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 2012, the Talbott features exclusive touches like the creative Tippling Brothers cocktail menu at the Little Market Brasserie, and the knowledgeable 'Concierge Blog' on the hotel's site, setting the hotel far apart from other Chicago accommodations.

Perfect Chicago Location

I stayed 10 days. Great hotel and location. Unfortunately, the hotel didn't bother to let guests know that work was being done on the roof - usually starting in early morning and going on for many hours - for many days. KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK< HAMMER HAMMER, etc. Front desk denied knowing about it - but then I got to see and photograph the work from another hotel. Impossible for them to not have known about this.

This hotel is in a great location, has a very friendly staff, super cozy rooms. Wi-fi is poor, and the gym is not in the actual hotel. Otherwise, loved our stay!

Fantastic experience

Visited for a reunion with friends. Proximity to downtown and the north side made for an unbeatable location. The ambiance of the room was extremely comfortable.

Just about perfect.

Location is pearless. I had a car rental and parking was never a problem. Without the car, about everything is in walking distance, or nearby bus. Staff was warm, friendly and helpful - from posting a letter to directions, adding an in room refrigerator, etc.. Room was very quiet (critical to me) and bed as good as it gets.

Go and Stay at The Talbott

We were greeted, taken care of and yes mints on the pillows to boot. Very helpful front desk, free internet and help, great concierge, and the bellmans could not be better. It is a bit pricey but Chicago is not cheap for any trip. Make a point of thinking of staying at this TONY hotel. Would stay here in a heartbeat.
