When are you going?

I am on my way to Chicago next week. I am booked at the Hotel Amalfi in River North for a rate of $134 which seemed decent to me. The description and reviews (on tripadvisor) that I have seen have been quite positive for this boutique hotel. Rate includes some kind of breakfast and evening cocktail hour.

Anyone know this hotel?

It has been a while since I have been to Chicago so I am looking forward to it all. I second the idea of river architecture tour. It was one of the highlights of our last trip. We will try to see the Shedd Aquarium and the Chicago Historical Society. The Art Institute is always a must stop for me, but mostly I love walking, walking the city streets and the parks, along the waterfront, Navy Pier.....

I will post my reaction to the hotel when I get back.
