For years the Talbot has been our choice in Chicago. A small, warm hotel (wood paneling and fireplaces in the lobby), it is a short walk from the best shopping on Michigan Avenue, the near-North and the night life of Rush Street. The concierge and staff are as good as anywhere, equally happy to get you reservations or a rundown... More

An excellent stay is what my wife and I experienced during our two nights at the Talbott, perfectly located in Chicago. Upon arrival by cab from O'Hare the front desk staff immediately went into action when my wife thought she left her wallet in the departing cab, calling Yellow Cab to id the driver. Fortunately the wallet was found in... More

The hotel was clean, spacious and in an excellent location. Close to lots of Chicago landmarks, easily walking distance to shops, restaurants and the John Hancock Tower. The staff were great, so helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely stay here again.

We brought our 3 children to Chicago for the first time. Originally booked at the Marriott closer to the lake, I'm so glad we switched to the Talbott! It was less expensive and infinitely more special. Beautiful and elegant, it's small like a European hotel. The staff is perfectly attentive. They suggested several local and delightful restaurants. The location is... More

I was on the 9th floor and it was very quiet. Everyone was very friendly. I will stay again. Had breakfast at the Mercadito Fish, sat outside.... More

Our stay was extra nice because I somehow received a complimentary upgrade to a suite. The room would have been a good value even at double the rate I paid. Comfortable bed, spacious sitting room, and a nice bathroom with two sinks across from each other. Other than dated decor, everything in the room was great. The service was better... More

We just got back from a two day stay at the Talbott and were blown away by the customer service and room. From the time we exited the taxi, Dewayne the Doorman was there to assist with the luggage, greet us, and escort us to the front desk. I had booked a one bedroom suite and requested a higher floor;... More
