Atlantis Casino Resort Spa - The Real Deal :
The Atlantis Casino in Reno is a really nice homey place to gamble. It's not over the top psychedelic like the Peppermill and it's much less frumpy than a lot of the casinos downtown. Its flashy, its a little gaudy, but hey... that's what we're looking for eh? The Atlantis is consistently voted in the top tier of Reno resort/gambling joints. The only drawback is that there isn't much nearby, the Peppermill is a bit of a walk, but other than that, you gotta get a cab. Vegas Heads: Think "Rio" before the Palms showed up.
Location of Atlantis Casino Resort Spa:
Atlantic Casino Resort and Spa is located in central Reno, just west of the airport and south of the Peppermill. Atlantis is the southernmost "big" joint on Virginia Street Strip... definitely worth the travel time to check it out.

The Rooms at Atlantis Casino Resort Spa
If you don't mind the sea theme of the rooms, Atlantis offers up a wide range of choices for rooms. From the motel style option to the butler-attended players suites. Of course, you have to be someone special just to get the option of booking the penthouse, but the one tier-down Concierge Tower rooms are available to all for about 2 bills. No butler, but you get an in-room coffee maker and access to the 'Concierge Lounge', where you can enjoy your included continental breakfast and the big screen tv.

Grand Penthouse (Concierge Tower) - the top tier of Atlantis' offerings feature flat screen TV's, jacuzzi spa with gorgeous view, wet bars, gold bathroom fixtures, king size beds and butler service. These are some of the best rooms in Reno.
Concierge Tower Standard - small rooms with bamboo furniture and very busy room decorations. No flat panel tvs yet.
Royal Dolphin Standard - these are very pretty rooms featuring dark cherry wood furniture, headboards and armoires. These are the ones you want if you don't have the loot for the penthouse suites.
