A cannabis-friendly hotel in Las Vegas will open this spring after the tourist city approved marijuana consumption lounges last year.
Phoenix-based Elevations Hotels and Resorts, formerly known as Pro Hospitality Group, bought the former Artisan hotel in 2022 for a reported $11.9 million.
Now called The Lexi and undergoing renovations, the 64-room hotel will feature “an entire fourth floor that will be designated cannabis-friendly,” according to a news release.
Elevations has invested more than $15 million in the hotel, President and CEO Alex Rizk told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The Lexi will also participate in Elevations’ membership rewards program targeted at “individuals with a wanderlust mindset, cannabis enthusiasm, and taste for new experiences.”
Elevations also owns the cannabis-friendly Clarendon Hotel in Phoenix, alongside several other Arizona hotels.
Rizk told the Review-Journal that Elevations hopes to expand to California.
The Las Vegas City Council approved cannabis consumption lounges in September 2022 after Nevada lawmakers approved them in 2021.
