“I wanna keep this place a secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I would love to say we had a awful experience so no one would go and we could have it to ourselves anytime we want....but I'd be lying. From the moment we arrived till we checked out I can honestly say not one complaint. Everyone we encountered were great. The room was clean and big and perfect. Location is the absolute best. A block from Michigan Ave. There are a ton of excellent restaurants within a 10 minute walk. I can say every time we visit Chicago we will stay at The Talbott.

Room Tip: Dont expect a view. It is a small hotel and a majority of the rooms will not have a speakable view.

We couldn't get a reservation initially and had to stay at another hotel starting our last visit to Chicago. Luckily a room opened up and they were able to accommodate us. This hotel is like a little hidden gem in Chicago's Gold Coast area. Very close to shopping, restaurants and the many things Chicago has to offer. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Our favorite place to stay in Chicago.

We stayed 3 nights in this wonderful hotel.It is so well located just off North Michican Avenue in the busy centre of the city. Rooms are superb,comfortable beds,excellent bathroom.We walked to all the sights river cruise Arts Institute etc The restaurant and bar are very good with good service.The price is surprisingly good given the location near the 4 Seasons hotel which charges much higher rates The concierge staff are really helpful and know the city restaurants to recommend First visit but would stay again if back in Chicago a wonderfully clean vibrant city

The Talbott is a lovely place. Beds are great and the pillows divine. The best part of our trip was Dwayne, an employee of the Talbott. Dwayne would greet us as he stood near the front door. He was delightful and helpful. Hope to see you again, Dwayne.

I stayed for 5 nights and the hotel was awesome. First, the location is superb, near to the North Michigan Ave, and in case you want to go to somewhere without walking too much, there is a subway station 2 blocks away. The rooms are excellent, very comfortable bed and pillows, and by the afternoon, somebody of the staff knocked on our door to give us some Fannie Mae chocolates. I booked my room using the hotel's website and in exchange I received a 15$ voucher per person per day for breakfast (up to two people), which is very good. It was my first trip to Chicago, i loved the city and, when i return, i can't imagine myself going to another hotel.

I am going to be brief - The Talbott was AMAZING! I recently stayed there with a friend while we shopped our way through Chicago. The room and service far exceeded our expectations. The room was spacious, lovely and extremely comfortable. I especially loved the bath sheets and the bath products! The staff was most accommodating and welcoming. From the minute we walked into the charming lobby, we felt at home. I can't wait for a repeat visit!
