The Talbott Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The purchase and renovation of the hotel did not meet expectations from previous stays before the new ownership. They removed the warm European ambience from the common areas and the guest rooms. There was no closet or armoire to hang your clothes but an open rack on the wall. The bottom sheet on the bed was not fitted and was not sized to be tucked under the mattress so it moved and bunches up when you moved.

The location is wonderful but the suite is just an ordinary hotel room. We were expecting the same room we stayed in a year ago but according to the front desk the suite we stayed in before was redone and 2 rooms were made out of that space. This was our first anniversary and we came to Chicago specifically to enjoy the room and were very disappointed. There was also no water pressure in the shower and the water didn't get more than semi-warm. On the positive side, the location is great, the room is clean and the bed is very comfortable. If you can get a good price it's a fine place to spend the night.

The Talbott is in a great location, walking distance from shops and restaurants. Lovely renovated old hotel with large rooms, quiet street, friendly service. The bar and restaurant served us a nice meal on Christmas night when we arrived. Nice healthy restaurant offerings nearby.

The Talbott is an excellent value at this time of year. The staff are relaxed and friendly. The breakfast food was delicious and high quality. The coffee was hot. Location is outstanding. I will be back

Have stayed at this hotel many times. The new remodel is awful. No mote fireplaces or English charm. All sleek and cold atmosphere. Nothing to recommend it anymore. Too bad they did such a poor remodel. It will be missed.

We really enjoyed the Talbott hotel before the new ownership and renovation. Sadly, we will not return next year as we were not as comfortable as years past. We really miss the old suites before renovation. They made our Christmas away from home very comfy and homey.

I stayed for 3 nights in August, 2017, just in town for shopping and sightseeing. My room went beyond my expectations. I especially loved the spa robe and the lighted makeup mirror. The staff was wonderful, friendly and helpful. There is just nowhere else I would stay in Chicago. Ever.

Wonderful boutique hotel! Cannot wait to go back and stay again soon!! The property was pristine! Best spot for a weekend girls getaway - close to the best shopping, spas, restaurants and all the winter festivities.

I’ve stayed at Talbott Hotel a few times, and keep coming back for several reasons. First, the staff make you feel very comfortable and like they are family. Gene, the concierge is fantastic. He set me up with an in room massage that was phenomenal. I also left a few things behind accidentally, and he mailed them to me at no charge. I received them the next day! The room is comfortable, and I love the boutique vibe in one of my favorite areas in the city. The bar is cozy, and staff super friendly. If you need a blow dry, Salon Buzz across the street is outstanding. I will continue to come back to The Talbott! Merry Christmas! 🎁🎄

The staff are wonderful in making you feel at home. The concierge helped us find a place for dinner on a busy Friday night - even were given free appetizers because of the connection. The room and amenities were all clean and comfortable. Made it all fun to visit the city even though we live only an hour away. great location for us to finish our Christmas shopping and have time to walk and enjoy the city too.
