“The perfect hotel stay!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

The Talbott Hotel made my four-night stay in Chicago such a great experience. From a warm and welcoming staff, to a clean and stylish room, to an excellent location - there wasn't a thing on this trip that wasn't "just right". There's even a hip restaurant connected to the hotel that serves a delicious, if limited, menu and a 24-hour diner around the corner that serves satisfying comfort food at reasonable prices. I was able to walk to the Magnificent Mile, the Newberry Library, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Chicago Art Institute. The rate I paid for this hotel was so reasonable that I double-checked the price I was paying just to make sure I wasn't mistaken. It's truly a luxury hotel in a great area of Chicago that doesn't skimp on service, amenities, or cleanliness. I loved it and would definitely stay here again!

A really delightful hotel that gives excellent value for the price. It is a relatively small hotel, an older building (1940s?) that has been thoroughly renovated and modernized. Great location, a block from the 'Magnificent Mile' and close to the restaurant district.

Very gracious and helpful staff. Well equipped rooms, free Wi-Fi, very comfortable beds.

The only disadvantage (which is entirely out of the control of the hotel) is that they have no parking facilities of their own, there is a very clean, bright, and secure car park next door but it costs $45 a night.

My wife and I stayed here 10 March for five nights, the welcome was warm & friendly, the doormen extremely polite & helpful.
The room very spacious, clean & comfortable.
Extremely close to the `Magnificent Mile` shopping on Michigan Avenue and to the John Hancock Tower, there`s a metro station just 2 blocks away and bus stops even closer.
The breakfast available at the hotel is rather expensive but don`t let that put you off as there are so many places to eat within a few yards!
My only gripe would be the hot drink making facilities in the room, no tea, average coffee, no spoons or biscuits and you had to wait about 10 minutes after making the first cup of coffee before the machine would brew another.
That said it did not detract from our overall experience and would happily recommend this hotel

Pros:
-Best service I have had at an hotel I have ever stayed at, the doormen are stellar.
-The Mac-Mini used as an entertainment hub was useful and so unique.
-Keurig Coffee maker was a big plus, we brought our favorites from home
-Use of the Equinox gym was nice, but they won't let you use their wifi and you won't get a signal on your phone because of its location.
-Nice toiletries and towels, very clean and modern bathroom.
-Great Gold Coast location.

Cons:
-The bed and pillows were pretty terrible, I felt like I was at the many budget hotels I use to stay at when I was in college
-Two elevators on each floor just didn't seem like enough, we were on the 7th floor and were always waiting for extended periods of time.
-Our view was of the building next door, we couldn't see anything. We booked on Orbitz so that may be the reason.
-The rooms and hotel don't look like they have been updated in some time, the carpets in the room were dark and old looking and the lobby didn't seem that inviting.

Wonderful wonderful service! Staff was the best of any place I have ever stayed! Great location with bars and restaurants nearby. Was an easy stroll to Mich Ave. Hotel room was immaculate. Try the Dublin pub that is a block away or stop and buy a Bentley.
