“We will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The talbott is warm and inviting in its size and architecturally pleasing.
The location was perfect for our visit.
We were within walking distance to most everything we wanted to see.
The staff was helpful. We hope to return to the talbott sometime soon.

Superlatives are almost superfluous for this hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are large with an excellent communication system that comprises, TV, computer, WiFi, all free. All member of staff are friendly and go out of their way to help. We had a couple of slight problems which were resolved immediately and without fuss although with a great smile. Breakfast are good, especially taking into account the $15 per person voucher provided if the booking is made using the hotel's website. The serving staff cannot help enough. Location is excellent. A special mention should be made for the concierges who made our trip so memorable with their recommendations and bookings.

Can't say enough good things about The Talbott Hotel! Everything was perfect and cozy! The location is wonderful, short walk to the Magnificent Mile, great eateries, and fun things to do. We flew into Midway and used American Coach Limo Service ($44) from the airport to the Talbott and used Flash cab ($34) for our return to the airport which was equally as good as the car service. We would recommend both. The staff at the Talbott went out of their way to make our stay a special one. I would not hestitate to stay here in the future and would highly recommend it to anyone.
