Thompson Washington D.C.

Our Hotel

A collection of weathered wood, glass, and dark grey brick rising from the historic Navy Yard, Thompson Washington D.C. stands at the intersection of nautical history and industrial sophistication. Bike along the Anacostia River Trail, make time to stop at a nearby Smithsonian museum – or two, and shop along one of D.C.’s hottest neighborhoods.

Look closely at the elevated interiors of any of the 225 rooms of Thompson Washington D.C. and echoes of the colonial past, from soft, curving tables evoking a ship’s cabin to the rigid symmetrical lines framing the windows overlooking the river or ballpark, become evident. Splashes of rich emerald and ivory tones converge to impart a stylish and calming retreat after a long day in the capital.
