We had the most perfect stay at the hotel. Everyone we encountered was warm and friendly. The room was one of largest of any inner city I have ever stayed at and most definitely the cleanest. One night we called the hotel at 10pm after a show we went to and they called and made dinner reservations for us. Most impressive was on our way to the show we had gotten into the cab they had waiting for us we pulled up 5 feet when we realized we forgot the tickets in the room. When my friend went back into the hotel to get them the bellman had the elevator held for her when he noticed her coming back and knew we were in a hurry! Who still does that? I worked at 2 different hotels in Chicago and have never seen such attention to detail. Hope to return soon!

What a wonderful hotel with a great staff. We decided to spend Easter Weekend in Chicago to visit our daughter who is away at college. We definitely made the right choice in choosing to stay at the Talbot. The only thing tough about writing this review, is that everything was great so it is impossible to single out one above another. The staff was exceptional, treating us like pampered guests from the get-go, advising us on things to do, and hailing taxis for us whenever we needed one. The room was perfect and the apple mac in the room was very well received/used. Location was great too, a quick walk to the magnificent mile and aforementioned taxis picking you up right outside the door if you wished to travel further. I cannot recommend this hotel enough and will definitely consider it again whenever I am in the Chicago area.

There is good service, great service and outstanding service....The Talbott and in particular, Terievis provided outstanding service. I showed up a day early-I hadn't changed my reservation when my plans changed. It was the week of the national restaurant show, when rooms where scarce. Trevievs not only arranged for my room, but got me the upgrade I was hoping for....For those of you who haven't stayed at this upscale boutique hotel, give it a try. You will be overwhelmed by the curtious staff who all know your name and old world charm. Truly an outstanding stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a room ending in 01 or 03, a little more expensive, but worth the money

We had a wonderful time. The staff provides excellent customer service. Dwayne, Bellman, greeted us warmly on our arrival, organized our luggage with his assistant. Our accommodation was a very roomy one-bedroom suite. The staff helped us organize an impromptu gathering. Everything was very clean. Our room was refreshed daily and left in pristine condition. Everyone was very helpful. When departing, Dwayne again helped organize our luggage so we were able to host a luncheon prior to our departure and still make our plane. Will visit again!

Room Tip: We did not use the pool or spa. No time. We had a very roomy one bedroom suite. Loved it!

Everything excellent. Would stay again on next visit to Chicago.

Only a couple of mins walk from the Mile and a little further to the nearest tube station. Staff friendly, great location, clean and tidy

We travelled to Chicago with our two young adult daughters, and we all loved the Talbott, thought it was one of the best hotels we stayed in on our 7 week holiday in the US, and we stayed in some doozies. It's a lovely old lady, elegant and refined, but so comfortable, and the staff are charming. We were here for about 4 nights in January, in the middle of the polar vortex, so Chicago was FREEZING, even the locals were complaining about the cold, and the Talbott was our cosy, warm respite. It's in a brilliant location, many great restaurants in easy walking distance, and of course our girls loved the proximity to the Magnificent Mile shopping strip. We will definitely be back, Chicago is amazing and we want to see it when our eyeballs don't feel like they have frozen in our heads, and we will most certainly stay at the Talbott. It's just lovely.
