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
The hotel I would say is average . Perfect location to everything in Reno downtown which was so convenient . The kids absolutely loved the rock climbing gym located in the hotel . We used it each day ! Though it can get expensive !
I found the reception area not so welcoming as you walk in and then go to the elevators to the room. No real lobby area . The rooms were clean but not cozy and relaxing to sleep in . Too busy for my liking !
But I would still come here for the location and the gym !!
Just walk through lobby area only, as was staying at another property in downtown area. Looks like a nice hotel, could be a possible option if returning to Reno area for visit. Staff was very professional.
I stayed at the Whitney Peak Hotel for a short early week conference (which was also held in the hotel). The space is beautiful and very posh compared to the typical budget hotels we normally stay at when travelling with my family. The staff was very friendly, the fitness center had everything I needed for my time away from my gym, and the restaurant staff was superb (as was the food). My room was much larger than some of the apartments I lived in during my college years. The bed was comfortable, I didn't hear any noise outside in the halls, nor did I hear anything outside in the streets. I felt safe, but I also only went outside to take a photo of the Reno sign.
I definitely plan to return to Reno and the Whitney Peak Hotel for a little getaway with my spouse.
Great service, clean hotel, excellent food, and we love the staff. Whitney Peak has become our family’s favorite hotel when visiting Reno/Tahoe, we have stayed there a total of 6 times and it has always been consistently perfect. There isn’t another hotel that compares especially when you’re bringing family. My daughter, who is 4, loves the rock climbing and the rooms are unique, clean and have great views of the Sierra Nevada mountains. We love Whitney Peak Hotel and wanted to take the time to write a review to show our appreciation .
We thought the hotel was great & the rooms nicely appointed, particularly for Reno. Liked that is was a short walk to the Pioneer Theater. We had a great dinner & a disastrous breakfast but that was the server’s fault not the food. The cllmbing gym is very interesting & innovative as is the whole whole hotel concept........would definitely return.
