Silver Legacy, Reno, NV

Silver Legacy, which is owned by MGM Mirage and Eldorado Hotel Casino and is one of the city's newest casino hotels, brought the complete Las Vegas themed-megaresort experience to Reno.

Highlights include an 85,000 square foot casino with over 2,000 slots, a 38-story hotel tower, six restaurants including an all-you-can-eat buffet, headline entertainment, and a European-style health spa.

The theme here is Victorian-era silver mining. From the outside you will probably notice the big dome, which is a landmark on the Reno skyline. At 180 feet in diameter, this is the world's largest composite dome. Inside is a large (120 foot) automated mining machine, which is the centerpiece of Silver Legacy's casino.


The property is located in downtown Reno on Virginia Street with Circus Circus Reno to the north and Eldorado to the south. Silver Legacy is connected to both of those casinos through an inside walkway on the second floor, which expands the range of convenient dining, gaming, and lodging options essentially under one roof. For example, for families staying at the more child-friendly Circus Circus, the adults have easy access to the more upscale restaurants and entertainment found at the adjoining properties.

Hotel @ Silver Legacy Reno

The hotel has over 1,700 rooms including 145 spa suites and eight penthouse suites in three towers. The towers range from 31 to 38 floors, with the west tower, at more than 400 feet, being northern Nevada's tallest.

Standard rooms are medium sized (335 square feet), and decorated in a Victorian theme. As off Spring 2010, all rooms have been remodeled with new furniture, artwork, and lighting. Amenities included a hairdryer, iron and board, cable tv, and pay-per-view movies, but no safe or coffee maker. Wireless internet is available throughout the property.

There is also a seasonal roof top heated swimming pool (4th floor), a spa, a business center, a concierge services desk, free self parking in the garage, complimentary valet, a rental car counter, a free airport shuttle, and 50,000 square feet of meeting and convention space.

The Health Spa services include massages, excercise equipment, steam rooms, saunas, and whirlpool baths.
