Opening Second Hotel in Los Angeles - the 110-room
Thompson Hotel Beverly Hills
|NEW YORK, New York (August 24, 2005) – Having taken over the operations
of the legendary Hollywood Roosevelt in December, Thompson Hotel Group
has recently announced further expansion of its portfolio of chic boutique
properties to include a second hotel in Los Angeles and two new properties
in New York.
Thompson Hotel Beverly Hills will open in March, bringing the hip relaxed-yet-stylish vibe of the Group’s flagship, 60 Thompson, to the West Coast. With an idyllic location steps away from Rodeo Drive’s infamous shopping strip and around the corner from Spago, the 110-room Thompson Hotel Beverly Hills will feature interiors by Dodd Mitchell, renowned for his design of the Roosevelt and numerous trendy Los Angeles restaurants (such as Dolce and Katana). The hotel will also feature a sleek restaurant and lounge, as well as a rooftop pool with unmatched views of both Beverly and Hollywood Hills.
“Thompson Hotel Beverly Hills is an ideal addition to the portfolio,” says Thompson Hotel Group’s Chief Operating Officer Stephen Brandman. “We see this hotel as the West Coast counterpart to New York’s 60 Thompson. It will offer a sleek discreet option in Los Angeles, a perfect complement to the classic hip character of the Roosevelt.” Thompson Hotel Beverly Hills will be managed by Thompson Hotels and owned by the Pomeranc Group, a family-owned real estate development firm now entering its 46th year of operation.
Meanwhile, New York developments include 6 Columbus, opening in November and Thompson Hotel Lower East Side opening on Allen Street in Spring 2006.
6 Columbus is a sleek 90-room haven that will bring “downtown chic to uptown Manhattan” – ideal for business travelers who prefer a hip haven to slip in and out of between meetings as an alternative to midtown’s classic business hotels. Designed by Steven Sclaroff, who worked with Thomas O’Brien to develop the “warm modernism” of 60 Thompson, the hotel is conveniently located across the street from the Time Warner Center and will feature a lounge, outdoor dining space, rooftop terrace and old-fashioned barbershop. It will also be home to a celebrated New York restaurant group’s next promisingly hot opening.
Thompson Lower East Side is the company’s first hotel condominium project and will not only offer luxurious hotel accommodations, but will also have condominiums for sale that will be fully serviced by the hotel. Facilities will include a state-of-the-art spa, a theatre, destination restaurant, lounges and a rooftop terrace.
The Roosevelt, having just celebrated its 75th anniversary with more than $20 million in renovations, opened its Dakota Restaurant in late May (with Tim Goodell), and the Tropicana Bar (also opened in May, with Amanda Demme) has become one of Hollywood’s hot spots with celebrity regulars including Kirsten Dunst, Lindsay Lohan, Reese Witherspoon and Adam Sandler. Similarly, the Library Bar opened in July and has also hosted a number of A-list celebrities including Matt Dillon and Ben Stiller. The hotel will also soon feature a nightclub, Teddies, opening in September.
Thompson Hotels includes 60 Thompson in New York City, Sagamore in Miami and the famed Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Thompson Hotels is a partnership consisting of Larry, Michael, Jason Pomeranc and Stephen Brandman. Thompson Hotels works closely with its equity arm, the Pomeranc Group, a family-owned real estate development firm now entering its 46th year of operation. Thompson Hotels offer a quiet luxury to their chic, urban bohemian clientele. Their newest developments continue to expand their portfolio of elite hotels in gateway cities throughout the US. Each hotel is filled with modern designs and thoughtful amenities offering guests a unique and luxurious experience. In addition, Thompson is currently exploring projects in Las Vegas, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston, and London.
