“Simply outstanding.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

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.

We stayed 7 nights. We loved the location, room ( we had a standard room on the 17th floor) is ok, bed was good and shower comfortable.
When we checked in, staff was very busy looking around and found it difficult therefore to answer our questions. We were informed that there was a restaurant on the second floor and that was it.
Rooms where cleaned every day. They do turn down service: you get a chocolate, ice and fold your duvet and turn on your tv.( when you're out)
As we got married on the wednesday and it was my birthday, friends had champagne and cupcakes and macarons delivered to our room. The hotel did not ask what it was for or leave a note with congratulations or anything which would have been thoughtful.
The staff working front office the beginning of our stay found it very difficult to greet as they were too busy chatting with each other. That came across as quite arrogant. Overall it was ok, but the staff did nothing to exceed expectations.

Hotel was clean. Front desk, concierge and cleaners were all friendly and helpful! Would definitely stay there again. Hotel is about a 15 minute walk to Soho. No issues with the rooms. Clean and furnished with modern fixtures. Room size was perfect.

First time at the Thompson LES...loved it great location, super central to everything downtown and below. There were some issues with the room booking when I arrived; however, Robert at the front desk was amazing and went above and beyond to ensure that we were inconvenienced as little as possible while throwing in some little extras as well. I travel quite a bit for work and this customer service was the best I've had at any hotel I've stayed at. The doormen were also really friendly, fun and helpful.

Room was really big and spacious and really stylish. Rarely in my room while in NYC, but glad to return to this one each night.

If you've stayed at a Thompson before, you already know the deal. The LES is quite in line w/the kickassery Thompson is known for - modern, edgy, low lit, in the interesting parts of town, and most importantly, amazing staff. They give spot-on recommendations for places to eat and things to do, yet won't judge you during check-out when clearly showing evidence of a debaucherous romp through town in which you may or may not have incited a competition of "industry skills" with some dancers of the exotic (and winning, I might add) among other shenanigans.

If you're in the know, you want to stay here.

Room Tip: Room 1500 is a gem, corner suite w/balcony and killer view of the city

I've stayed at the Thompson LES several times when I visit my son, who lives a few blocks away. I have stayed in other hotels within a short distance and found they don't compare to the Thompson.
The employees are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are amazing. My last room had two solid walls of windows overlooking the city. The bars and restaurant are very stylish. I've also bumped into celebrities. Always have fun there.

This is my third time at the Thompson LES and each time has been better and better.

The single best feature of the hotel is the staff who has been super accommodating from reservation to check out and all in between. The management (Sebastian) bent over backwards to help us when we stayed with our kids to make it a great family experience from playing at the pool to arranging a top notch baby sitters. This time they cultivated a totally romantic environment for my wife and I on a couple get away. With only a couple of stays at the Thompson - they have made us feel like family and have gone the extra step always.
The rooms are always clean, nice and big enough so that you are not bumping into the walls like other NYC chic hotels. We have always had a bath and if an upgrade was avail - they were very willing to help us. And they are beautifully designed - of course great beds.
I have to say that as a New Yorker transplanted in LA - the Thompson is located in a totally cool section of the city. Not the Disneyland NYC of the meat packing district or other fully white washed areas. Feels like the village back in the day and there are great shops, cool bars and hip restaurants. It is also very convenient to walk to all areas of the downtown scene.

The hotel is really suited for those savvy travelers who are hip enough to find what's cool and not really for those looking to check out the Empire State building and Statue of Liberty - but could probably help you out just the same.

Overall a great place to stay if you are looking for the coolest NYC experience you can have.
