The tease is over, I’m finally posting my NoMad Los Angeles review after parading all the beautiful photos on my Instagram. Much like my NoMad NYC review (found Here and Here), it will be broken up into two posts because one post simply cannot cover all the architecture beauty of the hotel as well as the amazing interiors. Today’s post will focus on the guest rooms which we have stayed and in the next post, I will take you on a visual journey through out the building itself as well as the various amenities the hotel has to offer.
Located on the corner of 7th and Olive Street, The NoMad Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles continues in the spirit of the original NoMad in New York by taking residence in the historic building, Giannini Place. Originally built in 1923 to house the headquarters for The Bank of Italy, the building’s Neoclassical façade with gold and blue Italianate lobby ceiling has been fully restored and serves as inspiration throughout. Honoring its rich history, The NoMad Downtown LA Hotel naturally balances the integrity and character of the art deco landmark with a contemporary California design sensibility.
As with NoMad New York, NoMad LA is a collaboration with French designer Jacques Garcia on the design and Chef Daniel Humm and Will Guidara on the restaurants, while adapting the approach to seamlessly blend into the vibrant tapestry of Downtown L.A. The hotel houses 241 rooms, including 33 suites and each of the rooms look to Italy for inspiration with a soft color palette drawn from the building’s fully restored, original gold and blue Italianate lobby ceiling. Every room is appointed with custom-designed furnishings, original artwork curated by Paris-based design studio be-poles, Bellino linens, and large flat screen TVs. Many rooms also feature freestanding pedestal bathtubs and separate water closets.
My favorite room to stay at NoMad are the Atelier rooms. Why? Becuase of the freestanding pedestal bathtubs in the middle of the rooms. The room I had in NYC faced the Empire State building. While the view for the Los Angeles location wasn’t as stately or historical, it was beautiful non-the-less with downtown high rise and beautiful brown stones in the surrounding neighborhood.
The following features and amenities can be found in all of their guest rooms and suites:
– King bed with custom Bellino linens
– Marble writing desk, settee and original artwork
– Walk-in shower with Terrazzo floors and separate water closet
– Fully stocked minibar
– Complimentary High-speed wireless internet access
– Nightly turndown service
– Daily newspaper delivery upon request
Stay tuned for Part 2 of the review where I cover the restaurants, bars and library in this beautiful hotel. I’m also going to show case some super Instagrammable spots for those who loves showing off beautiful spaces.
