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 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.

Dont ever pay the room service person

A friend, Person A, orders food via room service. The room service Person B delivers it. A asks B if A pays B or just bill to the room. Person B says A can pay him. Person A pays B with cash along with a tip. When it comes to checking out on the tv, a $21 dollar charged to the room appears on the screen. We all go to the front desk, the hotel is NEVER notified that the bill was paid like it should have been according to the front desk. Paid double the amount for the food.

Sorely disappointed

Plumbing pipes were knocking all of the time. Cleaning staff failed to remove food garbage from the previous day and did not remove the champagne bucket with melted ice. Thanksgiving menu wasn't even printed until 20 minutes after we arrived for our dinner reservtion. All in all, not what you would expect from a luxury hotel in Chicago

Great Location but Construction

We were quite disappointed that at no time when I contacted the hotel directly did anyone mention the construction noise of the adjacent building! We were told at check in that our room had been upgraded to a Corner King. We were pleased with the room until the construction elevator woke us up Saturday morning, EARLY! We were going to move rooms for Saturday night but were told that there wouldn't be construction noise on Sunday...well not the case! We did move rooms Sunday to a wonderful suite yet it was CLOSER to the construction noise! We moved again to a room furthest away & it was tolerable for the rest of our stay! BICE restaurant next door is excellent for food & service; decor needs work.

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.

I guess I prefer modern...

The Talbott has nice big rooms but they look like they were decorated by my grandmother. Bathroom was disappointing too.I got a 15% off price and that resulted in windows that look out on a wall one foot away. No daylight.. Breakfast outdoors was reasonably priced but no fitness facility on premises. Not sure this is really a four star.

Nice Surprise!

Loved the location. Room was well appointed with Apple TV/Computer. Bedding very comfortable. Staff was very helpful and it's obviously they have been there a long time. Nice bar in the lobby along with a really good restaurant. Good breakfast a really good coffee. I will stay there again especially since it is half the price of the 4 Star hotels around the corner.

Good, but not great

Good, friendly place and excellent location. Central to all tourist spots in the Loop and Northwestern. Just be careful as some rooms have a window facing a wall, and the view was depressing. Staff is pleasant, however.

Loud and smoky

The room on the 3rd floor was over the service entrance with trucks and workers working late and night and early mornings. Incredibly loud, couldn't sleep. Room and hallway had very potent smoke odor. Great location and staff, but room itself is not what I paid for.
