A good range of accommodations are on offer at the LES. They are all appointed along the same lines but differ in size, views and amenities. The standard room, which is of a relatively generous surface area, looks out, through its floor-to-ceiling windows, onto Allen Street and has as its most notable feature (like all the rooms) a black hardwood floor. The low queen bed, which is dressed in custom 400-count SFERRA linens, is crowned by a Lee Friedlander light box depicting a black and white image of a forest. The furniture is made from a wood with a very heavy grain and comprises a desk, wardrobe and shelf/storage unit fixed to the wall. Other fixtures include a desk chair, round bedside tables and reading lights suspended from wires running from the floor to the ceiling. On the technology side there is a flatscreen television, iPod docking station and telephone while you'll also find a minibar and snacks, umbrella, safe and bathrobes in your room. The WC is a little on the small side but its vanity is in the same wood as the room's furniture and features a slate monsoon shower cubicle, Kiehl's toiletries and a hairdryer. The size of the windows ensures that the room is bathed in light while the simple colour scheme ensures that it stays zen. For a little more space you could go for the king superior, the same room with both a larger bed and surface area, or the studio king suite, which has a living area with corner couch and coffee table (separated by a bead curtain) and toilet with separate loos all in the same style. The larger rooms have terraces and balconies as well as both showers and bathtubs in the bathrooms. The Thompson suite enjoys sweeping views of the city in addition to the dining area and gas fireplace while the Thompson loft, the largest room, is spread over the top two floors and boasts a glass corner lobby.
