Thompson Beverly Hills and Six Columbus Revisited
This is a shot taken from the Crescent Drive and Wilshire Boulevard intersection of the Thompson Beverly Hills hotel which is set to open in July (so they say.) We snapped this pic the other night while cruising through Beverly Hills and yes, we know--we won't be winning any photography awards anytime soon.
We've also been by the hotel this week in the daytime and the entire place is still swathed in scaffolding except randomly, a garage in there.
Still July does not look feasible to us and a hotel industry insider said Thompson Beverly Hills won't open until September.
Meanwhile, the NYT took a look yesterday at what's been going on with Six Columbus. But even the Grey Lady can't get an answer from the Thompson Hotel peeps. For now, the "Summer" opening still stands. Rooms will start at $395 and the staffers will be staffed in rag & bone designer apparel.
Also, Jason Pomeranc's brother Larry makes an appearance, calling the place "funky but rich." Oh boy.
