“Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Just returned from staying at the Talbot for two nights. We arrived early and had to wait for our room, this was not a problem as we ate at the Market Place restaraunt downstairs. The room was a full upgrade and a very pleasant suprise as we enjoyed a one bedroom suite.

I have read the less than good reviews and wonder exactly where they stayed cause none of the problems they encountered came even close to our stay.

The room was well appointed and as the hotel is very clean and although the hotel is very English turn of century feel, we loved it. The bed was very comfy, bath products good, shower and bath very clean and good water pressure and lots of it.
EVERYONE was very pleasant and I would say we couldnt ask for better treatment. We just returned from Dubia where every thing is built big and spectacular but little things are subpar.

This hotel is great and would recommend it to anyone. We are an older couple and although there were children with some couples it was very quiet. Thank you Staff at the Talbot we will be back.

Room Tip: Room 1104, choose a high floor this room was close to elevator.

The location, the beautiful hotel room, the friendliest & professional staff you could imagine - this place surpassed our expectations and is amazing value. Little market restaurant downstairs offers great happy hour specials. The Talbott has everything you could hope for in a small boutique hotel. Exceptional customer service provided during our fabulous four night stay. Highly recommended.

Excellent hotel, highly recommended. It's small enough to were staff are welcoming and remember you when you walk through the door. Rooms are clean and housekeeping is very nice. The offer free wifi all through the hotel, as well as free umbrellas on loan when the weather is not in your favour. It is an excellent location. I felt very safe walking around the are late at night. They turn down your bed every night with chocolates on your pillow. They are not stingy on coffee, tea, and treats. Beds are very comfortable and bathrooms are large and clean.

Room Tip: Be sure your room is not facing the back ally. There is a garage there and every time it opens there...

Absolutely the best service I have had in a hotel. Dwayne was great and helped us with all aspects of our stay at the hotel and our trip to Chicago. Very clean room with a lot of amenities.I would recommend staying here.

We had a great stay at the Talbott. The room was very spacious, and the room was updated and modern with a flat screen tv and computer. The bathroom was nice as well. We booked online and were given brunch passes for both days. It was a great location to the Water Tower area as well. We will be back for a future visit.

This was our fourth stay at The Talbott while visiting Chicago. Everyone there is so friendly and the atmosphere is very inviting. Rooms are very clean and the hotel is well maintained. Very quiet hotel. Great for families.

What a great experience, we arrived 1 1/2 hours early and they greeted us like royalty. they upgraded us to a one bedroom suite for our two day stay...it was magnificent..can't say enough to express the greatness of this small Boutique hotel. what service ....a very warm greeting from Lani at the front desk and the nearly famous Dwayne the ambassador for the Talbott, he spent ten quality minutes with us and spoke very highly of His Hotel, why not what a great spot. The patio restaurant was buzzing with activity and very inviting on this gorgeus tree lined street, what a great location. The room features Apple Hub and keyboard to operate the smart TV, what a treat. The room was close to 600 square ft, and bed was super comfortable. The breakfast each day was extraordinary, excellent service and food and such a wonderful patio.hard to beat.

Room Tip: try Lou Malnati's pizza on State street, 10 minute walk from Hotel.
