The glass-walled rooftop lounge of this 102-room hotel is hugely popular for post-closing-time schmoozing. Only guests and “VIP cardholders” get in, so the word is people are booking rooms for the night just to secure that all-important seat at the bar. Facilities include a yoga and wellness spa and the Thompson Diner. The hotel’s gray, white and orange color scheme is anything but boring.
