Involved in the property development were Seattle-based Olson Kundig, which developed the 12-story hotel’s architectural design to complement its downtown location, and Toronto-based Studio Munge and Redmond, Washington-based Jensen Fey which harmonized the surface finishes using exposed steel and concrete with vintage reclaimed wood furniture and fixtures.
Thompson Seattle has two adjoining solid façades joined by a glass lantern structure that merges the inside and the outside. Inside, there are minimalist design elements, including locally sourced artwork, shelving and lighting, paired with mohair textiles and leather.
The property’s 158 midcentury modern-style guestrooms — including eight corner studios and two suites — have views of the Puget Sound and surrounding Olympic Mountains. The rooms have rain showers in the marble-clad bathrooms.
The hotel also has more than 5,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space.
For dining, the property has the Huxley Wallace Collective-operated Scout restaurant and Nest rooftop bar and lounge, complete with firepits and accommodating up to 250 guests.
