Reno has come a long way since my parents took me to Circus Circus back in the ’80s. Sure there’s still a mix of grit and glitter, but one of the shinning additions since those years is the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa.
Taking a cue from the successful, all-inclusive resort hotels and casinos that have transformed Vegas over recent decades, the Atlantis ups the ante with a winning design, luxury rooms, first-class dining and a celebrated spa.
Recommended Resort: Atlantis Casino Resort Spa Reno. With the best of the city at your doorsteps and the majestic Sierra Nevada as a backdrop, the Atlantis is the best way to do Reno—in comfort, convenience and style.
Boasting a room for all kinds of travelers, from the family adventurers to the high rollers, the resort does have many accommodation options to pick from. The Royal Dolphin Tower rooms have 9-foot ceilings and more living space. The new Spa Escape rooms on the spa floor are perfect for guests with relaxation on their minds. Reno’s only Concierge Tower features rooms with a new design, plenty of space, great amenities and even better views.
But don’t expect to stay in your room all day and night with all the fantastic entertainment on the property. Of course the casino is a big draw for gamblers, but if the tables aren’t your cup of tea, check out the revolving roster of concerts and cabaret or sit down with a beer at the sports bar.
Check In: 3800 S. Virginia Street in Reno. 800-723-6500, atlantiscasino.com.
Check Out: The dining options are abundant at Atlantis. The Bistro Napa offers fresh Californian fare with parings of perfect wines. The Atlantis Steakhouse serves up the steaks and chops for the carnivores in the house. Seafood lovers will cherish both the Sushi Bar and Oyster Bar high on the Sky Terrace. Then there are casual offerings to fill your dining needs, like the Manhattan Deli & Restaurant, Toucan Charlie’s Buffet and Grille, and Café Alfresco.
Don’t Miss: The Spa. The journey begins with not one, but three lounge options. The first is the Aqua Spa Lounge with water features in a variety of temperatures to refresh the muscles. Next up the Lanconium Lounge, where heat mixes with mild temperatures and Lanconium stimulates circulation, purifies and detoxifies the body, while reducing stress, your heartbeat is stimulated and blood pressure regulated. Finally, the Brine Inhalation Light Therapy Lounge surrounds you in with light illusions and brings the climate of the ocean shore. And you haven’t even gotten to your treatment yet, which we promise will be memorable.
