NoMad Hotel: A New Classic

Rare in this city is the anticipated opening that does not come out of Hollywood. Nevertheless, the new NoMad Los Angeles hotel, which bowed last month on corner of 7th and Olive Street in Downtown, has a Hollywood story to tell. The hotel takes over the Giannini Building, which was originally built in the 1920s and the one-time headquarters of the Bank of Italy, which helped bankroll Walt Disney’s badly over budget Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Like that film, this one has all the makings of a classic: a building with much of its neoclassical character, veteran leadership at every level, the essence of its celebrated predecessor NoMad New York, and a sensitivity to the cultural, social and physical fabric of its local environ. How could it not be a hit?
