What a stay!! While visiting Chicago for the first time in October 2019, my two girlfriends and I stayed a night at the Thompson Chicago, located in the Gold Coast. (It is a non-smoking and pet friendly hotel!) We were so excited to stay in this part of town known for its shopping and close proximity to deep dish pizza and donuts!! Upon entering, the staff was incredibly friendly and the energy of the hotel was homey and welcoming. The interior is designed with a touch of urban and rustic feel, while still being chic and simple. Our room (photos below) was absolutely beautiful with a view that had our jaws hitting the floor.
The hotel does have free complimentary wi-fi and a 24 fitness center, but does not have a pool or spa. As we were there to sightsee and indulge in classic Chicago cuisine, we were okay without these perks! The hotel also has its own well known Italian-seafood restaurant, Nico Osteria, but unfortunately we did not have the time to dine there!
You bet I set an alarm to see this sunrise come right over the lake and then followed that with a nice hot shower and a cozy robe – the best feeling ever!
Though a short stay, the Thompson Chicago was perfect and such a great location in the city! I would definitely recommend staying here for a small getaway with your loved one, or a friend’s trip! Definitely coming back!
