A beautiful hotel. This was my first time staying here and I will be back. My king room was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom huge. The hotel is basically next to all the great shops. When I wanted something to eat, there were tons of choices right outside.

This hotel is located in the heart of the "North" shore - the L is available just a short few blocks away and shopping and dining surround the area. There is a cute little park across the street that is great for people watching. You will not find anything out of place - very safe area too.

Wonderful hotel and staff. Love the interior design. Didn't have a change to go to the restaurant but looked great and heard good comments. Location is excellent for business and access to Gold Coast amenities. Renuka the Hotel Manager is amazing.

Wonderful location in a lively residential neighborhood, complete with retail, good restaurants, and close access to the lake. We had an amazing view of the lake, comfy beds and attentive service. We wanted an upscale, boutique hotel, and the Thompson was both--and much more.

This hotel is where you want to stay. I love boutique hotels like the Thompson. The location is perfect. It is surrounded by great restaurants, a couple blocks from the water, close to shops and parks. We got a room with a lake view and it was worth every penny.

This hotel is in the perfect location if you want to be close to designer shops & some lovely restaurants but if you want to be close to the river then it's a 20 - 30 minute walk. The hotel itself is clean & beautifully presented with friendly, helpful staff - just what you would expect from a hotel of... More

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.
