The best couples get-away weekend we've ever had! The Thompson was perfect & made us fall in love with Chicago! We felt very well taken care of. The valet parking was worth every dollar. The staff was kind & friendly. The neighborhood looks straight out of a movie. We loved it all!

Loved staying at the Thompson. Recommend it highly. Location was wonderful. Close to fun restaurants and felt like it was a safe neighborhood. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. They did send us to a restaurant for deep dish pizza that was closed. They should have known that since it was Easter.

Excellent service, great amenities, close to many shops and restaurants, very high end neighborhood, everything is walk-able. Loved it! Mark Roberts was amazing, so thankful for him as the concierge. He gave excellent recommendations for places to visit while we were in town.

Our visit was great. The hotel staff was very nice from the desk staff to the doormen. The food served from their hotel, Nico was the best. I'm hard to please and I didn't have any complaints. I'm looking forward to visiting again in the near future.

What an amazing trip - the hotel was great & the food was outstanding - would not have changed a thing...cannot wait for our return trip! Too bad our next trip is for SanDiego because I would definitely be coming back in June.

I came to Chicago for a work trip and decided to stay in a hotel I haven't tried before. The Thompson was amazing, I'm definitely going to stay here again. I had a corner room and the view was amazing - one side was the city and the other side was the lake, with floor to ceiling windows, it was...

Centrally located near restaurants, shopping and museums. Everything is within walking distance. Staff is amicable and helpful (everyone-doormen, bellmen, front desk, restaurant etc etc). Decor is chic. Bed is comfy (I can never sleep well in hotels, but here I slept like a log.) my 3rd visit to the hotel and I'll be back. Love it more every time!

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
