Thompson LES isn't just a hotel, it's a lunching pad for some of the hippest parts of the city. Surrounded by great food and and music, and a lovely walk to Williamsburg. The staff is top notch and has gone out of its way to make my stay outstanding, guiding me to the rooms that show off the city. And what views. The public spaces of the hotel are not expansive, but it hardly matters. With all the possibilities just outside the door, not reason to cloister yourself away.
