Nomad Hotel Los Angeles

Los Angeles, USA

The hotel

NoMad’s LA outpost had a lot to live up to, following in the footsteps of their flagship hotel in New York – but it’s earned its place in the family. Like its big brother, it occupies an historic building – this time, the old HQ of The Bank of Italy – and the same genius design flair of Jacques Garcia has restored its 1920s neoclassical grandeur (and its blue and gold Italianate lobby ceiling), while making it ‘fit’ the fashionable scene of its downtown LA neighbourhood, a walk from the Arts, Fashion, and Flower districts, Bunker Hill, and the Historic Core. The contemporary rooftop’s everything you’d expect from LA, with its city views, chic heated pool, al fresco café, and cocktail bar. But, inside, it’s a tribute to Italy, with its gilt-edged décor, opulent Venetian-inspired cafe, and refined Mezzanine restaurant, overlooking the grand lobby.

I am appalled that these people have taken an unauthorised £227 from my bank account . On arrival they seemed to be under the impression that we had not paid in advance for the room, we explained that we had paid within our holiday package,and indeed had a voucher to prove it. At the time the reception staff accepted this, so why on earth take… Read more

At the time the reception staff accepted this, so why on earth take this money anyway without our knowledge ? I am still awaiting an explanation and response , utterly disgusting. Read less

There are two amazing things in this hotel: decoration (very art deco) and the food. Unfortunately customer service is overall lousy. Housekeeping is very poor. Trays with rests of food all over the hallways for hours. No ventilation, at least in my room. I went to the rooftop ((which is quite cool) to chill out and read (an actual book) and I was… Read more
There are two amazing things in this hotel: decoration (very art deco) and the food. Unfortunately customer service is overall lousy. Housekeeping is very poor. Trays with rests of food all over the hallways for hours. No ventilation, at least in my room. I went to the rooftop ((which is quite cool) to chill out and read (an actual book) and I was told by a waiter that if I was by myself he may be needing the table for a bigger party. Not nice. Valet people are indeed very nice and welcoming. The location is not that good. You need a car for almost everything. Not a great experience. Read less

A lot has been written about how Downtown Los Angeles is making a "Comback"...a world-class hotel like The NoMad Hotel is DEFINITELY helping return Downtown L.A. back to the glamorous city center that it once was back in the 1920's-late 1940's!

A lot has been written about how Downtown Los Angeles is making a "Comback"...a world-class hotel like The NoMad Hotel is DEFINITELY helping return Downtown L.A. back to the glamorous city center that it once was back in the 1920's-late 1940's! Every interaction with the staff at the NoMad Hotel was great...although the hotel is a 5-star property, the staff is devoid of that stuffy, phony attitude and instead is so incredibly friendly and outgoing. The hotel is gorgeous...the lobby and entry off Olive Street are so elegant...something desperately needed in Downtown Los Angeles hotel. The guest rooms are lovely: incredibly comfortable yet beautifully decorated in the European style with touches of Italy. Dinner at the restaurant was in a word, Fabulous! n an effort to keep my review from rambling on an on, this hotel is a MUST STAY when in Los Angeles!! Read less

Beautiful room, not large not small but enough (good for a business traveller) bathroom stocked with Argan products was a nice touch.

Beautiful room, not large not small but enough (good for a business traveller) bathroom stocked with Argan products was a nice touch. The decor throughout the hotel is really cool if you like architecture, the building itself is amazing with plenty of space to work. Small gym, nothing to rate there and the reception staff although helpful, were a little frosty. Would stay again but downtown at night can get sketchy especially by the 711 opposite. Read less

This is a hotel with style and substance. The design has captured the period detailing of the old bank of Italy and given it an opulent and sometimes quirky makeover. The staff are friendly and efficient. I found the hotel a relaxing place to stay in a good location for downtown LA. Rooftop pool was great as was the food up there. One niggle is… Read more
This is a hotel with style and substance. The design has captured the period detailing of the old bank of Italy and given it an opulent and sometimes quirky makeover. The staff are friendly and efficient. I found the hotel a relaxing place to stay in a good location for downtown LA. Rooftop pool was great as was the food up there. One niggle is that the bed is super soft and if you have a back problem this will be an issue for more than one nights stay. Perhaps a couple of firmer mattresses could be purchased for those who find the choice of mattress more important than the choice of pillows. Read less
