Thompson Seattle was built as a refuge for those who need an escape from the ordinary. And true to Thompson style, there’s nothing ordinary about this hotel. Inside and out, you’ll find innovation in the details – starting with the design, with glass walls and entire cantilevered floors, as conceived by Olson Kundig Architects. This is the first hint that you’ve hit upon a hotel with an edge, an impression that will only get stronger as you circulate within the common areas and admire the muted palette of grays and blues, then the panoramic views of Puget Sound, surrounding Seattle and the Olympic Mountains.
And there’s the address, too: right in the heart of the action, among all the creativity and innovation that made the Emerald City itself such a melting pot for artists and writers. You’re overlooking the famed Pike Place Market, half of whose split focus (it’s also a major farmers market) is crafts and artisan wares. You’re between Downtown and Belltown, as well, the latter home to the landmark Seattle Cinerama and Olympic Sculpture Park, with works by Beverly Pepper and Alexander Calder. And after exploring both, retreat to your room, complete with custom SFERRA linens and a chef-curated honor bar – the perfect way to end a not-so-ordinary day.
Sleek and modern, the Thompson Seattle guest rooms feature muted palettes whites, blues and grays. Luxuries like custom 400-thread-count SFERRA linens, oversized signature robes and an honor bar that was curated by Chef Josh Henderson make these sweet digs even sweeter.Superior King rooms, with a king bed, look out over the courtyard, while City View Queen/Queen rooms, with two queen beds, offer views of Stewart Street. Water View Deluxe King rooms boast panoramic views of Pike Place Market and Puget Sound through their floor-to-ceiling windows.
Known for its beauty just as much as its culture, Seattle is a mecca for music, cuisine, coffee, fresh seafood, arts and outdoor adventure. The Emerald City is a serious capital of cool, with the energy and nightlife to prove it. Thompson Seattle sits near Pike Street, the heart of the city, which puts you within walking distance of all the best there is to see and do – including Pike Place Market, where you can shop for fresh flowers, watch the off-the-boat “lying fish,” chat with local artisans and order a latte from the one-and-only original Starbucks. Stunning mountains soar in the distance and make it official: You’re in an iconic West Coast destination, and at one of the best placed hotels to experience it.
How to Get There
Great hotel, prime location, walking distance to many popular places like Public Market. Had a quiet room facing the courtyard. Roof top bar, The Nest, amazing views. Front desk staff very attentive, cheerful,and polite. I lucked out with the weather. This was my first time visiting Seattle and I will definitely return!
We stayed overnight to celebrate a family members birthday. It was our first time at Thompson. The room was splendid. Floor to ceiling windows with a great view of Elliot bay and the Olympic Mountains. You are within walking distance of the market.The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend the Thompson to others.
Great hotel. Comfortable beds. Quiet rooms. Friendly staff. Centrally located in downtown Seattle. I would definitely stay here again. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed for construction, but we loved everything else about the hotel
Being a repeat visitor to the Thompson is so pleasant. From the moment we drive up and Karl greets us with a smile like an an old friend to the friendly send off from Rory, our every need is attended to without fuss or fanfare. Ahhhh.
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.
