Boutique Chicago base near Michigan Avenue

Talbott, Chicago, Illinois


Junior suite



A boutique hotel within a 1927 building in downtown Chicago – includes a nightly dining credit

Put the "chic" in "Chicago" at Talbott, a joie de vivre hotel. Set in an elegant building from 1927, this European-style base looks as good as new, having benefited from an extensive renovation. Now there’s a state-of-the-art fitness room, and the accommodations and common areas have all received a style upgrade. Feast your eyes on sophisticated new additions to the lobby and visit the exquisite new restaurant, 20 East – which is a perfect spot to feast in general, thanks to its menu of modern-American plates and inventive entrées.

There’s more to this Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Award 2017 winner and U.S. News and World Report Best Hotels in Illinois 2017 pick than a classic exterior, updated interiors and tasty treats. First of all, the hotel occupies a prime downtown location on the Gold Coast. The Museum of Contemporary Art and Art Institute of Chicago are within walking distance, as are the lakefront and Lincoln Park. Some of the more awe-inspiring Windy City skyscrapers are also nearby – and if you’d like to up the chic factor yourself, the steps-away Magnificent Mile is famously synonymous with high-end retail and packed with department stores, selling all the upscale clothing you could dream of.
