Overview

Lodgers love property's attentive staff
Limited in-room storage, some say

Located in the Near North part of Chicago, The Talbott Hotel is known for rolling out a red carpet experience. In addition to offering standard hotel amenities like a fitness center and meeting rooms, this Joie de Vivre property specializes in truly boutique hospitality. Guests say the customer service here is exceptional and find the hotel's elegant decor refreshingly well-appointed. Visitors love the draped curtains and luxury linens found in the guest rooms, as well as the unique furniture and city views. Accommodations receive mixed reviews though, and some past guests were disappointed with their room's storage options. This hotel appeals to both business and leisure travelers with its convenient location, dog-friendly policies and tasty American fare served at the in-house restaurant, 20 East. But it could be possible that those who love this hotel most are young girls: The Talbott Hotel offers special American Girl Place packages, which include perks like a travel bed for your American Girl doll, milk and two Sprinkles cupcakes at turndown, and for an additional fee, a horse-drawn carriage ride to American Girl Place on The Magnificent Mile.

Built in 1927, this European-style boutique hotel has a lobby that calls to mind an English manor house and elegant accommodations that mix the classic and contemporary.

Frommer's

READ MORE 

What comes as a pleasant surprise, in contrast to the old-world sensibilities and antique-styled rooms, is its embrace of technology and its certification as a Green Seal hotel.
