“The Talbott Hotel Chicago, Great Experience”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I took my wife and 2 young boys (12 & 10) to Chicago over the 4th of July weekend and could not have been happier with our experience at The Talbott Hotel. We're from Minneapolis where people are known to be hospitable and the staff at The Talbott were beyond friendly and helpful. They heard about my younger sons recent birthday and when we got into our room there were balloons, cupcakes & a gift waiting for him!! The staff was always quick to assist from the concierge to housekeeping to room service. We were always greeted with a smile by the staff and they went above and beyond with their attention to our needs. We have been to Chicago several times and will be going back soon as we love Chicago. From here on in, we will only stay at The Talbott Hotel. Thank you to everyone who made our long weekend one of the best experiences for our family.

This is a fantastic hotel - from the rooms and support staff to location you can't go wrong. We were delighted when we were able to check into our room at 9am, well before check in time. We had a superior queen/queen room that was nestled against the lift shaft but we did not hear a sound the entire stay. The room was spacious and extremely comfortable. The housekeeping staff were all delightful and we enjoyed meeting everyone throughout our stay. We absolutely loved the hotel and Chicago and we will be back!

We loved everything about the Talbott. In my opinion, the room was quite spacious and, more importantly exceptionally clean. Service and staff were outstanding. Location is superb. Bath/shower very user friendly.

View? We didn't even check. What we cared about was a very nice, quiet, scrupulously clean place in an ideal neighborhood for shopping and restaurants. Bed was very comfortably luxurious.

Air conditioning worked wonderfully well! A bonus in July...

Free wi-fi is a deal-breaker for me. At a time when so many up-scale hotels want to charge an additional fee ($15 or so per day for wi-fi) this free wi-fi was welcome.

Trying to think of nits to pick (and I love to complain!) I find nothing but high praise for the Talbott Hotel. Check in and out were quick and seamless.

We were visiting Chicago for the first time and spent 3 nights at the Talbott Hotel--based on reviews from Trip Advisor! We were not disappointed! We were upgraded to a great room, everyone was friendly and helpful, the location was convenient--all exactly as described. Gene, the concierge, was more than helpful with great advice and recommendations. Dwayne greeted us when we arrived and brought our luggage to the room. He also gave us great recommendations! We highly recommend the Talbott!

Room Tip: Request a room on a higher floor with windows facing the street.

Wanted to stay downtown found this hotel on Trip Advisor and it was everything everyone said it was. Excellent service- we arrived in Chicago at 5:30 AM I called the Talbot and asked if our room would be ready by 7AM and we arrived to a clean & comfortable room. They were helpful on directions and great places to eat & drink. From now on when I return to Chicago we will make this our place to stay

We have always wanted to stay at the Talbott Hotel and were able to in July 2014. The service was impeccable from the minute we got out of our sedan. The rooms were larger than expected with very comfortable beds. Bathroom was nice with double sinks in our 2 Queen Bed room yet dated. The tub/shower was deep like a jacuzzi but without handholds to climb in and out if you slipped and the toilet had one of those handle flushers like in a school bathroom. It was very hot while we were there and the cooling system is rather dated, similar to a swamp cooling system. We had to always fiddle with the controls to restart it as it would become very warm and humid in the room.
An added bonus was the Keurig machine in the room. It was great to wake up with our favorite coffee
The location is perfect between Rush, State and Pearson. We were able to walk to many restaurants, shopping and attractions.

Room Tip: upper floors have nicer views and have less street noise

We found this hotel on trip advisor, and thanks to all the great reviews, we chose to stay here. We just loved it. Becky was so warm and hospitable at the front desk; she was always a pleasure to see. Perry helped us with our bags and gave us invaluable information to get us started in Chicago. Roanna was super helpful as our concierge and she was fun to talk to! Charles, our bellman, was such a love. Everyone was so friendly; they made us feel so welcome. When we walked in and saw our room, we were thrilled. It was stunning. We loved spending time in our room after sight seeing all day. We will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Chicago and we hope to go back one day and stay there again!
