Atlantis Casino Resort Spa

Reno's sophisticated casino resort
Reno might be Nevada’s second city, after world-famous Las Vegas, but that doesn’t limit Atlantis Casino Resort Spa. The property takes its cues from the standards set by the best casinos in Sin City and by resorts everywhere else. Atlantis truly is a casino and a resort. Both aspects are taken seriously.

Gaming, naturally, is plentiful: slots and slot tournaments, table games, keno, a poker room, a new race and sports book, and high-limit areas stocked with nibbles and fine wines.

In the past decade, food and drink have become signature aspects of the Nevada casino experience, and Atlantis offers 10 eating and drinking establishments, a mix of fine dining restaurants, more casual spots and grab-and-go counters.

It also would be easy simply to while away the day at the 30,000-square-foot Spa Atlantis or sit by one of the pools and order ginger spritzers, vegetable wraps or garlic chicken pizza.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Service and upkeep are particular strengths of Atlantis. Staff members always seem to be dusting, arranging, polishing and making sure the bathrooms are immaculate.
  • As its name suggests, the Reno resort 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.
  • Atlantis Casino Resort Spa has 10 eating establishments, a mix of fine dining restaurants, more casual spots and grab-and-go counters to suit every craving.
  • The resort’s Four-Star Spa Atlantis encompasses a retail foyer, men’s and women’s locker rooms with cedar saunas and tea lounges, 15 treatment rooms and therapy lounges, indoor and outdoor pools, and a cardio theater and fitness center complete with yoga mats.
  • From exciting tournaments to live shows and concerts, there’s never a dull moment at this Reno resort.
Things to Know
  • Atlantis guests and Reno locals fill Bistro Napa’s bar and lounge from 4 to 6 p.m. daily for a Social Hour (OK, two) in which small plates, sliders, flatbread pizzas, wines by the glass, and cocktails (even specialty drinks and call brands) are served.
  • Atlantis even offers a special golf cart to ferry guests along the sky bridge to the adjacent Reno-Sparks Convention Center.
  • The high season for the resort is summer into fall, especially early August through September when annual events such as Hot August Nights (a classic car celebration), Great Reno Balloon Race and the National Championship Air Races and Air Show come to town.
The Rooms
  • Atlantis Casino Resort Spa offers 824 contemporary rooms and suites in four towers: Concierge, Luxury, Atrium and Dolphin.
  • Rooms and suites have either Reno city views or vistas of the Sierra Nevada mountains to the west.
  • All rooms and suites feature appealing amenities such as marble and tiled entries, full-length mirrors, vanities, original art, connectivity launch pads, Wi-Fi (included in the resort fee) and even specialty pillows from the pillow menu.
  • Rooms on the tranquil spa’s third floor are typically reserved for adults and include yoga mats and exclusive spa robes. Ask for one of the six spa rooms with a patio on the outdoor pool deck.
The Restaurants
  • The sleek, reportedly $6 million Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Atlantis Steakhouse is one of the fine-dining establishments at the Reno hotel, serving up classic cocktails, USDA Prime grade beef, seafood, and table side service.
  • Bistro Napa is part fine dining restaurant, part culinary fun house, featuring a California cuisine-inspired menu of regionally sourced seasonal and sustainable ingredients. Favorites here include wood-fired pizzas, scallops Rockefeller with saffron rice and cabernet braised boneless short ribs.
  • The Oyster Bar (try the cioppino) and all-you-can-enjoy Sushi Bar (go for the tempura shrimp Sierra roll) occupy the Sky Terrace that stretches across South Virginia Street.
  • New York-inspired Manhattan Deli features matzoh ball soup, jaw-stretching sandwiches and a ceiling sculpture based on the crown of the Statue of Liberty.
  • Toucan Charlie’s Buffet & Grille is the property’s all-you-can-enjoy joint that’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Look for a salad bar with made-to-order spinach and Caesars, classic American foods, the Asian line (including made-to-order Mongolian grill), Mexican and other Latino dishes, and a separate dessert area.
