The Artisan is a Las Vegas non-gaming hotel boutique and ultra-lounge. Its 64 rooms[1] are covered from floor to ceiling with eclectic art and reproductions of world-famous paintings.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

The hotel opened in 1979 as a Travelodge.[1]

Doug DaSilva purchased the hotel in late 2001 and renamed and overhauled it as 'The Artisan.'[1][3] Works by artists such as Cézanne, Chagall, Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Renoir, and Van Gogh were placed all over the property.[3] By 2004, DaSilva stated that he had spent $4 million on renovations.[4]

DaSilva experimented with entertainment options including rock music and murder mystery dinner theater, before settling on a lineup of jazz music centered on weekly appearances by keyboardist Ronnie Foster.[5][6]

DaSilva planned for The Artisan to be the first of a chain of hotels, with locations to be opened in El Paso, Memphis, and Spokane.[7][8]

In 2008, Las Vegas CityLife named the Artisan lounge as the best bar in Las Vegas.[9]

Even though the property received good reviews and had a loyal clientele,[10] it faced cash flow and maintenance problems,[11] and entered Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in December 2008.[12][13] DaSilva claimed that the bankruptcy was intended only to allow the cancellation of a contract with a hotel reservation network, so that the property could join the Ascend Collection, a high-end hotel brand created by Choice Hotels International.[14] A year later, however, the Artisan was still in bankruptcy, and it agreed to allow its mortgageholder, an affiliate of The Siegel Group, to foreclose.[15][16] The Siegel Group closed its acquisition of the property in January 2010, and began working to correct the outstanding issues.[1][16][17][18]

Siegel performed at least $1 million in renovations, and revamped the entertainment lineup to appeal to a broader range of local residents.[19][20] In May 2010, The Artisan started holding themed invite-only pool parties.[21] The Artisan also gained note for marketing a "buyout" option, allowing a patron to rent the entire property.[22][23] In 2015, the Siegel Group briefly listed the hotel for sale for $4.6 million, before deciding instead to undertake another $1-million renovation.[24]

In media[edit | edit source]

The Artisan was featured on a 2007 episode of the A&E TV show Criss Angel Mindfreak.[25] It has also appeared on the Cinemax series Sin City Diaries.[26]

In 2010, Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick celebrated Disick's birthday at the Artisan in an episode of the reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.[27][28]
