60 Thompson Review

This hotel may no longer be the center of the universe scene-wise, but that's a blessing for guests, since the service (and the staffs' attitudes) have improved. This was the first of the Thompson hotels in New York and it might still be the gold standard. The rooftop lounge, A60, remains a guests- and members-only warm-weather haven for hipsters. Thom bar, the second-floor lobby, is a dark space filled with contemporary art, great for whiling away an evening. Rooms have a dramatic, spare design; the generous use of dark woods and full-wall leather headboards give the rooms welcoming warmth.

    Terrible service for large group stay

    I had a group of 10 stay at the hotel for several weeks, so spent tens of thousands of dollars and was treated horribly - upgrades were promised, but not delivered. it was fall but quite warm, but heat was set and couldn't be controlled so was sweltering. the rooms were so small i had to stack 2 suitcases on top of one another....that was an 'upgraded room', next to the elevator. terrible.

    Terrible

    I have stayed in at least 50 hotels in New York, and this was easily the worst. Great location, but small room in need of an update. Worst, no ability to control the temperature, which hovered well above 80 degrees. Useless staff ("my apartment in New York is hot too"). You would be a fool to stay in this dump.

    A total rip-off

    The facts just the facts:

    One (1) chair; no table of any kind; no bath tub; $650 per night.

    Need I say more?

    vile

    A miserable squalid experience. Unbelievably nasty. It gets my vote as being the nastiest hotel in america. Not one redeeming or original feature. If it were a $50 motel it would still receive the thumbs down. But for those eye watering prices it's a royal rip off. Noisy. Dirty. Boxy rooms. Terrible service. Designer death. A complete cliche. The whole experience made me want to vomit.
