Thompson Seattle

Thompson Hotels opened the Thompson Seattle, the brand’s first property to open in the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S. 

The boutique hotel is located adjacent to the Pike Place Market and has a culinary partnership with the Huxley Wallace Collective restaurant group. Thompson Seattle has 158 mid-century modern guestrooms, including eight corner studios and two suites. The hotel also has a signature restaurant, a rooftop bar and lounge with views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountain Range and more than 5,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space.

“Everything about Thompson Seattle is infused with the same pride and craftsmanship that give Seattle its alluring character,” said Niki Leondakis, CEO of Commune Hotels & Resorts. "We were driven to create a hotel that seamlessly combines the sophisticated, residential style that Thompson Hotels is known for with elements inspired by Seattle's aviation heritage and magnificent vistas of the breathtaking surrounding landscape."
