On Jan.1st, 2014, the state of Colorado began allowing the sale of recreational marijuana to anyone 21 or older. Since the legalization of cannabis, Colorado has seen an economic boost, so what’s next for the marijuana industry in the western U.S. state? A luxury pot hotel of course.
The city of Denver is slated to open its first luxury pot hotel later this week. NATIV Hotel, which is formerly known as Jet Hotel, will be a luxury boutique hotel set in Denver’s trendy LoDo district. The posh property features 16 rooms, and eight of them will have balconies where guests will be able to legally smoke marijuana. NATIV will also feature a Canbria café, where it will serve coffee infused with imported cannabidiol (CBD ), a compound of marijuana often used to treat medical conditions.
Owned by Richmond Meyer, who is also a partner of Keef Cola, a company that produces medical marijuana beverages, the hotel boast plush amenities. Guests will have access to a full-service butler who will tend to your every need. The suites feature 24-hour room service, a fully stocked mini bar, in-suite spa services, same day laundry and dry cleaning, and much more.
In addition, guest can party where they sleep. The property will have an on-site lounge, where guests can hang out in the VIP lounge, enjoy bottle service and dance the night away.
In regards to NATIV and his choice to open the boutique hotel, Meyer told The Cannabist, “Other hotels will fine you crazy amounts and kick you out. I’ve been kicked out of a hotel in Denver for smoking cannabis — it was a mid-tier, smaller hotel, and it was a few years back, but that’s the kind of stuff that won’t happen in our hotel.”
Keep in mind, marijuana consumption is confined to hotel rooms’ balconies, and is not permitted inside.
