Best New Hotels
in the U.S.
This hip hotel's innovative style feels right at home in forward-thinking Seattle.
In keeping with the tech-friendly, nature-oriented vibe of the Pacific Northwest, Thompson Seattle encapsulates the best of everything the region has to offer, from stunning views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains to locally inspired cuisine, coffee and cocktails. Local architectural firm Olson Kundig created the glass-fronted, 12-story façade, while inside, mid-century modern design rules the sleek common spaces and six meeting and event venues.
The same goes for the 158 residential-style guest rooms and suites, most featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and high-end touches such as marble bathrooms, luxury linens and reclaimed wood design details. Local culinary king Josh Henderson of Huxley Wallace Collective oversees Scout, the upscale house restaurant, including a chef’s counter where guests can watch the kitchen action unfold from a front-row seat. Come morning, get your day started with a stroll to the original Starbucks for an espresso at nearby Pike Place Market. And cap off your stay with a cocktail and spectacular scenery from hotel's rooftop bar/lounge The Nest.
