It's BYOM -- bring your own marijuana -- at this pot-friendly hotel in Colorado

This could make you euphoric: Smoking is allowed at the new Hotel San Ayre in Colorado Springs, Colo. After all, it's part of the Bud+Breakfast group.

This cannabis-friendly hotel, which promises "we'll keep the bowl burning for you," is making the most of Colorado's marijuana tourism. The state's voters in 2012 OK'd Amendment 64, which allows the recreational use of pot.

Locals 21 or older may walk into a store and buy an ounce of pot, but tourists are limited to a quarter-ounce in a single transaction. And they can't take it out of the state. (Check out this Colorado Pot Guide for more information.)

The Hotel San Ayre, which opened in mid-July, and other pot-friendly hotels want folks to come and stay a while to feel comfortable while they party.

Guests here are encouraged to BYOM (bring your own marijuana) and light up in the hot tub outside or a smoking lounge inside that's furnished with couches, a TV and games. Smoking, however, isn't allowed inside guestrooms.

The hotel has seven rooms, two suites and two cottages all close to the city's historic district and the sandstone spires of Garden of the Gods Park.

Rooms outfitted with queen-sized beds cost $129 to $149, suites go for $249 to $329, and cottages cost $199 to $299.

Breakfast is included along with a 4:20 Happy Hour where hors d'oeuvres, and beer and wine are served, and guests have "the freedom to consume whatever recreational marijuana products you desire," according to the hotel's website.

The hotel is the third in the Bud+Breakfast brand. It also operates the Adagio inside a Victorian home at 1430 Race St. in Denver and Silverthorne at 358 Lagoon Lane in the town of Silverthorne.

Info: Hotel San Ayre by Bud+Breakfast, 3320 W. Colorado Ave., Colorado Springs, Colo.; (719) 632-4355
