The best

Would recommend Fri, Jan 8, 2016
Treated like royalty on our first visit (anniversary) and decided to come back this past week for the same occasion. Nothing fell short of our expectations- if anything, they raised the bar even higher! Every trip to Chicago for the rest of my life will have me booking a room here. Get yourself a corner king and grab a bite at Nico while you're in town. You may also want to start saving for a full bathroom remodel- after using theirs, yours will feel like a locker room. Endless praise for this entire establishment- we'll be back soon!

Fantastic birthday weekend!!

Would recommend Wed, Nov 18, 2015
Everything was perfect this weekend. Our first room was noisy and the staff was very sympathetic and moved us to a quieter room on a higher floor. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating and the rooms are very comfortable. The location is perfect! (I grew up one block from here.) This is my second stay at this hotel and I will be back.

Family Chicago trip

Would recommend Tue, Jul 28, 2015
This hotel was in the perfect location. We shopped and dined at the best places in town and it was all walking distance. We took a cab to millineum park and the Willis tower. The original pancake house is right across the street and a great start to the day! Some good dinner options are Gibsons and Hugo Frogs also right across the street. The Thompson hotel was great! The staff was friendly the room was clean and we loved the decore! We heard the hotel restaraunt is great but was booked when we stayed so make a reservation ahead of time!

GREAT Hotel!!

Would recommend Thu, Jul 9, 2015
We absolutely LOVE The Chicago Thompson. We love how unique the rooms are, and that they are designed with an inspiration from men's suiting. Also, literally you could NOT ask for a better location. Niko is also one of our favorite restaurants in Chicago at the moment. Win win win! Only thing I could sugeest is that they remove that darn anti-scalf button from the rooms. It was my husband and I, and also our best friends staying at the hotel this time. They ended up with cold showers because of it. Nobody told us about them, and there was no sign anywhere.

Another winner!!

Would recommend Mon, Jun 15, 2015
The location is the best in the Gold Coast area. Close to everything that you would want. Food, bars, shops and walking distant to the Mag Mile. The out side bellman is the best.(can't remember his name and has amustache). He is an older gentleman who is funny as well as a class act. He is truly a great asset to your hotel. Got us a cab and then would not let us use this particular cab as he didn't appreciate the way the cabbie was going to be. Grumpy and not very interested in providing us out of towners with a fun ride. Love how he thought that we would not enjoy the ride. Thinking ahead for us
