The Talbott Hotel is one of Chicago’s premiere luxury boutique hotels, located in the Gold Coast Historic District, just steps away from the city’s famous Michigan Avenue. 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.
Each of the AAA Four Diamond property’s 149 guest rooms are elegant and luxurious, and include Frette premium linens, complimentary high-speed wireless Internet, 42-inch LCD TV’s, luxurious full baths with Italian marble and granite, iHomes, bathrobes, in-room coffeemakers, hairdryers, iron and ironing boards, and more.
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. If your crew needs more room, you can also look into two-bedroom suites, which combine a one-bedroom suite with an adjoining deluxe king guest room.
Guests are also offered complimentary access to Equinox Fitness Club, located just around the block.
The hotel’s onsite restaurant, Little Market Brasserie, offers a comprehensive and welcoming menu of fare inspired by classic French Brasserie with an American twist, utilizing ingredients from a variety of regions all around the world. There’s no kid’s menu, but many of the menu items are kid-friendly.

We would have thought about a higher rating but our standard queen room had only 2 drawers and a closet. Probably one of the worst room storage situations we have ever encountered. For the positive: excellent staff, above average restaurant, and small but extremely nice gym.
Although the hotel has changed hands and had an “uplift the staff has remained the same. Being welcomed home when we enter the hotel by Perry the amazing Bellman always makes our trip feel cozy and special like were a part of Chicago. Also the food at the restaurant is incredible right now. Don’t hesitate to book a trip
