“Location!”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

The location was perfect; just 2 blocks from Michigan and a short distance from very high end shopping/Gold Coast. The Little Market restaurant attached was a great place to start the day, and enjoy some refreshing beverages! We had an executive king close to the elevator (which I typically abhor) and facing the street. I thought it was going to be very noisy, but hallway noise was worse than either of those and, luckily, we had mostly thoughtful neighbors that didn't keep the conversation going too long. Our room was really big and comfortable, and the Mac mini was a great addition. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

What a fantastic hotel! Everyone, from the doormen to the front desk employees to the concierge to the housecleaners, are very professional, efficient and friendly. The rooms themselves are immaculate and of the highest standards. Bed linens, towels, TV, furniture, complimentary robes/slippers, etc. are first class all the way. Guests have access to the top rated Equinox Fitness Center, located two blocks away on the world renowned Magnificent Mile of Michigan Ave. A very nice restaurant & bar is also located on the premises, serving healthy choices as well as American classics. All-in-all, this hotel deserves a FIVE star rating, not four. WIll definitely stay here again if I'm ever back in Chcago... which I plan on being.... wonderful city!!

I was in Chicago for a reunion weekend and chose the Talbott for its location. It is a charming old world hotel that has been recently renovated. I booked the B&B package which offered me a wonderful breakfast at the restaurant attached to the hotel. I was upgraded to a two queen room which is larger than the standard king. The beds were very comfortable with turn down service. The bathroom was a bit small as compared to the room but nicely appointed and a great shower! Everyone at the hotel was so friendly and accommodating. A special shout out to Dwayne the doorman - he was always smiling and greeting everyone by their name. Parking is valet and expensive - but you can't beat the location and it is Chicago. I'm sure I will stay there again.

I love The Talbott. Old world luxury in a downtown, convenient, affordable hotel. Love the lobby with its overstuff furniture and dark wood. My room was huge. And gorgeous. Bathroom spacious. Would definitely recommend-and have-to anyone.

We stayed at the Talbott after spending a tiring couple of weeks driving across Route 66 from L.A. We were tired and cold until we pulled up out front where we were greeted by Dwayne. Dwayne had so much energy and excitement about him that we were quickly re-energised! The hotel was warm as were all the staff. It was exceptionally clean and well located. We stayed for 5 nights and made use of the gym facilities each day. Every time we returned to the hotel, whether from a workout or a day's outing we were warmly greeted and asked about our day. It felt like we were coming home each time. Dwayne really added to the vibe of Chicago for us and Gene the concierge also provided some good ideas and advice. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to others. We believe it helped make our Chicago stay very special!

Took my husband to Chicago for three nights for his birthday. The Talbott Hotel was the PERFECT choice. Friendly staff, especially appreciated doorman Perry's friendly advice and information. Large very clean rooms. Nice restaurant on the premises. Try the salmon breakfast! This hotel is an easy walk to restaurants and Michigan Avenue. I want to add that we travel about three months of the year, so we stay in many hotels during this time. The Talbott is a notch or maybe two above most other hotel choices. Oh, and the price is reasonable too considering the city and the location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room street side. Nice windows, good light. Would have liked to have had a refrigerator in...

Our room was ready although we arrived early. Check-in was quick and we were given a room on the 14th floor around the corner from the elevator. Room was a good size and liked the double sinks in the bathroom. There was lots of drawer and wardrobe space and the room was quiet at night. The front desk staff were very helpful when we had a few queries. We relaxed one night in the lobby in front of the fire and had a drink. The location is perfect for the shops and sights and there are plenty of cafés and restaurants in walking distance. We had breakfast at the Tempo cafe which was just one block south on the corner of State. Didn't use the hotel valet parking as it's quite expensive. Booked through Spothero instead and got valet parking two blocks north at 2. East Oak for $26 for 24 hours. The entrance is on State Street. Would happily stay again if we get the same good deal with Ebookers.
