Good stay overall. Pretty standard. Nice view. Room was quiet as well. If you're looking for a quiet weekend, not recommended. Only reason being it's in the heart of the Gold Coast, but if you're looking to experience Chicago nightlife, then I would totally reccomend it, hands down.

Boutique hotel where everyone is made to feel special. Aside from the great location (the Knightsbridge of Chicago) the hotel is cleverly designed.

Have been visiting regularly for nearly 4 years now and it’s reassuring...

We enjoyed our stay at the Thompson Hotel in Chicago. I would definitely recommend it. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was really nice and spotless, the location (close to the lake, shopping, restaurants) was great.

A stylish hotel with an excellent location! The hotel's restaurant, Nico Osteria, is a favorite. Cool vibe - Enjoyed the Nico Burger & Rigatoni. The lobby bar is great for a more relaxed atmosphere. Outdoor seating is perfect on warmer days!

We stayed here for a family wedding. The staff from the registration desk were extremely friendly and helpful. In fact, whoever we ran into always spoke and askedif we needed anything. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. Would definitely stay here again

My wife and I went to this property to celebrate her birthday. The location is perfect for easy access to the best shopping and dining options in the Gold Coast area. The room was very nice, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel restaurant had excellent cocktails and the food was outstanding!

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.
