Atlantis vs Peppermill

Going to Reno on Jan. 15 for husband's 65th birthday. We usually go to Vegas and stay at the Wynn, but convention there now makes the rooms way too expensive. I have booked the Concierge Tower at Atlantis but am questioning if made the right choice. Was in Reno once before and stayed at Peppermill Tuscany Towers and the room was beautiful. We like to gamble in evening. Like the fact that Concierge Tower has breakfast and afternoon hor dourves (what is this like?) I know this is a real toss up, but should we change to Peppermill? Thank you in advance.

Haven't been in a couple years, but in my experience the food at Atlantis was much better than the Peppermill, if that makes a difference to you. I have stayed at Atlantis many times and the Peppermill only once for four nights.

Dear I.T.- I would urge you to keep and maintain your Atlantis reservation, and stay in the Concierge Tower. I have stayed there 3 times, twice with spouse, and once with an associate for a week stay while on business in nearby Dayton. The food is available from early morning, which was good for us, since we were out the door to Dayton before 700am. The PM snacks are wonderful as well; I was able to make a meal out of just that more than once when I went to bed early.

As for the rooms- great. Ample space, nice TVs, very nice bath. Pretty tough to compare to the Wynn, since it doesn't, but nothing in Reno does. Atlantis Casino is smaller than Peppermill, the pool is no comparison, the casino is smaller, the poker room is much smaller, as is the sports book. But smaller sometimes is nicer. We still go to both, and I think one must try both to get a good feel and opinion on same. Atlantis, in my opinion, has superior restaurant choices. The buffet is far better, as is the steakhouse.

I wish you great luck and enjoyment on your trip.

I agree with Dave. We are seniors and have stayed at both casinos, but our favorite is the Atlantis. Much easier to get around and the Steakhouse and Bistro Napa are tops as far as restaurants go, along with the Oyser Bar, which has the freshest seafood I have ever tasted at very reasonable prices. Also very friendly atmosphere and employees go out of their way to accommodate you.

Thank you both for the quick replies. I appreciate you taking the time to answer. Can you tell me if the Peppermill is within walking distance to Atlantis? We enjoy walking, but the cold may be too much for us who are used to So. Cal. weather.

The Atlantis is a little over 1/2 mile south of Peppermill. I would not walk that far in the cold, but that's me.

The walk is not that bad, if the sun is out, you walk on the east side of VA St, and the wind is not blowing.

Yes, the Atlantis is generally better for food, but Chi and Romanza are top-notch at the Pepp. The Pepp's coffee shop is slightly better, as well, IMO.

We won't have a car. Will a cab go that short distance or is there bus service?
