Thompson. Lower East Side.

We're staying at the brand new Thompson Lower East Side for our Autumn visit to New York City. The glitzy, slick and super contemporary structure was built from the ground up in New York City's up and coming Lower East Side.

This sister hotel to 60 Thompson, SoHo; Donovan House, Washington, DC; Thompson, Beverly Hills and The Roosevelt, Hollywood to name a few, promises to be all that and then some.

Thompson LES is a luxury hotel located on Allen Street in Manhattan's Lower East Side, amid the creative energy of one of the city's most innovative neighborhoods. Guests are within walking distance of Soho, Chinatown and Little Italy. The Lower East Side features some the city's most exciting small boutiques, restaurants and clubs. The hotel embodies clean, industrial New York style and it does so with a modern flair. Thompson LES features an on-site fitness center and a 24-hour concierge. Complimentary wireless internet service and business services are both available. Guestrooms boast Frette robes, Sferra linens and mini bars stocked by Dean & DeLuca.

One of the Most Excellent details of this property is the pool. A stylized portrait of artist Andy Warhol is painted at the bottom of the pool. Additionally, staff uniforms were designed by Rogan, New York City. Details. Details... it's all about the details. And the experience!
