The Thompson Hotel
As an independent hotel, it’s not always easy to compete again the big hotel chains and franchises. But the “Travelers Choice” award has been presented to The Thompson Hotel several times over a number of years. This certificate of excellence is a testament to the quality of service offered by the staff of The Thompson Hotel. What sets this hotel apart from many others in Kamloops is that Thompson Hotel is a family-owned hotel. Depending on the season, the hotel employs between 20 and 40 staff members. As it’s a business for accommodation, the hotel is open every day of the year for 24 hours a day. Most of the hotel patrons come to visit Kamloops from out of town. In such a centralized location downtown there are many opportunities to explore everything the city has to offer.
There are many reasons to choose The Thompson Hotel for your stay in Kamloops. With a variety of amenities for patrons, The Thompson Hotel has various opportunities for everyone staying there. Their games room is particularly unique with multiple big-screen TVs, two pool tables, air hockey, foosball, an arcade with a pinball machine, and board games. There’s also an indoor pool and hot tub located on the premises. Instead of congregating with larger groups inside a hotel room, their amenity area is a great place for groups to hang out. The best part of being located downtown is being within walking distance of dozens of restaurants, the nightlife, shopping, Riverside and Music in the Park, as well as everything else located in downtown Kamloops.
A Word from Kav Sangha
Kav Sangha, the co-owner of The Thompson Hotel, began working there in 2018. He states that prior to working there he had “wanted to get into the hotel business for many years”. He waited for the right opportunity and property to present itself. According to Sangha, one of the most appealing aspects of this hotel is that it has “two on-site brewhouse restaurants”. Sangha affirms that what makes his hotel stand out “is our amazing games room and pool area, as well as our fantastic on-site brewhouse restaurants”. Located nearby is The Nobel Pig and Alchemy Brewing, which are two local hotspots for visitors searching for some excellent quality beer in downtown Kamloops.
Sangha says that they strive to “provide the best combination of quality and value in the local accommodation market”. He’s proud of his business for being a successful independent local business when so many franchises and big-chain hotels are situated in Kamloops. When a patron enters The Thompson Hotel they can expect “great service and great value” says Kav Sangha. Part of what makes The Thompson Hotel so unique is that they’re an independent hotel in Kamloops. And the KCBIA agrees that The Thompson Hotel is a special hotel!
