Completely refurbished and re-branded, the hip Thompson Chicago arrived on the Chicago hotel scene to much anticipation in October 2013. Its 22 storeys rise above one of Chicago’s most exclusive residential neighbourhoods, perfectly situated to take advantage of the city’s high-end shopping and restaurants.
Michigan Avenue retail shops (Louis Vuitton, Burberry), Oak Street luxury boutiques, popular restaurants (Chicago steakhouse institution Gibson’s) and Rush Street nightlife are all within several blocks of the hotel.
It's also ideally situated for sightseeing, with attractions like the Willis Tower a short cab or "L" train ride away (The nearest station, Clark and Division on the Red line, is six blocks from the hotel).
The hotel's recently opened Italian seafood restaurant -- Nico Osteria, which was crafted by Paul Kahan’s group (past winners of the prestigious James Beard Award) is also causing quite a buzz. Kahan and his team are responsible for some of the city’s most innovative fine-dining establishments, including Blackbird, avec, and The Publican. For cocktails and more casual dining, there's Salone Nico.
The Thompson's rooms feature a modern, Art Deco-inspired feel with interesting artwork and details such as plush velour banquettes. Most rooms offer city views, with some claiming views of Lake Michigan, and the loft-style corner suites affording the best vistas. High-end amenities include minibars stocked with gourmet Dean & DeLuca snacks, and upscale spa bath products.
There is a 93-square-metre fitness centre open 24 hours and free Wi-Fi is available in all of the rooms.
