Thompson Central Park is an ideal choice for your family getaway in New York City. We visited on a weekend leading up to Christmas and had an unforgettable stay surrounded by holiday vibes and festive luxury. We loved the warm ambiance, sparkling Christmas Tree, and quick and efficient check-in process.

The modern elevators whisked us to our suite on the 17th floor which was beautifully designed, incorporating a cozy open space with a separate lounge and dining area, a large decadent bathroom, and a sumptuous king size bed. Staff consistently went out of their way to make us feel special, from welcoming treats for the kids to amazing recommendations on must see sights in the area.

Thompson is optimally located just a few minutes walk from Central Park. There you’ll find a plethora of playgrounds and green spaces for your family as well as ice skating at the iconic Wollman Rink. We were also only minutes from the famous Rockefeller Centre Christmas Tree, Bryant Park’s festive market, and our children’s favourite toy shop, FAO Schwarz. You’ll find yourself surrounded by delicious eateries from the popular Parker's located on the lobby level of the hotel to classic NYC must eat restaurants and food carts on every corner. If you’re craving retail therapy, all the shops and department stores of 5th Avenue are just down the street.

Whether you’re looking for a weekend of shopping, sightseeing or gastronomy, Thompson Central Park is a perfect luxurious home away from home while visiting New York City.

The grand and ambient Parker’s, located at the lobby level of the luxurious Thompson Central Park, is a classic NY spot for handcrafted cocktails and delicious fare. We loved the open and inviting space incorporating a long stylish bar, dim intimate lighting, and a grand piano centrepiece. Service was friendly and efficient ensuring we were served quickly after a long journey.

We loved the menu full of elevated American fare, highlights of which included the perfectly seasoned Steak Tartare with Dijon, Capers and Quail Egg, the insanely juicy Wagyu Sliders with Caramelized Onion Bacon Jam, Comeback Sauce and Truffle Cheese, the perfectly prepared Steak Frites with Compound Butter and Garlic Aioli and the indulgent Roasted Bone Marrow with Horseradish Gremolata and Grilled Country Bread.

Make sure to sample a few of their cocktails, our favourite being the “Come Fly with Me”, for an ideal nightcap after a day exploring New York City.
