NoMad Hotel finally landed in LA!
Located on the corner of 7th St. and Olive St., Giannini Place is a historic building built by Bank of America pioneer Amadeo Giannini in the 1920s as the Los Angeles headquarters of the Bank of Italy. After that, it was acquired by Sydney Group, which is known for its unique hotel management, and was renovated into NoMad Hotel Los Angeles from 2015 to 2017, following the NoMad Hotel in the NoMad area [North of Madison Square Park] in NY, which is the brand of the group.
Designed by Los Angeles architects Morgan, Walls & Clements at the time, the glamorous ceilings and marble floors of the Italian style lobby have been completely restored, as if you had traveled back in time, but you will be surprised at the atmosphere because of it's modernness.
This 12-story building has 241 guest rooms laid out in 7 different formats, and there is a restaurant on the first floor in the center of the building, so you can enjoy that atmosphere even if you are not staying in the hotel.
If you will have only for a drink, there is a bar and coffee shop in the corner. You can have a cup of tea while relaxing in the green chair in the photo.
Perhaps because the building was a bank, it looks like a maze. There is something like a gallery inside...
At that time, they were exhibiting contemporary art wigs, including expensive real wigs made for Lady Gaga.
The location is close to other sightseeing spots, so be sure to stop by as a break spot.
