Boutique hotel with a luxe feel nestled between the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the buzzing bright lights of Reno

The Lowdown

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.

Best place to stay

I used to live in Reno and this is the only place I’ll stay. It’s clean, comfortable, eco friendly, and in a great location (close to good food and endless alcohol). Reno does have its share of homeless and they hang out in the area, but I’ve never felt unsafe. It’s a bit more pricey but if you need a hotel that’s smoke free, this is it. There are so many more perks to staying here but you should check it out and judge for yourself. It’s worth it!

Very nice hotel

The Whitney Peak Hotel is a gem in the heart of downtown Reno. If you are looking for a place to stay that has no casino and is smoke free, this is it. The room I had was spacious, and the king size bed is very comfortable. There were robes and slippers as well as a coffee maker, refrigerator and safe in the room. I have found my new go to hotel in Reno. It is perfect.

The King suite is a must stay

I got the King suite for me and my girl. Ordered the romance package which bought the water works from her. Big thank you to Mele Lotuleleli who arranged all this and was very welcoming before I even arrived. The front desk was very professional and the lounge was a nice touch and def helped with the hangover I had the next day.
