This was our first time in Chicago with my girlfriend. We were impressed. They say first impressions are the most important, and the Talbott did an excelent job of giving us a mirror image of what we were going to find in Chicago. The staff was very friendly from day 1. We were first given a room with a little cigarette odor, and they immediately changed our room. We later used the hotel services for several different reasons. We never ate at the hotel's restaurant because we had a big list of places to eat at unforunately, but we were certainly tempted.
The hotel's look is reminiscent of another decade, but still very elegant and nice. I have always thought that the most important item in a hotel room is the pillows and BOY did they have good pillows. But the best part of this hotel was the price. Located at the very heart of the "fancy north district" in chicago, just two blocks away from Mag Mile, this hotel has nothing to envy of the Sofitel in front of it or the Waldorf on the back. And still we got a booking at less than half the price of those.
So don't even thing about it. This is the place to stay at in Chitown. Have fun.
