New York Hotel Reviews - News on Celebrities Favorite Hotels

Celebrity Spotting at Celeb 60 Thompson Hotel by Hilary Rowland

60 Thompson, Trendy Hotel, New York City
60 Thompson Review by Hilary Rowland

The trendiest boutique hotel in Manhattan. Flush with modern-chic style and seductive atmosphere. A celebrity following that rivals the Oscars. A bar that is the place to be on a Thursday night. 60 Thompson is quickly becoming a household name, and we know why.

The light earth-tone walls, panelled leather headboards, crisp white Frette linens, and deep walnut paneling create an effortlessly sensual and relaxing atmosphere. Although the expansive hotel lobby can feel a bit intimidating if you don't belong to the Seven/Vuitton crowd, the uber-hip Thom's Bar is actually quite comfortable. The overly attractive staff is lucky enough to sport cashmere uniforms created by Nino Cerruti, although the tips they undoubtedly rake in from this swank celeb crowd no doubt affords them their own cashmere.

Located in the heart of SoHo at, you guessed it, 60 Thompson Street between Spring and Broome (and across from the original Kate Spade store), this 12-storey, 100-room hotel is close to everything that is trendy and fashionable, and has become the favored hangout of discerning New York socialites and celebrities.

If their standard New York-size rooms are too cramped for you, book yourself into the duplex penthouse loft, complete with its own private garden. If the Thompson Loft's $3,500. price tage deters you, try escaping to the trendy A60 (above sixty) members-only rooftop lounge, open in the summer to hotel guests, VIPs, celebrities and the obscenely wealthy. Passer-byers need not apply.

The separate living area, that you'll enjoy if you book a Suite, is chic and comfortable with retro-style furniture and a spacious working desk. The bathrooms are sterile and modern yet somehow still lavish and inviting, with white marble mosaic floors, white porcelain bathroom fixtures and spacious, glass-enclosed shower stalls. The bathrooms also contain a Fresh apothecary including Soy Shampoo, Pomegranate Conditioner and Lychee Lotion (they recently switch from Philosophy toiletries, presumably to further refine their modern chic image).

All this refinement seems to have paid off. Celebrities recently spotted at the hotel include Jennifer Aniston, Russell Crowe, Denzel Washington, Britney Spears, Vanessa Carlton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kirsten Dunst and Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark McGrath, Edward and Brian Burns, and the celeb list goes on (and on).
