3 day weekend in Chicago, no car, and two couples, where to stay? The Talbott Hotel was the perfect choice! We arrived on Friday night, exhausted, and our rooms were across the hall from one another - how convenient. We started with drinks in the bar, which turned into an excellent dinner at Bice, the Italian restaurant connected to the hotel. (They also provide room service.) The martinis were superb, and the dinners were all delicious. Late night chocolates on the pillows, friendly, helpful staff, attentive concierge with great ideas of where to go and what to see. The location is very convenient. We took the CTA from O'Hare and Midway airports, arrived 2 blocks away at the Chicago Ave. Redline stop, and were able to go to Second City, Legends, the Art Institute, Field Museum, Millenium Park, the Zoo and Lincoln Park, and anywhere else on an easy to use 3 day pass. The bus stop was right across the street if the red line didn't go where we wanted. Great choice!

Room Tip: To take advantage of the bell staff or ask someone to explain all the high tech equipment, and be sure that it is working. The television also has a computer, Netflix, games, etc. There is wireless, doorbells to each room, green button to push for environmentally concerned patrons, and more...

We flew into Chicago for a weekend getaway. The Talbott was lovely. Great location. Beautiful lobby. Friendly staff! Everyone from the doorman to the front desk staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

Trust the reviews. If you demand a big hotel with all of the amenities, go elsewhere. If you want a pleasant hotel in the heart of the action but still a bit off the beaten path, The Talbott is a great choice.

Went to Chicago for a relaxing weekend after the holidays. We had often walked by Talbott in previous visits, and decided to stay here due to that and the Tripadvisor reviews.

First impressions: Very European in style, small reception area, cosy nooks with fireplaces, but most especially, extremely welcoming staff (shout out to Bellman Dewayne!).

We booked an Executive king room. It was nice and large, with comfortable king bed, nice linens, large bath the separate huge shower and soaking tub. It was very clean. I would say the carpet looked a little rough and should probably be replaced soon, but again it seemed clean. The rate was $225 per night, plus a $15 credit per person for breakfast at the adjoining restaurant, which doesn't really cover breakfast, but puts a nice dent in it.

Loved the fact they have rich bath sheets, not scrawny cheap bath towels. The room had two robes, but they were quite small and not soft, mine barely closed and I am not an overly big gal.

The state of the art TV is a hoot, with great internet options, including hooking up to your own Netflix account. The wi-fi was a little slow and spotty, but it was free, so not a problem.

Our room was right next to the elevator, and I was afraid it would be noisy, but it was nice and quiet, except for some street noises to be expected.

The only problem we encountered was the maid waking us up on our last morning when we were sleeping in. We had the privacy knob/latch turned on our door, but I don't know if it was broken or she just didn't see it. I would hazard a guess we were not the only guests who experienced this. I suggest going back to the old fashioned door hangars so this doesn't happen.

Overall it was a great stay. We appreciated feeling so welcomed each time we returned. The room was nice, and the price and location are ideal. We will be back, just please let us sleep in, we don't get to do that at home!

I lived in Chicago for 5 years and recently went back for a visit with my husband. We had the BEST stay at the Talbot, and I'm so excited to make this my new go-to hotel for future visits to Chicago. The staff was really accommodating and warm, the hotel is updated and beautiful. The location is amazing. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the room service was super speedy. This is a boutique hotel with character and class...like a mini Ritz at a much better value. I would definitely recommend this hotel and can't wait to stay there again.
