The Talbott Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
even though the hotel just reopened from a complete renovation they forgot to renovate their employees politeness. No smiles....issues with continental breakfast advertisement on their TV sign on. was suppose to have a $15.00 per person comp towards breakfast according to advertisement, when we checked out was told that had to be asked for when we made our reservations. never once was that mentioned on the tv or internet.
This was not the hotel I remembered a year ago. So sorry that the décor had changed. Really disappointed in the newer style. I loved the older décor which made you feel like you were in an older European style hotel - very cozy. For $500/night (the rate we paid) I did not enjoy my stay. I understand that they recently went through a remodel which was finished in early May 2017, but there were a lot of things wrong with our room. The TV reception was poor, the hot water in the shower was tepid at best, they didn't provide any additional toilet paper in the room (you had to call for it). We should have stayed at the Fairmont or the Drake which were similarly priced. We've stayed at the Talbott Hotel multiple times in the past and have had much better experiences. So sorry they changed management.
I love staying in this hotel, updated and refreshed. Staff friendly, rooms are spacious and contemporary. Fantastic location. I'm about to say something picky but feel like I need to add it. The products in the bathrooms by Jonathan Adler have a very strong fragrance and are also a bit irritating to the skin. I would suggest they think about changing to something that's a bit more skin friendly. Yes, the packaging is lovely but the product not so great. This is just a comment to the hotel staff who is in charge of buying these products, but otherwise, I would strongly recommend staying here if you're visiting Chicago.
Room was much larger than expected. Refurbish was so new, you could still smell the fresh paint. The scaffolding outside was not a bother, it just reinforced that things were still brand new. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Superfriendly staff, they make you feel welcome and home. Quiet and clean room, rather small but large enough for one person. The bathroom was nicely renovated and spacey with a rain shower. The hotel has recently been renovated, the new style is a good mixture of old and new mainly held in the colours black and white, but you can still feel the atmosphere of an older building ( dark wood, brass ornaments).
I might be in the minority here, but I liked the old Talbot better. Don't get me wrong, the staff is still incredible and the location just about perfect. But for the life of me, I don't know who directed the room renovations, but they obviously never used the furniture they spec'd. Couple more things... I do not like that there is no longer a coffee maker in the room. (we requested one but they were out on the first morning, but available the second) The mini-bar fridge and snacks take up more than half of the drawer space. On our last day, we ran short of toilet paper. And that bathroom layout--ugh. I guess I expected too much from this reno--that staff was so excited about it back in the winter during our last stay.
Room was very large compared to most hotels, staff was very helpfull and friendly. Location is great, close to restaurants and shopping. Bed mattress was very comfortable and Wi-Fi fast. Hotel experience was great!
First off- great location. Second- we found all the staff to be very friendly ! The beds were comfortable too and the room was large. The kinks they need to work out is small things like old ugly chairs from pre- reno still in the room- plus doors that stick and don't stay open-- better lighting. We thought it was funny there is no closet- they just have an open standing rod in the room. Can't help to hear sirens in the day and night- so be prepared for it! Other than that, we liked it.
Re model has left the beautiful Talbot cold and lacking. The rooms are sparsely furnished and poorly lit. Bed was comfortable but that was the only redeeming factor other than the fabulous staff as usual. No spare toilet paper, no turn down service, no coffee maker in room. Desk was so poorly lit that it was unusable. In laws had different style room, larger with no desk at all and equally cold.
Two months in advance I requested a handicap room which was not provided. I was not offered an explanation why no handicap rooms were available in spite of laws stating that room should be provided according to the American disability act
