This hotel in Downtown Los Angeles takes residence in the historical Giannini Building on the corner of 7th and Olive Street, and it's gallant presence is full of endless treasures. From the lobby bites, to rooftop hand crafted cocktails, the NoMad Los Angeles is truly a destination for a design centric mind that revels in the details.

Pay attention to the details. The soul of the historic Giannini Place has awoken, and the energy can be felt on any street corner nearby. When entering through the doors on 7th and Olive Street, you will unintentionally hold your breath. This is the NoMad LA, and its gallant presence cast through the chosen eyes of Downtown has perhaps forever changed the perception of what it means to visit the city of Angels.

The days of visitors flocking to stay in Santa Monica or Hollywood are over. The renaissance revival of Downtown has coined Los Angeles as ‘the oldest new city in America,’ and the NoMad LA has shown up to cement this statement forcefully.

The rooms above are just divine. With precise purpose in mind, each unique setting offers a singular experience, with detailed signatures intertwined within the threads of sophistication.

Detail within the NoMad LA draws inspiration from the building’s storied beginning as the Bank of Italy. It originates with the inception of the lobby’s gold and blue Italianate ceiling. Like an invisible snowfall, enthused ideas have fallen from the upper interior, forming layers of neoclassical style to shape what one can only imagine a dream of F. Scott Fitzgerald would look like. The goal here was to build a community, elegant and casual” with the importance of “all things for all people.”

The Coffee Bar is polished with superiority, espresso by day, aperitif/digestif cocktails by night. The Library and Lobby offer a secluded setting for a light lunch or a glass of wine in the evening. Past the taxidermy is the all mighty Giannini Bar serving seasonal classics and custom mixtures. The rooms above are just divine. With precise purpose in mind, each unique setting offers a singular experience, with specific signatures intertwined within the threads of sophistication. The experience is topped off with a bar and pool to sink yourself into DTLA city views.

The NoMad has arrived to downtown Los Angeles, and with the breath held from its marvelous stature, comes the exhale of awe. The  Los Angeles location has undeniably set the bar for the current revelation of resurrection taking place in many of DTLA’s historic buildings, one detail at a time.


The rooftop pool is an escape, grab a good book and disappear before a busy night on the town

Let’s just cut to the chase… if James Bond was staying DTLA, this is where you would find him
