Independently-owned and with a dedication to green practices, The Talbott Hotel has been a fixture in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood since 1927. The hotel mingles old-world sophistication with modern conveniences - the lobby has a cozy, open-fire warmth and the vintage-style boardrooms feature 1920s mahogany walls. Awarded the Best in Stay Award by Orbitz in 2014 - 2015, the Talbott features exclusive touches like the creative Tippling Brothers cocktail menu at the Mercadito Fish Co., and the knowledgeable 'Concierge Blog' on the hotel's site, setting the hotel far apart from other Chicago accommodations.

Great location

We spent 4 nights at the Talbott Hotel. It is located on a quiet street a short walk from all we wanted to do. The rooms are comfortable, with free WiFi, and nice Molton Brown products in the bathroom. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We had a recommendation to eat at Rosebud's in Little Italy, which the concierge booked for us. We also ate at Rick Bayless's Frontera Grill - excellent. (We were less impressed with the famous Chicago deep dish pizza, but we tried it.) Le Pain Quotidien is two doors away and served a good breakfast and afternoon tea. We took the architectural boat trip, which we had been told was a must, and it really is a must. We took in the view from the top of the John Hancock (now called 360), which was terrific. The Art Institute is also not to be missed. And last, but not least, we enjoyed a trip to Wrigley Field. One quibble with the front desk. They mixed up our credit card with that of our friends, and despite trying to put it right we ended up paying for their minibar usage. But, overall a very nice hotel and we would definitely stay again.

Needs an update

Amazing location....that's about it. Room is spacious but smells bad. Needs to be refurbished. Zero amenities. No fitness room. Wireless internet didn't work often. Key cards weren't working. Housekeeping left a filthy rag on the desk one afternoon. Overall, I will not be back.

Special Occasion

The Talbott presents as an old-school, elegant hotel, and for the most part doesn't disappoint, at least as far as staff attentiveness and cleanliness are concerned. The entire place, however, appears to be served by only two, small and slow elevators, which you will invariably have to share with the cleaning and janitorial staff. Not the stuff of 4 stars, I'm afraid. The lobby and bar, too, are great disappointments and have clearly been photographed with width and depth-enhancing lenses.
