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.

I travel a lot and didn’t think this hotel was up to par with other hotels in the price range. I booked a waterfront room for a few days for a business trip. I Had multiple issues with housekeeping not coming or they came and did a poor job. Overall I didn’t think the room felt clean. The phone in the room was super annoying and it took… Read more
I travel a lot and didn’t think this hotel was up to par with other hotels in the price range. I booked a waterfront room for a few days for a business trip. I Had multiple issues with housekeeping not coming or they came and did a poor job. Overall I didn’t think the room felt clean. The phone in the room was super annoying and it took multiple times every time to reach the front desk or room service. Apparently when u hit the “front desk” button on the phone it connects h to an outside third party who then relays the message for you? Regardless, I had to make repeated calls back everytime and it was so annoying. The area was very convenient to pike place although the area in particular is loaded with homeless people who were very aggressive. One slapped my phone out of my hand when I wasn’t paying enough attention to them and another was literally shooting up in front of the hotel. Not sure I would stay here with kids. On the bright side, Valet service was amazing and fast and views from the room were amazing. Read less

We stayed in a Waterview Suite as a family for a recent trip to Seattle, and chose the Thompson due to its new affiliation with Hyatt. Although some initial issues occurred regarding awareness and application of our Hyatt status/benefits, management was ultimately able to make everything right, and staff were excellent. The location is absolutely incredible, and the overall design/aesthetic was luxurious while distinctively modern. The floor to ceiling windows and layout of the suite were truly impressive, and the dining options were varied and delicious. We would gladly return to Thompson again. Read less

Stayed here two nights for a quick Seattle trip. I loved the location just one block from Pike Place Market and close to excellent shopping and restaurant area. The hotel had a small, intimate feel with modern, sleek design elements. Service was excellent, with front desk staff immediately available and front door manned at all times by staff ready to open the door and give directions. I had a beautiful 10th floor view of the harbor from my room. The Nest rooftop bar offered amazing views and relaxed ambiance. I sat at the bar at the Conversation restaurant on the main floor and enjoyed watching the chefs display their skills serving me up a delicious clam and chorizo combination. Read less

The hotel is elegant and clean! Our room was perfect; spacious with a very comfortable bed (firm but comfortable for us). I love the floor to ceiling windows, the non carpeted floors, and the mini-bar selections. The room setting allowed a nice romantic weekend getaway! Read less
