Location is excellent. Room is big and nice. Will give you a $10 credit at their bar restaurant for each morning that you decline maid service (excluding the last day of you stay obviously). Staff was extremely helpful. Free coffee in the morning was good.

Just finished a 3 night stay at the Talbott hotel and had a wonderful time. The hotel is conveniently located just a few blocks from the Magnificent Mile and within easy walking distance of lots of shops as well as the Navy Pier. There’s also an L train station just three blocks away which we took to Wrigley Field.

The hotel itself is very clean with plenty of amenities and a decent sized room. However, the absolute best thing they have to offer are the staff. Everyone was super friendly and incredibly knowledgable about the city. I highly recommend staying at the Talbott.

We spent 4 nights at The Talbott in late September. Everything went smoothly from check-in to check-out. The entire hotel and restaurant staff were very friendly. Our room was a generous size and very comfortable. The hotel was convenient to many bars and restaurants. We would recommend a stay here!

Overall its a decent place.

Two things were terribly handled:
1. My first evening..i arrived very late. Tried to get something to eat at the 20E restaurant. I sat at the bar and waited and waited. There was absolutely no service offered. Not even a "hi"...let alone getting a glass of water. I just left after waiting a while. No one seemed to be bothered that I was leaving. Not one person seemed to care that I simply got up and left. There were 3 waitstaff standing at the corner talking to each other....and not worrying about any of the guests.

That was not a good first impression at all!

2. The Shower curtain was very moldy and made the room smell bad. I thought housekeeping would fix that. Until I realized that one has to ask them to fix it. How does the housekeeping justify a stinking bathroom ? These should be fixed automatically.

3. No work table / chair in the room! So, really cannot do any work in the room unless you want to sit on the bed and get work done.

4. My second day here, one of the two elevators broke down in the peak morning rush hour. A lot of guests were unhappy that morning

The good things:
1. The base room is decently sized. Plenty of space for luggage.
2. The best employees I met were the doormen / bell staff. They really cared about their guests.
3. Check-in staff were generally helpful with any needs. Things were taken care of quickly once pointed out. I greatly appreciated that the concierge and one of the check-in agents helped me to get a relatively later check-out. That worked well for me. I appreciated it.
4. The area surrounding the hotel is relatively safe for walking / running.

We had a fabulous time at The Talbott, from arrival to departure. It as only 2 nights and we will stay longer next visit. It's a very elegant and stylish entrance and Dwayne and Charles, the guys who meet and greet us at the entry are delightful. Charming, caring and jovial with a great sense of humour, We arrived early but got immediate checkin to a beautiful suite. Spacious, ultra-clean, modern (newly renovated) stylish furnishings and classy minimalist black and white decor. All top quality including the large bathroom, all the fittings, the robes and the bath products. The Golden Mile, the beach front, the John Hancock Building and The Gibson Steakhouse are all a short walk of 2 to 3 blocks and for real walkers, the river/canal and Millennium Park. are only about 30 to 45 mins. The downstairs bar/dining area was super spacious, super comfortable and the service and the food and drinks were superb. There was nothing to dislike. Loved it. Sorry our visit was so short.
