Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

Chose this hotel on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Fabulous location close to shopping and restaurants but calm and peaceful. All staff friendly and welcoming, including chambermaids and maintenance staff. Great bathroom with separate toilet, 2 sinks, separate shower and big tub. Lovely comfortable bed and linens.

If we are fortunate enough to return to Chicago, we will return to the Talbott

Stayed October 2013, travelled with family

Stayed here for a family weekend. Spacious rooms with all amenities. Excellent location to Michigan Ave and Rush street. Lobby has two fireplaces and cozy on a fall day. Bar and a great breakfast place attached. Very helpful concierge who reserved us tickets at Second City. Bellman also very helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor room.

On our way back to Switzerland after a 3 weeks' tour through USA Northwest we stopped for 3 nights in Chicago. We liked the Talbot very much and we were happy to have made this choice. Perfect location for sightseeing (by walking), for shopping and for many good restaurants. Our room was clean, spacious and perfectly furnished. OK, the view out of the window was "nothing", but who stays in Chicago in a hotel to look out of the window? The hotel restaurant offers a variety of excellent food and there is also a seating "al fresco". Ask the Concierge for good restaurants and special sights and get just the best recommendation you can expect. If you like a top hotel with a touch of yesterday (without being "moldy"), book the Talbot. We will do so when we come back to the Windy City.

We go to Chicago often, stay in different locations depending on what's going on. I had always heard great things about The Talbott and we were excited to check it out. Let me say...location wise; awesome. But, one of the first things I do when I get to a new hotel room is to open the drapes to see the view. Not here! Just a dirty courtyard, HVAC equipment...no daylight. I went to the desk to see if I could change the room...apparently this is just the way it is as the hotel is situated between buildings on either side. Only handicapped rooms have a view outside??? I had never read this on any review. Also, rather than a hanging indication on the door letting staff know to not disturb or please clean my room...there is no such thing. Rather, and I think it's awesome, a button inside the door to push indicating do not disturb or please clean my room. This should have been pointed out at the reservation desk. We were woken up early on Saturday morning because we hadn't pushed the do not disturb button (who knew?) And they the room wasn't cleaned until 6:00 pm because we didn't push the clean the room button. I travel a lot and know that the front desk is where you find information about your room and your stay...it can sometimes seem like it takes to long to get the information, but it's important. Talbott Hotel Front Desk Staff...please take the time to point these things out to guests. We will be back to Chicago, of course, but not back to the Talbott Hotel.

The customer service was stellar! Between the concierge, the maintenance staff and bell hops i cant even say who was more accommodating or nicer. The beds were comphy. The water pressure in the shower was good. If you are a woman with thick & long hair you will know why that is important. It was just an overall wonderful experience. I would definitely stay here again!!!!!!

Our first trip to Chicago and staying at The Talbott Hotel was the highlight of the trip. We were given a suite even though that is not what we reserved. The room was very large and so comfortable and decorated very nicely. We felt like we were staying in a home away from home. The location is perfect, within walking distance of anything you'd want to do in the city. The staff was beyond excellent! It is pricey but so worth it. We will be back!
