Independently-owned and with a dedication to green practices, The Talbott Hotel has been a fixture in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood since 1927. The hotel mingles old-world sophistication with modern conveniences - the lobby has a cozy, open-fire warmth and the vintage-style boardrooms feature 1920s mahogany walls. Awarded the Best in Stay Award in 2014 - 2015, the Talbott features exclusive touches like the creative Tippling Brothers cocktail menu at the Mercadito Fish Co., and the knowledgeable 'Concierge Blog' on the hotel's site, setting the hotel far apart from other Chicago accommodations.

Friendly staff who will go out of the way

As soon as we entered the reception desk, the staff were so friendly that they will go out of way to ensure you enjoyed your stay. We stayed in room 508 which was larger than a normal hotel room. The Housekeeping staff noticed that we used 2 water glasses for our toothbrushes so she left additional water glasses for us. Looking forward to stay in the Talbott Hotel the next time we are travelling to Chicago.

weekend getaway

We were ultra pleased with the Talbot. All employees were very helpful, friendly, aiming to please. A couple of minor problems ----with room phone and lamp---were taken care of immediately. And we had an apology card with a box of truffles awaiting us with the turndown service when we returned after dinner. We had a very roomy, attractive upgraded king parlor room, bed and bedding was super comfortable, down pillows most welcome. The location was perfect, shopping and top restaurants in convenient walking distance. We would stay at the Talbot again.

Excellent boutique hotel

The room was extremely high end, with a large and comfortable king bed, thoughtfully designed sitting areas and a bathroom with both a nicely tiled shower stall and a deep soaking tub. The staff was very courteous and attentive at all times and the location cannot be beat. Highly recommended!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a red line CTA stop a few short walking blocks from the hotel. If you are coming from O'Hare, take the blue line down to Jackson and walk DOWN the stairs to the tunnel that connects this stop to the Jackson Street stop on the RED line. Then take the red line north about three stops and get off at the Chicago stop. Walk up the stairs and out to the street and walk north about 4 blocks to Delaware street and you will see the hotel. It's a cheap way to get to this hotel from the airport and around town.

Great Location

I stayed in a king size bed room. The room was comfortable and the location was great. It's 2 blocks from the Red line which links up to the loop. Also, if you are attending the local baseball games, the Red line will take you to either stadium. There is a seafood restaurant downstairs, which is usually packed so I assumed it was good. I never tried it because I wanted to eat only pizza and steak while in Chicago. Speaking of pizza, Giordano's is only 3 blocks away and is a good place to try the deep dish pizza. Michael Jordan and Cut Steakhouse is a 10 minute walk away. There is a supermarket around the corner and a Walgreens is 1 block away. A Chase bank a block away so everything is there. It's 1 block from Michigan so shopping, although expensive, is easy. Lastly, this hotel is 2 blocks away from the "beach" which was a bonus. Quite happy with the room and would recommend it.
