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.

We were in town for a friend's birthday and were excited to spend two nights at the Thompson hotel. We had a great room with a wonderful view of the sound. The front desk staff were delightful and so friendly every time we interacted with them. Champagne with check in is always a nice treat. The concierge was super helpful and introduced me to a great salon across the street, Coupe Rokei Salon for a blowout the day of the event. AND they have a deal with them for a great price on blowouts. We spent time in the Nest one late night, a nice cocktail and more amazing views. The hotel is in a great location for all things touristy and for walking around town. We definitely recommend this property for location and service. We also received a great Manhattan amenity sent by a friend. A delish treat to get the evening started. Read less

My wife and I stayed at the Thompson for 3 days earlier this month. I was really excited for our visit because I had heard good things about the propertly and rooftop bar. The location was excellent. We were walking distance from great restaurants, downtown attractions, and right across the street from Pike Place Market The decor inside the lobby was really cool and the room was nice. We grabbed a drink upstairs at Nest on a sunny day and had endless views of Puget Sound. The only thing that I was disappointed with was the level of hospitality that we felt as a guest. We were visiting the property on a short vacation to celebrate a special milestone for our relationship. A few days before check in, I sent an email to the hotel to inform them of the milestone. I didn't receive a message back and just assumed that the notice was read. Upon check in, there was also no acknowledgement and when we got to the room... nothing. I have stayed plenty of other places where the staff has gone out of their way to acknowledge a special celebration throughout our stay. I wasn't expecting an upgrade or bottle of wine, but even a thoughtful note in the room would have been a great surprise for my wife to start our trip. Additionally, at check in, we were told that there was a complimentary service available for guests at a local salon. My wife really wanted to take advantage of the offer and we called down to the conceirge to get the details. We had a pretty flexible schedule the next day and asked for something in the afternoon. We were told that the salon was closed, however they would call to have something scheduled first thing in the morning. We didn't receive a call back until late the next afternoon and by that point, the only time they could offer was during one of the few times that we had firm plans. Again, it was a complimentary service and we were thankful for that, but we just slipped through the cracks and my wife was pretty bummed. We enjoyed our stay and the Thompson and I'm sure that we'd visit again. We felt like the property had a lot to offer-- however our stay would have been more memorable if there was better attention to us as guests. Read less

This was our first stay at Thompson. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The hotel is located in a prime downtown location, within walking distance to the market. We would definitely return and recommend Thompson to others.

Great, fresh, modern property in downtown Seattle, steps away from Pike's Place Market. Excellent staff, from valet to front desk to housekeeping! The in-room coffee is nice, and that rain shower was awesome!
