Thompson Chicago

****

Sleek and sophisticated, the Thompson Chicago hotel takes over a tony address that’s just a saunter from Lake Michigan and boutiques galore in the city’s Gold Coast neighbourhood. Completely re-styled with a mid-century makeover and gleaming new fixtures throughout, this glassy tower makes the most of the sparkling skyline and surrounding city views. And, James Beard award-winning chef, Paul Kahan, will be enticing visitors and locals alike with his take on rustic Italian at Nico. 

Highlights:

  • Central location

    Sleek re-design

    Award-winning chef

Smith extra

Two welcome cocktails

In the know

Also need to know:

The hotel is completely non-smoking. Several rooms are adapted to accommodate mobility-impaired guestsLinger in the lobby, with its custom chandeliers and soaring windows, each morning from 6am to 10am with a strong cup of locally brewed Intelligentsia coffee or tea and the daily newspaper.

Packing tips:

Swap well-worn trainers for urban trekking shoes. You’ll want to stroll down Michigan Avenue, aka the Magnificent-mile – a boutique and cultural-packed stretch – in serious style.

Dress code:

Keep your look cool and contemporary and you'll blend right in with the well-heeled urban crowd here.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Ms Smith and I were headed to her hometown, Chicago, where I’d finally be experiencing the city of my all-time sports hero, Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls. Oh, and not to be overshadowed by my Air Jordan obsession, I was also thrilled at the prospect of meeting my girlfriend’s family. Go Bulls! And family!

Another bonus: we were checking into the Thompson Chicago hotel, which was fresh from a complete renovation last year. This glassy tower is conveniently perched in the fashionable Gold Coast neighbourhood, just a few blocks stroll to the pulsing North-South artery of Michigan Avenue

Dining information

Restaurant:

Nico Osteria, a rustic Italian restaurant with an emphasis on fresh regional seafood and silky house-made pastas is a draw for visitors and locals, alike. Start with a spiny lobster crudo before moving on to lamb capeletti or a salt crusted wild branzino. James Beard-awarded and all-around culinary head-turning chef Paul Kahan, along with his restaurateur partners, are also the clever lot behind Avec, Blackbird, Publican, Big Star and the Violet Hour – some of the country’s most forward-thinking and influential dining hotspots.

 

Top table:

Snag a prime seat near the floor-to-ceiling windows and watch the Windy City whirl past outside.

Last orders:

Breakfast is served 6am – 10.30am; lunch weekdays 11am – 3pm; dinner 5pm – 11pm (Sunday to Thursday) and 5pm – midnight (weekends). The bar is open 10:30am – midnight.

Hotel bar:

Salone Nico occupies space an airy atrium with high ceilings and exposed brick, but the cosy alcoves with velvety banquettes and cocktail tables for two, keep things intimate. Sip a refreshing apertific at the bar or a glass of wine from the well-selected list featuring small producers and older vintages.
