|Sitting Room of the One Bedroom Suite at the Talbott|
The Talbott is a AAA 4-diamond boutique hotel housed in an 85-year-old building that has managed to maintain its charm without sacrificing comfort. There are sitting areas on each side of the entry hall, with guests relaxing in easy chairs reading complimentary newspapers while a fire crackles in the fireplace. The hotel has spacious 2-queen-bed rooms, 2 bedroom suites and 1 bedroom suites like ours, which included a living room, work area, bedroom and large bathroom with a walk-in shower and soaking tub.
Thirsty patrons can enjoy a few drinks in the bar located just off the lobby, then walk through the bar to Bice Restaurant for dinner. We breakfasted there twice – I had an omelet one day and delicious french toast the next- and dined once – the osso bucco is fabulous. While there is no pool or fitness center on site, hotel guests receive complimentary privileges at the
just down the street. Equinox
The Talbott’s staff was phenomenal – cheerful, helpful, friendly, happy to help – everything you hope for in a hotel staff.
The Talbott is located about a block and a half from the Magnificent Mile on
home to popular tourist
attractions like the Water Tower and the John Hancock building, restaurants,
horse-drawn carriages and scads of shops and boutiques. Chicago
Families with young daughters traveling to the Talbott might want to take advantage of the hotel’s American Girl Package, which includes milk and sprinkles cupcakes at turndown, an American Girl keepsake doll bed, and a $15 credit for breakfast at Bice Restaurant.
