The hotel

Achingly hip but friendly and relaxed with it,Thompson Central Park is a superb, central NYC hotel featuring a 3-storey atrium, flooded by natural light, and recently renovated spacious guest rooms that are sleek in design. With views of the lush greenery of Central Park or the bustling sidewalks, amenities that are second to none - including an award-winning fitness centre, and right on the doorstep for Fifth avenue’s lauded shopping. World class dining is also available without leaving the hotel, with signature restaurant Indian Accent consistently ranked among the best restaurants by critics but you’re in the perfect location to step out and explore what the streets of NYC have to offer too.

The service is amazing, the upper stories lounge offers some pretty attentive service. The room is newly renovated and always clean whenever we come back. The staff members are very helpful and we appreciate the 24 hour valet. We look forward to our next stay!

This was our second time at the Thompson hotel Central Park. And both times the staff was welcoming and helpful the rooms were very well decorated and comfortable. The location of the hotel can’t be beat. We will be staying at the Thompson hotel again and again

“Felt like I was going insane” review is accurate. The low-pitched tone reverberating through the walls from the elevator shaft - even in a room not beside it - was maddening. That such a known issue exists and the rooms are still populated with guests is unethical.
