After opening Thompson San Antonio in April, and Thompson Savannah in August, luxury lifestyle brand Thompson Hotels announced its first property in Colorado, Thompson Denver, expected to debut January 2022 in the Lower Downtown (LoDo) district.
Guests can expect the brand’s signature mid-century modern and urban style combined with “upscale mountain chalet chic” when booking Thompson Denver. The new-build hotel is owned by hospitality real estate firm T2 Hospitality, and it will feature a celebrity-chef restaurant, sunroom bar and plenty of amenities.
Here are 4 reasons to book Thompson Denver
Thompson Denver will have a prime location.
The property’s prime location in the hip LoDo neighborhood is near famed area attractions like the 16th Street Promenade, Union Station, Larimer Square, Coors Field, Ball Arena, and popular eateries, craft breweries, theaters, and museums—all a short drive from Denver International Airport.
Guests will be able to conveniently walk or bike to plenty of hot spots.
2. The hotel’s design is refreshing and modern.
Thompson Denver’s design will be inspired by the Mile High community and culture with sense of place and connection to Colorado in mind, courtesy of Parts + Labor. Expect the mid-century modern foundation blended with natural materials like wood, stone, and copper, as well as classic mountain town elements.
An architecturally striking, two-story hearth fireplace will extend from the lobby down to residential-style entertainment spaces on the lower level. Artwork from exclusively local Colorado artists will adorn the walls.
The hotel’s guestrooms and suites, including its 1,032-square-foot Thompson Suite, which have a “cabin-inspired warmth.”
All guestrooms will include plush Sferra bedding and D.S. & Durga bath amenities, as well as a curated honor bar and mini fridge with local artisan products and favorites from Thompson Hotels properties across the U.S. and Mexico.
3. Signature restaurant Chez Maggy helmed by Ludo Lefebvre
Thompson Denver is taking dining — and room service — to great heights.
Chez Maggy will be helmed by famed French chef Ludo Lefebvre. It’s his first concept outside of Los Angeles—and within a hotel.
Overseeing both in-room dining and the 90-seat brasserie (open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner), Lefebvre will blend his signature French style with hyperlocal inspiration from the region’s unique mountain climate, all as an homage to his family (chef Ludo’s wife Krissy was raised in Colorado, and the family has built its traditions around spending time in Denver over the past two decades.).
Chez Maggy will feature classic French fare and playful tributes to Denver. Dishes will range from classics such as French Onion Soup, Steak Tartare, Duck L’Orange, and Escargot, to locally inspired, soon-to-be favorites like Bison Bourguignon, a Frenchified “Denver Omelette” and his Burger à la Française.
Chez Maggy is named in honor of chef Ludo’s late mother-in-law, who lived in nearby Littleton, CO.
4. The sunroom bar will be the perfect spot for a night cap
Thompson Denver will offer a sixth-floor sunroom bar and lounge with a seasonally driven cocktail program, curated wine list, local beer selection, and alpine-inspired bites.
Additionally, the pet-friendly hotel will have a 24-hour fitness center with modern equipment and a lobby level cafe and retail space.
