The sleek and sophisticated NoMad Las Vegas brings a slice of the Big Apple to the heart of Sin City. The NoMad Las Vegas is the third property within the NoMad Hotel collection (the original is in New York, and a second opened last year in Los Angeles). Built as a hotel within a hotel at the new Park MGM Resort and Casino, this property eschews the usual over-the-top Vegas flare in favor of a more subtle and modern aesthetic to transport guests away from the glimmering neon lights around them.
Budget Level: Upscale to Luxe ($150+ per night)
Lodging Type: Large hotel (293 rooms and suites)
What You Need to Know
Just past the Park MGM entrance behind Las Vegas Boulevard, a narrow, old-fashioned maroon canopy shields the hotel walkway, and this is just one of many ways this under-the-radar the property is different from the flashy hotels that line the Las Vegas Strip. Upon arrival, guests are escorted to the elegant check-in desk, which is dimly-lit and embellished with dark, rich fabrics. Once guests arrive at their rooms, they’ll notice the impeccable décor right away. Thanks to French architect and designer Jacques Garcia, each of the 293 guest rooms and suites is perfectly designed and styled. The rooms are meant to look and feel residential, yet they have a bit of an old-school, vintage flare. Every room is complete with custom furnishings, hardwood floors (a rarity in Vegas), curated artwork, bright-colored fabric dressing screens, and freestanding pedestal bathtubs. In addition to the many old-school touches, there are also modern amenities in the rooms, too, such as large flat-screen TVs and monogrammed slippers that have “Las Vegas” printed on them. Added bonus: There are convenient portable clothing steamers located in the closets.
Many of of the public areas at the NoMad exude dark, sexy, and mysterious vibes – just as Las Vegas does. For example, in the lobby, the bathroom doors are disguised as mirrored walls. If you're looking for a lively place to sit and chat over some bites, head to The NoMad Bar, the hotel’s all-day restaurant and a casual meeting spot for food and drink. Be sure to pop by on Sundays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for your favorite brunch staples while listening to live jazz music. What’s more, The NoMad Bar is also complete with an outdoor patio, which is the perfect spot for sipping cocktails on a sunny day. In addition, guests can dine at the elegant NoMad Restaurant (more on that below), stop by the casino for a quick game of Blackjack, take a dip in the serene rooftop pool, and pick up some last-minute essentials at the specially-curated gift shop. Plus, for a relaxing massage or refreshing pedicure, head to the Park MGM’s spa and salon, both of which are just stone's throw away (remember, The NoMad is a hotel within a hotel, so you won’t even have to leave the property to head over there).
Who Will Love It:
Guests who have stayed at the other NoMad properties will find their favorite creature comforts here, along with a level of intimate service and hospitality that is hard to find in Sin City. For those who aren’t familiar with the NoMad brand, the hotel provides guests with a more refined and low-key Vegas experience, compared to many of the other properties on the Strip. All in all, the NoMad Las Vegas is ideal for those looking to get away from the bright lights, neon signs, and the over-the-top flashiness of the city.
Who Might Not
The nuanced decor in the guest rooms may leave some feeling as if they are strangers in someone else’s apartment. In addition, if you love spacious hotel rooms and are looking for some of the biggest rooms in Vegas, you won’t find them here: standard rooms at this property are a modest 406 square feet.
The NoMad Restaurant is one of the most stunning restaurants in all of Las Vegas (fun fact: it used to be the Monte Carlo's sportsbook). The restaurant features an incredibly high ceiling, which is painted a beautiful shade of light blue — a stark contrast to the maroon and brown furnishings and accents that make up the rest of the space. Surrounding the entire eatery are rows of bookshelves stacked with books from the Rockefeller family’s personal collection. A row of tufted, dark-red leather booths runs down the middle of the restaurant, which creates a vintage vibe, as smaller tables line the perimeter of the space. Its menu was created by Daniel Humm, the chef behind the original NoMad restaurant in New York. Here, expect decadent fare such as oysters, lobster Thermidor, a 32-oz. ribeye, roast chicken stuffed with foie gras, and, of course, caviar (entrees range from $26 for broccoli, to $195 for an assortment of caviar).
Your standard room rate includes wifi, a stocked mini bar, complimentary 24/7 gym access, and newspaper delivery upon request.
Fees and Extra Costs:
Like many hotels in Las Vegas, The NoMad charges a resort fee of $37 plus tax, which covers wifi and other smaller amenities, including boarding pass printing and notary services. If there are more than three people per room, you’ll be charged an additional $35 per night, plus tax.
How to Get a Deal:
Book directly through the hotel’s website for the best rates and package options.
In the Neighborhood:
The NoMad Las Vegas is located within Park MGM Resort, which is right in the middle of the Strip. The Bellagio and Cosmopolitan are right next door, and Planet Hollywood is across the street, which means hotel guests are in walking distance to nearly everything.
McCarran International Airport is about a 15- to 20-minute drive away, depending on the traffic. Cabs will cost you around $25 each way, while an Uber or Lyft is around $12 each way.
The Bottom Line
The property is sultry, alluring, and a bit vintage — which makes it the perfect place to stay for those looking to experience a new side of Sin City.
