Stayed here over the weekend during our usual weekend run to the casinos. It's a newer hotel, located totally off the main drag of the downtown area. In all my years of going to Reno, all I know is what's between the trifecta of Silver Legacy, Peppermill and the Nugget and of course all that's in between. I was pleasantly surprised how nice and even serene this part of town was.
Upon checking in, the hotel was pretty quiet, which I was surprised since the casino hotels were quite busy. Heather at the Front Desk checked me in and was quite friendly.
The room was located on the third floor facing the back of the hotel, which had a view of the hills and a small little lake to the side. While walking there, the carpets had a busy pattern to it but, I guess that makes sense since it will probably get lots of traffic over the years. The room itself was nicely furnished and had contemporary decor. Earth tones and dark woods was the pattern. There was a microwave, referigerator and coffee maker, LCD TV with gaming and PPV movies, comfy chair w/ottoman, desk with ergonomic chair, free HSIA and the most comfortable bed you'll ever sleep on, which is why I love HGI's! The bathroom was standard and spacious featuring Neutrogena amenities. During our one-night stay, it was very quiet and comfortable.
Although the hotel also had a restaurant, fitness center and indoor pool, we didn't get a chance to use it. I also noticed there was a shuttle van but, not sure where or how far it'll take you.
The location itself is great as it's located just off the 395 and is within walking distance to a gas station, restaurants and grocery store. However, my only gripe about the location is that it's quite a ways from the casinos, probably a good 10-15 minute drive door to door to the Peppermill.
Overall, this is a great hotel, nice furnishings and you'll enjoy a comfortable stay but, if you're looking to stay within the excitement of downtown Reno, be sure to have a car.
High floor room facing the back has a better view.
