I had to go to Reno this week for a meeting at the Sierra Grand Casino. My work group decided to stay elsewhere - not at the casino. It was a great decision. Rates at the Hilton Garden Inn were in the $90 range, including a free breakfast with daily $9.95 vouchers, which included made-to-order eggs (and egg whites) any way, pancakes, and even breakfast burritos (which were mentioned only on our 5th morning)
This was a business meeting, so I was gone from 7:30am to 10:00pm all week. I was so happy to be in a smoke free lobby and quiet hotel after meeting at a casino. I was happy to see cookies for guests in the evening. I never made it to the hotel for happy hour, but they have a full bar and restaurant. I loved the breakfast choices - I had yogurt and fruit every morning, with a made-to-order omelette.
Room had free wiifi (for Hilton Rewards members, so join!!). It was a bit slow at times.
The sheets and covers were super comfy and luxurious, room cleaned and restocked each day (unlike what I heart from the people who stayed at the casino. Also unlike a casino, refridge, microwave, coffee/tea.
We stayed because we were all Hilton club members, and glad we did.
I asked and they have s free shuttle to/from airport. This can save you $20 taxi. My hotel shuttle driver was also a music DJ and regaled me with songs that had to do with my conference (planetary science). That definitely set off my week in Reno on a great note!
