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 Mercadito Fish Co., and the knowledgeable 'Concierge Blog' on the hotel's site, setting the hotel far apart from other Chicago accommodations.

Fancy old style

We were there for a weekend conference. It was ornate and stately. The staff was friendly and helpful. The décor is dark and dated, but nice.

Nice Place, Dark Room

Great staff, beautiful lobby, wonderful location. Unfortunately my room was in a part of the hotel that faced another building and virtually no outside light filtered into the windows.

Choice Location for that Perfect Weekend

Converted from (probably) condos to a stately boutique hotel. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Close to Michigan Ave and the Water Tower shops. Can walk to the Lake if you enjoy walking. Did not eat at the attached seafood restaurant, but it appeared many locals did. Room was good-sized. Bed was extremely comfortable. Heard another guest say the same thing. Couldn't get TV to work the whole weekend but had I asked, they likely would have fixed it. Overall, good experience. I'd stay there again.

Try a relatively new spot called Eataly. All things Italian in a two story building. Has eight or so mini restaurants each w own specialty. Most of u will want to try either their gelato or their Nutella bars.

Boutique-y, green and cozy.

Have to keep our non-profit expenses down and to do this without losing quality is a challenge. The Talbott Hotel is just my speed. As a conservationist, the green aspect is very important to me and well done at this hotel. The room was comfortable, the staff was responsive and warm, the ambience was charming and welcoming. Located centrally for my meetings and functions, eliminated any need for a car in the city.

Well...

I am a big fan of the Talbott and stay here frequently. Not sure what happened on my last vistit but I did not have a reservation when I arrived, and the city was booked solid. Fortunately they found a room for me...$564 dollars later...

Talbott is my home away from home in Chicago.

This is my fourth stay at the Talbott. Just there for a week. I consider it my home away from home. I'm Chicago born and raised and have work, family and friends still in town. So conveniently located. Impeccable service. Knowledgeable, professional and courteous staff. Only reason I don't want to rave about The Talbott too much is a fear that everyone will want to stay at the there, it'll sell out and I won't be able to get a room next time when I need it!
