The hotel features 225 sleek and modern guestrooms and suites, 4,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a restaurant and rooftop bar by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, a separate lobby lounge, fitness, and ground-floor retail.

38 suites, including two presidential “Thompson Suites,” range in size from 425 to 800 square feet with regular rooms ranging in size from 300 to 350 square feet.

The Thompson Hotel is adjacent to STUDIOS' residential project, Estate at The Yards, in southeast Washington, DC, anchoring the north end of the Yards Park. Both projects were 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.

The new Thompson Hotel is a gateway to the redeveloped historic Navy Yard neighborhood in southeast Washington, DC.

The simple vertical massing integrates with the neighboring historic industrial buildings and provides a bold terminus to the N Street corridor leading from Nationals Park. The exterior architecture incorporates simple, durable materials, traditionally-inspired detailing, and rigorous composition in a contemporary nod to the historic industrial site and surrounding buildings.
