That’s right. I went there. Why? Because 60 Thompson is a sexy hotel. The kind of hotel that conjures up foreplay to all kinds of fun. How, you wonder?
Well, I can tell you the usual tidbits about 60 Thompson. Like it’s a small luxury hotel with only 100 rooms in the heart of uber swank Soho. Things like complimentary wifi, bath products by Kiehls, in-room pantries with Dean & Deluca treats and i-Pod docking stations are standard. I know, just that alone is enough to make anyone’s heart race a little.
The minimalist yet retro feel of 60 Thompson’s design helps with the seductive nature of the property. Designer Thomas O’Brien certainly knew what he was doing. Welcoming you but not overwhelming you so you can truly appreciate what is playful about 60 Thompson.
The lobby’s over-sized couches invite you to come take a seat for a while and watch the flurry of activity. It definitely feels like a place to see and be seen. The warm tones of the guest rooms make you wish to relax and perhaps even slow down. Not always an easy thing to create in the rush of Manhattan.
Then there’s the chic Thom Bar with it’s spirited touches that will make you want to cozy up with your company or easily branch out and make some new friends. It is definitely a spot for some intimate fun. As a guest you can also enjoy the members-only rooftop lounge, A60, in the warmer months.
60 Thompson’s restaurant, Kittichai, must not be left out of the formula of what’s provocative about the property. A favorite among local New Yorkers and international foodies, the whimsical decor alone makes it worth the trip.
So there you have it. It’s a gorgeous property that lures you in with its sexy sophistication. But you want to know what I find the most attractive about 60 Thompson? The warm reception of the staff and their distinct service. Now that’s something that would get any guest hot & bothered. Go check them out next time you’re in New York and you’ll be hooked too.
