About Us

Nestled in the heart of downtown Chicago’s trendy Gold Coast neighborhood, the Thompson Chicago is a boutique hotel and special events venue catering to those who expect nothing but the best. To-be-weds in search of a sophisticated setting for their ceremony and/or reception will find a range of elegant private spaces ideally suited to their needs while couples and any guests staying on-site can enjoy a range of spacious, stylishly appointed rooms, suites and bi-level penthouse accommodations as well as an array of other fabulous amenities and services.

The all-inclusive wedding packages at the Thompson Chicago provide everything needed for a truly stunning affair, including mouthwatering catering from Nico Osteria, one of the Windy City’s most renowned restaurants. Thompson Chicago can accommodate both more intimate and larger functions in its private event spaces.

Chicago 7 ballroom. The venue’s third floor is dedicated entirely to private event space. Arriving by the private elevator, guests enter the spacious pre-function area, which makes an ideal spot for a receiving line or as a place for guests to mingle over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres prior to the reception dinner. Adjoining this space are the Davis, Dellinger and Hayden rooms, which can either be used separately or combined to create the grandiose Chicago 7 Ballroom. Measuring more than 3,900 square feet, this beautiful ballroom can accommodate up to 280 guests and has floor-to-ceiling windows that provide fabulous views of the surrounding neighborhood.

Fourth floor event spaces. The hotel’s fourth floor is home to four smaller rooms: Hoffman, Froines, Rubin and Lee Weiner. Like the third floor, this area also has a large pre-function space outside the rooms. The Lee Weiner room and elegant Froines room, with its stylish wood paneled walls and massive floor-to-ceiling window, are both slightly larger than the other two and can accommodate approximately 60 guests.


What You Should Know

While the private event spaces are undeniably beautiful, the world-class cuisine offered by Nico Osteria is just as stunning, both to the eye and to the palate. The restaurant’s two executive chefs are famous for their inventive seafood dishes and gourmet favorites while its pastry chef is equally as renowned for her innovative desserts and pastries. To-be-weds work directly with Thompson Chicago’s event specialists and the caterers to design a custom three-course menu with salad, entree and dessert.

Although each wedding package can be customized to fit your needs, the catering menu generally includes your choice of passed hors d’oeuvres, a four-hour open bar and a three-course plated meal. Also included are a complimentary champagne toast and house red and white wine service during dinner. A beautiful ceremonial wedding cake and a tray of assorted pastries and sweets created by Nico Osteria’s executive pastry chef are provided for dessert, along with coffee and tea.


Extra Perks

Thompson Chicago strives to make every wedding a truly special occasion, offering a number of additional concessions to the couple and their wedding party. Discounted room rates and discounted parking are available for all wedding guests. As well, couples are also treated to all of the following extra perks:

  • Complimentary floor-length table linens and napkins
  • Romantic custom up-lighting throughout your chosen space
  • Votive candles for all guest tables
