Expert review of Thompson LES

A hip hotel in the bustling Lower East Side.

Part of the Thompson Hotels group, the Thompson LES, like other Thompson hotels, is a hip place to rest your head. Its appeal is its modern conveniences as well as its proximity to trendy restaurants, bars and other nightlife options.

Location: 

In the heart of the Lower East Side, near a plethora of nightlife and dining options. 

Bedrooms: 

The 141 rooms and suites are lofty and modern. Floor-to-ceiling windows showcase downtown and an illuminated headboard hangs over the bed, which is enveloped in 400-thread-count SFERRA Italian linens. Bathrooms have slate showers and frosted glass doors. The two Thompson Suites have king-size beds, living rooms with fireplaces, a kitchenette and a terrace. The Thompson Loft, a popular choice for industry events, is a hit with guests as well. The duplex space has one large bedroom, 24-foot windows and two and a half bathrooms.
