San Francisco-based Geolo Capital and Boston-based JW Capital Partners are set to open a new Thompson Hotels project in Washington, D.C. in early 2020. The 225-room Thompson D.C. will be the first hotel development in The Yards, the city’s earliest industrial neighborhood. Today, the Yards is a mixed-used community on D.C.’s riverfront, within walking distance from Nationals Park.

The Thompson DC will have locally inspired design courtesy of Studios Architecture and New York City-based interior design firm Parts and Labor Design. The look will be influenced by the area’s Navy Yard, incorporating industrial patterns and textures found in historic naval structures. Copper, metal and emerald and ivory tones will be implemented throughout the building’s interiors and guestrooms, with dark iron bricks, metal panels and a dark grey façade defining the exterior.

Thompson D.C. will have 38 suites—including two Thompson Suites—many with views of the Anacostia River and nearby Nationals Park. Food and beverage establishments will include a ground-level restaurant, lobby lounge and a rooftop bar with 360-degree views of the city. Other amenities will include a fitness center and 4,000 square feet of meeting and event space.
