    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!!

I was taking United and was shocked to remember that alcohol wasn't complimentary so I ordered a glass of wine in the airport which the lady kindly put in a coffee cup for me so I could sip and bring on the plane! I also got this yummy shrimp cocktail salad....I figured I should start my travels on a high note. It was a good flight and the seat next to me was empty giving me free additional ...

    ... Most of the hardware was displayed behind lockable glass cabinets, meaning that a purchaser required staff assistance to look at items before choosing. Back at their apartment we helped unpack the shopping bags, leaving Sarah to find cupboard space for all the purchases; Yvonne and I then returned to our hotel to have a quiet hour or two. Following a late brunch, a relatively early dinner had been planned. After reading that it had featured in the 2013 Michelin Guide's 'Bib ...
