Beautiful large guestrooms and suites, excellent service, to-die-for linens...overall one of the best hotel experiences for a group of seasoned travelers.

I stayed at The Talbott for 3 nights on business and was very pleased. The staff was friendly as can be immediately confirming the lore of the midwest. I was upgraded to a suite which was bigger than my apartment and certainly more luxurious. The free wi-fi came in handy as I needed to work remotely while there. Everything from the comfort of the bed to the staff and location made this a great stay. Oh, and I got to workout at the huge Equinox right next door for free.

We come to Chicago once a year for a romantic get away. The Talbott is our favorite hotel so far. You get the same amenities as "bigger names", but with a price that is very reasonable and a cozier atmosphere. Location is great, staff helpful and friendly. I personally love a smaller hotel that is quaint and high quality. Highly recommend for those looking for the same.

My husband & I travel from Ft Laud to Chi-town once a year and this is our 2nd year staying at the Talbott and look forward to coming back next year. Great location close to Michigan Ave & Rush St, and daily passes to the Equinox gym in the Bloomingdales building. We always excercise when traveling therefore a gym is important to us. Hugos Frog Bar on Rush St was a great place for seafood, we even ran into the general mgr for the Chicago Bears. You won't be disappointed staying at The Talbott!

I don't think I could even think of something to complain about.. Food was excellent, the rooms were clean and beautiful, and the location was great. The service was exceptional, friendly, and helpful beyond expectations helping us with directions around the city, transportation, and anything else we needed.. The only thing that was kind of an eyesore more than anything was the construction on the building next door to the hotel, though we couldn't hear or see it from our room, and there was construction all over the city while we were there. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definetly stay again.

Very quaint and romantic, yet masculine. I've noticed that at most Chicago hotel bars it's hard to get a drink much less a seat but I guess because it's a small hotel that was not a problem at the Talbott - plus people take their drinks out to the seating in the lobby because it's so inviting - cozy and comfortable - love that! Would love to stay again but I must say that I was surprised by all the comments on the comfortable beds - ours was too firm. Also note there is no gym on the premises - but walking and shopping is enough of a workout!
