The hotel is in a great location for dining and drinks as well as an outdoor breakfast the next morning. It is dog friendly which is another plus for us. We enjoyed a drink at the bar before walking to dinner. There are so many great restaurants near by.

We had an interesting experience with the Thompson Hotel but are happy to report that it all worked out in the end! Upon our first stay, we were quite disappointed. Our room was smaller than expected, smelled bad and did not have adequate sheets. Upon talking to management, we were given an opportunity to return to the hotel complimentary! On our next stay, we were truly treated like royalty and we were able to see the true Thompson Experience. We appreciated the customer service and willingness to redeem themselves.

Location is great, however the overall condition of the room was not up to the standard expected for the price. If the morning coffee is an indication of the restaurant, eat elsewhere. Room had peeling paint. Television service was almost non-existent, shower stall leaked and had been poorly repaired. Toiletry items not replaced with housekeeping service.

Thompson Chicago is a great location and well managed property. It is coming out of the mandatory covid restrictions and it located very close to restaurant and bar options. We used it as a base for our Anniversary weekend where we had great food and a wonderful time at Wrigley and a Bike tour with Bobby Bike Hike on a frigid rainy day. We have decided that we will stay again.
