The Vibe: Putting glamour back into Las Vegas.
The Area: Within the Park MGM compound, at the south end of The Strip.
The DNA: NoMad Las Vegas is a ‘hotel within a hotel’ and occupies the top four floors of the Park MGM, which is in turn the reimagined Monte Carlo Resort. The name and look come from The NoMad hotel (now The Ned) in New York. The low lighting creates an immediate ambience, and there’s a continental flair in evidence in the artwork, including vintage prints of showgirls and the like. Alcoves contain stone altars, and life-sized dog sculptures watch over entrances. Rich red carpets lead to a brocade-laden front desk. The whole feel is opulent and European, perhaps unsurprisingly as the concept comes from Jacques Garcia, the nestor of maximalist interior design.
Suite-Me-Up: Stepping into the bedrooms, guests at Park MGM might feel as though they’ve entered their own private apartment (should they be handsomely well off and of impeccable taste); a mix of antique-inspired pieces, original artwork, and ‘found’ objects giving off that familiar Sydell Group flair. A standalone bathtub is also a classy addition that is unusual for Vegas, and this combines with the polished marble bathroom fittings to deliver an elevated boutique feel that’s elusive in this part of the world.
