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.

Great hotel

The hotel was perfect. Location was just one block from the Magnificent Mile. Staff was great. We arrived far earlier than the official check-in time but the front desk found us a room. right away. The cleaning staff saw that we were traveling with a baby and gave us extra towels without being asked. Concierge was able to direct us to 2 different family friendly restaurants within walking distance. Bed was soft, room was clean and comfortable. 100% recommend. Will definitely stay there again

Phenomenal Experience

This place was fantastic. I do a lot of business travel and ended up booking here because the price for four nights was really, really good. The service, size of the room, cleanliness, business-travel friendly extras (Mac minis in each room with an internet connection, excellent concierge), pretty much everything was far above my expectations. An exceptional value (for Gold Coast especially).

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.

It was a nice stay. Although we requested a smoking floor, I did not care for the room and floor smelling like a cigarette.

Great hotel stay!

Perfect spot to stay - able to walk to almost everywhere - if we couldn't walk the "EL" subway was a block away and taxis outside the front door - staff was friendly and helpful - chocolates on the pillow at night were a nice touch. Would DEFINITELY stay here again.
