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.

Been here for less than 12 hours. Wish I never came. Tiny room over 550 a night. Turn down service was the photo below. Left our dirty towels. No clean ones. But we got dumb music playing. This hotel is beyond horrific

Without a doubt this is a beautiful hotel. The room was gorgeous but there are a few niggles. It is obviously aimed at a very young clientele to the extent that anyone over 35 feels slightly out of place. The staff dress mostly in an inappropriately casual way and some even look grungy. There is no information in the room about hotel amenities. We… Read more

There is no information in the room about hotel amenities. We were told these were on the TV but this facility did not work and the staff mostly don’t seem to know what to tell guests. The restaurant Conversation was great for breakfast but we did not eat there for dinner, even though that would have been convenient, as the menu was pretentious and contained mostly items like rabbit and pigs head. The bar on the roof was lovely but again aimed at young people. The location is second to none but if they are not careful they will alienate older guests . Definitely not a patch on the Shangri La Group Read less

This is a nice hotel if you want something centrally located as not far from Pike Market and waterfront. It is very expensive for parking though !! $50 per day which I think is over the top. Also I noticed some guests were offered champagne on arrival which we weren’t (not sure if it was because I did not book direct with hotel) also the Nest… Read more
This is a nice hotel if you want something centrally located as not far from Pike Market and waterfront. It is very expensive for parking though !! $50 per day which I think is over the top. Also I noticed some guests were offered champagne on arrival which we weren’t (not sure if it was because I did not book direct with hotel) also the Nest rooftop bar was lovely if you could get in it. They should definitely have a section for hotel guests only as it is open to the public and just gets overrun. We only managed to get in there once during our 4 night stay and that was when it opened at 3pm. Room was ok - I didn’t get the upgrade I thought I might but the hotel was full so assume that was why. Also have it is fun trying to work the lift - we spent a good 10 minutes going up and down before it would work properly and take us to the right floor and we weren’t the only ones. All in all a good hotel but would not necessarily stay there again. Read less

Beautiful hotel, feels very clean and new, and you can't beat the location! Valet service and all the staff were great. They accommodated my late checkout request with no hesitation. Overall we really enjoyed our stay, but I have two small complaints. On the list of amenities it says there are soaker tubs, which is untrue and misleading. And on… Read more

Overall we really enjoyed our stay, but I have two small complaints. On the list of amenities it says there are soaker tubs, which is untrue and misleading. And on the website while booking, it states there is a spa and gym, but neither one was mentioned when checking in. Read less

Absolutely gorgeous hotel and SO close to everything we could ever want in Seattle! They were extremely accommodating and the rooftop was the highlight of our Thompson stay! Loved the drinks and sunshine 😍
