New ownership of the Clarendon Hotel and Spa, a landmark Four Star boutique hotel in Central Phoenix, just announced it has become Arizona’s first cannabis friendly hotel.
Starting July 25, guests will have the opportunity to book cannabis friendly rooms by calling the hotel at 602-252-7363 or using the booking website Bud and Breakfast at www.budandbreakfast.com.
The cannabis sleeping rooms are located on the west side of the hotel property where guests can partake in edibles, flower and vape which have been purchased at a local dispensary. Cannabis flower usage is allowed in designated areas only. To shop for cannabis, the hotel will offer a car service to drive guests to a dispensary where they can also rent pipes and bongs.
“We are a cannabis friendly hotel and have a cannabis friendly event company that is elevating and educating the community about cannabis,” states Daron Brotherton, VP Operations.
The only difference guests would notice in the cannabis rooms is that each will contain a ‘scrubber,’ which recirculates the air to keep things fresh. Between guests, a more powerful cleaner is brought in for a deeper clean of the environment. There is no cigarette smoking in any of the hotel rooms.
Chef Derek Upton, known as The Arizona Cannabis Chef, was featured on Netflix’s Cooked with Cannabis and Food Network’s first ever Chopped 420. He is available to provide in-room cannabis infused dinners and guests can also register for his Elevated Under the Stars, an intimate dinner party featuring a cannabis infused 6 course fine dining experience atop the Skydeck. During the heat of the summer months, the location is at a private off-site indoor venue.
