The Clarendon Hotel and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona is dedicating a wing of its hotel for cannabis consuming guests and billing itself as the state’s first “cannabis-friendly hotel,” 3 TV/CBS 5 reports. Cannabis-friendly rooms each contain a ‘scrubber,’ which recirculates air, and between guests, a more powerful cleaner is brought in for a deeper clean.
Tobacco smoking remains prohibited.

The hotel is also hosting a six-course dinner with cannabis-infused cuisine tonight—the hotel’s first such event. Chef Derek Upton, known as the Arizona Cannabis Chef, is also available to provide in-room cannabis-infused dinners for hotel guests. The hotel also offers car service for rides to and from a dispensary and pipe and bong rentals.
In Arizona, there are three listings on BudandBreakfast.com—a site that helps tourists to book cannabis-friendly accommodations. The Clarendon Hotel and Spa is listed alongside Wow Arizona, based in Tucson which bills itself as a “cannabis-friendly environment in a nature preserve” that provides cannabis; and the BTC Lofts, which is located in Bisbee.
Arizona was the quickest state to allow legalized sales following voter approval. The reforms passed during the 2020 general election and sales commenced about two months later.
