I chose this hotel because of the $5 Waffle or wheel promotion. I had to pay only $5 for parking. I really liked their contemporary ambiance. We got a corner room with 2 double beds because we have 2 kids. The beds were not quite comfortably big enough for us to share. We loved the location of this hotel. Just... More

There is no the hotel in Chicago that I would rather stay at. Everyone was so accommodating. What a joy it was to stay at a hotel in the big city that made me feel like I was at home. Larkin, Sean, and Sam made our stay especially memorable. I cannot wait to go back to this wonderful hotel in... More

Located in the Gold Coast area of Chicago, this hotel is a refreshing change from some of the larger hotels in the downtown area. The staff was upbeat and eager to help with dinner recommendations or requests; it seems as though they truly want your time in Chicago to be perfect. I typically stay right on the Magnificent Mile, but... More

Booked this hotel for our first night based on TA reviews and it was fantastic. Asked for a room on a high floor and we had an awesome view of both the lake and the city from our very stylish and very comfortable room. Hotel just around the corner from the huge variety of restaurants on Rush Street and a... More

Stayed one night for a 2 day shopping trip. Trendy feel to satisfy my teenager! Check staff was friendly and helpful. We got there at noon and our room was ready by 2:00. Nice corner room with views on the 16th floor. Location very good for shopping and dining. Room clean and bed comfortable.

Rooms are not large but they are quiet and clean. The bathrooms are very large and there is a small sitting area. The temperature controls all worked well and the room was very comfortable. While we didn't eat at the restaurant there is one there, we went around the corner to the nicest Starbucks I have been in as well... More

My husband and I stayed at the Thompson Chicago over the July 4th weekend at the recommendation of a Chicago native. The hotel was chic and trendy, but understated. It was a midsized boutique hotel with great city views. The location was amazing, with a variety of restaurants in the area and the Magnificent Mile shopping just a 5 minute... More

I am a big fan of Hotel Palomar but wanted something different for this trip. Thrilled to have lived outside my box and would go back here next time. Walked to the lake every morning, less than 10 minutes. At the north end of Michigan Ave - one block from Oak Street. While Oak Street is outside of my economic... More

The great reviews of the Thompson convinced me to give it a try. We weren't disappointed. As the cab from O'Hare drove up to the hotel on a Saturday night in June, we were greeted with a very lively and urbane street scene, with streetside diners at three of the four corners of the intersection. The lobby had an eclectic... More
