10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Room was well appointed and gorgeous - well laid out with an L shaped seating area , great bed, lighting and tech charging ports . Lovely staff .
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Very hospitable. Staff very forthcoming. Nice space!
6.8 Okay
Pros:comfy bed, great location, nice lobby.
Cons:Front desk lady was not very helpful. Toilet smelled like sewage. They called me from front desk to tell me someone was at my door from hotel personnel when I had privacy sign on...that woke me up...What kind of "privacy on" is this?
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Nice Interior Design. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. This is a much better location than other hotels I have stayed at further south. We took a very nice walk north to Lincoln Park. It is a beautiful neighborhood and does not even feel like you are in the city.
Cons:Too pricey for me to use other than business. I did not need or use "facilities" so that is the only reason I did not give that an "excellent" score. We were not impressed with the breakfast food. We were very pleased with our lunch at Gibson's across the street.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Fantastic location, outstanding room. Would go back in a minute.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The Thompson Hotel Staff were amazing, very friendly and accommodating. We were upgraded to a corner king suite as it was our wedding night so that was a pleasant surprise as well. Overall wonderful experience. Would definitely go back.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We loved everything about it. From the very beginning (checkin) till the very last second before we left the hotel. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. The Concierge made arrangements for a boat trip on the Chicago River. Housekeeping kept our room in perfect shape. We had a room on the 21st floor which had the perfect view towards the chicago skyline. It was awesome. I gladly recommend to visit the Thompson Chicago and will for sure also book on other occasions other Thompson hotels. Thank you for this very wonderful and perfect vacation, Thompson.
8.0 Very good
Pros:People are friendly Restaurant is very good Design is current Beds are comfortable
Cons:air conditioning unit in room was loud
9.1 Wonderful
