Guests are offered premiere access to many of the city’s most well-known, family-friendly attractions, including the Chicago Water Tower, Millennium Park, the Art Institute of Chicago and all the retail-related splendor of the Magnificent Mile.
The rest of the city’s best restaurants, shops and attractions can be accessed via the city’s transportation system, The “L,” which has a station nearby.

For families, we recommend a Double Queen Guest Room. With 425 square feet of space and two queen-sized, pillow-top beds, it’s perfect for a family of four.

Our first weekend stay at the Talbott Hotel in Chicago exceeded all of our expectations! The hotel decor and atmosphere was warm and inviting. The location was perfect, with many restaurants, bars, and shopping options within walking distance. The staff was professional, friendly and attentive. We particularly enjoyed Dwayne, and his attention to detail and kind demeanor. He’s definitely a positive asset to the Talbott staff. We look forward to staying at the Talbott when we return to Chicago.

I wanted to earn points with Hyatt so I booked a room for the weekend at The Talbott Hotel. This hotel falls under Joie de Vivre and their boutique hotels are really nice. Especially the one in SF, Hotel Kabuki!
Anyway, the hotel itself is really nice. Kind of a lowkey, contemporary hotel. There was construction when I stayed here, but that didn't bother me. My room was on the 16th floor of the hotel. Very big spacious room (1603) and very comfortable bed. The rooms were nice, but a little dated as far as appearance, same with the hallways. Somewhat reminds me of the Roosevelt (NYC and LA) but more bright. This is def. Old Chicago vibes!
The staff was amazing. When I checked in, Josh (the one wearing glasses) was beyond helpful. He went out of his way to make sure everything went smoothly and gave me some insights on the city. Same goes for the bell guys! Houston knows hospitality, so this place is def. up there! Would stay again.
By the way, please fix that other elevator!!
PS: if you're flying into Midway, hop on the train if you're not in a hurry. It only costed me $3.00 or less vs the Uber that would've been $25-30.
And the location is AMAZING! Close to everything. Literally!
