We were expecting to hear that the hotel would find us a room at Thompson LES but instead we were sent off to 60 Thompson in SoHo, a hotel we were shuffled off to last year when Thompson LES was not yet open (that's our room pictured above.) Except this time, Thompson agreed to pick up the room and tax for the night as well as give us $15 in cab fare.
At 60 Thompson we were given a hint-of-smoking room with a queen bed on the third floor and had to endure music from the ThomBar until 2am. But this didn't matter so much as we were still on West Coast Time. And we actually even felt guilty that we were put up at 60 Thompson so we ordered a movie, room service and didn't even gripe once about paying the $10 for the internet.
Of course, we're still very curious about seeing the inside of Gild Hall for ourselves but if you have to get walked, you can't find a better place to do it than at a Thompson Hotel.
