It's our first time visiting the Windy City and I definitely want to come back. I booked a room at the Talbott hotel for our 5th wedding anniversary after I read the great reviews on trip advisor and I was not let down. The staff was extremely friendly always assisting any way they could with a smile! Very spacious rooms... More

After many stays at the Talbot I wouldn't stay any where else in downtown Chicago. Long flight took me in at 6 am into the Talbot. Nigel the night manager worked his magic and was able to find me a room to get situated. The rooms as always super clean and extra big. Super comfy beds, towels, bathrobes and of... More

Our stay at the Talbott was very enjoyable. Talbott is located close to Water Tower shopping, food store, and many fine restaurants on Rush Street and other streets. You are about 4 blocks from Lake Shore Drive where we enjoyed walking and jogging on the pedestrian trail. The hotel room we had was a superior 2 Queen bed room which... More

My girlfriend and I stayed five nights at the Talbott while visiting the city and we had a great stay. When we travel, we only stay at small hotels and B&B's rather than the large impersonal hotels and the Talbott is one of the best we have found. The service was great, the staff was great, the room and the... More

Always a great stay with amazing accommodations. Stayed here exclusively over the past ten years, this most great stay proved otherwise and we had a terrible experience with the customer service during check in. Talk about a rude awakening! Waldorff here we come! Same room same hotel, ten years and now the service seems to have taken a huge nose... More

We loved the Talbott hotel. Big clean rooms, friendly staff, great location. Nice to have free WiFi included. Molton Brown toiletries are a very nice touch. The concierge was excellent, she booked a table in a great restaurant for us and recommended a good blues club.

Love Love Love this place. Very clean and the hotel staff are so friendly and attentive. Awesome location as well. Fresh green apples in the lobby and turn down service with chocolates each night. This was our second stay and plan on staying again next year.

The Talbott was an amazing hotel with great accommodations and within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and all the fun travel/tourist/enjoyable places. With all this, our trip was further enhanced by the amazing doorman, Dwayne, at the hotel. Not only was he friendly and personable but he always had fantastic recommendations and tips for us--truly the reason we extended our... More

We were within walking distance to a happening bar and restaurant scene, high end shopping and Chicago's clean and safe downtown. The hotel is older, so don't be surprised by the small room and bath size. The furnishings are uninspired and traditional, but all is well kept and clean. The bed linens were superb. Besides the location, the second reason... More

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
