Atlantis Casino Resort Spa

Reno, NV

atlantis_new_ext_HRMoving west from the forest green of Connecticut we arrive at the pride of “The Biggest Little City in the World,” Reno, Nevada.  Like its Vegas counterpart Reno never closes, yet it offers a palpably welcoming atmosphere—and just as much fun and excitement.  Reno is also the home of another of the best gaming properties in the US, the Atlantis Resort Casino & Spa.

Delightful with a touch of whimsy thrown in for good measure, the Atlantis boasts a broad appeal with exquisite accommodations and an attention to detail unmatched in northern Nevada.  It is for this adherence to excellence across the property that Atlantis has been honored with the distinguished AAA Four Diamond award—a designation given to less than five percent of the nearly 31,000 properties approved by the AAA.

Designed to inspire, their guest rooms—the newest in Reno—are bright and open, featuring distinctive décor with contemporary furnishings for the ultimate in comfort. Oversized windows fill the room with natural light and showcase stunning views of the city below or the nearby mountains. For just a little bit more, consider upgrading to Reno’s only concierge hotel tower and treat yourself to VIP check-in, butler service and an exclusive lounge serving complimentary continental breakfast and afternoon hors d’oeuvres.

Over on the gaming side of things, Atlantis prides itself on being a “player’s paradise” and we find it difficult to disagree. Atlantis offers a dynamic casino floor with ample room, ample games, and some of the loosest slots anywhere.  Spread out across the 60,000-square foot casino floor, they offer over 1,500 slot machines—including the hottest new games (in some cases, their first appearance in the region) as well as Reno’s only casino-wide progressive jackpot game, Crazy Money. If you’re not into slots, rest assured, you won’t have far to look for the tables.  Get into the action with blackjack, pai gow, baccarat, craps, roulette and more.  There’s also keno, a fantastic race and sports book, and a smoke-free poker room for all you hold’em fans.
