We were on the 20th floor facing East and North so we enjoyed amazing sunrises on the Lake ! Breakfasts are probably the best in town too (the raspberry jam comes straight down from heaven) but...

I've stayed at this hotel many times under many names (Hotel 21 East, Le Meridian, Sutton Place and now Thompson Hotel) for both business and pleasure. The location is perfect for established restaurants and the city's best shopping. Employees are friendly and rooms are nicely remodeled, but the air conditioning unit is so loud you have to consistently change the... More

We toured Chicago on this trip with two of our teenage grandsons, covering the gamut of sites and evening entertainment. Our grandsons commented on our flight home that the hotel was one of their three favorite experiences in Chicago.

The property and room was great. Everyone we dealt with, valet, front desk, were pleasant. Unfortunately the entire visit was marred by something that happened before we got there. When I placed my initial reservation, I dropped off the promo code for $5 parking. I realized my error right away and called the hotel. They told me to call Orbitz,... More

From the moment we arrived at the Thompson we were made to feel welcomed! The front desk was awesome. Kudos especially to Larkin and Cheryl who were especially instrumental in the little extras like acknowledging birthdays with cupcakes from Sprinkles, arranging for the use of vehicles and providing great directions to avoid traffic congestion. Friendly smiles go a long way... More

This place is so fine, I didn't want to leave. Location is perfect. Had a little trouble getting a confirmation but did eventually. I want to go back with my husband to spend time at the chic lounge and definately intend to.

This hotel is all about location . The rooms are beautiful and the view was amazing. The food at Nico was tasteless and definitely not worth 4 stars.Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed for 4 nights and this would be my first choice again :)
