Hyatt Hotels Corporation has revealed that its boutique lifestyle hospitality brand Thompson Hotels will open six new properties across Georgia and Texas.

Chicago-headquartered hospitality company Hyatt, which is already progressing four major projects in Texas, has agreed deals for two new Thompson Hotels properties in Georgia. We find out more about its exciting growth plans.

Thompson’s debut in Georgia

Thompson Savannah and Thompson Buckhead are the two most recent additions to Hyatt’s project pipeline, and they also represent the high-profile brand’s debut in Georgia. Both are being developed by Regent Partners and designed by Studio 11.

Known for its elegant yet daring design and creative dining concepts, Thompson’s new properties will shine the spotlight on the captivating aspects of their respective neighbourhoods, while thoughtfully making these details an integral part of the guest experience.

Thompson Savannah’s design will combine historic architectural details with contemporary elements to bring the city’s colourful past and present to life. Scheduled to launch in mid-2021, the 193-room property will be part of the mixed-use Eastern Wharf project

It will feature a lobby bar and lounge, an all-day-dining restaurant and a terrace overlooking the skyline. From the lobby, guests will be able to take the grand staircase to reach the pool deck and relax on cosy daybeds.

Thompson Buckhead, meanwhile, will be located in one of Atlanta’s most stylish neighbourhoods, Buckhead Village. Due to open in late 2021, it’s designed to feel like a luxurious private home complete with an intimate bar, works by local artists and greenery at every turn.

The 201 generous rooms will feature elegant hardwood floors, marble mosaic-tiled bathrooms and luxurious walk-in showers. Guests can also avail themselves of the signature all-day-dining restaurant and rooftop pool and bar with sweeping views over the city.

Dynamic expansion in the American South

The two new hotel schemes in Georgia join four other properties currently under development in Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio – all in Texas. These projects will add to the brand’s existing inventory across the US and Mexico.

“We are excited to announce the future openings of six new Thompson hotels in Georgia and Texas, which, together with Thompson Nashville, will bolster the brand’s presence in the Southern US,” said Crystal Vinisse Thomas, Hyatt’s director of global lifestyle brands.

“In this new and uncharted era of travel, we recognise the importance of unique, lifestyle-driven hotels that inspire travellers seeking refined and evocative experiences. We look forward to inviting our guests to rediscover southern hospitality through the tailored lens of the Thompson Hotels brand – celebrating the rich culinary, music and artistic foundations of the South through exceptional service, crafted design and an elevated social scene.”


Earning a voice in some of the most exciting local scenes is Thompson’s passion and purpose, with a design-forward collection of boutique lifestyle hotels and resorts for those who do not think small.
