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
The rooms were modern and very clean and location was nice and central. The front desk staff was excellent. They were helpful and very friendly. One gentlemen went above and beyond trying to help me get my device connected to the Wi-Fi...a device problem, not a problem with their service. We always felt welcome and very well taken care of. Bonus for brownies and Prosecco offered at the front desk.
Nice seating area outside and amazing views from the rooftop bar.
Parking was quite expensive, but it's Seattle so expected that. No coffee in room, but coffee offered in lobby in the morning.
Overall it was a great place for us to stay on our conference trip.
We had a wonderful experience at the Thompson. The valet parking was a huge help, (I was circling the block to find a parking lot and about the 3rd pass through one of the valet parking people waked out and asked if we were having problems. He let us unload right there and we were off. Check-in was a breeze, the elevator was tricky, my room was clean and comfortable, and everyone was VERY friendly and helpful.
I wasn't sure what to expect having only been to Seattle one other time. This hotel was right in the heart of the Pike Market environment, and was perfect for my needs on this trip. The staff were courteous and helpful, the room (with Alexa!) was a delight and the view from the room was outstanding, overlooking Pike Market and the bay. I would have slept better if it weren't for the time zone change, but the bed was welcoming and super comfortable. By day 3, slept very well. The food at Scout was great, and if you go up to Nest on the roof, you're sure to have a brilliant time.
I’m so pleased my travel agent booked me into this fantastic hotel. It’s very well-located and is of the highest standard.
I loved my room, the rooftop bar and the breakfast each day, but most of all - and what was the icing on the cake - was the attention and help all the staff gave me.
Special mention must be made of Mali and Torey who quickly understood my interests and made excellent recommendations for cafés and restaurants, museums, galleries, sights, shops and clubs.
If you are going to Seattle, you won’t beat Thompson.
Beautiful facility in a great location. All employees were professional, friendly and extremely helpful. Breakfast was a work of art and possibly the most delicious hotel breakfast we have ever eaten.
