Many of Reno’s casino hotels match Vegas for sheer spectacle. But a number of boutiques have recognized that not everyone’s here to play and have created hotels with unique amenities: think exterior climbing walls and Burning Man-inspired art. Whatever your reason for visiting, here are the best hotels in this Nevada hotspot.

Experience pure opulence at this mock-Italian casino hotel just a short drive from Reno-Tahoe International Airport. It boasts 1,621 guest rooms, 600 of which are suites that dazzle with floor-length windows, silk brocade cushions and Keurig coffee machines. The clubby casino provides games, slots and poker tables – take breaks with delightfully over-the-top dining options such as peking duck from the tapestried Chi restaurant and lobster ravioli among the Italianate columns of Romanza.

You might not think of climbing walls as a necessary hotel amenity – but after a stay at Whitney Peak, you’ll wonder how you got by without them. The exterior of the hotel sports one of the world’s tallest artificial climbing walls – at 164ft (45m) – and you’ll find a 7,000sqft (650sqm) bouldering facility inside. There’s also the Cargo Concert Hall hosting live music. But if the adrenaline gets too much, unwind with comfort food from Café Whitney, or relax in the steam room and sauna.

The light, bright minimalism of the Jesse is ideal if you’re wanting a change from over-the-top casino hotels.

Drop into the Bar at the Jesse for healthy small plates paired with an espresso or seasonal craft cocktail.

    Get into the party spirit at this quirky hotel dedicated to all things Burning Man.

Full members get access to classes such as group art lessons and drum circles, complimentary stays and early-bird booking for festival time. Individually themed rooms range from an Alice-in-Wonderland dorm to the DaVinci’s Workshop private room.
