      Historical Traveler Reviews The Talbott Hotel Chicago

      Romantic Weekend

      from

      My wife and I spent the weekend at the Talbott in early January- we had a great time! We were looking for an older, boutique style hotel with great service and a warm atmosphere, and we were not disappointed. It is located near everything we wanted to see and the rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated. Coffee in the lobby every morning was the icing on the cake- we will stay there the next time we are in town.

      Hidden Gem

      from

      We are from suburban Chicago and frequently spend the weekend in the city. The Talbott is a wonderful hotel. It has a great location (near Michigan, Gold Coast, Rush Street, etc.) and its intimate size is ideal for a couples weekend. The rooms are great, the rates more than reasonable and the service is top-notch.

      3 great days in Chicago

      from

      We and 4 other couples spent 3 days in downtown Chicago following our son's wedding and enjoyed our stay at the Talbott tremendously. The room, appointments, Basil's bar in the hotel, the sidewalk cafe were all excellent. Our New York friends thought it was the best hotel they had ever stayed in in Chicago! We dined at MK, Red Light and Blackbird - all great dining experiences, especially MK. Went to Navy Pier, the Art Institute including lunch in the outdoor cafe, Egyptian exhibit at the Field Museum, Chi. Arch. Foundation river cruise, Water Tower Place and walks around the 'neighborhood' of the Talbott. A great time was had by all!!

      Another wonderful review

      from

      I'll just add my kudos as other before me have done. The Talbott is a small, european feeling hotel just off the hustle of Michagan Avenue.

      The charming street is a beautiful backdrop to the outdoor restaurant where food is very good. The hotel staff is exceptionally helpful and friendly (Gene the conceirge is fantastic!) Our room was huge, clean and comfortable -- extra nice Aveda toiletries!

      A wonderful property in a wonderful location and a good value for $179/night.

      Big fan of the Talbott

      from

      Add me to the list of those who loved the Talbott. We got a great rate at Quikbook ($109) for 2 adults and 2 children. Such an elegant hotel with the nicest and most helpful employees..from the concierge who equipped us with maps, special offers and directions, to the man at the front door who hailed us a cab and then had the cabdriver clean up his trunk to protect our luggage. Also lovely sidewalk restaurant, great location and good coffee.

      A Great find

      from

      Returned 2 weeks ago from a 4 night stay at the Talbott Hotel. We loved this place and would not hesitate to recommend it. The lobby is small, but nicely maintained. The doorman(Charles) was there to greet us coming and going and happy to hail a taxi if needed. The concierge, Gene, on the afternoon shift, was wonderful! Each afternoon (sometimes, later...) we'd ask him where to go for dinner. He pointed us to 3 great places and got us reservations (EVEN on a Saturday night, when we didn't get to ask him til 5pm, he got a table for 8 of us at a GREAT steakhouse...The Saloon in the Seneca Hotel...GO!) Take our advice, listen to GENE! As for the rooms, we saw 3 different types, and all were lovely. Nicely decorated, warm tones, hunter green/cranberry, clean, no signs of wear. The bathrooms were beautiful. When we first checked in,our assigned room on the 2nd floor, facing (?) an alley...smelled of ciggarette smoke, although we requested non-smoking.

      We told the front desk clerk and were moved the next day to a nicer, larger room.(they had nowhere else to put us the 1st night we mentioned it). Our 2nd room faced the front, overlooking the sidewalk cafe. The bathroom was much larger (w/double sink). Each room comes equipped with an iron & ironing board, hairdryer, wall safe, bathrobes, and Aveda bath products. Each morning we had a USA Today hanging on our doorknob in a little cloth bag, nice touch. Each night, our bed was turned down(no chocolates on the pillow though, you have to crack open the honor bar for those! ) We ate in the restaurant twice for breakfast...there is a buffet, but for $12.95, we didn't think it was worth it. We ordered from the menu. Cheaper and we got to have the srtawberry/ cream cheese stuffed french toast. (MMM-MMM). We had drinks one night outside at the cafe, (again, not cheap!) but, a great place to relax & watch the world go by. The hotel's location makes it the perfect starting off point for sightseeing in Chicago. It's on a side street just off Michigan Ave, where all the action is. A 5-10 minute walk and you're at the shores of Lake Michigan, or at the center of the shopping universe. It was nice to go off the main drag to this cozy enclave at the end of each day. We were in Chicago for a trade show at McCormick Place, which was about a 15-20 min taxi ride away, depending on traffic (or, make that, how fast your driver speeds!)All in all, a great place to stay. We'd go back tomorrow!

      Truly a gem of a hotel

      from

      On the recommendation of a Chicago friend we made this hotel the base for our latest trip to Chicago; if it stays as it is, the Talbott will be our Chicago base for all furure trips; convenient to public transit; convenient to shopping and dining; wonderful staff; comfortable spacious rooms and superb amenities; give this one a try!!!

      Great Get-Away

      from

      We had a spacious suite with a terrific bathroom big enough for two and a sitting room. Traditional decor, excellent service from hotel staff, great location and an invitingly warm lobby with twin fireplaces. A lovely home away from home for our trip. Next time we'd like to stay longer.

      We loved The Talbott

      from

      We can't really say enough about the hotel. It is very nicely decorated and clean. The staff is very friendly and efficient. It is located in a great neighborhood. Ideally located for Chicago sights. The rooms are a nice size and the housekeeping staff does a great job. We loved The Talbott and would definately stay here again.

      A Little Gem

      from

      We've stayed twice at the Talbott. It is a wonderful, small European-style hotel with an exceptional location. We especially loved the outdoor cafe, the excellent staff, especially Reginald--who remembers everyone's name, and Tim--the concierge, who has almost all the answers. He gives great advice. Our room was lovely, and the suite was excellent. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. What a great value!!

      There are many interesting buildings in Chicago, and they are all quite varied in style. Our ultimate destination of the day was to be the tallest of the lot though: The Willis Tower. The Willis Tower was built as and still commonly referred to as Sears Tower, and ...

After watching the bridges rise to let the boats in off the lake we wrapped up (I borrowed one of his wife Theresa's coats) and headed down to Navy pier. It was pretty touristy but that's what we're here to do! It was really windy and cold on the pier so snapped a few photos with the ...

But we got distracted when we got there and went to the Cheesecake Factory instead. I had white choc, caramel and macadamia nut cheesecake which was unsurprisingly delicious. Once we'd eaten we went to go up but our preparation was terrible and it was closed for the night. So we went back to the hostel instead and called it a ...

Up I jumped only to see Rox gesturing at a camera setup next to the next glass platform. We couldnt resist this photo opportunity as the camera was setup really high so could get a great angle of the streets below. Out we stepped again and smiled for the photo. For the comfort of ...
