The Artisan Hotel
As hotels in Las Vegas go, The Artisan Hotel is perfect for a hush-hust tryst, with rooms swathed in crushed velvet, mahogany beds and gilded mirrors. For a special occasion, splurge on the Masterpiece Suite, which has its own pool table – and if you’re feeling especially amorous, there’s a wedding chapel and outdoor garden patio for your nuptials. In the warmer months, lounge on cushy day beds at the lush, palm tree-enclosed pool, one of Vegas’ best-kept secrets. Service can be spotty and the hotel is less than ideal for business types or those looking for a typical strip experience, but arty creative souls love it for its dark, David Lynch-like feel.
