Thompson Seattle

Seattle, Seattle & Washington State

The hotel

Like a beautiful, glass puzzle box, this newcomer to Seattle’s luxury boutique hotel scene stands just a block away from Pike Place Market and the waterfront. As such it commands disarming views of Puget Sound through to the distant Olympic Mountains from The Nest – the Thompson Seattle’s urbane rooftop bar and outdoor living room – and many of its rooms and suites – through pulse-quickening, floor-to-ceiling windows. Decorated with elegant materials given quirky contemporary life through an understated colour palette, the look and feel is very much 'comfortable luxury residence'; something that’s only enhanced by a 24-hour fitness centre, complimentary WiFi, and Scout PNW, a restaurant by local hero chef Josh Henderson that turns the finest locally sourced ingredients into dishes that become lifelong memories.

So grateful for the welcoming staff at the Thompson. The location was STELLAR, I am already planning my next trip! The beds were delightfully comfortable, I loved the products and overall aesthetic, and I especially loved that every morning I could walk my dog right by Public Market. You cannot get any better than the Thompson!

Staff is exceptional, we got upgraded to an incredible suite. Hotel is gorgeous, the views were some of the best in the city. Customer service was out of this world. We were beyond impressed and they made our stay so special. This is the only hotel in Seattle we will ever come back to!

I was planning on exploring the area more but got so distracted by the view that I ended up just relaxing in my room and watched the boats. Only thing I wasn't thrilled about was the shower head, hard to keep my hair from getting wet with the rain showerheads.

As Seattle natives revisiting we wanted a central location and the Thompson did not disappoint! Stephanie and staff were awesome helping with a leaky tire appointment and loving our puppy Sox! Great staff and location!
