Nomad Las Vegas
Viva Las Vegas! Let’s talk about one of the newest luxury hotels in Las Vegas, the Nomad Las Vegas. This luxury hotel is a hotel within a hotel, occupying the top four floors of the Park MGM. The Park MGM Las Vegas is also one of the newest additions to the strip. The Park MGM, once the former Monte Carlo, was shut down and was completely renovated from top to bottom. The Nomad Las Vegas has a very elegant European style just like its sister properties in Los Angeles and Manhattan.
Being a hotel within a hotel, the Nomad Las Vegas has a very boutique feel with only 293 guest rooms and suites. And with a separate check-in, private pool, the Nomad Restaurant and the Nomad Bar, you would never have to leave this hidden luxury oasis. We almost didn’t want to write this review in fear that we would give away this hidden gem!
The Nomad Las Vegas
Looking for the perfect escape from the Las Vegas Strip? The Nomad Las Vegas is it! The Nomad Las Vegas is close enough to all the action on the strip. But it’s far enough away to enjoy a luxurious escape from it all!
With European inspired style every where you turn, the dimly lit hallways, use of chic painted trim and the elegant carpet make this hotel truly feel luxurious. The overall vibe is very different than the over the top luxury you typically find in Las Vegas. It’s very playful, a little moody and a little dark. But we loved it.
Upon our arrival at the Nomad Las Vegas, we were quickly assisted with our luggage and shown inside to the front desk for check-in. Upon entering the hotel, it immediately felt like a Nomad, dimly lit and very elegant.
The Nomad Las Vegas is tucked away on the top 4 floor of the Park MGM. So the rooms are accessed by separate elevators next to the Park MGM elevators that only access the top 4 floors of the Nomad. Upon stepping off the elevator, the hotel splits into a Y. So it can be a little confusing which way to go with three dimly lit long hallways. But we ultimately found our way.
During our oasis at the Nomad, we stay in a Grande Suite. And let us be the first to tell you how Grand it truly was. The suite was much brighter in comparison to the rest of the hotel with oak hardwood floors, plenty of natural light, an amazing amount of texture from the use of fabrics and leather as well as plenty of unique artwork. The suite featured a separate sitting room, freestanding pedestal tub and a separate half bath and toilet room.
The suite was very elegant inspired with the use of emerald green velvet curtains, a king size bed with leather wrapped headboard and artwork everywhere you turn.
The Grand Suite offered a nice view of the strip and a great view of the adjacent Aria Resort & Casino. With large windows in both the living room and the bedroom, there was plenty of natural light when you wanted it, but the thick velvet curtains made the room very dark when you were ready to turn in.
If you have read very many of these hotel reviews, then you know that Le Labo are our absolute favorite hotel toiletries. The Nomad Las Vegas features Argan toilietries, which were just okay in our opinion.
When in Vegas, oneself needs to indulge in some excellent culinary cuisine. And that is exactly what the Nomad Las Vegas has to offer with the signature Nomad Restaurant, Nomad Bar, in-room dining plus the Nomad is just steps away from Eataly, Best Friend, and Bavette’s, all of which are located at the Park MGM.
If you are looking for an intimate place to grab drinks with a more relaxed atmosphere, then you have to check out the Nomad Bar. The bartenders take cocktail making into an art at this bar. And the drinks went down pretty easy too, especially the Runyon Canyon (our personal favorite).
If you are looking for somewhere for a nicer, more upscale dinner, then the Nomad Restaurant is the spot. The dining room is very elegant and a bit over the top with a collection of nearly 20,000 books on display in the vast bookcases. In addition to the main dining room, there are a couple smaller rooms all of which play tribute to certain aspects of Las Vegas.
Breakfast was served in the Nomad Bar. And the service, delicious menu offerings and the attention to detail were all incredible. We had to stop a time or two during breakfast and remember that this was breakfast and not a night out with fancy food and red carpet service. We tried the Eggs Benedict which was very classic yet perfect in every way, and the Two Eggs - any style, which was very predictable and cooked perfectly. Overall the dining experience for breakfast was incredible.
The Nomad Las Vegas features it’s own separate elevators, it’s own rooftop pool deck just for guests of the Nomad, a shared 24 hour fitness center at the Park MGM and the Nomad Store with select gifts, essentials and food & beverage.
The nice thing about staying at the Nomad Las Vegas is you have access to the Nomad Pool and the pool at the Park MGM. But guests from the Park MGM can’t use the Nomad Pool.
The fitness center at the Park MGM has all of the latest state-of-the-art cardio and weight equipment. It was very functional and enough to get a great workout in after you indulge in those Las Vegas calories.
In our opinion, the hospitality in Las Vegas isn’t up to par with other parts of the world we have visited. But they still do an excellent job. The Nomad Las Vegas provides excellent service. And we only experienced a few minor issues during our stay. Overall this level of service was fantastic in comparison to other properties we’ve stayed at on the strip.
The Nomad Las Vegas is truly a luxury escape just steps from the smoke-filled casino floors, bright lights and busy city streets. If you are looking for something very unique and different for Vegas, you definitely need to try out the Nomad. And another thing is the hotel is completely pet friendly!
