$62 to park!!!! Outrageous. I would have been upset with $32, but $62 was CRAZY. No one ever even told us. I even tipped the valet driver $10 when we arrived because I didn't know I was about to get raped. Plus at 5AM we were woken up by someone smoking on our floor. I called to complain and was... More

This space is redone from the previous hotel on this spot. Updated decor, friendly staff, nicely appointed rooms. The location couldn't be better for access to great shops, restaurants, bars and cultural events. The rooms make the most of small spaces with properly scaled furniture without skimping on amenities including large bathroom with nice amenities, robes, corner sofa and nice... More

In every way this hotel makes a statement the moment you walk in the door. Very welcoming atmosphere that is upscale and comfortable without being pretentious. Whoever did the decorating NAILED IT!! Restaurant has good good but pricey. Worth it of you can treat yourself at least one dinner. The lounge is cool too. Standard Room is spacious and comfortable... More

This is Chicago's best Hotel, My daughter got married last week end and we used Thompson as our home base for 4 days. Annarita set us up and from the moment we walked in Gary Syke-Hotel ambassador let us know whatever,whenever, he was the guy to get it done. We live in the burbs, we stay in the city often,... More

Beautiful boutique hotel tucked discreetly in the Gold Coast. Staff and valet service was above and beyond. The lobby and bar is lively as this is a bit of a nightspot on weekend nights. Close to many good restaurants and yet quieter than many on Michigan Avenue. Walk-in shower a plus, nice robes, bath amenities, free in-room wifi, etc. Efficient... More

I had very high expectations of this hotel and it still exceeded them all. The hotel is fantastic in every way, from lobby decor to room decor, with a super-comfortable bed, lots of soft over-sized pillows, a big TV with excellent picture quality, slippers and super-plush robes provided, and plenty of towels. I'm not sure how non-couples deal with the... More

I was in Chicago for a weekend of fun with a really good friend of mine. This time we decided to splurge a little and have ourselves a decadent weekend in Chi Town. The architecture is pretty amazing, incredibly chic and has a very modern vibe to it. Which was a nice change from our usual jaunts. There are a... More

We just spent the weekend at the Thompson for my husband's birthday. From the moment we were greeted at the front desk by Larkin we were treated with great service the entire weekend. The lobby was quaint and modern. The room was beautiful with a great view. The location is the best in the city, right on Rush street near... More

We just spent a weekend in Chicago and were very happy with our choice of hotel. The Thompson is right at Bellevue and Rush. A handful of restaurants and shops right nearby, and Michigan Avenue is just blocks away. Our room was very nice- clean, comfortable beds, understated stylish decor. The lobby was very congenial with many people enjoying the... More

After a year staying in drab business hotel after drab business hotel, The Thompson is a very welcome caffeine shot in the arm if a weary traveller. Warm and inviting lobby, excellent restaurant, clean, groovy rooms... And even a decent desk. As with nearly all hotels, I'd love a brighter desk light.... But don't let this detract from a great...
