First of all I want to say that the people at this hotel were overall really great. We got good service before we arrived, help with places to eat, etc. That was really appreciated. The room was nice, spacious and the bathroom was big. My issues were 1 - really nowhere to store your clothes beyond some cubes in the... More

One elevator was out all weekend wasting us hours. Our meal in Nico Osteria was very disappointing and included probably the worst frito misto di peace I have teated in my life. Heavy, greasy and bizarrely included fried vegetables. The pasta dishes were boring.

Great location but shower is very complicated to turn on and once on, not that great. Over nite guest parking is $69. - too high. Room was nice, quiet and clean. Employees were very friendly and accommodating

The staff is phenomenal to say the least. They care for your stay! The hotel is in a perfect location, just minutes away from the lake and minutes away from shopping! Hotel was very organized and kept clean, also thanks to house keeping! You rock!

The Thompson Hotel provided the perfect location for our weekend getaway to Chicago. Everything we wanted to do was in walking distance. Shopping , brunch at F&O as well as walking to Oak Beach was within a few minute walk. We can't wait to return!

Love this hotel - very chic and trendy (clearly popular with celebs as I saw model Hailey Baldwin in the lobby). Our room was beautiful with gorgeous lake views and the bathroom had a shower AND a bath. The staff were so friendly and the concierge very helpful. Loved it - we shall be returning!!

A fantastic hotel. Complimentary headphones in the fitness suite, use of the hotel town car instead of waiting for a cab, concierge available at all times, these type of small details set the Thompson apart from the other hotels we stayed in during a 4 week Road trip. Room and bed were spacious and comfortable. Good view from the 17th... More

From the time the valet opened the door, the Thompson lived up to its billing as a top hotel in Chicago. The coffee in the morning set the day up to be fantastic even with the rain outside. Will be staying here next time we come to town!

This hotel is amazing and I would really recommend it to everybody. We came in a taxi and we knew that it would be a great place by the way the bellboy had a joke with a taxi driver because the door wouldn't open! It was very modern and not serious with all the staff lovely. We arrived in our... 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.
