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.

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.

The Talbott,but...

The Talbott lived up to all the advance billing,save for one item..."Room Size". The amenities were lovely, never experienced a nicer more helpful staff anywhere. The Consierge Team never failed us, and sometimes were able to get us little "extras" with dining reservations. The location absolutely could have not been better 1 1/2 blocks to Magnificent Mile Shops. Three blocks to subway. Surrounded by bus routes Good solid eateries within a block or two (more coming) However we did get to peer into other rooms,seemed twice as big as ours. The room was very nice, but lacked the size and more of the "heavy" older charm. No question would stay here again, only has to be a larger room..

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

ask the consierge o suggest someplace close by for both inexpensive and moderate dining. Better to see how your $$ flow. Oh,of note, "Pizzanos" for deep dish pizza is good, what makes it more interesting is the WWII era bar its in. Al Malnatti's is superior.

Valet parking is $58.00 per night, which is kind of high, but they also allow self parking. Would choose self parking if /when staying there again.
