinking here Sheratons, Westins, Hyatts) where you need status, at the Amalif all room rates include FREE continental breakfast, help yourself, on your floor. Now I'm not talking lame breakfast, generous range of pastries (almond croissants, rasperry and walnut bread), cereals, fruit, quality Tazo teas, yoghurts. And all rooms include evening 5:00pm hotel lounge bar where alcoholic drinks and cocktails, antipasto and dips are served FREE. A great way to start your day, and kick off a night.

Rooms are clean, reasonably sized, cable TV etc etc. And they use quality Aveda shampoo/conditioner/etc none of that usual rubbish.

Our family of four stayed at the Amalfi Hotel from May 28-31. The hotel was within walking distance from many Chicago attractions, including the Sears Tower, the Magnificent Mile, and State Street. Both the lobby and hotel rooms were pristine. The complimentary breakfast, served on each floor, was very convenient.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, and service was always prompt. We were all pleased with the property and would happily stay there again.

We are a family of four and just spent three nights at Amalfi Hotel. The location is great. We were able to walk nearly everywhere. The staff was extremely helpful and answered all our questions. The breakfast was good and kept well-stocked. The rooms were beautiful, clean and comfortable. A great visit to a great city!

Very nice boutique hotel in a great location. The room was very comfortable with a great bathroom. Good shower water pressure and lots of counter space. Plus a magnifying mirror and even a little stool that was a nice touch. Much more space than I expected for an urban boutique.

Bed was comfortable and the linens were good quality. I like that they desk was a little lower so you could actually put your computer on it comfortably, and it rolled around so it was nice to position it where you wanted it. I could have used a few more outlets near the bed so I could plug my phone in, but overall, the room was very well put together.

The checkin was efficient and the staff very helpful. The doormen were really friendly and didn't make me feel like their hand was constantly out for a tip.

They do a breakfast buffet on every floor and it was MUCH better than I expected. It was great to just walk out and grab something. They have a cocktail hour that I never made it to - but will next time.

I ordered room service from Harry Carreys across the street. This is a great idea since they don't mark up the food, and it's great. They do add an 18% gratuity and a $2.50 service charge, but that's totally reasonable. And it was very fast. I think more hotels should do this, everyone does what they are good at!

We stayed at the Amalfi hotel from May 24th to May 28th and had an amazing experience. The location of the hotel was perfect. In walking distance to all attractions and train and subwayline. Great location for shopping as well. The hotel itself was very clean and welcoming. Great touch by adding breakfast in the morning on each floor. Rooms were spacious and clean and beds were very comfortable. All the employees were wonderful and very helpful in reccommending places to visit, tours and of course great restaurants. They offered us water, lemonade which was great on those humid days and most of all were very, very freindly. Many thanks to Chase, Hillary, Karine and all who work at the front desk. Oh yes, and thanks for all the special coupons. We would not have been able to get into certain restaurants without the priority seating. Overall an amazing experience. One last very minor deatail. Providing trays for breakfast would be a great touch! Just a thought. Thanks again for everything. We will certianly visit again.
