Like the small skating rink in its courtyard, the Thompson is a mix of angles and icy lines, built for fun. Not so much as a speck of color- disturbs the chi of white walls, polished-wood closets, and heated marble bathroom floors (a welcome source of warmth in such a cool space) in the 102 rooms. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook downtown's skyscrapers and the espresso bar-sprouting West End. Though cheerful staff effortlessly attend to guests, the Thompson is first and foremost a nightlife playground. Moguls occupy the dimly lit banquettes at Scarpetta, where the formal service—an army of waiters, captains, and sommeliers—doesn't detract from chef Scott Conant's pleasurably simple Italian cooking. There's also Wabora, a maki and mayo spot, and The Counter, a 24-hour Art Deco-style diner. The lobby bar and basement nightclub, 1812, draw crowds on weekends, but hotel guests and condo owners, select locals, and occasional celebs escape to the rooftop lounge for its infinity pool.
Which room to book: Northwest-facing rooms on upper floors have great city views—Nos. 713, 813, and 913 are high enough to be unobstructed by other buildings.
