We spent an extended weekend here in October, 2016. From the bellhops to reception desk, from the concierge to the housekeepers, the staff were incredibly nice, efficient, helpful and friendly. We saw many guests who must stay there regularly as the staff greeted them by name and welcomed them back to the Talbott. The lobby is cozy and comfortable with...

Came for Thanksgiving weekend with our adult children and spouses. Great rooms! We walked everywhere. Really enjoyed the passes to Equinox. Left my iPad and they found it and sent it to me. Concierge was great!

We were in Chicago to visit our daughter and her husband - and it happened to be the World Series. Love the exterior and feel of the hotel, the greeting we received from Alicia upon arrival and the service from everyone! Our room was a corner king and had a sitting area which we used to watch the game one...

The Talbott Hotel Is a small, quietly elegant establishment with old world charm and contemporary appeal. The staff is superb. A friendly smile greats you wherever you go. The location cannot be beat and is within walking distance of the heart of Chicago. Good food, good shopping and great sites are all within a few minutes.

While a little bit older, this tastefully-decorated hotel is chique and full of character. The staff was helpful and warm. The location was great; right by Michigan Avenue and all sorts of cut boutiques. Timed heaters in the restroom and huge fluffy towels were greatly appreciated. The conseilleur recommended a fabulous restaurant, the Imperial Lamian. Highly recommend!

The hotel location is convenient for shopping, dining, bars and sightseeing. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times ( special mention goes to doorman Dwayne). In short, The Talbott is an...

I chose this hotel for business travel because of its excellent reviews. My stay for several days surpassed my expectations. From the moment that I checked-in to the day that I left, I was presented with superb service and hospitality. The room was large and the bed gave me much needed rest.

We have stayed at this hotel several times and love it! The staff is so friendly and the decor is very welcoming, especially at Christmas time. We enjoy having breakfast down the street at Le Pain Quotidien and being able to walk to other restaurants and sights in the area.

Beautiful Boutique Property! Feels a little like Europe, the decor, fireplaces and old school hospitality. We had a beautiful King Room on the 16th Floor. Perfect location, walked to Rush Street Restaurants and local shopping! But it is the staff that makes this place so special! Friendly, knowledgeable and truly make you special!

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
