The Thompson is lovely, convenient for walking, and offers very good food options on site at Wax Myrtle and Grey Market. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The decor is very modern and very nice. Our issue was with bathroom lighting (absolutely not made to apply any type of make-up. A small or non-issue for many, but for those of us who apply just mascara - it's a struggle!) and the noise level of the a/c. It was really loud. It did do a great job of cooling our room, which was much appreciated in low 90's temps, but a bit more insulation in the panel to the unit would make a world of difference. If you are looking to stay in a central location, at this price point, with access to many, many food and drink options it's great! (And as it's failrly new to the area these are issues that may be in the works for correcting.)

8/10 Very Good

Brand new property, nice 4 star spot, good location for walking downtown and going out. Soundproofing was the biggest issue - you can hear neighbors very well, hallway very well, and sadly the bathroom has no door or fan so you get to hear that too. Overall a nice place to stay. It's a downtown busy area so you'll get the energy but also the traffic noise, sirens and yelling drunks (i.e. tourists) on the street. Love the bar/breakfast nook area decor. No restaurants open yet when we stayed but will be nice when they are fully open.
