Las Vegas to Welcome First Cannabis-Friendly Hotel — The Lexi

Elevations Hotels and Resorts has announced that the former Artisan Hotel is evolving into The Lexi Las Vegas with a multimillion-dollar renovation. The 64-room hotel concept will be the first in Las Vegas to introduce the idea of cannabis-friendly hospitality when it debuts in the spring.

Now under the leadership and ownership of Elevations Hotels and Resorts, The Lexi is the brainchild of Alex Rizk, Elevations president and CEO. Having cultivated the cannabis-forward hospitality experience with his first undertaking, The Clarendon Hotel in Phoenix, Rizk is excited for The Lexi to shine as the 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.

The Lexi will have all new guestrooms and suites, including an entire fourth floor that will be designated cannabis-friendly. Each room will include an air-filtration system that employs advanced oxidation cell technology. While normalizing the idea of cannabis in travel, The Lexi is also focused on creating a hospitality concept with a culinary and cocktail program, besides launching a spring/summer pool party season.

The Lexi will be home to a new Cajun-inspired steakhouse concept helmed by Executive Chef Jordan Savell (“Hell’s Kitchen” Season 19); the redesigned Artisan Bar & Lounge; The Lexi Pool (a European-style pool experience); and the remodeled Chapel Room. Additionally, The Lexi sports a refreshed lobby, designed to transform for live music and intimate entertainment concepts. The lobby will include a new walk-up café offering breakfast, late-night treats and cocktails.

Additionally, The Lexi will offer a membership initiative that is part of Elevation Hotels & Resorts’ proprietary program, Elevations Nation. Members will enjoy invitations to inclusive events, wellbeing activities and more.

The hotel is located just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, Downtown Las Vegas and the Arts District.
