Las Vegas’ biggest hotels are so large you can get lost in them–some even have “you are here” maps to help with navigation. But not everyone is looking for a mega-hotel experience, and a Las Vegas company, the Siegel Group, is betting on the market for smaller, boutique hotels. The group is renovating five hotels with an eye to creating sleek, hip, classy places. The Artisan, the St. Tropez, the Gold Spike, the Oasis at Gold Spike (which is attached to the Gold Spike), and The Resort on Mount Charleston are getting extensive makeovers. The idea is to create small, upscale, hip hotels.
The Artisan has been building a reputation as a boutique hotel for a few years. The decor is a eclectic mix that’s been compared to Paris in the Jazz Age, but the interior defies an easy description. The St. Tropez, located across the street from the Hard Rock, is reopening as Rumor in June. An great pool area is planned for Rumor, including cabanas. The Gold Spike and the Oasis at Gold Spike are located downtown, and the Oasis is getting a new pool as part of the renovations. Located outside of Las Vegas, The Resort on Mount Charleston attracts a large local crowd. It’s a great place to escape from the summer heat in Las Vegas. Improvements there include a new area for weddings.
Renovations are scheduled to be completed later this year.
