Today we’re landing in London for a quick overnight stay, before boarding the Royal Princess tomorrow. There’s no question it’s been a busy few weeks, with lots of airport time and hotels.
But one of the best parts of travel (besides the experiences and memories made), is the inspiration that comes from seeing new places. Last week’s trip to LA was for an exciting project I’ll be able to reveal soon, and also came with a surprise source of major inspiration…my hotel!
I chose the NoMad Hotel Los Angeles for it’s close proximity to my meetings, but my jaw never left the floor for my entire 24-hour stay.
It only opened earlier this year, but since it’s in a restored building from the early 1920s, it’s full of character, and old-world charm. (It used to house the Bank of Italy.) Rich textiles, a regal color palette, and all original artwork mingle with modern touches like pedestal bathtubs, luxury bedding, and top-notch food (and cappuccinos!).
I was surprised by downtown LA, too…so many great spots within walking distance, and a short 30-minute drive from the airport.
It’s the kind of place you want to hole up and explore every corner for several days with your hubby or best friends! I made the most of my quick 24-hours and left feeling so inspired…especially for all things pink and green, with a hefty dose of palm!
What’s the most stylish hotel you’ve ever stayed in? Let me know so I can add it to my bucket list!
