The Artisan Hotel

Artisan Pool

Although it was much too cold to enjoy the pool area, it did look posh and inviting. Plenty of daybeds for sunning, with a few cabanas on the other side and what looked to be like a bar setup for those days when the temperatures have climbed.

All in all, the Artisan exceeded my admittedly modest expectations. Staff was all friendly and helpful, from the valets to the front desk. One drawback for most out-of-towners is its location. While not exactly in the boondocks, the Artisan wouldn't be a good choice for those who like to see Vegas on foot. Fortunately, there are three strip clubs within walking distance, so its got that going for it, if that's your bag. Palace Station is on the other side of the freeway, so if you just had to stagger to a casino I suppose that would be an option (don't drink and drive, kids). I'd recommend this place to anyone (and by anyone I mean any non-gamblers) looking to get a quieter, more unique Las Vegas experience. Getting out of the glitz once in a while can be great.

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
