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 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.

I'd go back :)

This was a great hotel. Very comfortable and the staff were absolutely wonderful - especially the men who were at the doors every morning and at valet. So kind and friendly. The room had nice amenities. I especially liked the nice Molton Brown touches ... And they have apples at the front desk! Nice touch. TV set up, which I was able to use as my computer, was great but (my only real complaint) remote wasn't very good. The gym access just up the street was really good. If you go, be sure to use the gym facilities. The restaurant next door//attached was probably the least good restaurant I tried in all of Chicago. Food was mediocre and staff not exceptionally good (they could/should connect with the training team at the hotel:)

There is a last minute ticket place near Macy's that sells last minute (day of) tickets to shows around town! Be sure to check it out. Great prices to some cool Second City shows, among others.

The Cultural Center offers free tours for your group. Our tour was about 3.5 hours and took us all over downtown and even to Greek Town on the bus for free.

Expensive

It was expensive but very nice. We did a lot of walking and the location was great. I think a breakfast should come with the room, for the price of the room. I was there once before and wasn't as close to everything.

A Hotel Staff from Heaven

The Talbott Hotel is lovely and unassuming next to its counterparts just a block away but that's what we loved most. Inside, you are greeted and cared for by the friendliest staff I've ever been treated to. The rooms take you back to a time of simple elegance. The only drawn back is if you are looking for a view of the city, this is not the hotel for you. It wasn't a primary concern of ours. If you want a view, go to Willis Tower. If you want to feel at home and in luxury all at the same time, Stay at the Talbott.
