Thompson Lower East Side Sets a Date

At long last, the shiny black monolith rising high over the Lower East Side is ready to open its doors. Well, almost. After several years, the Thompson Lower East Side is finally accepting reservations starting July 15. A standard room will run you $399 a night while the King Studio Suite will only cost you $40 more. So what do you get for all that cheddar?

Our studio suites have been designed with an industrial loft-like feel and feature a King bed with 400 thread count custom SFERRA linens and a spacious living room. Light box headboards feature Lee Friedlander photography. Bathrooms feature oversized terry robes and amenities by Fresh. Entertainment options include flat screen TVs with movies on demand and i-Pod docking stations. Each room also offers complimentary WiFi and minibars stocked with Dean and Deluca and Elia Zabar gourmet snacks.
How LES! How New York! How Thompson. So set your calendars for mid July and hope that there are no final delays that push it back to August.
