Room not guest ready
There was no fitted sheet on the bed and the shower was difficult to use, also there were not enough towels in the room for my guest and I. When I told this to the clerk at checkout, there was no offer other than a flaccid “sorry, I’ll tell housekeeping”. Pretty disappointing.

Maybe an off night
I typically love this hotel and stay there regularly. I think I hit them on an off night because it took two room changes after check-In to find a clean room. The first had a bathroom that had clearly been used, and the second had a gnat situation.They did upgrade me and comp my breakfast, so they clearly wanted to make things right—which I appreciated. I will stay there again, but hope housekeeping steps up it’s game.

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.
