60 Thompson, New York

Right from the day it has opened, 60 Thompson in New York is the city center magnet for elite visitors, primed travelers, and super stars due to which it continues to provide great opportunities for people watching and celebrity spotting. Boasting the fusion of the bohemian as well as the modern sophistication, this first Thompson hotel is known for its resultant impact that is naturally comfortable, cool and cozy.

The front entrance of this modern retreat in SoHo setting shimmers with several shelves featuring backlit orchids jars of glass. Further, its magnificent A60 rooftop bar is the best place to soak in the captivating city views and to spot the stars of today (I mean celebrities, not the sky stars), while the worldwide acclaimed Thai restaurant is really a worthy place to fulfill your mind-wishing appetite. No matter which corner of the 60 Thompson you explore, you are bound to get the ultimate New York experience in this downtown Manhattan’s leading hotel. Right from its sophisticated, spacious, and soft-toned suites to luxuriously Italian marbled bathrooms, you stay is granted a perfectly steady ambiance. In reality, the restaurant is the only factor that attracts so many people here.


At 60 Thompson, there are 100 units of accommodations of which 11 are suites. Among the options, there exists King Superior, Queen Superior, Deluxe Doubles (with two beds), Deluxe King, two Thompson Suites, nine one-bedroom suites, and the chic Thompson Loft. The features of the various accommodations are as follows:

  • Two marble bathrooms that are adorned with the floors in mosaic
  • Master bathroom with a soaking tub as well as separate shower
  • An isolated living room that is well equipped with a jumbo pull-out sofa
  • Private balcony from where you can enjoy the clear vistas of the Manhattan Skyline
  • Mini-bar that offers the snacks of Dean & Deluca
  • Amenities such as LCD flat-screen TV, air conditioning, DVD/CD player, free Wi-Fi, minibar, and iPod docking station

  • King Superior Connecting Room

  • King bed featuring 400-thread-count SFERRA linens that is customarily made

My favorite is the Deluxe King that boasts a floor of hardwood. All those rooms whose numbers culminate with ‘3’ come with hardwood floor. The number range is 33 to 123 on the third floor. I suggest going for the higher room for enjoying a better vista, for example, the one on the eighth or ninth floor.

If you come in summer, you can certainly get your top table.
