Gold Coast Glamour
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Poised against the vastness of Lake Michigan, perfectly placed trees and grand historic mansions dot the manicured streets of Chicago’s historic Gold Coast. This is where the Thompson Chicago takes center stage. Within a short morning stroll, you can discover Oak Street’s trendy boutiques, the Magnificent Mile, the beauty of Lake Michigan at Oak Street Beach, as well as the best shopping and legendary nightlife the city has to offer. Our chic, midcentury modern hotel offers 247 rooms and suites in the heart of it all.
From your vantage point high above Chicago, take in views of the twinkling Gold Coast and Lake Michigan, just steps from the Magnificent Mile. Each of our 247 elegantly appointed rooms and suites offers a welcome respite, with 400-thread-count Sferra linens, rainfall showers, midcentury modern furnishings, and inspired artwork that create the feeling of a sophisticated residence. Live like a local in one of our two-story penthouse suites, featuring a billiards table and sprawling outdoor terrace that keep your guests entertained late into the night.
