Thompson Chicago, Chicago
A gem
An amazing, funky, bohemian hotel. The Thompson has a vibe that mirrors the neighborhood it is in. It is a hotel that is defined by service from the moment you check in till the moment you check out. Everyone seems to treat you like you are there only guest. The room is stylish and comprehensive. The shower is amazing and the towels plush. I can honestly find no fault and it will be where I stay next time in Chicago, without a doubt. A true gem and a bargain that is central to the Gold Coast and an Uber ride away from most Chicago points of interest.

Highly recommend for everyone visiting Chicago
Very much enjoyed my stay at the Thompson Chicago hotel for a recent business trip. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is conveniently located to food and attractions in a safe and picturesque part of town. My room was very comfortable and it was easy to both work and relax. I plan to stay here again on my next opportunity.

The Thompson was perfect for our first time visiting Chicago. Beautiful hotel, wonderful service agents, walking distance to shops, beach, and eateries.

My wife and I chose to stay two nights at the Thompson Chicago for our 10 year wedding anniversary. My contact with the awesome front desk staff began the week prior over the phone when I arranged to have a bouquet of roses placed in the room upon our arrival. The request was handled seamlessly and the resulting arrangement exceeded what I had envisioned. Upon arrival, we met the manager Nicholas who noted during check in that we were celebrating our anniversary. He asked us about our plans, and we told him about our dinner reservations and that we were going to the CIBC Theater to see "Hamilton" that night. He proceeded to contact the restaurants to make sure they knew it was our anniversary, introduce us to the hotel's VIP driver, Murphy, who would later drive us to "Hamilton," and unbeknownst to us, arranged for a bottle of chilled prosecco and an incredible gold leaf topped desert be sent to our room. Each member of the staff we had contact with during our two nights were professional and courteous, but what really made us feel special was the staff's authentic enthusiasm for wanting to make our visit perfect. While I could continue to praise the hotel's unique and sophisticated style, the fabulous hotel restaurant (Nico Osteria), the luxurious beds, or the ideal location within the Gold Coast neighborhood, I've got to pause so that I can plan my next visit.
