Meet Tommie: The New Hotel Brand from Commune and Thompson Hotels

May 29, 2013 at 12:19 AM | by | Comments (0)

Commune Hotels & Resorts have finally unveiled the name of the long-awaited, “value-conscious” spin-off brand to Thompson Hotels. That would be TOMMIE. As you can probably tell from its name, Tommie is going after the hottest demographic right now, The Millennials (aka younger folk.)

The brand is described as being “borne from the savvy of Thompson Hotels and the playful approachability of Joie de Vivre, defining utilitarian chic." In case you forgot, Thompson merged with Joie de Vivre to form Commune. This is the first brand from the merged companies. Here’s what proud father, Jason Pomeranc, had to say about the new addition to his Thompson family:

“Tommie is about stripping away the non-essentials to create a functional efficiency. Everything is beautiful, but also has a purpose,” said Jason Pomeranc, co-chair of Commune Hotels & Resorts and founder of Thompson Hotels. “We are creating hotels that will appeal to youthful, design savvy, connected, and discerning travelers seeking responsible and immersive experiences. Tommie will be a choice, not of economy but of desire.”

So what's there to "desire" about Tommie? Hint: It begins with Wi and ends with Fi! Keep reading to find out!
