Perfect location for Chicago visitors

We found the location of the Kinzie perfect for getting around Chicago. We walked for miles every day seeing all the sights. The room was a good size and comfortable. Bed was maybe slightly soft but slept well. However light sleepers should know that the hotel is only based on the first 6 floors of this building so rooms are close to the traffic noise so you will hear sirens and horns. Great customer service though and ideal continental breakfast to set you up for day.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Most Chicago attractions are within a mile walk of the hotel. However we also walked down to the Planetarium and Aquarium which is about a 2 mile walk.

Great overnight in River North

This hotel has a great location, a fabulous staff and has a sleek contemporary decor. The continental breakfast was perfect and right outside our door. The cocktail reception was held in an alternate location due to renovations. The reception room was small with no ambience but the staff and guests were cordial. Halls were a bit noisy overnight as guests returned to their rooms. Our room was on the 2nd floor and overlooked a parking lot but the view didn't really matter, it's part of the big city hotel experience.

Free Breakfast & Great Location, Clean and Comfy

Free Breakfast buffet set up on each floor is a bonus. Hotel is very comfortable and quite spacious. Gym is decent too. The free breakfast is a bit heavy on the donuts and a bit light on the healthy items.

In a touristy area close to great shops on Michigan Ave, although restaurants nearby are a bit mainstream. Go to W Randolf area for wining and dining.

We have stayed at the Amalfi Hotel

We have stayed at the Amalfi Hotel Chicago several times and always enjoy the experience. Their buffet breakfast service on each floor is undoubtedly the most comfortable way to breakfast in a hotel - you go out in your pyjamas, select what you want for breakfast and take it back to your room. Weak points - the heating system in some of the rooms is pretty noisy. Staff is consistently pleasant and helpful, and the evening complementary cocktail-snack is a wonderful touch.

My only niggle with Amalfi is

My only niggle with Amalfi is that they offer complimentary bagels and English muffins in the mornings, but toasters on every other floor. That's a bit inconvenient but is easy to remedy. Otherwise, a consistently nice hotel with good facilities, alert staff and a central location.
