(CHICAGO, IL; July 24, 2023) — Oxford Capital Group, LLC announces a new long-term lease of the 225-room, luxury lifestyle hotel Thompson Washington D.C. (221 Tingey Street SE), located in the city’s historic Navy Yard with the owner of the property, Germany’s Union Investment. Oxford Capital Group’s wholly owned affiliate, Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC has taken over management of the hotel. Thompson Washington D.C joins Oxford’s rapidly growing national luxury lifestyle-hotel portfolio, which includes Thompson Chicago, Godfrey Hotels in Chicago, Boston, Tampa, Hollywood and Detroit; LondonHouse Hotel Chicago; Le Méridien Essex Chicago; The Versey; The Julian; The Porter Hotel Portland; and many others.

Thompson Washington D.C. opened its doors in 2020. Located in the city’s waterfront Navy Yard neighborhood, the hotel pays homage to the area’s nautical history while maintaining the brand’s modern, industrial, sophisticated design philosophy.

“The Thompson Washington D.C. has an excellent location, is thoughtfully programmed, and has distinctive architecture and interior design. It is an exciting addition to our portfolio of luxury lifestyle hotels,” says John W. Rutledge, Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of Oxford Hotels & Resorts, LLC and its parent company, Chicago-based Oxford Capital Group, LLC. “We believe our extensive experience in the luxury lifestyle sector will allow us to optimize this dynamic property’s operational and financial performance.”

The 11-story property, designed by New York-based Studios Architecture and award-winning interior design firm Parts and Labor Design, is situated on D.C.’s scenic riverfront. The hotel was created to be the social anchor of The Yards, a 42-acre, mixed-use development that also includes dozens of specialty retailers, restaurants, and high-end residences. Outdoor parks including the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail and The Yards Park are all mere steps from the hotel, inviting visitors to walk around and explore. The hotel’s 225 guestrooms, including 17 suites, boast floor-to-ceiling windows and breathtaking views of the Anacostia River and Nationals Park. Two expansive Thompson Suites feature outdoor terraces with views of the Washington Navy Yard.

Among Thompson Washington D.C.’s many standout features is its signature restaurant, Surveyor, an American-inspired supper house that draws inspiration from traditional American dishes and classic spirit- forward cocktails. The hotel’s rooftop bar, The Rooftop At The Thompson, boasts sweeping, 360-degree views of the city, along with playful cocktails and shareable bites. Additionally, the hotel features more than 7,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function and meeting space.

Thompson Washington D.C. will benefit from Oxford’s extensive national luxury lifestyle hotel management experience which includes robust food and beverage offerings; sophisticated revenue management, social media, direct sales, e-commerce, and marketing strategies; its proven ability to run highly profitable rooms and meeting and event venues; highly effective recruiting, training and retention methods; and creative cost control initiatives.

Brad Mulvihill, Chief Development Officer of Oxford Capital Group, LLC added, “We are confident that Oxford’s comprehensive management approach will allow this beautiful property to achieve its full potential.”
