NoMad Las Vegas Atelier Room Review

The weekend before Thanksgiving is a slow time for Las Vegas.  When I looked at my M life offers, I noticed I had complimentary nights at the new NoMad Las Vegas.  The NoMad is a hotel-within-a-hotel, occupying the top four floors of the Park MGM.  This concept isn’t new to the property, in the properties previous life as the Monte Carlo, the top floor was known as Hotel 32.

The NoMad is only a small, boutique hotel by Las Vegas standards — it has a total of nearly 300 rooms.  There are three other NoMad hotels (NYC, LA, London) around the world.  Overall I am quite impressed with what they have done with a nearly 25 year old hotel to make it feel fresh and luxurious.

Location

The NoMad Las Vegas is located on Floors 29-32 of the Park MGM.  The Park MGM is located between New York New York and the CityCenter where you find Aria, Vdara and the Waldorf Astoria.  A pedestrian bridge is currently under construction across Las Vegas Blvd that will connect the property to the east side of the strip just north of the MGM Grand. 

If you are arriving by taxi, there is an entrance for the NoMad just to the right of the entrance of Park MGM.  Look for the red awning.

Check In

The NoMad has its own small lobby.  It feels very dark and intimate.  When I arrived around 8:30pm on a Friday night, there was no one else checking in.

I was told I had been upgraded to an Atelier room on the 31st floor (out of 32).  I was told the NoMad pool was only open during the summer, but that I could use the Park MGM pool.  I was given my key card in a small red velvet envelope.

One thing to remember is that on top of the rate of the room you will pay $42 per night per room in “Resort Fee“.  So my “free” room was actually $84 for the weekend, still not too bad.  While Caesars Rewards waives resort fees for Diamond elites, M life does NOT waive resort fees for their top tier.

The elevators are down a short hall past a small shop.  The elevator bank serves floors 23-32 and key is needed to access the floors.

Something about the halls reminded of the Disney Tower of Terror.  I was assigned room 3130 which was the last room on the hall.

Room

The Atelier Room is a junior suite.  A small entry has a closet and toilet with sink to the right and shower with sink and bedroom to the left.

The bedroom has a king bed that faces the TV and desk.  A velvet couch with screens is to one side in front of the window.  The other side has a free standing pedestal bathtub.

Creative framed art is unevenly placed around the room, including paintings, photographs, mounted butterflies, and pressed plants.  Hardwood extends throughout the room.  Overall everything feels specifically picked out rather than generic hotel furnishings.

The decor is mostly 1920s Gatsby style down to the push button light switches.  Most of the lights are dimmable.

The view from my window is of the pool area and CityCenter.  The windows could definitely use a cleaning.

The pool on the upper level to the right by the “Jenaa” roof is the NoMad pool though NoMad guests can use any of the pools.

Back in the entry; the closet has robes and slippers.  There is no iron or iron board but there is a garment steamer.

Across from the closet is the mini bar built in to a steamer trunk.  Open the trunk for the mini fridge and safe.

Bathroom

This might be the first hotel room that has the bathroom spread across three rooms.  In addition to the tub in the bedroom, there is the walk in shower and main sink just off the bedroom area.

The shower is large with a standard shower head with good pressure.  There is no pressure controls but the water on/off dial is well placed so it can be turned on with out getting wet.

The bath products are “custom-made” Argan products though I don’t know what that means besides an upgrade from the standard generic soaps at other M life properties.  I liked the matching soap dish/cosmetics holder/tissue box and mismatching glasses throughout the room.

The third section of the bathroom is at the other end of the entry and includes the toilet and a second sink.  It is far enough away from the bed that I was able to leave the light on (dimmed) so I could find it in the middle of the night while not being disturbed by the brightness.

Amenities

In addition to the NoMad only pool, there is a bar and restaurant off the lobby that is open to anyone.  The fitness center and spa are shared with the Park MGM.

A great option onsite for food located between the casino and Vegas Strip is Eataly, a food hall concept that showcases various Italian foods.  The prices are surprisingly reasonable.  I was shocked when I bought a bottle of sparkling water and it was less than $2.  I got a breakfast crepe for $8 and a loaded pizza for lunch for $19.

Overall

The NoMad sets itself apart in Vegas.  While most other high end properties go for formal, the NoMad is high end but with some character.  It is a step up from the already good Park MGM.  The location is great and there are some good amenities on site like Eataly.  The footprint isn’t nearly the size of Bellagio or Caesars and it is manageable to navigate.

Have you stayed at the NoMad Las Vegas?  What was your impression?
