The First Unabashedly Marijuana-Friendly Hotel is Opening in Denver
California may have been the first state to legalize marijuana use, but Colorado takes the trophy for introducing the first hotel with specific accommodations and design details for smokers. Nativ Hotel—located in the LoDo (lower downtown) neighborhood of Denver—allows on-premises smoking. The hotel is full of little surprises that culminate into a pot smokers dream: living plant walls, a Stereo Lounge in the hotel’s basement, a coffee bar featuring CBD infused lattes, an in-room system that can mix 800 different drink combinations, and more.
Smoker or not, Nativ’s details are well worth seeing for yourself.
All fun details aside, what really makes this hotel stand out? Half of the hotels 16 rooms are promoted with weed-friendly balconies (no smoking in the rooms themselves, guests!). According to The Cannabist, a number of hotels in downtown Denver allow marijuana tour operators to stay in vape-friendly rooms, but Nativ is the first brand to take their marijuana-friendly status public. To kick off their opening, Nativ is hosting a three-day bash that starts today and goes through Saturday night.
