The Artisan Hotel

Review By VT Superfriend MiddleClassBuzz

Posted by Chuckmonster

Upon arrival, I was informed that the Artisan is an "eco-friendly" hotel. Other than the room-key activated light and thermostat in the room, I couldn't really figure out why it deserved this designation. In fact, the light was on when we entered our room- God only knows for how long. Of course the thermostat didn't work and the heat wasn't on, so it was a bit chilly. Not exactly welcoming but it did add to the whole haunted-mansion vibe. Unfortunately it took two calls to the front desk to get someone up to take a look at it, but eventually they did get it flipped on.

Artisan Desk


Artisan Bed

Our bed was a healthy sized King, a little light on the blankets but with plenty of pillows. The mattress was a bit firm for my liking, but comfy just the same. Flat screen TV on the wall, small corner desk, chair in the corner. Pretty standard stuff. Just like the lobby, the room came equipped with art and mirrors adorning the walls.

I know the club scene can get pretty loud there at night. You were there sometime around Thanksgiving, so I can imagine it was so bad. Did you get any whiff of that the day-after?

@JohnD I didn't see any of that. We were there Wednesday and Thursday night and out by 10 on Fri. morning. It was deadsville the entire time.

Thoroughly impressed. That pool area looks like a pretty awesome summer spot if they keep the club factor to a minimum.

The Siegel Group does a great job with their hotels. I stayed at Rumor a few months ago (during the soft opening) and I was very impressed.

It's so interesting to see how Siegel is handling Artisan and Rumor. Of course, they started out with "Siegel Suites", which are basically clean & safe low-rent motels often used as longer term housing by low-wage Strip workers, so many were wondering how on earth they'd reopen the more artsy/hipster Artisan and open the more glam Rumor. Yet so far, both seem to be humming along. We got to give Siegel credit for knowing how to run motels and hotels here.

The pool area does look awesome. I LOVE little boutique hotels. Or hotels that are non-chain. I love staying in unique places which is why I think I love Vegas as a whole. All of the hotels are different for the most part.

Every time I travel I try to find the most unique hotel I can possibly find.

I have been to both hotels Rumor and Artisan. I must say they are both great! Artisan just got voted best after hours in Vegas and it does get crazy on the weekends. During the week its a mellow hidden gem! I have sent so many people there I should get a referal fee!

The pool area looks nice. But would only be nice if it wasn't a crazy "day life" scene. As far as the rest? The style of decor really isn't to my tastes.

@jsmeeker
very Goth, as someone I showed this to commented.

Glad there are options, and an alternative to the mega-corporate operators on the Strip -- for my money, as a tourist I still rather like staying in the resorts.

The Siegel Group also owns Siegel Suites notorious for crime,drugs and shotty,poor living conditions .
The location on Boulder Hwy&Nellis had a stabbing in 2009 The recession had made them rich

People get stabbed at extended stay motels and at apartment complexes in every city.

Comparing the Siegel Suites chain with The Artisan, Rumor and the Gold Spike would be like comparing Circus Circus with the Mirage. Two completely different markets these properties cater towards.

Not true the Artisian was a shit hole before the redo-Read up on it JACKHOLE
