We were curious to find out just who this "premier downtown hotel" might be, and after a little digging, came across this Mercury News article which names the Warwick Hotel as the bona fide "headquarters" of My 420 Tour.
We even checked with the hotel, who confirmed that indeed, this was where where cannabis club members registered for their smoke-filled weekend. In fact, as of last night, several merrymakers were still checked in at the hotel.
The 219-room Warwick recently completed a $25 million renovation, and offers modern amenities, a fitness center, and a fine dining restaurant known as Randolph's. While the hotel does indeed feature balconies overlooking Downtown Denver, the website says it is a 100% smoke-free hotel, so we're not sure if this is where any actual toking took place. However, we can think of a few people (wink wink, Miley Cirus) who would have been happy to take advantage of such an offer.
As of now, out-of-towners still can't legally buy weed in Colorado—they'll have to wait until January, when a new law will be passed allowing visitors to purchase up to 1/8oz. Until then, with its smattering of weed-friendly hotels and groundbreaking tourism company curating weed-themed itineraries and events, stoners of all ages and stripes will be making pilgrimages to Denver by the busload.
And once the smoke clears from this weekend's festivities, hopefully they'll actually be able to see the place too.
Rates at the Warwick Hotel from $199/night.
