Hyatt Hotels Corporation is proud to announce the debut of Thompson Hollywood, the luxury lifestyle hotel situated on Wilcox Avenue near Hollywood and Vine.
The new 11-story hotel features 190 mid-century-inspired guestrooms, including 16 suites, a sophisticated Martin Brudnizki designed feature dining concept from acclaimed LA-based chef Lincoln Carson and Bar Lis, a destination rooftop lounge and pool with unparalleled city views.
This much-anticipated project is owned by Relevant Group who appointed Steinberg Hart for architecture and London-based Tara Bernerd & Partners for the interiors, with Ten Five Hospitality overseeing food and beverage.
The overall design is bold and confident, drawing upon the West Coast Modernist movement and a dash of Hollywood glamour as inspirations to seamlessly blend for a contemporary and elegant approach throughout.

With interiors by designer Bernadette Blanc, Bar Lis sits atop Thompson Hollywood, representing the crowning jewel of the experience.
Guests arrive through a trellis-covered walkway leading through double Crittal Doors to the lobby which is clad in a rich, mid-toned timber contrasted by a calming, pale terrazzo floor inlaid with a brass pattern, inspired by the West Coast Modern Movement.
The furniture selection for the space is a mixture of both mid-Century and contemporary pieces, grouped on bespoke Tara Bernerd & Partners designed rugs – the juxtaposition of industrial finishes with rich fabrics and textures being a key theme througout the hotel.
In the lobby lounge and bar L-shaped banquette seats are integrated into the step up on each side of the bar.
The flooring sees split levels with the brass-inlaid terrazzo continuing seamlessly throughout the lobby and a contrasting rich, punchy terrazzo used for the split level.
A palette of rich tobacco with hints of petrol blue lacquer contrast with the pale terrazzo floor and warm wood panelled walls, whilst fresh linens and woven textiles add to the exchange of materiality.
Towards the back of the lobby lounge sits the bar, which is finished in the same contrasting terrazzo of the mezzanine level and topped with a striking retro-green onyx.
At the front, the bar is a full height standing bar with classic high bar stool seating whereas to the sides, the mezzanine offers a lower-level seating option.
Throughout the property and into the guestrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows flood rooms with natural sunlight, offering sweeping vantage points of the Hollywood Hills and the iconic Hollywood sign.
Designed by Bernadette Blanc, Bar Lis sits atop Thompson Hollywood, representing the crowning jewel of the experience.
Chic but without pretension, the new rooftop lounge aims to capture the iconic spirit and playfully sophisticated vibe of the Cote D’Azur.
Here guests can enjoy Sunset Hour with unobstructed views of the Hollywood Hills and the Hollywood sign. Bar Lis’ retractable roof ensures all-weather, all-year-round entertainment while a dedicated entrance with private elevator allows for more exclusive soirees.
The guestrooms are light and fresh, with wide-planked walnut wood floors and cream walls.
Echoing the lobby, potted plants bring a natural element to the room and a terrazzo bench sits in front of an antiqued mirror on one wall, featuring an integral padded leather seat for additional seating.
Special attention has been given to the lighting and artwork in every room with bold mid-century fixtures and eye-catching contemporary artwork.
The Thompson Hollywood suites are spacious corner rooms boasting floor to ceiling windows for an abundance of natural light.
With residential tone in mind, the spaces are enhanced with large, L-shaped sofas finished in mid-green velvet with marble-topped tables sitting just in front for a casual workspace or in-room dining, whilst a mid-century-inspired writing table makes for a more formal workspace and additional seating option.
Guest bathrooms feature walls and vanities finished in rich terrazzo amidst contrasting pale-tiled floors with luxury amenities supplied by D.S. & DURGA.
“Introducing Thompson Hollywood in one of Los Angeles’ most sought-after real estate market is a ground-breaking move for the hospitality brand,” says Grant King, Managing Partner of Relevant Group.
“This property not only perfectly sits at the storied intersection of the technology, media and entertainment realms, but will inevitably heighten Hollywood’s visibility as a coveted hospitality destination.”
