NoMad Las Vegas
Nudging up against the top entertainment venues along the city’s glitzy Strip, the NoMad is a grown-up boutique spin on a Las Vegas hotel. “The Strip is a great place to start,” explains John Block. “There are curated museums and art installations up and down this stretch of South Las Vegas Boulevard. At Park West Gallery alone, you’ll find nearly 1,000 works of art, ranging from originals by icons like Salvador Dalí, Toulouse-Lautrec and Pablo Picasso to works by contemporary artists like Peter Max, Mark Kostabi or Las Vegas native Michael Godard.” To complement your gallery hop, the NoMad’s rooms and suites – some with colorful area rugs, freestanding bathtubs, crystal decanters and Carrara marble sinks – feel like the elegant digs of an art collector, while the tranquil pool terrace, complete with Moroccan vibes, is sure to inspire your creative juices. It’s in an excellent location for visiting quirky museums and historical landmarks, and if you’re able to splash out on the Suite Royale, you’ll have a private library lounge, with its aubergine-hued pool table, perfect for nightcaps or unwinding with a good book.
