We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Thompson Chicago. The hotel is beautiful with lovely photo opportunities and the location is in the heart of the gold coast which was perfect, especially for our out of town guests staying at the hotel. The bridal suite is amazing with great views and made for an ideal place to get ready. The ceremony/reception space is sophisticated and modern with so many options to make it your own. The food was DELICIOUS as the catering is handled by the outstanding restaurant: Nico Osteria. Whitney Dang, her team and the entire Thompson Chicago staff made our wedding weekend truly incredible though. Whitney came on board with the Thompson a couple months before our wedding date so working with someone new after so much planning made me a bit nervous. However, the transition to working with her was flawless. Her attention to detail and expertise shone through every part of our wedding and was more than I could have asked for. From customizing our wedding package to suit our needs to her professionalism while coordinating with our other vendors, working with her was outstanding. She handled every detail of our wedding day and executed my vision perfectly. I can’t say enough nice things about her and the experience she provided! Our wedding day and entire weekend was absolutely wonderful thanks to the fantastic staff at the Thompson Chicago!
Mimi Lopez & her team at Thompson Chicago helped to create the most perfect wedding I ever could have imagined. They didn't skip a beat. From the moment we met, her expertise was evident. The atmosphere was lovely, the food unbelievably beautiful & delicious. The staff at the hotel from the doormen, to the valet & front desk clerks were superb. When we decided at the last minute to order a party bus, and Binny's could not deliver the liquor we wanted, Cheryl the concierge left her desk to go pick up our order. The hotel left no stone unturned for our special day. I highly recommend Mimi and her team for your perfect event.
We were so happy with our wedding at the Thompson. The staff was great. The hotel is beautiful and has a great location. A lot of our guests stayed there and really enjoyed their visit. The best part about the Thompson is Mimi! She made planning a wedding much easier. She was patient and had great advice.
My wife and I got married at the Thompson and many of our friends and family members stayed there over Labor Day weekend in 2015. It was unbelievable. The staff is exceptional and makes your stay so pleasant. They work so so hard! The location is perfect for everyone. They were easy to work with and the food is AMAZING. I can't recommend this place more!
Such a great experience!Reviewed on 5/17/2014 Stephanie I
When the old Sutton hotel became the Thompson Hotel, the team at Thompson helped us with our booking while the hotel was still under construction! They were sure to involve us every step of the way by providing pictures and renderings of what the hotel was going to look like and even gave us a tour with hard hats included. Mimi was really the heart of our experience. She helped organized everything for our room block, vendor entry and gift bag delivery. She was available the day of as we were getting ready and made a special visit to make sure we had everything we needed. She is very on top of it and even kept us updated with guests booking rooms by sending us emails with new lists every now and then. Also, the whole staff was extremely accommodating, from reception to valet to bellhops etc. They even stored our top tier of our cake in their freezer overnight until we had a chance to take it home. The hotel itself is beautiful also. We used it as a backdrop for many great pre-wedding photos. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about it. We cannot say enough positive things about Mimi and the Thompson hotel. We would recommend them to any bride and groom for a hotel room block or now they book weddings/events also.
