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
Loved our stay here - everything was wonderful, including the staff. The only reason I gave the Rooms a Very Good rating rather than Excellent is because they need to eliminate the single-use plastics from the room/bathroom (shampoo, conditioner, etc.) and put in the large refillable options that so many environmentally aware hotels have moved to. Overall, a throughly enjoyable experience.
Check in and out processes were smooth, Trayvon was very nice, took care of us quickly. We were pleased over all with our stay. We had 2 deliveries to our room over the course of the evening, Bret was wonderful, he verified all of our dinner items with us.
My wife and I stayed at the Thompson Seattle for two nights on a 15 day Pacific Northwest tour. The staff was awesome and gave us an upgrade for our anniversary. The corner suite offered up a lovely view of the bay, Pikes peak market is just a 5 minute walk away where you can do all type of shopping. The room was classy chic, the bathroom was very nice, and the bed was comfortable. They have a cool bar roof top bar called The Nest. It's a very popular hang out spot with a beautiful view of the water.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Thompson hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They made us feel very welcome. The location is close to Pike’s Market and close to many nice restaurants. We will be staying here again next year when we go back to Seattle.
First stay at this great property.....nice staff and rooms. I would definitely return for business or pleasure! Location was ideal and I love the boutique feel. Thompson properties are in my top 5 as they never disappoint. The concierge pointed me to a wonderful bar/restaurant a block away, which was appreciated.
