I stayed here back in August 2010 with a bunch of friends. I booked my own room. Very stylish and cool interiors, I absolutely loved the design of the rooms. Dark brown glossy wood grain finishes, a photographic framed light box above the bed head by an artist whose name I cannot remember, cool metal ball bearing room divider screen. Bronze/silver curtains.
I was initially given a room on the floor above the bar/club, it was very difficult to sleep with the music thumping and especially after spending days sight-seeing, trying to get some rest was not possible. I called and explained to reception who said the music would stop by 9pm. I endured the thumping till about 9.10pm then called reception annoyed. I think I called about 3 times until finally they gave me a room higher up. It was a much bigger room, really stylish, comfortable bed, I had a couch area where my friends and I would hang out for a drink before we headed out for the night.
Located in the Lower East Side, I thought it was a good location, but then anywhere in Manhattan is a good location. The pool area in the hotel was a nice oasis from the hustle and bustle when you needed a break, especially in summer when it can get really hot and humid.
Despite the slight inconvenience I have raved about The Thompson LES to friends in Australia. Particularly the interior design. Would I stay here again? I'd say yes. My photos of my room doesn't do it any justice so I've left them out.
