Thompson Hotels opens first international hotel in May 2010

Thompson Hotels announced its first international property, Thompson Toronto, will open in May 2010. The 16-floor Thompson Toronto will feature 102 guestrooms complete with hardwood floors, workstations, floor-to-ceiling windows and marble bathrooms with heated floors.

The Thompson Toronto’s 16th floor will be private Penthouse Suite and feature a panoramic view of the city. A rooftop pool will be open seasonally, complete with cabanas, and a year-round indoor lounge will allow guests to cozy up to the hotel’s fireplace with a cocktail.

Thompson Hotels currently has nine locations in the United States including the 60 Thompson in New York and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles. The Toronto hotel will be the group’s first international destination and will connect to a 336-unit condominium project.

“The success of the Thompson Hotel brand in the United States proves we have a concept that appeals to a chic, urban clientele,” says Jason Pomeranc, co-owner of Thompson Hotels. “Toronto shares many of the same attributes as our most successful markets and the development Tony and Peter brought to us fit Thompson perfectly. The decision to come on board was simple.”
