Of course it would be Las Vegas.
We’re talking about a new cannabis-friendly hotel in the city known for gambling, scantily-clad showgirls, star chef restaurants, top name concert stars and one of the most famous marketing campaigns in tourism history, “What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas”.
So, now, you can have your joint, spliff or gummies and party in your room before heading to the Strip, and then back to your cannabis-friendly room and 40 winks.
The new cannabis-friendly hotel is the boutique Artisan, which is undergoing a multi-million-dollar renovation to turn it into the 64-room Lexi-Elevations Hotels and Resorts.
When it opens later in 2023, it will be the first in Las Vegas to introduce the idea of cannabis-friendly hospitality, while also “putting a focus on providing guests and locals with transformative spaces that are inviting, approachable and completely unique”, according to the press release.
Normally, hotels and motels prohibit smoking of any kind in the rooms, and charge a hefty cleaning fee to anybody who violates the rules.
The Lexi will limit cannabis enthusiasts to the fourth floor, where each room and suite is equpped with a state-of-the-art RestorAir filtration system that employs Advanced Oxidation Cell (AOC) technology.
While normalizing the idea of cannabis in travel, The Lexi is focused on creating a premium hospitality concept for all guests with a promise of delivering personal and superior service, along with an inspired culinary and cocktail program and a spring/summer pool party season that is designed to provide a high-energy good time, but without gambling – The Lexi is a non-gaming hotel.
The Lexi will be home to a new Cajun-inspired steakhouse concept helmed by Executive Chef Jordan Savell (Hell’s Kitchen, Season 19), the newly designed Artisan Bar & Lounge, The Lexi Pool (one of Las Vegas’s only European style pool experiences), and the re-imagined Chapel Room.
There is a new grand lobby that will serve as the nucleus of The Lexi social scene, with live music, a towering one-of-a-kind indoor water feature, and a new walk-up cafe for breakfast, late night treats and cocktail service.
In addition, The Lexi will ultimately offer a membership initiative that is part of Elevation Hotels & Resorts proprietary program, Elevations Nation, a unique community of individuals with a wanderlust mindset, cannabis enthusiasm, and taste for new experiences. Members will enjoy invitations to inclusive events, wellbeing activities and more.
Now under the leadership and ownership of Elevations Hotels, The Lexi is the brainchild of Elevations President and CEO Alex Rizk.
Having already cultivated the cannabis forward hospitality experience with his first undertaking, The Clarendon Hotel in Phoenix, Rizk is launching The Lexi as a flagship property of his hospitality group.
“The Lexi allows the Elevations Hotels and Resorts brand to truly showcase our commitment to creating a new type of hotel concept that is defined not only by our acceptance and normalization of cannabis in the hospitality space, but also by our dedication to reclaim storied properties and transform them for the modern-day travelers,” said Rizk in that same press release.
“With The Lexi our goal is to provide guests with something truly new in Las Vegas. We plan to personalize the guest experience through our unique Elevations Nation membership clubs, as well as through distinctive on-property programming, and via partnerships within the community.”
The Lexi is located close to the Las Vegas Strip, Downtown Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Arts District.
