“A terrific stay from check in to check out”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at The Talbott for three nights and loved everything about it. The location can't be beat for touring, eating, shopping and public transportation. Our suite was spacious, well maintained and very comfortable. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant has sidewalk dining, which is very pleasant. We will definitely stay here again.

From the moment we pulled up to the Talbott Hotel, the 5 star service began! Every employee we encountered was friendly and helpful. It is a beautiful Boutique hotel. From Ryan at the front desk at check in, who noticed our 6'1" 14 y.o. son was walking in a boot cast and promptly upgraded us to a larger room, to Dwayne and Charles who were always at the ready in the lobby with any assistance we might need or request, to the other service staff.....everyone was friendly and very attentive to any needs we might have. This hotel is wonderful. It will be our forever location to stay whenever we are return to Chicago. Even our 14 y.o who was traveling with us and his Grandparents wanted to extend our trip and is asking when we can come back! Trip Advisor only has one thing wrong....this should be rated the #1 hotel in Chicago!

I highly recommend the Talbott Hotel and could not be happier that I made the decision to stay here. You will have a wonderful time in Chicago when you have this place to come back to each day/night. This is a boutique hotel where the AMAZING staff members really pay attention to you. I was traveling with my "older" mother, and everyone was especially kind and thoughtful to her. I'll mention everyone by name: Dwayne who greeted us was an overall wonderful go-to guy for anything you need. Charles was the first friendly face we saw when we arrived, and when we left he arranged a really great car service to take us to O'Hare for a good price. Concierges Roana and Tim booked us tickets for Second City and the wonderful Chicago river architecture tour, and Gene had great restaurant suggestions. And Curtis at the front desk wrote out great instructions for me on which L to take. I cannot thank all of them enough for making our trip a really special one. The Talbott is on a quiet-ish street that really gives you a neighborhood feel, rather than some big chain hotel on a busy street. Still, you can get a cab right in front of the hotel if need be. There's a Starbucks on the corner, and many terrific restaurants and the Magnificent Mile within walking distance. My mom and I were upgraded to a bigger room upon check-in, which I very much appreciated. Overall, I am so grateful to the Talbott for making our trip to Chicago a very special one. I would stay here again, for sure.

I took my wife and 2 young boys (12 & 10) to Chicago over the 4th of July weekend and could not have been happier with our experience at The Talbott Hotel. We're from Minneapolis where people are known to be hospitable and the staff at The Talbott were beyond friendly and helpful. They heard about my younger sons recent birthday and when we got into our room there were balloons, cupcakes & a gift waiting for him!! The staff was always quick to assist from the concierge to housekeeping to room service. We were always greeted with a smile by the staff and they went above and beyond with their attention to our needs. We have been to Chicago several times and will be going back soon as we love Chicago. From here on in, we will only stay at The Talbott Hotel. Thank you to everyone who made our long weekend one of the best experiences for our family.

This is a fantastic hotel - from the rooms and support staff to location you can't go wrong. We were delighted when we were able to check into our room at 9am, well before check in time. We had a superior queen/queen room that was nestled against the lift shaft but we did not hear a sound the entire stay. The room was spacious and extremely comfortable. The housekeeping staff were all delightful and we enjoyed meeting everyone throughout our stay. We absolutely loved the hotel and Chicago and we will be back!

We loved everything about the Talbott. In my opinion, the room was quite spacious and, more importantly exceptionally clean. Service and staff were outstanding. Location is superb. Bath/shower very user friendly.

View? We didn't even check. What we cared about was a very nice, quiet, scrupulously clean place in an ideal neighborhood for shopping and restaurants. Bed was very comfortably luxurious.

Air conditioning worked wonderfully well! A bonus in July...

Free wi-fi is a deal-breaker for me. At a time when so many up-scale hotels want to charge an additional fee ($15 or so per day for wi-fi) this free wi-fi was welcome.

Trying to think of nits to pick (and I love to complain!) I find nothing but high praise for the Talbott Hotel. Check in and out were quick and seamless.

We were visiting Chicago for the first time and spent 3 nights at the Talbott Hotel--based on reviews from Trip Advisor! We were not disappointed! We were upgraded to a great room, everyone was friendly and helpful, the location was convenient--all exactly as described. Gene, the concierge, was more than helpful with great advice and recommendations. Dwayne greeted us when we arrived and brought our luggage to the room. He also gave us great recommendations! We highly recommend the Talbott!

Room Tip: Request a room on a higher floor with windows facing the street.
