Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The upscale Talbott Hotel first opened in 1927 as a private residential building. Refashioned in 2006 as a boutique hotel, the property is reminiscent of a grand English manor house, with antique-styled rooms, plush velvet sofas and dark wood furnishings. Its location, just two blocks from Magnificent Mile, makes the hotel convenient for sightseeing -- but since it is tucked away on a side street, guests are ensured a quiet night of rest.

Despite its classic décor, the hotel embraces cutting-edge technology and is certified as a Green Seal hotel. Each room includes free Wi-Fi, an iHome docking station and an Apple Mac mini for guests to check bills and stay connected. A thermostat setting of “eco mode” automatically alerts housekeeping to only change linens and towels every other day to save energy.

Evening coffee service is presented in the granite and marble lobby, which resembles a Victorian library. Afterward, visitors can indulge in contemporary comfort food at the hotel’s on-site restaurant.

The hotel is a five-minute walk from Water Tower Place and the John Hancock Center, while Navy Pier is just one and a half miles away. Although there isn't a fitness center on site, guests have free access to the nearby Equinox Sports Club.
