Very modern, clean and comfortable room with modern bathroom. Separate shower, toilet and wash areas make it convenient. Fantastic views. The restaurant has excellent food and very good service. Good location in Manhattan and easy access to Chinatown, Little Italy and Lower East Side location. Only negative was the daily $15 fee for internet. It's one of the few places still charging fees for internet.

Room Tip: Rooms are small, so it is the type of hotel that you want to be out on the town. Best views are roo...

The staff exceeded expectations: we had checked into our room but there was an issue, so within minutes Justine placed us in another room (suite upgrade) and made sure all our needs were met. This doesn't happen all the time and it was greatly appreciated. Valets were very helpful, friendly as were the bartenders and waitstaff. Room was large, very cool, and had a great view of lower Manhattan. I look forward very much to coming back and staying at the Thompson LES. Robert

The Thompson LES is an excellent hotel for exploring the Lower East Side. The rooms are modern and comfortable, and the staff is friendly. The hotel is close to amazing bars, restaurants, and shopping. We'll be back.

I found Thompson LES to be comparable to other boutique hotels I have tried in most respects, with the notable exception of their service, which greatly exceeded my other experiences.

In particular, our reservation was complicated as we had three rooms booked using booking.com, we changed the names under which the rooms were booked, we cancelled a room, we arrived at different times so the confirming credit cards were not always from the people who were staying the room, etc. This created a few billing issues a the end which I do not attribute to being the fault of Thompson, more to do with the complexity of the transaction(s). They remained professional, cordial and helpful at ALL TIMES during the discussions that I had with various staff, in particular Sebastian at the front desk, with whom I spoke numerous times. In fact, they were helpful on premise, by email and by phone. They also tried to make sure we understood what the next steps were and made recommendations for follow-ups that were beyond normal service requirements. They never made us feel as though we were being unreasonable and apologised numerous times for any adjustments that needed to be made. In other hotels, I could imagine a somewhat less courteous approach would prevail.

In terms of the rooms, etc., they were reasonably sized and decorated for an upscale boutique hotel. The bar service was also excellent.

The gym was slightly cramped, but functional and did not feel so much as if it were in a basement (which it is).

Hats off and a big thank you to them!

Room Tip: If you can afford it, their deluxe double rooms are a more comfortable size. We slept four or five t...

Thank you very much for sharing your feedback. We certainly love a challenge here so please never worry about your reservations being to complex. Just as Sebastian and the team did, we will always take as much time as needed with each guest personally to ensure that everything is perfect.

Excellent tip on our double deluxe rooms. With two queen-sized beds, floor to ceiling windows and 400 square feet of living space, they are a great option for families and groups.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

All the best,

Joe

Thompson LES is in a great little spot which has a very neighbourhood type feel to it. A number of Manhattan's coolest locale's are within walking distance. Rooms are spacious and comfortable if a little on the dark side. Staff are really friendly and helpful ... particularly in the hotels' bar Above Allen which has 2 nice terraces with some impressive views of the city.

My husband and I stayed in the Thompson LES hotel for a wedding weekend (wedding took place a couple of blocks away at the Angel Orensanz Foundation venue). We could not have afforded to stay here without the discount rate that the bride was able to get for her bridal party, so we feel very lucky to be able to write this review because it was fantastic! We love the LES neighborhood to begin with (Katz Deli right around the corner), and this was comfortable and trendy hotel that made us feel very special. The room service was spot on and also very reasonably priced. The fitness center felt like a spa and had high quality treadmills and weights. We also enjoyed the bar on the 7th floor as well as the sushi restaurant. We really took advantage of everything this hotel had to offer, and we were pleased with it all. The room was super trendy yet spacious with an amazing view and big digital art above the bed that you could change with a remote.

Room Tip: I heard that other wedding guests who stayed on the lower floors (especially the 6th floor) found it...

Great, detailed review! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with everyone. Excellent tip about the lower floor rooms, as well. Above Allen, one of the most popular bars in the lower east side, is located on the 7th floor of our hotel, so it’s a great idea to request a room away from that area should you have plans on retiring early in the evening on the weekends.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
