The Talbott Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Engaging and personable staff were most helpful, especially the woman who checked us in and the concierge. He was friendly and informative. The room was large, comfortable, quiet, and clean. The bed comfortable too. Really, just an excellent experience. The hotel is convenient to great shopping and restaurants. It's an interesting and pleasurable 30-minute walk down the Magnificent Mile to Millennium Park, the cultural center, and the art institute.

I loved the previous iteration of the Talbot that had large rooms and an old world charm. Sadly this has been lost with the recent renovations. While the new hotel is still nice, the rooms are smaller, albiet still good sized, but their suites are not suites. In fact, the suite is smaller than a regular room. The old suites were huge with large bathrooms and now are just a standard hotel room. The hotel is definitely not built for a business traveler as there is no desk or work surface in either of the rooms I saw. I believe they are still getting the kinks out as the service, while courteous was uneven and slow.

Hubby and I stay at The Talbott each year during the holidays so we can shop Michigan Avenue, Watertower Place, and walk the magnificent mile. The hotel has large rooms, along with a professional and extremely friendly staff. You can also get a great price for this boutique hotel a short walk to Michigan Avenue. Hint: Look up at the entrance for the cow!

Small welcoming first floor with restaurant and bar. Good for a quick drink or snack. Decor is tasteful and modern. Very close to anything you need. Gene the concierge was very helpful as was the doorman (sorry forgot his name). Lyft rides are 1 min away. Room was small but functional with great robes and amenities. No coffee in room, but a coffee/ tea station is downstairs.

Was very disappointed in my recent experience to Talbott, room I stayed in did not seem suited for business traveler - no desk or desk chair. Staff was ok but not really pleasant and welcoming gave no information about the hotel other than coffee and tea available in the am. I am use to high quality of customer satisfaction.

After reading so many positive reviews about The Talbott Hotel, I decided to book a room while visiting Chicago on business. The newly renovated hotel is lovely. The level of service was beyond my expectations. I'll definitely book a stay again!

We didn't stay at the hotel, but had a drink at their bar 20 East. Very nice place to sit outside. The hotel looked fabulous, so that's on the list for next time in town. Golden taps in the bathroom. For example. :)

Newly renovated; we had requested a high floor and were assigned to second floor. We had a package deal but never were told the details of the package. The toilets were incredibly loud. Overall experience was just fine, room was clean and comfortable, but we felt stashed in a weird hallway with meeting rooms. At check-in staff was distracted by event going on in lobby; too pleased with the hipness of the attending crowd to properly welcome us.

Newly remodeled hotel near Michigan Avenue and Newberry Library. Lots of great restaurants in the area. Large rooms. Excellent service, especially concierge Tim Batchelder and housekeeper Rosemary Miller. Don M.

Recently renovated, this hotel has great staff, great rooms and a great location. It would be hard to not to enjoy this hotel for a holiday or special occasion. They organised private tours of Chicago and the concierge was most knowledgeable of the current events.
