Thompson Hotels has officially opened its first property in the US southeast, Thompson Miami Beach. The 380-room beachfront property will serve as the flagship for the brand.
“The opening of Thompson Miami Beach signals a major milestone in the growth and development of the Thompson brand,” said Niki Leondakis, CEO, Commune Hotels & Resorts, the international hotel company that manages Thompson Hotels. “It is the first project to bear the brand name in the Southeast U.S. and truly showcases what our collection is about: a hotel experience that encapsulates the lifestyle and personality of the local community. Our teams have worked tirelessly to execute a vision we are confidence will add a new, refreshing element to this flourishing market.
The hotel has an estimated 47,000 square feet of multi-functional areas of meetings and special events. Spaces include the Vista Lounge, a boldly-colour outdoor space offering ocean views, and the Tarelton Room, a 1,360-square-foot room with built-in A/V, soundproof windows and natural light.
The Thompson Miami Beach’s amenities and design features include:
- Guestrooms and suites (30) decorated in a blend of beach appointments and mid-century international resort style (sitting areas, 1050s-inspired beds, retro bathrooms with nautical accents, etc.)
- Indoor/outdoor spa and fitness center on the 10th floor with six open-air treatment cabanas; daily fitness classes; and a salon (Thompson Miami Beach’s Junior & Hatter outpost)
