On June 1, Thompson Seattle will open its doors and bring a much-needed addition to the Downtown Seattle hotel scene. The first Pacific Northwest property from Thompson Hotels, the 158-room hotel stands at the corner of 1st Avenue and Stewart Street close to Pike Place Market and will also include 10 suites, a signature restaurant, a rooftop bar and lounge, and more than 5,500-square feet of indoor and outdoor event space.
Thompson might be new to the region but they relied on an architectural firm that knows it quite well: Olson Kundig. The noted architectural firm designed the 12-story structure. Meanwhile, Studio Munge and Jensen Fey handled design and did so with the local history of the aviation industry in mind. Rooms boasts a mid-century modern aesthetic and feature a mixture of technology and textured materials.
Huxley Wallace Collective restaurant group is behind the hotel's food and beverage operations. They include Scout, a 75-seat restaurant with sidewalk and courtyard access that offers dishes full of regional ingredients. The restaurant features the Chefs Table which seats up to 18 guests as a spot to showcase "hyper-local ingredients through edgy, highly-curated, multi-course tasting menus." There's also The Nest, an indoor-outdoor rooftop bar and lounge that takes full advantage of Puget Sound views. In-room honor bars feature bespoke treats and artisanal beverage offerings from Executive Chef Josh Henderson.
Introductory rates start at $279 per night or $679 per night for suites. For more information on booking rooms or otherwise, visit ThompsonHotels.com.
