T he rumors are true: The long-awaited, über-chic Thompson Houston opens its doors Thursday, December 21, and is now accepting reservations. The gorgeous, futuristic glass-and- steel façade with curved lines, designed by award-winning local architecture firm HOK, soars above Buffalo Bayou Park on Allen Parkway, close to downtown. Houston-based Abel Design Group crafted the interiors, which were inspired by the nearby park with warm earthy colors, organic materials, brass fixtures, marble bathrooms, and hardwood floors. The Thompson group is known for incorporating elements from the city into the design — Thompson Houston's stunning lobby was designed in a mid-century style, and guest rooms were created with a Texas oil baron's home in mind. An entire floor is devoted to wellness, including a full-service spa with six sizable treatment rooms, hair and nail salon, indoor/ outdoor sanctuary, state-of-the- art fitness facility, and sauna. Of course, leisure opportunities abound, from the massive infinity pool with cabanas on a one-acre outdoor rooftop living room to rooftop restaurant Sol 7 and coffee cocktails at Maven Coffee Company. Make your reservation today. Thompson Houston, 1717 Allen Parkway, thompson-hotels/iahth.
