This spring, a brand-new experience will be offered to Las Vegas hotel guests. The Artisan Hotel Boutique will rebrand as The Lexi, a 64-room hotel that will be the first in Las Vegas to offer cannabis-friendly hospitality. Owned and run by Elevations Hotels and Resorts (formerly Pro Hospitality Group), The Lexi is expected to open this spring.
“Located just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, The Lexi is embracing its small and cheeky mentality, and will feature all new guest rooms, including an entire fourth floor that will be designated cannabis-friendly,” reads a recent press relase. “While recognizing and normalizing the idea of cannabis in travel, The Lexi is set on creating a premium hospitality concept, an inspired culinary and cocktail program, and launching a spring/summer pool party season.”
The Lexi will feature a new Cajun-inspired steakhouse helmed by Executive Chef Jordan Savell, whom guests may recognize from Season 19 of Hell’s Kitchen. There will also be a redesigned Artisan Bar & Lounge, plus The Lexi Pool (“one of Las Vegas’s only European style pool experiences”).
The Lexi is the brainchild of Elevations president and CEO, Alex Rizk, the release tells us. And in fact, Rizk has already proven the concept of cannabis-forward hospitality with The Clarendon Hotel in Phoenix.
The Lexi will be Elevations Hotels and Resorts’ flagship property.
