We visited Chicago for a (virus-compromised) wedding and were really taken by the experience we had at the Thompson. We arrived fairly early in the morning, wet from the rain and without a plan B. Our room was ready and they offered us immediate check in which set the tone for the entire weekend. The room was quite large and the bathroom alone was significantly larger than our previous night in an Amtrak compartment. The location was convenient to shopping and plenty of restaurants, including their own Nico. We dined with Nico twice - once a drop and knock at our room door and the other time for Sunday brunch (outdoor seating). We were really pleased both times. The hotel staff made all the difference and allowed us to tarry a bit past checkout. Great service, great food and a fine room. We'll be back!

Room Tip: We decided against the $$upgrade to the lake view and our city view worked out fine.

We were in town for the weekend and wanted a nice hotel downtown. We were greeted quickly and the staff at the front desk were very helpful. Room was nice and clean with a great view. We will definitely be back again.

The Thompson/Chicago was a last minute but very pleasant surprise. We flew into Chicago only to discover our original hotel (The Ambassador) had closed during the pandemic yet somehow Venture Capital One stili allowed us to book it online. When we called Hyatt reservations in a panic a lovely woman offered to book us at the next closed hotel (The Thompson) with a great AAA rate (better than Venture Capital One could get despite its mistake) and the hotel turned to very very upscale in a terrific neighbhood literally surrounded by nice restaurants and shopping int the Gold Coast Neighborhood and a short walk to the Red Line (Express train). Plus, staff found a wheelchair my for my teen daughter to use for free (she was in a walking boot and too much walking was painful) and allowed us a late checkout because our flight was late in the afternoon. Staff was dynamite, hotel clean and lovely with its own restaurant and traffic was blocked off in the area so the immediate area was pedestrian-only...to serve the 5 restaurants that surround the Thompson. Weekend started as a fiasco but Thompson really turned things around for us. Would absolutely stay here the next time we visit our older daughter who attends college in Chicago.

I held a 3 day meeting with about 10 clients at the Thompson and we could not have felt more safe or more welcomed! The staff honored the strictest of protocols so we were never at any risk but they also created private spaces for us where we could lose the masks and just get down to work! I stayed in their penthouse suite (complete with a patio and pool table) and we did cocktails in my room every night. It was perfect and it felt SO GOOD to be together in person! They also were incredibly accommodating to my group’s dietary needs, special requests and dinner reservations (all within 100 steps from the hotel’s front door). Between the value of meeting in person, that we all felt 110% safe, the opportunity to do cocktails and dinner together – this was not only good business, it was good for everyone’s spirits!
