The Las Vegas Lexi to be first to offer Cannabis-friendly hospitality

It’s all the Buzz: Cannabis-Friendly Hotel to Open in Las Vegas

There’s a new hotel opening in Las Vegas this spring, and it has an unusual concept. In what used to be the Artisan Hotel Boutique, The Lexi will be a new 64 room hotel concept that will be the first in Las Vegas to introduce the idea of cannabis-friendly hospitality. It’s undergone a multi-million dollar renovation and has added a number of novel features, “With The Lexi, our goal is to provide guests with something truly new in Las Vegas,” says Lexi’s Alex Rizk.

The hotel will feature all-new guestrooms and suites, including an entire fourth floor that will be designated cannabis-friendly with each room featuring a RestorAir filtration system that employs Advanced Oxidation Cell (AOC) technology. The Lexi will feature a Cajun-inspired steakhouse concept and will sport a refreshed lobby, designed to transform for live music and intimate entertainment concepts. The lobby will also include a new walk-up café offering breakfast, late-night treats and cocktails.
