MARCH OF THE BOUTIQUES: The smaller and more specialized stay has been flowering around Las Vegas for some time now, and no longer is it enough simply to be a "boutique hotel" in the land of mega-resorts boasting 19 restaurants and 57 pools. With that in mind, we're looking at Rumor, the boutiquery that debuted last month.
SIX THINGS: Here are the initial Rumor-y adds that have caught our eye. 1) Addiction, the inn's three-meal-a-day-er, serves a créme brulee oatmeal. 2) There are on-site hammocks. 3) Rumor welcomes woofers, and even boasts a dog run (handy). 4) All rooms come with either a balcony or patio, a nice place to escape when your friend is snoring off the night. 5) There's also a communal table in Addiction. Like. 6) It's in the former St. Tropez. You're obsessed with Vegas history? We all should be.
SEVEN: It's named Rumor. Vegas hotel names are THE BEST.
EIGHT: Okay, we said "six." But eight: Micky's in West Hollywood, that Miami-Beach-chic center of gay let's-go-out-and-dance nightlife, is giving Rumor-based getaways on Fridays. Call the club for details. (And, we should add on the hotel-themed front, that Micky's now has a "hotel-inspired" happy hour on Friday afternoons called "The Lobby.")
