Does The Hollywood Roosevelt Want to Escape The Commune?
When Thompson Hotels' Jason Pomeranc and his partners left the Commune Hotels collection the other month, they walked away with Thompson's prized NYC properties but had to leave a few choice hotels behind as well as the beloved Thompson name.
Now, as Pomeranc and co. toil away on their new boutique hotel brand, we're getting word from some super secret hotel insiders that the Hollywood Roosevelt wants out of the Commune. We're not exactly sure of the reason but there is speculation that the hotel's owners liked the Pomeranc association. But again, this is purely speculation.
Indeed, a spokesperson for Thompson and Commune told us that the Hollywood Roosevelt "will remain a Thompson-branded property under Commune's management."

But while we're on the topic of Pomeranc's new hotel brand, we've heard that the Civilian Hotels name, which was trademarked at the end of the summer by Pomeranc, may not pan out. We also found a trademark for Sixty House Hotels (again, trademarked by Pomeranc's company) which sounds waaaaay better. Although, that's an interesting name too, considering Pomeranc's involvement with Soho House. (He helped found the Soho House in L.A.) Could this be the start of some new uber-hotel partnership?
Someone better start talking soon, see how our minds are racing already?
