The once famed Artisan Hotel Boutique is evolving into The Lexi, a new 64 room hotel concept that will be the first in Las Vegas to introduce the idea of cannabis-friendly hospitality, while also putting a focus on providing guests and locals with transformative spaces that are inviting, approachable and completely unique. In a town known for its “bigger is better” philosophy, this new reimagined property is set to bring an intimate, modern, urban, and sexy travel experience to Las Vegas. Open while undergoing a multi-million-dollar renovation, The Lexi will make its stunning debut this spring.

Embracing its small and cheeky mentality, The Lexi will feature all new guest rooms and suites, including an entire fourth floor that will be designated cannabis-friendly with each room featuring a state-of-the-art RestorAir filtration system that employs Advanced Oxidation Cell (AOC) technology. While normalizing the idea of cannabis in travel, The Lexi is focused on creating a premium hospitality concept for all guests with a promise of delivering personal and superior service, along with a delicious and inspired culinary and cocktail program, and launching a spring/summer pool party season that is designed to provide a high-energy good time.

The Lexi will be home to a new Cajun inspired steakhouse concept helmed by Executive Chef Jordan Savell (Hell’s Kitchen, Season 19), the newly designed Artisan Bar & Lounge, The Lexi Pool (one of Las Vegas’s only European style pool experiences), and the re-imagined Chapel Room. Additionally, The Lexi has created a new grand lobby that welcomes guests in from their travels, as well as calls out to locals seeking a seriously good hang. Serving as the nucleus of The Lexi social scene, the lobby is designed to transform for live music and intimate entertainment concepts, and is highlighted by its towering ceilings, a one-of-a-kind indoor water feature, and a new walk-up cafe that will offer breakfast, late night treats and cocktail service.  

Additionally, The Lexi will ultimately offer a membership initiative that is part of Elevation Hotels & Resorts proprietary program, Elevations Nation; a unique  community of individuals with a wanderlust mindset, cannabis enthusiasm, and taste for new experiences. Members will enjoy invitations to inclusive events, wellbeing activities and more. 

Now under the leadership and ownership of Elevations Hotels and Resorts, The Lexi is the brainchild of Elevations president and CEO, Alex Rizk. Having already 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 fast-growing 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,” notes Rizk. “With The Lexi our goal is to provide guests with something truly new in Las Vegas. We plan to personalize the guest experience through our unique Elevations Nation membership clubs, as well as through our distinctive on-property programming, and via partnerships within the community.”

Located just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, Downtown Las Vegas and the eclectic Las Vegas Arts District, The Lexi is perfectly situated to create a new type of hotel in Las Vegas that celebrates the excitement of the city, while also offering guests a non-gaming, urban oasis that is close to the action, but set in its own Shangri-La like setting. For additional information, visit our landing page:
