We loved everything about the Talbott. In my opinion, the room was quite spacious and, more importantly exceptionally clean. Service and staff were outstanding. Location is superb. Bath/shower very user friendly. View? We didn't even check. What we cared about was a very nice, quiet, scrupulously clean place in an ideal neighborhood for shopping and restaurants. Bed was very comfortably... More

We were visiting Chicago for the first time and spent 3 nights at the Talbott Hotel--based on reviews from Trip Advisor! We were not disappointed! We were upgraded to a great room, everyone was friendly and helpful, the location was convenient--all exactly as described. Gene, the concierge, was more than helpful with great advice and recommendations. Dwayne greeted us when... More

Wanted to stay downtown found this hotel on Trip Advisor and it was everything everyone said it was. Excellent service- we arrived in Chicago at 5:30 AM I called the Talbot and asked if our room would be ready by 7AM and we arrived to a clean & comfortable room. They were helpful on directions and great places to eat... More

We have always wanted to stay at the Talbott Hotel and were able to in July 2014. The service was impeccable from the minute we got out of our sedan. The rooms were larger than expected with very comfortable beds. Bathroom was nice with double sinks in our 2 Queen Bed room yet dated. The tub/shower was deep like a... More

We found this hotel on trip advisor, and thanks to all the great reviews, we chose to stay here. We just loved it. Becky was so warm and hospitable at the front desk; she was always a pleasure to see. Perry helped us with our bags and gave us invaluable information to get us started in Chicago. Roanna was super... More

This was a surprise trip to Chicago for my wife's Birthday. Stayed two nights the first weekend in June at the Talbott. The Front staff was very friendly on our arrival. The hotel is located within walking distance to plenty of shops and restaurants. The room was a bit of a disappointment, as when opening up the curtains, our view... More

Beautiful facility, great service and perfect location. Great coffee and delicious breakfast. I absolutely LOOOOOVED this hotel. The room was fantastic with a large, clean, crisp and insanely comfortable bed. The check-in took a while because there was only one associate working the desk. While the hotel was pleasant the service from one particular front desk clerk was amazing. Kurtis... More

The Talbot is an olde-world hotel, a step back in time; the interior lobby is very traditional. The staff are great, very professional and helpful, easily getting taxis and advising on where to go in town. The only thing is the room we were in was very dark and there was no view at all. We didn't really want to... More

From the moment we checked in, the Talbott staff went above and beyond to make sure our week-long stay was top-notch. We arrived almost 3 hours early due to our flight and they handled our schedule with extreme ease and the finest hospitality. The hotel has a great location and service in Chicago's CBD, but the where it shines is... More

This was our first time to Chicago and the wonderful staff at the Talbott made it a great experience. Gene and the entire concierge staff were very helpful and pointed us the right direction and recommended wonderful restaurants. We will be staying at the Talbott the next time we go to Chicago.
