This was our second visit to The Talbott Hotel and the service was as outstanding as I had remembered from the previous year. Dwayne welcomed us again this year and made suggestions which we found extremely helpful. While the lobby is cozy and has great fireplaces, our room was quiet and luxurious with large marble bathrooms. Free Wi-fi, Apple TV, comfortable furniture, clean rooms, and attentive housekeeping staff. I loved being greeted by Charles, Dwayne, Gary and others each time I entered and exited the building. Gene from Concierge made all of our dinner reservations at our requested times and everything exceeded our expectations. The location of The Talbott Hotel is convenient and just a large block off the Magnificent Mile. For the week I am there, I walk to shopping locations, restaurants, the diner, the grocery, Starbucks and the transit system. Doormen will quickly get you a taxi anytime you request. The Talbott sets a high standard of friendliness and service that makes me look forward to coming back soon.

This was my first visit to the Talbott Hotel, but it certainly won't be my last! The hotel and all the staff were outstanding and catered to our needs and questions, Dwayne was extremely helpful and always at the door to help. The suite we had was large and very roomy and the white marble bathroom was luxurious! The hotel is very lovely and the two fireplaces in the lobby were welcoming. The location is about a block from the "Miracle Mile" and a nice walk. Can't wait to go back!

From the moment we pulled up to the Talbott, we knew we were onto something good. The bellmen, front desk, porters, were welcoming, gracious, and very helpful. Rooms are large and lovely; free wifi, smart tv, bath towels the size of twin bed sheets, and a very comfortable bed. The location of the Talbottt, north end of the Magnificent Mile, is good. Special thanks to Gene, the concierge, Cameron at the front desk, and Dwayne, the doorman. We shall return to this lovely hotel.

This hotel is charming and cozy, with generous (spacious) rooms and suites. We were greeted warmly and sincerely by Dwayne, who was able to help us with shopping, dinner, and breakfast suggestions--all of which were as great as he said!

Our suite was huge and well appointed, with state-of-the art electronics. The bathroom was also spacious w/ two vanities and separate tub and shower.

The Talbott is located close to many attractions in Chicago, and we will definitely be back!

We loved our stay at the Talbott! Our room was spacious, nicely furnished and very comfortable... Perfect for our romantic Chicago getaway. The in-room computer was a great amenity; it was nice to be able to access the internet and watch netflix from bed. The staff at the Talbott were very friendly and the lobby fireplaces created a cozy atmosphere. We look forward to returning on our next trip to Chicago!

I stayed here for 5 nights after reading the stellar reviews here where it is the #3 rated hotel in Chicago.

It was beyond my expectations, a wonderful classy old style hotel that is more technologically advanced than any new hotel.
Beautiful, large rooms with amazing beds/linens.

Every room has their own Mac Mini to use. I brought my ipad, but ended using the mini, a very nice feature. The WiFi is free with a very strong signal, no issues.
I was on the 16th floor and it was super quiet.

You have the use of the wonder Equinox fitness Center that is located under Bloomingdales a short walk from the hotel.
Every one was very friendly and helpful, I can't think of one negative thing to say.

Before you stay in a big chain hotel, research this place. You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Try to stay on one of the top rooms to avoid street noise from cars, deliveries etc.. Room 1609 was...

We came to Chicago for my wife's birthday weekend. Our stay at the Talbott was exemplary. Dwayne greeted us warmly and had great advice, while Ryan at the front desk took excellent care of us. The room was spacious, and what they say about the towels is true—huge. Each evening we would sit by the fire in the lobby and enjoy a well-made adult beverage. The location was convenient for all of our adventures, especially shopping on the Magnificent Mile, and eating at great restaurants. Terievis at the front desk helped us immensely on getaway day, bringing a very nice experience to a good close. Highly recommended.
