One of Inovus Design’s most recently completed projects has just opened in Los Angeles! The NoMad Hotel, located on the corner of 7th and Olive Street in DTLA, opened on January 21st. The hotel shares many similarities to its New York predecessor with its historic roots, classic design and five star restaurant. The NoMad hotels are the brainchild of the Sydell group, a partnership between Ron Burkle and Andrew Zobler. Sydell Group is the creator and manager of many unique hotels; their aim is to collaborate with original talent within the world of design, food, beverage, and retail, and bring them together to create compelling new hotel experiences. This is most certainly the case as NoMad LA resides in the historic Giannini Place building which was originally built in the 1920s and served as the headquarters for the Bank of Italy. The italian influence can be seen in the buildings historic details including the magnificent blue and gold Italianate lobby ceiling. Jacques Garcia, the French interior designer, led the NoMad LA design aesthetic and brilliantly worked with the buildings historic details while implementing new life into the spaces. Garcia’s goal was to draw on the classic inspiration from the Italianate details while looking to the California coast for contemporary style.
There will certainly not be a lack of choice when eating at NoMad LA. The Michelin star honored chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara (who were the hospitality team that worked on the food and beverage service at the NoMad New York) bring their innovative and delicious food to the Los Angeles location. The pair is behind the diverse array of restaurants throughout the hotel. There are upscale restaurants, coffee bars with pastries, elegant bars with award winning cocktails, and several dining and drinking areas located at the incredible rooftop pool.
The property itself includes 241 rooms with luxe touches like clawfoot tubs and custom-made Persian rugs. Its location (within walking distance from the Arts, Fashion and Flower Districts as well as Bunker Hill, Gallery Row, South Park and the Historic Core) will offer guests the opportunity to explore every facet of DTLA’s rich culture. The Nomad LA hotel was listed as one of Travel + Leisure Magazine’s “21 Hotels We Can’t Wait to Visit” and is a welcome addition to the unique and exciting environment in DTLA!
