As its name suggests, Atlantis Casino Resort Spa takes some of its design inspiration from the lost city of Atlantis. There are fountains, tumbled columns, island colors (but never garishly deployed), and marking the entrance to the property, a pair of monumental piers with braziers that are lighted on certain evenings and to denote special occasions.
That said, in keeping with the property’s recent (and ongoing) $100 million redesign and upgrade, the Atlantis is sporting a cleaner, more stylish, more modern look. This is reflected in ways large and small: in rooms and suites with custom fixtures, in a spa built using more than 100 types of stone, in whimsical carpets, in a sleek boardroom fitted with the latest electronics, in new stone pillars edged in Michelangelo marble, in 13-foot-high poolside cabanas, in a profusion of marble that reportedly exhausted at least one quarry in Italy, in a state-of-the-art air filtration system, and in immaculate restrooms featuring stalls with hanging hooks, trays for keys or phones, and privacy doors stretching nearly to the floor.
Atlantis even offers a special golf cart to ferry guests along the sky bridge to the adjacent Reno-Sparks Convention Center. Why walk when you can ride?
