The Thompson Hotel is located at Parcel L, a pivotal site in Brookfield’s Yards development in southeast Washington, DC, anchoring the north end of the Yards Park.  Parcel L includes two projects designed by STUDIOS as a joint mixed-use development: the Estate rental residential building by Brookfield and the Thompson Hotel developed by JW Capital Partners and Geolo Capital.

STUDIOS served as the design architect for the building while working closely with the interior design team at Parts and Labor Design to deliver the brand’s first hotel property in the District. The hotel’s deeply textured façade and large industrial-inspired windows embody the historic industrial language of the neighborhood, The Yards, a 42-acre waterfront development at the center of Capitol Riverfront’s Navy Yard neighborhood.

The hotel features 225 sleek and modern guestrooms and suites, 4,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a restaurant and a rooftop bar by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, a separate lobby lounge, fitness, and ground-floor retail. The Thompson includes 38 suites, including two presidential “Thompson Suites,” ranging in size from 425 to 800 square feet with regular rooms ranging in size from 300 to 350 square feet.
