Thompson Washington D.C., the lifestyle brand’s first property in the nation’s capital, is now open. Located in the Navy Yard neighborhood, the new hotel, managed and operated by Pivot Hotels & Resorts, features 225 guestrooms and suites, along with restaurant and bar concepts located less than one mile from Capitol Hill and other major D.C. monuments and museums.
The hotel’s 225 guestrooms, including 17 suites, boast floor-to-ceiling windows and breathtaking views of the Anacostia River and Nationals Park. Two expansive Thompson Suites also feature stunning outdoor terraces with views of the Washington Navy Yard. Each guestroom features bathroom vanity tops made of green onyx and Brazilian white avalanche marble, 400-thread-count SFERRA linens, Tivoli radios, 55″ flat screen HD TVs, D.S. & Durga custom bath products, and kimono-style robes. The hotel’s mini bars are stocked with locally sourced items, including guilt-free snacks and candles from Freres Branchiaux Candle Co., where 10 percent of the proceeds benefit Washington, D.C.’s homeless shelters.
“We are proud to introduce the sophisticated and evocative Thompson Washington D.C. to the nation’s capital,” says general manager Sherry Abedi in press materials. “Thompson Hotels is a brand that has always boldly pushed the norms of a traditional hotel experience, and we look forward to super-serving our global visitors, World of Hyatt members, and the Washington, D.C. community with a stylish destination to eat, drink, connect and relax. We have already felt a warm welcome from the neighborhood’s residents and local businesses.”
Wining and Dining
Among Thompson Washington D.C.’s many standout features is its signature restaurant, Maialino Mare. The restaurant, a coastal sister to the original Maialino in New York City, focuses on seafood-forward pastas and other seasonally-inspired dishes sourced from local farmers and fishmongers, complemented by a robust Italian wine list and rustic desserts. The Roman-style trattoria is led by executive chef Rose Noel who was most recently executive sous chef at USHG’s Manhatta restaurant. The adjacent Thompson Bar Room offers a cozy bar and booth seating. Diners are invited to stay late and enjoy a menu of curated cocktails, wines, and beer. Maialino Mare will open with dinner beginning at 5:00 p.m. daily; breakfast and lunch will be introduced in the weeks to follow. The Thompson Bar Room will open at 3:00 p.m. daily.
Anchovy Social, the hotel’s rooftop bar, offers sweeping views of the city. Inspired by the coastal spirit of sister restaurant Maialino Mare downstairs, Anchovy Social will debut with playful seasonal cocktails such as the Juice Box (vodka, cranberry shrub, Vermouth di Torino, rosemary) and Frozen “Hot” Chocolate (mezcal, fernet, cacao, coconut milk, mole bitters), and a robust wine and beer menu, alongside shareable bites such as Anchovy & Stracchino, Clams Casino, and Porchetta Melt Sliders, as well as Seafood Towers and larger plates. Anchovy Social will open in the weeks to come.
The Navy Yard Neighborhood
The newly built 11-story property is designed as a lifestyle hotel, featuring a textured facade and large industrial-inspired windows that embody the historic industrial language of The Yards neighborhood, a 42-acre waterfront development at the center of Capitol Riverfront’s Navy Yard neighborhood. As the first lifestyle hotel in the growing mixed-used development, Thompson Washington D.C. is designed to be a social anchor in The Yards community, joining dozens of specialty retailers, restaurants, high-end residences, and cultural attractions. Situated on D.C.’s scenic riverfront, outdoor parks such as the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail and The Yards Park are all steps from the hotel.
Thompson Washington D.C. is now open with rates starting at $359 per night. To celebrate the hotel’s debut, Thompson Washington D.C. is offering an Explore the Neighborhood opening package, which includes two tickets to U Street dining tour with Carpe D.C. Food Tours, roundtrip tickets to Georgetown or Old Town Alexandria with Potomac Riverboats, welcome drinks for two at Anchovy Social and overnight accommodation with rates starting at $459.
