The Talbott Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Talbot was a wonderful hotel. We booked a suite deal that allowed us to book a two room suite for a very affordable rate. The hotel was in the center of everything and the staff were great. The room was clean and we couldn't have asked for a better deal. Our only regret was that they closed this year for renovations and we had to find a different hotel.

Beautiful and charming hotel! A great alternative for business travel, when you are tired of the "cookie cutter" large hotel chains. Friendly and attentive staff - always remembers me as a repeat guest. The standard rooms are quiet, very clean and spacious, with equally large bathrooms. The suites are luxuriously large - like small city apartments! Located on a beautiful street, 2 blocks from Michigan Avenue and steps from great shopping and restaurants - no cab necessary! The Talbott has excellent service and is willing to accommodate requests any way they can - truly a 5 star staff. Best feature: The charming atmosphere of a boutique hotel is evident upon entering - dual fireplaces in the lobby is a great quiet meeting place, or simply a great spot for an afternoon cup of tea!

Really great hotel. Absolutely fantastic. In the centre of Chicago - not far away from shopping malls and great restaurants. Concierge was amazing. Was looking for various locations and needed other help other as well. So was great.

We loved the room, people and service at The Talbot. The location is close to Michigan Avenue and was walking distance to most things we wanted to see. We will definitely stay there again next trip to Chicago

Warm ,comfortable and inviting room. Staff was so friendly and willing to accommodate us in any way. Very professional. We requested more towels and they immediately brought them. The lobby bar is small but great place to stop and enjoy a cocktail with friends.

We stayed at the Talbott during the World Series playoffs in October. Not only is the location perfect, but the staff can't be beat. The doormen are the most warm and elegant in the city, a wonderful sendoff and welcome always. Moved to finally write this review because of Concierge Gene Murray, whom I called when I realized I forgot a whole outfit hanging on the hook on the back of the bathroom door (the playoffs made for some boozy evenings at nearby Gibson's, Zebra Lounge, etc etc). Mr Murray and the housekeeping staff located my clothes and Fedexed them to my home in California. Thank you Mr Murray and everyone at the Talbott. See you soon!

I agree with most of the other reviews - nice little lobby, great fireplace, and comfortable. I would give 5 stars to the customer service component, all of whom are visible throughout your stay. I suppose from one viewpoint, one could easily say there is a "European Elegance" to the hotel. To the couple that reads good reviews, and expects an upgraded, clean room to go along with the reviews, this would not be your place. The rooms are very old and far more European than I am use to. Light pink and brown walls/carpet, with outdate amenities. For your dollar, if European elegance is not your thing, look down the street, hotels everywhere. With that being said, the place is well kept, and I don't mean to take anything away from the hotel, because I am sure it is what you pay for - a hotel with European elegance. Just not my thing. Thanks and good luck.

We really liked this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The fireplace in the lobby is welcoming. Although we did not have any sort of view, our room was cozy and comfortable. A lot of people mention the slow elevator - hopefully this is something that might be addressed during the renovation that is going on right now. The best part about this hotel is the location! It is in a beautiful, clean, safe neighborhood and the block is very attractive. We enjoyed walking to dinner each night and returning to such a welcoming hotel. There was a bar and restaurant at the hotel but we did not try. I would recommend that the hotel give guests an incentive (ie free glass of wine) to prompt us to give it a try. We enjoyed four nights here and would gladly return.

We were upgraded to 2 bedroom suite.. rooms size are generous.. staff are friendly and accommodating...location is perfect for us. Centrally located to shopping, tourists location, restaurants and park. Will definitely come back 😄

Stayed for two nights and had a wonderful experience. It started off on the right foot when the doorman greeted us as we pulled up to the curb. He was an older gentleman who was warm, gracious, welcoming and sincere. The checkin was quick and efficient. We took a suite which was very large, clean and had everything we needed. The location was great was great for all of our touring. Just a great experience all around.
