Boutique Hotels in Las Vegas

Hotels, What's New — By thmeeks on April 30, 2010 at 4:25 am

Inside the Artisan

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.

    Can you recommend a cheaper hotel than this? Or are these really the cheapest and best hotels in las vegas?

  • Terrisa Meeks says:

    Great question! Boutique hotels here are not cheap–they’re trendy and cozy, but not necessarily easier on your pocket book. If you are looking for more budget-friendly accomodations, I suggest looking at some of the Strip’s older properties like the Flamingo or Bally’s; both are centrally located on the Strip and the Flamingo has a great pool area. (All Harrah’s properties, a group that includes the Flamingo and Bally’s, have been offering substantial discounts this summer). In Downtown Vegas, the El Cortez is a reasonably-priced classic. Going a little off the Strip to neighborhood casinos like the Goldcoast and the New Orleans will also bring down the price–the Goldcoast is advertising rooms from $27.00 per night–although like every advertised room special here, you can expect to pay substantially more on the weekends. Staying mid-week, if possible, will give you the best rates. And I’ve been reading good things about the re-modeled rooms at Circus-Circus–if you don’t mind the giant circus tent theme, you can pick up a deal on a room.

    I would like to take the ability of thanking you for the professional instruction I have always enjoyed checking out your site. I’m looking forward to the actual commencement of my school research and the entire planning would never have been complete without coming over to your blog. If I may be of any help to others, I’d personally be pleased to help via what I have gained from here. Palm Beach Gardens
