“Nice Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

This is a real nice place to stay But if you plan to sit and look at the Truckee River from your room like we were told SORRY! All the rooms face east & west and the river is to the south? Can't see it at all. We were not pleased about being told we could see the river from all rooms. This might be our last trip trip to Reno due to health problems and we spent alot of money on the room being on a fixed income.

Room Tip: Quite rooms off the strip no restaurants on sight pricey rooms. If on a limited income don't st...

We decided the night before New Years to go Reno. I couldn't stay at home boring old Monterey County with no firework show. We drove got there at 11 p.m. everything was booked so we had to get what we could. The Plaza on the River. Was a block walk away from the little strip that is Reno. Room was over $100.00 but come on in a sold out city for New Year's eve pretty good price. The Lobby needs to be updated. I am thinking that is how it was back in the silver rush. The room however was nice. King bed with a couch, refridgerator, microwave and safe. We were only in it to sleep but I loved the room. New year's in Reno was great the firework display was amazing down on the strip so much fun people drunk having a good time. The police were present but did not harass. We are going again this New Year's.

This hotel is older and doesn't look like much from the outside. However, our room was large and clean. Everything was as advertized. The staff was very professional and friendly.

Our room faced the city; we could see "the strip" from our window. This east facing window was blasted in the morning with the rising sun. We had to keep the heavy curtains closed to keep the sun from baking us. While we were there in late September, the day time temps still reached 90 or so. Having said that, the air conditioner and ceiling fan did a good job of keeping the room cool.

There is no gaming, bar, or restaurant at the hotel. This isn't a problem. All of those things and more are 2 short blocks away.

The only time I wasn't completely happy was when we had to wait our turn for the valet to retrieve our car. During certain periods, they really could use more than one person for this position.

Another time I may have missed not having a full kitchen and dishwaher. This time I was in Reno for a reunion and was too busy to have used it anyway. The frig, microwave and coffee pot served my needs just fine. And by the way, the "instant coffee" (coffee bags) on the seventh floor is delicious. I hope to have the opportunity to stay there again!

We are currently staying here on our first trip to Reno. The rooms are nice: good lighting, huge windows, nice furniture, large bathroom and closet, comfortable beds, comes with a fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. Kind and helpful staff, even housekeeping. The Riverwalk is just around the corner and a Methodist and a Catholic Church are very close. It's a quieter area but there is still alot to do nearby.

I stumbled on this place while traveling alone (female). I picked it because it seemed safe, clean, had secured parking and was conveniently located. I was pleasantly surprised by the antiques, spacious room, quality soap and comfortable bed. I rarely sleep well in hotels as every little noise wakes me but it was quiet enough that I never stirred. Even better there was no smoking, drinking or gaming in the hotel and since there's plenty of that in Reno it was nice to have an alternative. I especially liked being able to take a shower and make it from my room and out of the building without smelling like cigarette smoke. The rooms are dated but very clean and include lots of extras only seen in luxury hotels. Has the vibe of an old men's club with the dark wood and antiques. Definitely, different but wonderful in many ways and memorable. It's exactly what some of you are looking for.

Room Tip: The indoor pool and free 24 hr coffee are on the 7th floor - so would recommend that families with y...

Olhacker took the words out of my mouth - everything he experienced we did, too. We had several surprises. First, we got to choose floor and exposure. Second, there were a lot of antiques on every floor. Third, the furnishings in the room were excellent. Fourth, the bathroom caulking was perfect - a pet peave. The people were as great as the facility and furnishings. Excellent indoor pool and well-guarded game and table pool rooms. We were lucky to have nightly concerts from across the River Walk. If a window openned, we could have heard it from our room. We will stay at the Plaza every time we visit Reno.
