A community in the heart of Tyler, Texas


Tyler has always welcomed us, and we want to share that spirit with all travelers. The Thomas is a place for Tylerites and Travelers to gather, meet, play, rest, recharge and experience the beauty of this magical town together. Consider the Thomas the gateway to Tyler: your local guide to the best-kept secrets our special town has to offer.

A Beacon of History

Our family has proudly and passionately served the city of Tyler for generations. After all, one of our very own Toms started the Texas Rose festival back in 1933. Our legacy is defined by our commitment to our home, and we are dedicated to protecting and growing our small slice of paradise. At The Thomas, we’re proud of our history, and use our heritage to propel us into the future. That’s why we’ve imagined a new standard in hospitality in Tyler with The Thomas hotel.
