Thompson Seattle

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 California Kitchen, a restaurant that turns the finest locally sourced ingredients into dishes that become lifelong memories.

Lovely boutique hotel with fantastic rooms and a fun rooftop bar. I actually really like the water bottles and cookies they provide at the front desk. Products in the bathroom feel high end and everything is quite clean. I’ll probably stay here again when I visit SEA.

The hotel is near everything in Seattle that you want to see. The roof top bar is lovely but could use more shade. Our room was quiet and clean. The hotel staff including the front desk, concierge, and valet were very helpful. I would definitely stay again.

You asked what I liked about your facility. Why didn't you ask about what I didn't like. The Keystone Kops and the Three Stooges would have remedied my dilemma quickly. Breakfast in the nest could not handle our group of 41 people. I will not be a returning guest.

We had a great stay and the location can’t be beat. It’s a short walk to the famous Pike Place market and the boardwalk. The hotel is GREAT at communicating and made check in and out a breeze. The valet and bellhops were very friendly as well. Highly recommend.

We arrived early for our reservation (we disembarked from a cruise). While we were waiting in the lobby, we decided to visit the Chihuly Glass Exhibit. We checked Trip Advisor, and it said they were sold out. I asked the young lady at the front desk if they took walk-ins. She was very nice and helpful. She went online to see if they had tickets available directly on their website, and they did. We were able to take an Uber to visit the exhibit. I apologize for not taking note of the staff’s names, but there were two young women at the front desk and two young men at the door. Everyone was very polite, friendly, professional and helpful. My husband and I returned from our first cruise celebrating our 39th anniversary. I’m glad we decided to stay an extra day in Seattle. Thank you for everything! Read less
