Thompson Hotel: Architecture and Design

A unique fusion of styles that connects the past with the present

Something new is coming to downtown Hollywood. A luxurious hotel that strikes a balance between art deco architecture and mid-century modern design. Thompson Hotel effortlessly fuses the two styles together for a stunning and timeless look. 

Retaining the integrity and unique history of the neighborhood, Thompson Hotel naturally vibes with other buildings in the area. The 11-story mid-rise hotel is encased in glass, with geometric balconies that emanate a distinct art deco energy. 

Early renderings of the hotel lobby, released by Tara Bernerd & Partners, feature dark wood paneling, gold fixtures, and globe lights. The room is geometric in the mid-century modern sense, with boxy furniture and clean lines. It subtly mirrors the exterior’s sharp angles, seamlessly blending the two styles together. 

The common spaces are serene with navy blue and hunter green accents that offset the dark wood finishes. However, take one step into a private guest room and the mood shifts. The sleeping areas are decorated in neutral tones, fully embracing a modern take on hospitality. 

Thompson Hotel promises to deliver “distinct experiences” and upscale amenities. Guests will enjoy a rooftop bar with panoramic views of the city, delicious aperitifs in the penthouse lounge, and a world-class restaurant with delectable offerings. The hotel also plans to create culinary adventures and sophisticated outings for guests so they can relish in the full glitz and glam of historic Hollywood. 

Set to open in early 2020, Thompson Hotel is located at 1523 N. Wilcox Avenue, just north of Sunset Boulevard and close to the corner of Hollywood and Vine. The project is designed by Steinberg Hart – in association with RVCA – and is developed by Relevant Group.
