The Talbott Hotel is a European-style resort, which is reflected by the Italian Frette linen you'll find in each of its guest rooms. This AAA Four Diamond Hotel is a member of the Historic Hotels of America, as well as being one of the first Green Seal-certified hotels in the United States, so guests can be sure that their stay will have minimal impact on the environment.

Location
With a prime location just a few blocks from Washington Square Park, Oak Street and the Magnificent Mile, The Talbott Hotel comes with easy access to shops like Bloomingdale's and Macy's, as well as the scenic Lakefront Trail on the shores of Lake Michigan. The Art Institute of Chicago is less than two miles from The Talbott's front entrance, boasting a staggering collection of over 250,000 works of art, including work by Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet and Mary Cassatt.
Highlights

When guests are not relaxing in their rooms, they can easily explore the downtown Chicago area thanks to the hotel's convenient location in the Gold Coast neighborhood. Go shopping at the Magnificent Mile, or for entertainment, Drury Lane Theater is located in Water Tower Place, while the Lookingglass Theater is located next to Water Tower Place. Rush Street is just outside the doors of the hotel and is famous for its nightclubs and restaurants.

The Talbott Hotel will accept up to two well-behaved dogs per room with a combined weight of 50 pounds. Luxury pet boutique Tails in the City is located just across the street. The hotel houses one on-site restaurant, the Mercadito Fish Co, but the Signature Room on 95th, Tavern on Rush, and Merlot on Maple are a few of the dining options located close to the hotel.

For a more personalized stay, the Talbott Hotel's packages offer everything from the princess treatment for young daughters - including milk and cupcakes at turndown - to a $50 gift certificate  for the 900 North Michigan Shops.

awesome time

I was in Chicago with friends and decided I wanted to stay in the city. I booked the hotel quickly and was able to check in just as quick. The restaurant downstairs serves some delightful drinks and is a great place to meet with friends before a night out on the town. It was a great stay and I will return.

Underwhelmed

Stayed there over a 3-day holiday weekend. Very nice hotel but didn't live up to the hype. Fast assistance from the doorman and a quick check-in. The room was superb with wonderful amenities. The front desk staff was quick to remedy any issues, including bringing new batteries for the remote at 4am. My issue is that we were "upgraded" to a room that shared a wall with the cleaning closet. All afternoon it sounded like the housekeeping staff and the mop were having a fight! Also the room overlooked an alley and looked directly into the rooms of the other hotel. At 4:30am the beeping of trucks backing out of the alley and the yelling from staff giving instructions was quite the ruckus. We actually downloaded a white noise app to help us sleep. Staff also left early because it was a holiday. There was no room service and the restaurant downstairs was closed, so we ordered pizza and had it delivered. The front desk staff did not seem pleased by this. We also had to put up with a night of "ding-dong-ditch". Just a side note: They were adamant that room service be charged and not paid in cash. Since it was their preference and not policy, we would make it a point when ordering to say we were paying cash. Nevertheless, 3 charges had to be reversed. I actually had room service refuse to take cash the first time until I called the front desk and had her speak with him. The biggest thing that left a bad impression was the lack of professionalism of a certain housekeeper. She acted a little too familiar for my taste. I doubt we'll stay there again but I would offer a cautionary recommendation.

When we arrived it was great. Recommend valet your car it's worth the $60. Right down town. Easy to get to. The bar is clean and classy. Would definitely stay here again.

Our Stay at the Talbott Hotel in Chicago

The Talbott Hotel in Chicago was rated as a 4 star hotel, but I'd give it 5 stars. From the minute we walked through the door (held open by the door man) and went to the Reception Desk we were treated like royalty. Our room was up-graded to a Deluxe room without asking and were given free breakfast buffet vouchers for the length of our stay when I asked if their restaurant was open for breakfast. Our bed was turned down each night and chocolate candy placed on our pillows. The bedding was luxurious with a beautifully thick duvet and even the bathroom was spacious and offered Molton Brown products. We love to cruise and I would say this room was as lovely and well equipped as a suite on a Celebrity Cruise Ship . We will stay at this hotel again and have already recommended it to friends.
