“Our Chicago Home-Away-From-Home”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

My mother and I recently returned from our second stay at The Talbott Hotel, and both visits were outstanding! The service is remarkably warm and attentive... Dwayne took excellent care of us during both of our stays. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

As for the rooms, they are quite comfortable and spacious - the beds are plush and make for a great night's sleep. There is far more space in the room than in a typical hotel chain room.

Two hints: 1) Be sure to press the "Do Not Disturb" button next to the door before going to bed. (It is easy to forget since there aren't any door hangers.)
2) Check out the shadowbox in the basement. It is an artistic way for an out-of-towner to get a crash course in Chicago history. (From the lobby, walk past the entrance to the Little Market, go down the stairs, and the shadowbox is just past the restrooms on the left.)

We stayed for 3 nights and encountered a very polite sincere service and interaction with each and every employee.
The chef concierge Kathy was outstanding. Both extremely knowledgable and witty with exceptional sense of humor ready to answer every question, share her profound knowledge and keen on giving personalized advises. A Great asset.
The rooms are very traditional, it's a small luxury hotel with flair of days gone by. The bathrooms have been thoroughly modernized, all linens ( bed and bathroom) are luxurious as the toiletries that are provided. Outstanding modern electronics with mini Apple Mac that enables your surfing from bed besides recording your favorite TV show. The WiFi worked without snags, although some days it required to login again after hours of not being in use or past midnight. The Upgraded King room is spacious, the layout is very good, enough lights and the AC was easy to control. Excellent experience!

Various members of my family have chosen this hotel over the years and through several upgrades we continue to stick by it. The hotel somewhat miraculously manages to maintain a high degree of quality over the decades. Every time I spend a weekend there I know why I go back over and over. Professional, attentive staff; gracious surroundings; q u i e t rooms; cleanliness; convenience; value . . . so much for such a little hotel. The Talbott packs a hospitality wallop. It's my choice of hotel in Chicago and proves each time that it puts the Gold in Gold Coast.

Doing everything right.

Top Notch service in the heart of Chicago. We loved this small hotel. The breakfast restaurant was perfect ambiance with the indoor outdoor seating. Location could not be beat. The curtains seriously blocked out the sun - this was good and bad.

My boyfriend and I decided to take a long date weekend and go to Chicago. We stayed at The Talbott Hotel and couldn't have been happier! The room was very spacious and clean. What we loved the most was how quaint and 'boutique-y' it was. Reminded me of the Morrison House in Alexandria, VA. The hotel was a convenient walk to everything - the lake, great dining, shopping, etc. We will definitely stay again the next time we are in Chicago!

Room Tip: Small, Quaint, Quiet, Great Location!

Great location and wonderful staff make this an excellent choice to explore Chicago. Within walking distance of many attractions and good restaurants. Rooms are comfortable and large. Very traditional, don't expect glitz, glamour or a modern look. Enjoyed the boutique feel of this small luxury hotel.
