Peppermill Resort & Spa

Nevada, USA

The hotel

What started as a simple coffee lounge, opened by two friends in 1971, has evolved into one of Reno’s most spectacular destination hotels. Winning multiple awards for its gaming, dining, and entertainment, Peppermill Reno’s one of those places you could stay inside for months – if you do venture out, you’re right in the shopping and dining district, near downtown Reno, with complimentary parking if you fancy exploring beyond the city limits. Besides the 24-hour casino and Game Lab, featuring retro arcade machines, you get 2 stunning Tuscan-flavoured pools, a 3 storey spa with secret garden, complimentary WiFi, EDGE Nightclub, copious lounges and bars, and 10 restaurants. Dining experiences range from the sublime to the ridiculous (often simultaneously): think tucking into seafood under jellyfish lights, or dining on prime steaks by a virtual aquarium. Every detail is deliciously ostentatious.

We ended up here on short notice after fleeing Tahoe ahead of a snowstorm. We had a room in the Peppermill Tower. If I had to do it all over again, and I hope I will, I would stay in one of the Toscano rooms. We did appreciate having in-room coffee and a fridge. But the couch and chairs were vinyl. Ick. Begs the question...why vinyl? What goes on… Read more
We ended up here on short notice after fleeing Tahoe ahead of a snowstorm. We had a room in the Peppermill Tower. If I had to do it all over again, and I hope I will, I would stay in one of the Toscano rooms. We did appreciate having in-room coffee and a fridge. But the couch and chairs were vinyl. Ick. Begs the question...why vinyl? What goes on here? Not into it. But the view from the room overlooked the pool and had a mountain backdrop and was beautiful. Good nights sleep each night. Excellent service in the room and throughout the hotel and casino. The use of insanely large flat screens showing beautiful photos of destinations around the world is really effective. Loved it! Beautiful property. Excellent gaming. We will be back. Read less

We stayed while attending a nearby stockholders` meeting (9th floor Peppermill Tower). We only have good things to say about our time here. Peppermill staff were friendly and accommodating, our room was comfortable and clean, and we had ready access to our rental car courtesy of our Peppermill valets. For us out of towners a rental car and GPS comes in handy to explore Reno and nearby environs. For close-in drives we highly recommend Reno (proper), Virginia City, Carson City, Truckee (California) and Lake Tahoe. More adventurous (possibly overnight) excursions might include Black Rock Desert (Burning Man), Yosemite National Park, San Francisco & Sacramento CA, among others. (See visitrenotahoe.com for more details/ideas/options.) We had a great time and plan to return in 2020. Read less

Spend the day at the spa and is well worth it, you can relax enjoy the snack and finish the day with a massage, if you buy one of the massages you get access to the spa facilities, they have a pool on the second floor as well as a nail salon. great place to go and relax

Decent room service, excellent conference facilities and casino seemed decent with many smoke free areas which were nice. Bus disappointed didn't have any coke products, had to walk down the street to 7 eleven. Read less

This was my first time staying here on a layover. All of the staff I encountered from the airport to the resort staff were awesome. The room was clean and modern. The bed was comfortable. The Island Buffet had excellent food and staff. I would like to bring my wife up here when I have more time:).
