Nomad Vegas Fine Hotels & Resorts

At the risk of stating the obvious, a reasonable rate doesn’t often align with a Fine Hotels & Resorts stay.  Indeed, some Amex Platinum holders aren’t fans of the FHR credit because it’s essentially a coupon on a sky-high room rate.  Discovering an attractive rate for an FHR stay can feel like a minor miracle.  I found one with the Nomad in Las Vegas, and I recalled Shawn glowing about the property.  Tacking a Nomad night on to the end of my recent quick trip was a no-brainer, especially given the perks I received.  Here are the Nomad Vegas Fine Hotels & Resorts benefits and my overall take on the experience.

Nomad Vegas Fine Hotels & Resorts Benefits

The Nomad front desk rep provided a complete list of Fine Hotels & Resorts benefits at check-in.  They are as follows:

  • Early Check-In:  Noon check-in, when available.
  • Room Upgrade:  Upon arrival, when available.  Certain room categories may not be eligible for upgrades.
  • Late Check-Out:  Guaranteed 4:00 pm late check-out.
  • Daily breakfast for Two: Up to two $30 breakfast credits per day, eligible at Primrose Cafe only.  Gratuity is not included.
  • In-room Wi-Fi:  Daily $5 credit applied toward the daily resort fee, subject to applicable tax.
  • FHR Food and Beverage Credit:  $100 food and beverage credit to be used during your stay.  Limit one per room per stay.  Excludes tax, gratuity, in-room dining, retail, and minibar items.  Credit is eligible at over 120 MGM Resorts restaurants, bars, and lounges.  The list of eligible properties is available here.

My Take

Similar to the Bellagio, the Nomad held up their end on each of the Fine Hotels & Resorts benefits.  After checking out of the Bellagio mid-afternoon, I arrived at the Nomad at about 3 pm and was immediately checked in to an available room.  The front desk agent upgraded me to an Atelier Room on the 30th floor.  The Atelier, which the Nomad considers a suite, is a bit more spacious than the Classic King (528 versus 406 square feet), primarily in the entry area.  It also sports a pedestal bathtub and a separate powder room.  The rep offered a 4 pm late checkout, but I didn’t need it due to my flight the next morning.

My only breakfast credit option was Primrose – a solid option, thankfully.  The portions are shamelessly Vegas-sized here, and I got through just over half my breakfast.  More importantly, Primrose didn’t deliver quantity at the expense of quality.  Like the Bellagio, the food and beverage credit is a Nomad standout.  The credit is redeemable at a variety of MGM Vegas properties.  I enjoyed using the credit at the Nomad Bar and Tom’s Urban next door at NYNY.

The front desk competence at MGM properties for FHR stays continues to impress me.  Upon checkout, the rep provided an accurate folio which had already accounted for all credits.


I’ve noticed the Nomad is often available at well under $200 a night throughout the year.  This is probably the most consistent, best return for a one-night Vegas FHR stay.  I don’t have any status with MGM or its partners, so I couldn’t avoid the resort fee.  But, similar to the Bellagio, for what I received, I had no problem forking that over.  The Nomad delivers FHR value with character, and using my Platinum credit here again would be a pleasure.  How was your Nomad Vegas Fine Hotels & Resorts experience?

    • When did you try to last book the NoMad utilizing FHR? It is still available on Amex Travel but not with FHR or Hotel Collection. Noticed it was gone on Friday.

      Understand the retired lifestyle is a little slower, but what once doesn’t mean it still is. Instead of calling something BS maybe go try it out for yourself.

  1. I booked it under Fine Hotels for June and has been confirmed so I would escalate if a front desk clerk told me that. I’ve got it all documented on the reservation.

    Glad to see the review. My net was $15 ($215 less $200 credit that has already posted). The. You add the breakfast and $100 FB comp and it is a great deal

  2. Hi
    I am currently checking for this hotel right now and agent is telling me that NOMAD is no longer part of the fine hotel resorts collections.

    • Flor,
      If that’s the case, a bit of time may resolve your conundrum. FHR properties have been known to disappear and later return.
