The Thompson Austin has just opened its sister luxury property on the River Walk in San Antonio and is checking into downtown. The Thompson is a luxury offshoot of the hotel giant Hyatt and a posh 212-room hotel. It has several restaurants, an open-air pool deck, and more than 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space.
Hyatt has no concerns that Thompson Austin “is ready to become the capital’s premier urban playground” once it opens on the corner of Fifth and Brazos Streets this summer. Thompson Austin is part of a 32-story mixed-use development and comprises 17 residences and an entertainment deck on the fourth floor with a unique restaurant and bar, a poolside dining area, and a billiards and games room. Also included is a 10,000 square foot wellness center with a yoga studio and private fitness rooms.
The hotel’s ground floor is home to the diner bar and all-day, roadside restaurant, The Gray Market, which has takeaway options and is run by James Beard Award winner Mashama Bailey of The Gray in Savannah, Georgia restaurateur Johno Morisano.
“Thompson Austin is poised to become the city’s newest cultural hub, with exceptional service, an upscale social scene and highly desirable dining and drinking options for visitors and locals,” said Nate Hardesty, general manager of Thompson Austin. “From our collaboration with the team behind Savannah’s acclaimed The Gray to our fourth floor playground with food and drink, wellness and more, we create a vibrant meeting place with the intent to serve both the local community and global travelers. Austin is such a fun, funky, unique city and one of the most popular travel destinations that so many great people and businesses live. We’re thrilled to open the doors to Thompson Austin this summer. “
The new hotel, expected to be priced at $ 329 nightly, will join Hyatt’s growing list of Thompson hotels, including Thompson San Antonio, which opened in February and already receiving awards, and the newly opened Thompson Dallas and the soon-to-be-opened hotel.
