CANNABIS FRIENDLY ACCOMMODATIONS
From picking up a vape pen in one of the rooms at Denver Nativ or poolside at the Dream in Hollywood. To checking into a cabin on the same beach Bob Marley once lived or visiting a coffeehouse in Amsterdam.
For an elevated escape here are some of the best cannabis-friendly hotels and places to visit from around the world.
First In-House Hotel Dispensary
Lord Jones at the Standard Hotel
West Hollywood, California
Per usual, Hollywood is at the forefront of the cannabis cultural shift. For the most perfect group getaway, book your buds at The Standard in Hollywood and come experience the first brick and mortar in-house hotel dispensary in collaboration with the lauded, edible sophistication of Lord Jones.
We’ve heard this also means weed-infused, travel-sized bottles of shampoo and CBD chocolates placed on guest pillows. Hollyweed is definitely one of the best cities to visit in California and with Lord Jones by your side you wont want to leave.
Original Boutique Hotel
Portland’s original boutique hotel, which earned design accolades from Architectural Digest in 2016, has teamed up with locally-based companies to compile an “Everything But The Weed Kit” for its cannabis-consuming guests.
While no cannabis flower or oil is included, a colorful travel pouch is filled with the latest issue of Oregon Leaf, munchies, Jupiter tee shirt, dispensary coupons, a Jayne vape pen, lighter and grinder.
The BullDog Hotel
The Bulldog Hotel
Yes, it’s still illegal to consume in a hotel, and the Airbnb pickings are slim in the land of the original cannabis coffeeshop. However, the infamous and first-of-its-kind Bulldog gets to make its own rules.
All hostel-style rooms are non-smoking, but there’s a roof terrace and the lobby Loungebar (in their words, for all your “loung’n, chill’n, drink’n & puff’n needs!”) where you can partake. Pro tip: Assuming you don’t want to relive your study abroad days, book the Private Suite.
State of The Art B&B
State of the Art B&B
Thanks to the advent of Bud and Breakfast the Mary Jane loving man/woman can book a B&B style home away from home curated with cannabis in mind. We happen to think this particular choice in Ibiza, Spain is on the “high” end of the style sector.
Within walking distance to the beach, it’s stocked with cannabis and a vaporizer to use indoors while soaking in either of the two private Jacuzzi tubs or recharging in the home-theater-like living room. Best time to go is in March for the Spannabis Cup in Barcelona!
Oceania del Polonio, Uruguay
As the first country in the world to federally legalize cannabis, Uruguay’s seaside destination of Punta del Este hasn’t fully taken advantage of tourism with more 420-friendly lodging. Bud and Breakfast has though, with more than 20 options in the country, so after booking a night or a few at one of their Montevideo options.
Head east to the sleepier beach town of Oceania del Polonio for a stay at this Italian-inspired bungalow designed by architect Cosimo Venti. Grill your catch of the day on the wood-burning patio, where you’re also free to enjoy cannabis, before drifting off to sleep to the sounds of waves crashing just steps away from one of two bedrooms.
Sir Sam's Inn & Water Spa
Sir Sam’s Inn and Water Spa
As Canada’s first publicly cannabis-friendly resort in a collaboration with Cannabis Hotels, Sir Sam’s Inn & Spa sits on the shore of Eagle Lake in the Haliburton Highlands.
Offering the option to consume openly outside on patios and common areas, the adults-only playground offers adventures from kayaking, sailing, and hiking in the summer to dogsledding, skiing and snowmobiling in the winter along with a gourmet restaurant and water-focused spa.
As a notable cannabis culinary expert, executive chef Derek Simcik is available to those who have done some research on their own before booking a room at the tony Thompson Seattle (the property does not list information on its website or offer details on-property).
Through the concierge, though, Simcik is available for hire to cater a private, elevated dinner party of any size, held in an unaffiliated event space nearby. You'll enjoy a cannabis edible feast that'll make you come back to Seattle for more!
Little Bay Cabins
Little Bay Cabins
Even tough it’s arguably the tropical destination for cannabis enthusiasts, the plant itself is technically still illegal in Jamaica, and few resorts officially claim 420-friendly status (although even at the luxury properties, some staff offer herb immediately upon check-in).
Steer clear of tour operators like Hot Box Jamaica, which operates its own lodge, and head for the Little Bay Cabins outside of Negril. Here you’ll find an untouched slice of true Rasta culture so special Bob Marley himself had his beach house on this very shore. The rustic resort even offers a tour that’ll take you to visit its remaining ruins and for a swim in his personal swimming cave.
Vegas 420 Condos
What Happens in Vegas Stays in a 420 Condo, Steps From the Strip
Las Vegas, Nevada
As if “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” isn’t good enough for your next girl's weekend… why not indulge your senses a bit more and stay in a luxury condo, right off the strip, where cannabis smoking is encouraged but cigs are banned?
Those are definitely some high house rules we can get behind. Luxurious amenities include a VIP Check-in Lounge, VIP Nightlife Host, Hot Tub & Sun Deck, Year Round Pool, Palms Recharge Spa Access and of course, access to local dispensaries.
St Julien Hotel & Spa
St. Julien Hotel & Spa
Located a block away from Pearl Street, the St. Julien Hotel & Spa is Boulder’s most luxurious base camp. The independently owned, 201-room property spans a living room-style lobby, an award-winning in-house restaurant, a lively cocktail bar and expansive outdoor patio offering sweeping views.
But most impressive is the 10,000-square-foot, full-service spa and salon with a 50-foot indoor lap pool, two oversized hot tubs and a fitness center. In June, spa director Susan Hunnell launched a new series of “Colorado Bliss” treatments using an array of CBD products from CAUSE+MEDIC, any one of which is sure to complete your cannabis-infused Boulder itinerary.
The Standard Spa
The Standard Spa
Treat your feet to the Royal Chill Treatment ($175 for 60 minutes), a massage featuring a refreshing foot bath and cooling scrub, followed by a grounding reflexology ritual.
Using Lord Jones’ bestselling High CBD Formula Body Lotion and a variety of techniques, including balancing reflexology points, say goodbye to aches and pains so you can put your stilettos back on for another night out in the Magic City.
Hotel guests can also find Lord Jones’ Blood Orange CBD Gumdrops (an exclusive flavor created in partnership with The Standard) in the spa boutique and minibars in-room along with smoke-friendly accoutrements in the gift shop like Stonedware Company ceramic pipes, rolling papers, lighters and stash jars.
Los Angeles, California
PAX Labs, makers of sleek and smart vaporizers, as part of its ongoing initiative with the Dream Hollywood, has devices available for purchase at the hotel in-room and on the rooftop pool patio, The Highlight Room.
While the Dream Hollywood doesn’t offer guests cannabis flower or Era pods compatible with PAX on-site, delivery direct to your chaise lounge chair is as easy as a swipe on your iPhone through statewide online ordering service, Eaze.
Nativ Hotel: First Cannabis Friendly Hotel in the U.S.
Hotel California may be a “lovely place with a lovely face” (and the first state to legalize marijuana), but Colorado’s home to the first hotel with specific accommodations and design details for smokers or as they call it, a “feast for the senses.”
Nativ Hotel—located in the LoDo (lower downtown) neighborhood of Denver—has dreamy little details like 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.
Better yet, half of the hotels 16 rooms have weed-friendly balconies (no smoking in the rooms themselves). Don’t take our word for it, ask Drake and Justin Bieber, both guests of the hotel in the past year
