NoMad LA: An Iconic Hotel Debuts on the West Coast, Italian Grandeur Edition

March 5, 2018

On the corner of Seventh and Olive streets in downtown Los Angeles, the historic original Bank of Italy headquarters, located in a historic, neoclassical Giannini Place building—has a new tenant: NoMad Los Angeles, the second iteration of the chic New York hotel.

The hotel’s 241 rooms were designed by French architect and designer Jacques Garcia, who took his cues from the building’s architecture, which includes restored Doric columns and intricate gold and blue Italianate lobby ceiling.

Also on offer at the hotel: a rooftop pool, a library, and a restaurant and all-day Italian-inspired café (the first West Coast venture for chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara of  Make It Nice, the partnership behind Manhattan restaurants NoMad New York and Eleven Madison Park).

Take a look inside.
