Every velvety surface of this New York export exudes tasteful extravagence. Its nearly century-old building and refined, pedigreed dining spaces are quite unlike any other hotel in Downtown L.A.—and possibly the entire city. Even those who don’t stay in NoMad’s artfully appointed rooms will be transported with a seat in its neoclassical lobby restaurant.
Rooms come in a couple of configurations; no matter the size, they never feel cramped thanks to a stunningly tasteful choice of colorful furniture. You’ll likely want to spend much of your time outside of the room anyway. The hotel inhabits the Giannini Place building, the former 1922 headquarters of the Bank of Italy, and its neoclassical lobby provides a space that’s simultaneously grand yet inviting, thanks to a number of intimate nooks.
Chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara have installed multiple dining concepts in the hotel: a stumptuous lobby restaurant as well as a slightly more formal mezzanine restaurant, a mixology-driven lobby bar and a sunny Italian coffee bar that transforms into an amaro bar in the evening (with a rooftop bar still to come).
