The Fashionably Chic 60 Thompson

Posted: Jan. 13th, 2007  |  By Christy Stewart
Luxury Hotels: Situated in Manhattan's uber-trendy SoHo District, the 60 Thompson is a favorite among Hollywood's red-carpet set. The boutique hotel draws the likes of those who capture hearts on the silver screen, grace the covers of weekly gossip magazines, influence fashion, and have ultimately become a household name.

There is a reason why Hollywood A-listers stay at the 60 Thompson when they head to the Big Apple. Designed by Thomas O'Brien, the 12-story hotel exudes star qualities and is considered by many to be a celebrity in itself. The hotel captures the essence of mid-century metropolitan New York with its muted color palate, contrasting mahogany paneling, lush furnishings, and prime urban location.

With 100 fashionably chic rooms, the hotel provides contemporary stylings, an effortless appeal, and lavish refinements. Guestrooms feature raised European-style beds, custom leather headboards, and abstract artwork by New York photographer, Laura Resen. Each guestroom is furnished with all the comforts one might expect from a hotel of such high-caliber. Each room is fully stocked with plush linens and robes by Frette, pure down bedding, a variety of bathroom apothecary by Fresh, and a pantry filled with a wide array of gourmet treats from New York's Dean & DeLuca. For about $3,500 a night, socialites can opt to stay in the hotel's duplex penthouse. The Thompson Loft features a private roof deck, a marble fireplace, a two-story ceiling, and four-poster king size beds.

All of the hotel amenities share the opulence that radiates from the beautifully appointed hotel suites. With Chef Ian Chalermkittichai in the kitchen, concocting his Thai-inspired menu, the 60 Thompson's restaurant, Kittichai, proves to be one of the city's most popular haunts. One floor up, guests can find a luxurious respite and enjoy a cocktail at the hotel's fashionable Thom Bar. Akin to the hotel's beauty, the 60 Thompson's high quality of standards is apparent in the strikingly beautiful faces of its eager-to-please staff. Outfitted in Nino Cerruti cashmere threads, the staff takes the Art Deco aesthetics to a whole new level, and ultimately achieves cohesiveness unlike any other.

It takes a real hipster to gain access to the hotel's rooftop "members-only" lounge, A60. Hotel guests can enjoy the panoramic view of Manhattan in the summer, but membership is reserved for the VIP, the affluent, and the celebrity circuit. Notable A-lister sightings include Britney Spears, Denzel Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, Russell Crowe, Kirsten Dunst and Jake Gyllenhaal, and many more.
