You’ll feel like a star at the opulent Giannini Place, a 1920s architectural gem and former Bank of Italy headquarters, named for the bank’s founder. The latest hotspot in Los Angeles to see and be seen, Italian-inspired architecture is the backdrop for the hotel’s lavish gathering places.
From jewel-toned velvet furnishings in the lobby to a cabinet of oddities in the library, interiors teeter on the fantastic with Jacques Garcia designs, also found at NoMad in Manhattan. California casual meets Old Hollywood where Oscar-worthy culinary marvels include signature dishes like black truffle roasted and stuffed chicken from executive Chef Chris Flint. Highlights include 241 exquisitely appointed hotel rooms featuring freestanding bathtubs and sculptural light fixtures.
Several hip dining and drinking areas showcase a lushly landscaped rooftop pool and bar you’ll never want to leave. But when you do, you’re just blocks away from the LA Metro’s quick rides to Santa Monica and Hollywood, perfect for plenty of stargazing and beach going, without all the road rage. In case you want to walk in LA––heck it could happen, right––the Arts District, Fashion District, Flower District, Bunker Hill, Gallery Row, Grand Central Market and Disney Concert Hall are all steps away. Enjoy Instagramming your iconic close-ups. www.thenomadhotel.com ◼
