Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the continued growth of the Thompson Hotels brand throughout the Southern United States with deals for two new properties—Thompson Savannah and Thompson Buckhead—expected to open in Georgia in 2021. Marking the brand’s entry into the state, these projects will join four other Thompson hotels already under development including Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin, Texas. These six new properties are expected to join Thompson’s nine hotels across the United States and Mexico.
Thompson Savannah, scheduled to open in summer 2021, will bring together the city’s past and present with design that combines historic architectural details and contemporary flair. Developed by Atlanta-based Regent Partners as part of the mixed-use Eastern Wharf project—adjacent to the city’s historic center and on the banks of the Savannah River—the 193-room property is being designed by Dallas-based firm Studio 11 and will include 21 suites with wraparound balconies. From the parquet tile flooring of the lobby to the use of rich jewel tones and botanical patterns throughout both the common areas and guestrooms, the hotel’s design will be inspired by the endemic flora of a city famous for its many green spaces, while staying true to the midcentury modern aesthetic that has become a signature of the Thompson Hotels brand.
Thompson Buckhead (shown) is also being developed by Regent Partners and is scheduled to open in late 2021. Designed by Studio 11, the property will have the atmosphere of a luxurious private home. With an intimate jewel-box bar, works by local artists on display, and greenery throughout, the lobby will feel like a stylish and contemporary Southern great room. Chevron-patterned wood floors with area rugs, marble mosaic-tiled bathrooms and large walk-in showers are among the elements that will embody the sleek style of the 201 guestrooms.
