Small, independent boutique hotel that is excellent in all respects. The location is very convenient; the rooms are spacious, nicely appointed and spotlessly clean; the customer service is extraordinary. The Talbot is everything that a large chain hotel is not.

My husband and I stayed at the Talbott Hotel for 2 nights while in Chicago to attend a wedding. I did not know much about the hotel except for the reviews I read on Trip Advisor. My initial impression from the pictures on the website, was that it was not really my style - I prefer sleek and modern. However... More

If you want old style comfort, then this is the hotel for you. In the heart of Chicago, it is comfortable, luxurious and the staff are excellent. Gene, the concierge was fantastic and could not do enough to help. The rooms are quiet and good for getting away from the intense heat. I'm surprised at the reviews which state this... More

We stayed here, when I moved to Chicago. We were harried & hassled. The staff were attentive & very kind. The location is very convenient to Michigan Avenue shopping, restaurants & attractions. It was very quiet & clean. Peace & quiet when we really needed it.

I was rather excited to stay at The Talbott - I got a great, relatively last minute, rate from HotelClub and this was the highest-ranked hotel I've ever stayed in during my travels (relative to a given city). I arrived via taxi and the bell staff was very courteous. Service at registration was great and even though I knew the... More

Prior to my stay, I posted a review detailing how disappointed I was when one of their service agents changed my reservation by mistake to an earlier date. As a result, I received an email telling me I was a no-show and had to contact the hotel to restore my reservation for the correct date and make sure that I... More

Chicago's downtown hotel market is dominated by giants. What can a small boutique hotel like the Talbott do to stand out amongst the skyscraping corporate behemoths? They provide a great location and the kind of personalized service that makes guests feel like visiting royalty. The Talbott does this in spades! In our case, the service started well before our arrival... More

Referred to The Talbott by a good friend for a weekend wedding. Excellent choice. Great old charm. Good location. Clean, attentive staff. No complaints. A little pricey but well worth it. No complaints. The restaurant was good as well.

When it comes to finding a hotel for a larger family, your options in Chicago are very minimal. The Talbott Hotel was able to accommodate our family of five with no problems. Our two queen bedroom was very large, clean and had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. The hotel is in a great location, just a couple... 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.
