In January 2020 Thompson Hotels will open its latest property, Thompson Washington D.C. Located in the “The Yards” neighborhood, Thompson Washington D.C. will be the first lifestyle hotel to open its doors in the developing area. Close to the Capitol Riverfront and the Anacostia River and Nationals Park, the new property offers impeccable views paired with specialty shops and various local restaurants to suit the needs of many.

Made up of 225 rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and an interior design that subtly mimics a ships cabin connects the new property to the areas local past history as a Navy Yard. “In addition to the 225 rooms and suites, the hotel offers three dining outlets, on-site fitness center, concierge, in-room personal bar with mini-fridge and in-room coffeemakers, among other services and amenities. We also want our guests to connect with the neighborhood, so we have partnered with local companies to offer various experiences. For example, our guests have complimentary access to D.C.’s bike share program so they can explore the neighborhood. In addition, each guestroom will feature a piece of original artwork in the form of an illustrated postcard of the Navy Yard from local artist Carlos Carmonamedina, so guests can “write home” about their D.C. experience,” says Kelly McCourt, director of sales & marketing at Thompson Washington D.C.

Thompson Washington D.C. is the perfect location for hosting meetings and events. With over 7,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space including All’s Well and Eight Bells rooms, ideal for formal meetings, the Prefunction Room for a more self-contained space, The Nook, a flexible, multi-functional room with a capacity for up to 16 individuals, the Private Dining Room/Wine Room housed in one of the hotel’s restaurants, Maialino Mare and Anchovy Social equipped with a wrap-around terrace suitable for larger events upwards of 300 people. In addition to overseeing food and beverage in the hotel, Danny Meyer’s Union Hospitality Square Group provides catering options for all meetings and event spaces as well.

“From our location in the Navy Yard to the hotel’s nod to the local history and culture and our spectacular food and beverage experience, we are truly here to provide a space that’s crafted to be yours. The hotel is surrounded by 50 bars and restaurants, two blocks from Nationals Park with the recent World Series win and four blocks from Audi field where D.C. United play. This waterfront hotel is perfectly positioned for groups and event attendees to enjoy all D.C. has to offer. The hotel is only 15 minutes from the airport and only a five minute drive to the U.S. Capitol,” says McCourt.

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
