The Thompson Chicago soars high above tree-lined streets in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood. This accommodation showcases classic architecture with traces of Gothic influence. Located 1 block from the Magnificent Mile's world-renowned shopping corridor and the electric nightlife along Rush Street, this hotel stands 2 blocks from Oak Street boutiques and the hike-and-bike path along Lake Michigan. The Observatory and the Museum of Contemporary Art are located 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from this property. The Thompson Chicago is also close to the train station.
"Trendy Boutique Hotel with Great Location"
We really liked this place. Gold Coast neighborhood just a few blocks off the north end of Michigan Avenue (5-10 minute walk). Upscale shopping and restaurants also nearby (our favorites Hugos + Starbucks very close) and some interesting old homes. Modern euro styled rooms. Clean. Wifi worked well. Nice bar (try the Moscow Mule). Did not try restaurant (connected to but not run by hotel like bar). Professional staff. Doormen were very friendly and helpful, too. Not cheap, but reasonable for location. Actually less than we expected, but that may have been due to time of year we visited.
"Post Valentine's Day Retreat"
Good stay overall. Pretty standard. Nice view. Room was quiet as well. If you're looking for a quiet weekend, not recommended. Only reason being it's in the heart of the Gold Coast, but if you're looking to experience Chicago nightlife, then I would totally reccomend it, hands down.
Great Location and great hotel. Check in and out was fast and staff was personable and helpful. Rooms were clean and up to date. Bathrooms had large showers with rainheads. Convenient to Rush street restaurants and shops
Very nice hotel, great location Excellent service from the front desk to the bellman Felt very pampered Room was very spacious and clean Bathroom very large and loved the large windows Close to many restaurants and easy walking distance to shopping and the water
Boutique hotel where everyone is made to feel special. Aside from the great location (the Knightsbridge of Chicago) the hotel is cleverly designed. Well appointed rooms with quality bed linen and good attention to detail. Excellent showers, great toiletries, quality furnishings without a corporate edge. Warm, friendly staff. Have been visiting regularly for nearly 4 years now and it’s reassuring to see the same staff. Clearly the staff like working at the Thompson and not shows.
