“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We booked this hotel on a discount site and received a great rate. The staff were excellent and the rooms were modern and clean. I would recommend this hotel. The "rack rate" as quoted to another guest seemed very high compared to what we paid, but I anticipate that as this hotel becomes more well known it will command a high price.

This is just the type of place I love. Not too big, brand new, high end rooms, good location and great, friendly service. They are newly remodeled and the restaurant and bar is not open yet but the location makes up for it. Everything you need is steps away. I will be back.

I found the staff at the Thompson to be very professional and accommodating. My room was clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The location was ideal for my visit. I will stay here when visiting Chicago.

I made my second trip in a week to Chicago In a week and stayed at the Thompson on Bellevue. They all knew my name the second I stepped out of the cab and the service couldn't have been better. They room service is in full swing and the restaurant is opening shortly, but every time I called the front desk I got a 5 star response. I'd highly recommend you check this boutique out.

Room Tip: I enjoyed being in the 08 stack because its on the corner and gives you a giant bathroom and three d...

Visited the Thompson Chicago after a long wait until the upgrade was finished! More than words could say about this hallmark hotel! From the moment you arrive, and the the outstanding staff greets you, to the excellence you find when you enter your room---THIS IS IT!! Cannot wait until the restaurant opens in December! A safe, secure, comfortable place to park after holiday shopping!

Room Tip: The Thompson offers rooms with "Family Friendly" artwork, if that is what you are looking...

I have stayed at the Thompson Chicago twice now. The property is a gorgeous update of an older hotel, but you would never know that it isn't brand new. It is fantastic!

The hotel's location is wonderful. It is situation among Chicago's most diverse restaurants. The Tavern on Rush is just steps from the front door, as is Gibson's. Both are Chicago legends.

The front desk staff are friendly and always say hello.

I will be back!

Room Tip: The hotel doesn't have a "view" of much. It is in Chicago's miracle mile/gold coa...

Booked a king suite for a 3 day stay. Nice, quiet corner room with fab view! Service was terrific. Room was beautiful - USB chargers, free (but slow) internet, super comfy bed and crisp linens, great bathtub, great toiletries, comp morning NY Times, comp shoe shine at night. No rubbish can in main room, no music option, sink drain got stuck and wouldn't drain water, curved sofa cute, but not comfortable (especially to nap on), no bottled water in room (even though they were promoting the comp water), mini bar not ready. Fitness room was nice to work off those duck fat french fries and chicago hot dogs. Comp coffee in the lobby in the AM.
All in all a great stay, but I'm not sure I would pay rack rate for this room (but then again, I never pay retail for anything)

Room Tip: Corner suite was excellent
