I like to think that I know high quality hotels and in many ways, they are pretty much cut from the same cloth. Not so for the Thompson. From the moment I arrived, when the person checking us in (a family of four) I knew that this would be a great experience. She was solicitous, friendly, accommodating, interested and interesting. And that was just the check in!
The concierge was superb (Thanks Cheryl!). She booked us Cubs tickets and provided quick -- while I waited -- recommendations and availability for local restaurants. She immediately knew what I was interested in and had great recommendations.
The bar on the main floor is uber cool without being pretentious. The drinks are not expensive but the drink menu will make you want to stay there.
It's not that I would stay in this hotel when I go back to Chicago but rather I would go back to Chicago to stay in this hotel. Sorry to be so effusive, but it ranks as peerless among the hotels I have stayed in given the price, location and service.
