On our recent trip we stayed at the Talbot Chicago and it was magnificent. From the service to the large luxury rooms (heated bathroom tiles, double vanity, TV computer) it was perfect. The hotel has so much character, our party was so impressed.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled with friends

It's very hard not to gush about this place, because it's just so very good. Location, value, comfort but above all just the nicest, friendliest (without being remotely obsequious) service we've ever had. We stayed four nights and all staff we encountered clearly love their jobs and the city, taking immense pride in both. Could not recommend more highly - more hotels should be like this!

Room Tip: We had a one bedroom suite - it was huge!

Spent our thanksgiving weekend at the hotel. As always the stay was outstanding. The service is truly remarkable. I especially enjoy the personal touch that Dwayne (head bellman) provides me and my family. No matter how busy he may be he always takes the time to chat and ensure everything is going well. He seems to truly take a genuine interest in the patrons

Room Tip: If you want some extra space, check into the executive suites. If traveling with family get an adjo...

Stayed at the Talbot on the way to Green Bay to watch a Packers Game. Our experience was wonderful, service, accommodations, and amenities were all first cabin. The location was perfect for exploring the heart of the city. I used the athletic club pass both days and it was excellent!!

Two blocks from upper Michigan Ave and Oak St. and within walking distance of the River North Galleries, the Talbott is ideally located for that orgiastic shopping weekend in central Chicago. (Museum lovers may want to locate further south since the major museums are south of the river.) The Talbott is relatively small, cozy with not one but two fireplaces in a very clubby lounge area adjacent to the front entrance (Perfect for drinks while watching the natives shivering past outside the windows.
Rooms are comfortable and spotless with HBO on the TV and free wifi. The staff are very helpful. For example, we made our reservation through a discount internet site. We enjoyed our stay so much that we asked to extend a day.The desk clerk said to check the rates on the internet and they would match it. It saved us over $50.

Room Tip: Make you reservation through HotelClub or a similar site. It will save you a considerable amount. Pa...

Spent our Thanksgiving weekend at The Talbott. Enjoyed having a drink by the fireplace - the smell was so inviting! The bed was cozy and the environment clean. Our shower was leaking to the floor below so we were moved to a larger room. Judy was very helpful and apologetic for the minor inconvenience. We found all the staff and doormen to be very helpful and friendly. A special shout-out to Dwayne. He was always there with a smile and a fun comment. We have stayed in other hotels with better views of the city, but we enjoyed the quiet nights away from lots of traffic.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and everything was excellent. Staff very courteous and helpful. Rooms were excellent (larger than most). Price was very good also. Will definitely stay again. Only problem was breakfast on the morning we were leaving. Doubled charged us on credit card. when I called they almost fixed it but added another breakfast (now triple charges). finally got it worked out.
