Welcome to the NASA ROSES Western States ET Workshop in Reno, NV!

Whitney Peak Hotel

Welcome to the Whitney Peak Hotel - a new, landmark property that caters to those looking for that "extra something" in their hospitality experience. Whitney Peak is Reno's first and only non-gamingnon-smokingindependent hotel. We aren't bound by the rules and standards that can make branded properties a little...stale. We are centrally located; just two blocks from the beautiful Truckee River Walk and adjacent to the historic Reno Arch. Looking to play in Tahoe as well? We are a short and scenic 45-minute-drive to the world class playground that is Lake Tahoe! Hotels in Reno | Best Reno Hotels | Non-smoking Reno Hotels | Pet friendly hotels Reno | Best Reno NV Hotels 

Featuring 310 guest rooms with panoramic views of the Sierra's, our accommodations are a relaxing spot to call your own.

Hotel amenities include Roundabout Grill - featuring chef-inspired comfort food, Cargo Concert Hall - Reno's best live concert venue and BaseCamp Climbing Gym - our 7,000 sq/ft indoor bouldering park as well as the Guinness Book of World Records "World's Tallest Climbing Wall" (coming in at 164').

You deserve a hotel as unique as you are! At Whitney Peak, customizing experiences is our passion and your requests are an invitation for us to excel. Like that time we "won the internet" by going all out for a unique guest request? Or that other time we took on the request of filling a bathtub with ice cold beers... our staff lives for these opportunities. Combine our willingness to go the extra mile with bold, playful design, award-winning dining + unique amenities and you have the ultimate independent hotel stay.

Guest rooms at the Whitney Peak Hotel are a place to call your own.

With décor inspired by the beauty of the Sierra's and those that call her their playground, Whitney Peak is a unique, comfortable space to kick up your feet, take in the mountains and relax. Cabin-in-the-woods accents contrast a mod, statement style design where small-town charm meets big-city style.

Our accommodations come with either two double queen beds or one King size bed, 40” HD flat-panel Samsung TVs, a sitting area, working desk and complimentary high-speed wireless internet.

We also feature Zero Percent Collection bath amenities; a luxe, earth-friendly formulation named for its zero sulfates, parabens, phthalates and artificial colors. At Whitney Peak, we try to reduce our environmental footprint as much as possible... our shampoo, conditioner and body washes are all found in refillable dispensers, located in each room's shower.

Handicap-accessible and single King guest rooms are available on request.
