When you search for a place to stay for a fun Fall weekend in Reno, chances are you want a resort with impressive features, reasonable prices and a long list of accolades and awards. Atlantis Casino Resort Spa in Reno — recently named the No. 1 Casino Outside Las Vegas by USA Today Travel — fits the bill and goes beyond. The AAA Four Diamond resort is home to more than 800 guest rooms, a 30,000-square-foot spa and 60,000 square feet of casino space.
"Guests come back to stay at the Atlantis again and again due to the exceptional service and superior standards in every aspect of our resort, from the plush rooms and top-notch restaurants to exclusive gaming options and our truly stellar spa," said Kimberlee Tolkien, assistant general manager of Atlantis.
Along with a legion of repeat customers, the success of Atlantis also can be measured by official ratings and awards. These accolades range from being rated the No. 1 Reno resort on TripAdvisor to receiving the award for Best Buffet from Nevada Magazine readers.
"As far as gaming, Atlantis earned a spot on the Travel Channel's list of America's most popular casinos," said Tracie Barnthouse, the resort's publicist. "We've also won eight first place awards from the most recent poll in Casino Player Magazine, including Best Overall Gaming Resort."
Atlantis is proud of its award recognition in the restaurant arena as well. For starters, the Atlantis Steakhouse maintains a AAA Four Diamond status and has been rated the No. 1 Reno restaurant on TripAdvisor — followed by another Atlantis restaurant, Bistro Napa, in the No. 2 spot. In addition, both Bistro Napa and Atlantis Steakhouse have repeatedly earned the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.
Atlantis offers eight restaurants, from fine dining to casual, satisfying every palate.
"From the superb sandwiches and cheesecake at Manhattan Deli to the fresh seafood at Sky Terrace Oyster and Sushi Bar, all of Atlantis' restaurants are known for their consistently delicious dishes, and superior guest service," Tolkien said.
In fact, Casino Player Magazine, a publication geared toward casino guests, awarded Atlantis 11 first-place awards in its Best of Dining and Entertainment Awards. Aside from the Best Buffet award for Toucan Charlie's Buffet & Grille, Atlantis also won for Best Overall Service and Best Variety of Restaurants.
"As for accommodations, Atlantis offers comfortable and well-appointed guest rooms, all of which have been upgraded within the last few years to include sophisticated furnishings and Sealy pillow top mattresses," Tolkien said.
Atlantis also offers Reno's only exclusive Concierge Tower, with VIP check-in, available butler service, custom furnishings, business services and a special guest lounge on the 25th floor. This year, the Concierge Tower was a Silver Badge Winner in the Best Hotel Awards from U.S. News & World Report.
Last but not least, the accolades for Atlantis can be found in Spa Atlantis, which was named one of the Top 10 Casino Spas in the World by SpaFinder Wellness and Best Spa by Casino Player Magazine.
