NOMAD HOTEL ROLLS THE DICE ON LAS VEGAS
The NoMad Hotel in New York, a sweet little gem of a property from the Sydell Group, made the bold move towards expansion last year with the announcement of a NoMad Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. And it looks like that small step was the expansion confidence they needed as now the NoMad is planning to open a third hotel—in Las Vegas. (Alright, go ahead, say it: “Vegas, baby, Vegas!”)
The Sydell Group recently announced a partnership with MGM Resorts which will bring a NoMad Hotel to the Vegas strip within the old Monte Carlo casino. The building will actually be divided into two different hotels—The Park MGM (so named for the new outdoor dining park that’s opened next door with a theater set to open this fall) and The NoMad. Sydell Group will be working with MGM on pulling together both hotels, not just the NoMad.
The Park will have about 2,700 guest rooms aimed at the “younger, well-traveled demographic seeking unique experiences and innovative design.” (#Millennials.) The NoMad, will stick true to its intimate roots, with just 292 guest rooms and suites, a dedicated drop-off and lobby, swimming pool and even gaming. Sydell has tapped French designer Jacques Garcia, who has worked on the Royal Monceau and Hôtel Costes, with the interiors.
But that’s not all. A NoMad restaurant from chef Daniel Humm and restauranteur Will Guidara will open here as will an outpost of Eataly–the Italian marketplace where small cafés, to-go counters and restaurants are blended in with a marketplace of Italian goodies.
NoMad will join other boutique hotels on the Strip such as the Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay, Nobu at Caesars Palace the SLS, and the W Las Vegas which will open within a tower of the SLS this fall.
But we’ve got some time before this happens. Construction on the Monte Carlo will begin later this year and take about two years. Can’t do the math? Expect to stay at NoMad in Vegas in late 2018.
