Hmmm. Used to be very chic, but losing out on a few maintenance issues. Feels cold in terms of design, and in terms of draughtiness. Staff are not super-friendly. My jacket I put in for dry-cleaning was ruined, and there was not effort to resolve the problem- emails went unanswered. I wouldn't stay here again simply because the Rivington is nearby and has more guest-friendly benefits. The James in Soho is a lot more welcoming, friendly, warm and luxurious than this hotel and is in a similar price range.

Stayed: March 2012, traveled on business

I stayed here for 5 nights for our first trip to NYC and I would definitely stay here again. the location is good if you don't mind walking (about 40 mins to time square or 10 minute taxi ride) but its a nice walk through the city.
The hotel room was really nice, it had floor to ceiling windows and you can see the financial district and the empire state building.

its nice to stay on the lower east side. the closeness to great restaurants and subway is smashing! great rooms I've stayed here twice, with comfortable bed. Clean and perfect shower. I of course like to stay high in NY to have view of the city and this is the best. Swimmingpool ok. I loved the fitnessroom.! It can be noicy since the rooms are not very well isolated but it mostly depends on the neighbours party mood or not!

As a frequent traveler and as an adult I stayed over the years in many NYC hotels. I the last 3 years years I reserve regularly at the Thompson LES. Why? Because I love the unique positive energy that I find in this hotel. It is in the lobby. It is in the rooms. It is in the comfortable bed. I get it from the professional and helpful young staff. The rooms are always c l e a n! I always feel great there. The location is just great to a person like me who looks for the best of the young energetic NYC. So many great restaurants all over the place. A truly great value!

Room Tip: Great rooms at the 10th floor and up

I was a bit worried about the location, but the Lower East Side is probably the most happening area in New York right now.
The hotel is gorgeously designed, excellent service, and the room (Studio Suite) was huge!
I loved their new restaurant, Blue Ribbon. Next time I will come in the summer so I can enjoy the pool.

This has to be one of the best - if not the best - boutique hotel in Manhattan. Our studio king room was HUGE. It was also well appointed and beautifully designed. It was the nicest accommodations we have enjoyed in New York: great style, great service and a wonderful neighborhood. The Lower East Side is Manhattan's most lively and exciting district. The Thompson LES is located directly across the street from a subway station and several neighborhoods - The Bowery, Soho, NoLita, the East Village and Chinatown - are within easy walking distance. There is so much to see and do in the immediate neighborhood - restaurants, clubs and stores - and the streets are thronged with people at all hours of the day. You can't go wrong with the Thompson LES.

Overall
Highly recommend this hotel for its location and room size -- hotel is expensive in general but moderately-priced as compared to other NYC hotels!

Hotel room
Reasonably-sized hotel room, especially for NYC. Four of us stayed in a regular guest room with a king-sized bed and a pull-out couch, and I never felt like we were stepping all over each other to get from one side of the room to another. The king-sized bed was really hard, so I personally found it hard to get a good night's sleep. The bathroom didn't offer tons of privacy because the shower was made of frosted glass. So, you can see the outline of the person in the shower. The bathroom door also slides closed and is frosted glass, so you can see in from the side. It's ok, if you're staying with friends. Otherwise, the shower is huge and has a great rain shower.

Hotel Location
This hotel is in an awesome location on the Lower East side, right near cute boutiques, great restaurants, and some touristy spots (e.g., Russ and Daughters, Katz deli).

Hotel Service
The hotel service was impeccable. The bellhops are very friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to store our luggage after check out, until we were ready to head to the airport or train station. The hotel was extremely helpful with restaurant and nightlife recommendations. They recommended some really cool, below the radar spots.

Hotel Amenities
A perk of the hotel is that it has a roof-top bar and all hotel guests are guaranteed entrance without cover charge. When we went (Sat. night around 11pm), it already was packed, and oddly, the demographics heavily skewed male. It was a very well-heeled and trendy crowd.
