Located in the heart of Reno, against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Whitney Peak Hotel provides a luxury boutique hotel experience as an alternative to the pricey and mega gaming-centric hotels of Nevada. With features like the world’s tallest rock-climbing wall, an 1,100-person-capacity private music venue and an inspired farm-to-table restaurant, the hotel is a draw for families and couples alike. Interiors embrace the natural beauty of the mountains, incorporating warm hues of gold and natural wood decor, while walls are lined with local art. Guestrooms at the Whitney Peak are both modern and comfortable, starting at 350 square feet and featuring panoramic mountain views.
In the Area
There’s no shortage of gaming in this city, if that is indeed what you seek. Take a short walk to the many casinos or to Campo Restaurant located on the Riverwalk overlooking the Truckee River. Afterward, stroll down to the local bar, the Lincoln Lounge, which has more than 100 craft beers on tap. Those looking for a more family-friendly experience can go to the Live from the Arch outdoor concerts, which are hosted next to the Reno Arch. There are many museums in the area, but the National Automobile Museum is a must-see, with cars dating from the late 19th century to modern day.
How to Get There
Booked a suite at Whitney Peak because we were seeing a concert at their venue Cargo. Had never stayed before, but certainly will again. A lovely, smoke free, non-casino hotel. They are right near the heart of the downtown casinos though if that is your goal. The suite was spacious, comfortable, and well appointed. Great view of the mountains from our 16th floor room. Short walk to the River Walk and tons of restaurants. Staff is friendly and helpful. The valets, for $15 a night, are quick
After a nightmare day of bad Google Maps advice, a 50-mile dirt road in the middle of nowhere AND a flat tire, the tow-truck guy dropped me at Whitney Peak at midnight. I had called to tell them what was going on and that I would be late. The front desk person, Rachaelle, and the bellman were out front to help me in. The hotel had upgraded me to a gorgeous Club room that included a delicious breakfast in the Club lounge the next morning, and a late checkout so I could sleep in. Though I was disheveled and covered in road dust when I arrived, Whitney Peak made me feel like royalty! I can’t recommend them highly enough.
My girls friends & I went to Reno last weekend for a concert. We decided to stay at Whitney peak because it’s non-smoking. The hotel was super clean & the staff was friendly & helpful. They upgraded us because it was my girlfriends 42nd birthday. The room was fantastic w/2 separate bedrooms & a living room in the middle. The beds were super comfortable!! I’ll never stay anywhere else in Reno again!!
I stayed at the hotel for five nights while in Reno on business. Room was clean, quiet, and the staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating . The only drawback is the garage is separate from the property requires you to walk outside and down the street to get to it.
One of the last hotels left in Reno that is worth spending $250 a night for. Guest are treated like VALUED GUESTS and personalized service is the norm.
I have been staying here since they first opened; until this last Memorial day weekend 2019, I have never had a problem. Something happened that weekend that necessitated a call to the front desk.
I won't go into detail except to say that it was not related to personal safety, cleanliness, Sanitation, view, condition of the room or food service. It's not worth mentioning the issue, the response however, by management was immediate. My wife, dog and I were given another room and a $50 comp. Ensure you mention the comp if ordering RoomService.
Vanessa, a Platinum beauty with a personality to match, 7-9pm, front-desk immediately called the Mike Director of Security. He and his staff were at my room in less than 5mins. Allayed my concerns. 15mins later we were in another, better room.
You see it's service and attention to detail like this reflect not only on the hotel, but Reno in general.
Also Valet Service is out of this world, Nick a tall fellow with an Eastern Accent recommended several first rate breakfast places and helped with our luggage. It's personnel that make Whitney Peak great. I had a great time relaxing here. Of course, I will definitely return.
