In October 2011, two of America's most stylish independent hotel groups — Joie de Vivre and Thompson — merged to create the JT Hospitality group. In February 2012, JT Hospitality was rebranded; Joie de Vivre and Thompson hotels now operate under the Commune Hotels & Resorts banner. Both brands are known for their unique styles, which they hope to bring to the rest of the world as they expand outside North America under the Commune umbrella. Properties from both brands appear regularly on our list of the Best Hotels in the USA; U.S. News-ranked hotels can be found below. In 2013, Commune Hotels & Resorts announced the launch of an additional brand Tommie, which offers value-conscious, youth-oriented accommodations for travelers. The first two Tommie hotels are expected to open in NYC in 2015.
