This hotel is located in the best possible location in the city of Chicago. Convenient to Michigan Avenue shopping, Rush Street restaurants and Loyola Chicago downtown campus. Every member of the Talbott hotel staff is extremely accommodating and pleasant. Loved the access to Equinox. We will stay here on all future visits!

We only had one night in Chicago, and we chose the Talbott Hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and because we prefer to stay at smaller hotels in big cities. From the moment we pulled our car up to the entrance until checkout the next morning, everything was top-notch, from the hotel staff to the room itself. Friendliness and guest... More

When choosing the perfect place to stay I look for location, history & great reviews. The Talbott ticked all the boxes. Built in 1927 the hotel is classy yet warm & inviting. Upon entering the hotel you will notice two large sitting areas with fireplaces. There is also a bar/restaurant attached to the hotel. Most of the rooms have been... More

This hotel has a really NICE problem. It is impossible to find one member of staff who outshines all the others. No matter what you want or when you want it you always get an immediate and cheerful response. We have never met a more happier bunch of people at work. Everything about the hotel is nice; decor, comfort, cleanliness,... More

From our first arrival to our departure, every experience was perfect. My 11 year old niece absolutely loved this hotel. We were treated as honored quests and all recommendations were "spot on." I highly recommend this hotel and will stay here the next time I visit Chicago. Very near John Hancock Tower and Water Tower.

For me, tripadvisor isn't about writing reviews, although I make a point to do so; it's about sharing the honest experiences of other travelers who provide information that helps me make decisions. The Talbott Hotel is probably the prime example of this. I completely relied on tripadvisor to help me choose where we would stay in downtown Chicago for a... More

My wife and I picked the hotel because it was highly rated on Trip Advisor and was in a central location between Michigan Avenue and State, two major thoroughfares in downtown Chicago. Everyone at the hotel was super friendly and helpful. The doorman, Perry, gave great advice and arranged to have a mini fridge brought up because we were staying... More

Well, it has been a long time since I was impressed by a US hotel. At this price, it is a bargain. Very well located, 5 minutes walk from the red line Chicago station, and 10 minutes walk from Michigan Avenue. Nice welcoming lobby, nice restaurant as well. This boutique hotel offers great rooms, with turndown service (first time in... More

The Talbott Hotel made my four-night stay in Chicago such a great experience. From a warm and welcoming staff, to a clean and stylish room, to an excellent location - there wasn't a thing on this trip that wasn't "just right". There's even a hip restaurant connected to the hotel that serves a delicious, if limited, menu and a 24-hour... More
