Tired of the same old vacation or stay-cation? Want a unique and memorable experience without spending a fortune? Las Vegas has a hot new trend: boutique hotels. While the amenities they offer are mostly the same as other hotels what is different is the experience. Boutique hotels are typically smaller and offer a unique style and décor. They also provide an attention to customer service that is hard to find at a large hotel. Three of Las Vegas’ most popular boutique hotels are The Artisan, Rumor, and The El Cortez Cabana Suites. When you enter
The Artisan the first word that comes to mind is decadent. It’s hard to decide what to look at first! Their gothic art and mirror filled lobby offers something new to look at every time you turn your head.
Mood is their ornate restaurant which is located just off the ultra lounge. Enjoy a drink at the bar or head out to the patio. Or if you just want to relax, you can hang out by the pool that is surrounded by trees and feels like you are at a tropical resort. The rooms at the Artisan, while not as decadent as the lobby, are also filled with art work, each room featuring a different artist. Visit Rumor and you’ll notice their sleek contemporary design. The chic lobby/lounge is designed with bright colors and modern décor and is adjacent to the restaurant, A “Suite” Stay Addiction. With floor-to-ceiling glass walls, the restaurant and lounge create a mood that is bright and chic by day and alluring at night. Head out to the pool and you are transported to a private beach with hammocks, volleyball court, and private cabanas where it feels like a party is ready to erupt. The spacious rooms at Rumor are all painted by the same artist but all are very different with elevated in-room spa tubs.
The El Cortez Cabana Suites put you in the heart of all the downtown action. The retromodern décor, 24 hour guard, and concierge service make you feel like a high roller. They may not have a restaurant but anything you want is within walking distance…or pick up the phone and call room service. Their state of the art exercise room is ideal for the traveler or local who like to keep up their workout routine even on vacation. The rooms’ upscale furnishings are not to be out done by the exquisite, marble tiled, modern bathrooms. While any hotel can provide you a place to sleep not all can give you the experience that you get at a boutique hotel. If you are looking to spend a night away from home and don’t want a boring, cookie-cutter experience then one of these boutique hotels promises to be the place for you.
