There’s a hotel in Reno that has a 164-foot outdoor climbing wall soaring above the Reno Arch on the corner of Virginia Street and Commercial Row. Not what you’d expect in a city packed with casino resorts and sports bars. But that’s what the Whitney Peak Hotel does: it shatters stereotypes. Instead of catering to a gambling crowd, it provides a refuge for outdoor enthusiasts and business travelers passing through.
I stayed at the hotel during a recent trip to the city and found it to be a comprehensive play on both adventure and comfort — a welcome change from the norm in a state where the air in hotels tends to be as toxic as a freeway during rush hour.
We hope you love the Whitney Peak Hotel! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay. Listed prices are accurate as of the time of publication.
