Cannabis-friendly hospitality will arrive in Las Vegas, Nevada, this spring with the opening of The Lexi, a 64-key property located just off the The Strip.
The hotel – formerly the Artisan Hotel Boutique – is being renovated and rebranded under the leadership and ownership of Elevations Hotels and Resorts.
The Lexi is the brainchild of Elevations’ president and CEO Alex Rizk, who cultivated the cannabis-friendly hospitality experience with his first undertaking, The Clarendon Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona.
“The Lexi allows the Elevations Hotel 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.
When it opens, The Lexi will feature all new guestrooms, with accommodations on its fourth floor designated cannabis-friendly. It will also be home to a new Cajun-inspired steakhouse helmed by executive chef Jordan Savell (Hell’s Kitchen, Season 19), a newly-designed Artisan Bar & Lounge, and The Lexi Pool, which will deliver one of Las Vegas’s only European-style pool experiences. Additionally, the new grand lobby is highlighted by towering ceilings, an indoor water feature, a new walk-up café, cocktain service, and live music and entertainment concepts.
Moving forward, The Lexi will be launching a spring/summer pool party season, and offering a membership initiative that is part of Elevation Hotels & Resorts proprietary program, Elevations Nation, which is created for individuals with a wanderlust mindset, cannabis enthusiasm, and taste for new experiences.
