Thompson Washington D.C., the lifestyle brand’s first property in the city, is now open. The newbuild hotel features 225 guestrooms and suites, along with restaurant and bar concepts by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group. The hotel is located in The Yards, a 42-acre waterfront mixed-use development at the center of Capitol Riverfront’s Navy Yard neighborhood.
The 11-story property was designed with architecture by New York-based Studios Architecture and interiors by Parts and Labor Design. The hotel’s deeply textured façade and large industrial-inspired windows embody the historic industrial language of the neighborhood.
The hotel’s interiors were inspired by the Thompson brand’s signature midcentury modern aesthetic and the area’s Navy Yard, incorporating industrial patterns and textures found in the neighborhood’s historic naval structures. The hotel’s guestrooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows and views of the Anacostia River and Nationals Park. Each guestroom features custom headboards upholstered in a mélange wool boucle from Holland complemented by sherry and plum-colored leather framed in a dark oak.
