The service here is very good and the location a block or two off Michigan Ave is good. The amenities in the room were not great. There was only one washcloth, bed was just Ok and NO desk which is really odd with so many people working remote. My room was so close to the building next to me that I literally had to keep my blinds closed. I would not stay here again and the only reason I gave it a 3 was that the employees were so nice.

Gorgeous decor and decent rates! Very clean, with everything we could need. Brandi at the front desk was so helpful and amiable! Very convenient location too, despite no official parking through the hotel itself.

The Talbott Hotel has become part of the Marriott family. It sits in a great neighborhood at the north end of the Magnificent Mile, features clean and spacious rooms, employs friendly staff, and has good interior soundproofing. However, as of early June 2022, the Talbott doesn't have the look or feel of a modern Marriott hotel with amenities. For example, it has no business center, only a tiny basement exercise room, etc. Rooms do not include microwave ovens or tea kettles as standard items (they need to be requested), and do not include room safes. There is no signage or any other indication of the hotel's affiliation with Marriott. One hopes that Marriott will find a way to update the hotel just a bit, while retaining its good points.

It’s important we share this as we don’t want anyone else to have this same experience. From an old bandage stuck to the bathroom floor, to dirty nightstands that were not wiped clean (see photo), and little to no furniture in the room. The only furniture were two chairs that were old and very, very tiny. Sad to see the quality and care of this hotel go down so rapidly. The only pros we can think of is the location is perfect and the sheets were clean & bed was comfortable.

I stayed for 2 nights while attending a work conference. The pros of this hotel: Great neighborhood, quiet, small hotel. Air conditioning worked great in the room. The food at the hotel was also very good. Bed was comfortable. The cons: small amount of towels and almost no amenities. Meaning, there was a teeny tiny bar of soap (just 1!!) by the sink and no body wash. I was chuckling how it would be necessary to move that little bar of soap to the shower in the morning. Very small flat pillows (requested more and that request was quickly taken care of) My room was quite small but it was just me so that was ok. I would have liked a chair in the room (only a hard desk chair) to read my book. The only bed in the room was a queen, not a king. There is a small gym in the basement that was quite warm to workout in. There was a Peloton, but I don’t think the hotel paid the subscription fee. I am a Peloton member and I couldn’t even sign into the bike. So,that should be repaired or remedied. There were plenty of places to eat nearby and a Starbucks across the street. I noticed in previous reviews that people complained there wasn’t any coffee until 7am in the lobby( this is correct)….but the Starbucks is just across the street and opens very early. There is another cute coffee place just next door as well.

Certainly a nice hotel which appears to be well managed and maintained. A special callout to Taylor at the front desk for his attention and help/attitude - nice approach!!. He made it special. One recommendation to give, if you need to have a desk in your room you should specify such as the first room I got did not have one. They (Taylor) moved me which is appreciative to me. Finally, the selection of TV stations are not huge but does meet the need.

I stayed with the Talbott family for several weeks as I had no place to turn being new to Chicago. Exceeding expectations would be an understatement. Even with a 4 month old puppy, this staff was there to help me with ANYTHING at any moment. I work in luxury hospitality and what this hotel has to offer is beyond their humble kindness. I stayed in 12 other luxe hotels over my year in Chicago, the service, the cleanliness, safeness, and simply put their hospitality is of the highest caliber I experienced. Tucked in the safest, calmest part of Downtown Chicago's Gold Coast, midst everything you need if you carry a bit of class. Beautiful moody lounge, INCREDIBLE food. Simply put, I cant say enough great words and can not think of anything negative.

The Talbott just doesn’t seem to care anymore. A tired and now no-frills hotel was an unpleasant stay. On check-in there was a long line of guests waiting for very overwhelmed and inexperienced staff to check them in. Front desk staff had to activate my key — twice — as they did it wrong, and I hadn’t even left the check in stand. My room was missing hand soap and water cups (had to wait 30min for those to arrive) and the art had been taken off the walls (“in advance of reservations”). Tiny lobby was routinely empty of staff. You had to request that your room be made up, which would have been nice to have been told at check-in. No signs of life here.

This hotel just became a part of the Marriott Bonvoy family so I decided to check it out. I was happy with my stay and would recommend. The location is great and I'm glad Marriott has a new option so close to Rush/Division area where I typically like to socialize when in Chicago. The front desk attendant was very friendly. I stayed in a studio suite and was shocked there was not a desk where I could work. Luckily there was a couch & table, but not very comfy to sit there for a long period of time. The bathroom is on the smaller side, but did have a double vanity, so plenty of room to spread out toiletries. It would have been nice to have robe and coffee maker in my room, but I know some of these amenities are still slow to return post-Covid shutdowns. I look forward to returning - and have also recommended to some friends visiting this summer!

Been to the Talbot on many occasions over the years and have always been impressed- our recent trip was the exception. Poor service from the time we stepped out of our car. No doorman to greet or assist with luggage. While I parked the car my wife was not allowed to check into our room(s) - never been a problem in the past. When I arrived I was given a cold “non-greet” by a disinterested front desk clerk who could not be bothered to look up and talk. No amenities offered ( which had been given just 3 weeks prior) - the only explanation was “we are transitioning”. Requested ice be sent to our room - it never arrived. No coffee in lobby until after 7am the next morning. As stated - we have always enjoyed the Talbot in the past - but after speaking to management about the situation- we won’t be back. Go to The Thompson a few blocks away or The Gwen or any number of other choices- you will feel the difference
