I recently traveled to NYC and decided to stay in this sexy little hotel in the LES. I'm a frequent traveler to NYC and I like to try new hotels, areas and expand my experience throughout the city. The Thompson LES was an incredible find. The staff is friendly, the lobby is pretty and the overall feeling of the hotel made it welcoming. Upon arrival the door guy was quick to help and since we had takent the first flight in and our rooms weren't ready, he graciously offered to check our bags. Once checked in, the rooms were small (just as all rooms in NYC are) but they are designed in a way were you don't feel crammed. The bed is low and comfy, the walls are sleek and the shower...well, the shower is amazing. One of our rooms was located just Above Allen (the bar on the 7th floor) and at first I was worred about the sounds from the DJ at night. The music and the crowd wasn't a bother at all. Like any hotel in NYC you get street noise but nothing that kept us up at night. The other room was located a few floors up on the 11th floor. We were surprised that the room smelled of smoke. When we informed the front desk, they kindly moved the couple staying in that room. We started the night at Above Allen most of the time with a crafty cocktail at the bar. The view is breathtaking and the bartenders are nice. If you have a chance to stay at The Thompson LES, please do so - you won't be dissappointed! Until next time...cheers!

- At the epicenter of downtown Manhattan's vibrant New Renaissance in cuisine, galleries, live music clubs, and nightlife spots, the fun-defining SIXTY LES evokes the youthful spirit of its all-hours neighborhood-an indie-vibed district on display from nearly every Jim Walrod-curated suite's floor-to-ceiling windows. Andy Warhol's visage looks up from the scene-and-be-seen swimming pool's bottom, while gritty images by iconic photographer Lee Friedlander illuminate bedroom headboards. Step out into the street life and walk directly into the world-recognized New Museum or countless gastronaut destination spots. But guests need go no further than the vibrant award-winning Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya tavern and bar for Japanese cuisine and stellar cocktails, courtesy of foodie deities the Bromberg brothers.
