Smokey Silver Legacy

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 18, 2012

Silver Legacy is fun. It feels like a village, and there is a lot to see and do. My only complaint is the air quality. I could smell smoke in my non-smoking room at night. I had to go take a walk outside to clear my head. It detracted from the otherwise very nice hotel resort.

A Bit Disappointing

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 25, 2008

We arrived at the Silver Legacy about 6:00 p.m. on a Saturday evening. We felt lucky when we found a parking place in their garage after traveling up eight stories of jammed packed parking stalls. We had to stalk some poor souls who were heading to their car in order to accomplish this task. The check in was painless, however, we were not impressed with the room. It was smaller than one would expect. It had a table with only one chair.

The room had two queen beds that were as hard as concrete. The pillows were actually harder than the mattresses. Boulders would have been softer.

The bathroom was not laid out well with the toilet right up against a wall with the roll of paper mounted poised to bump the shoulder of anyone who sits on the commode.

The rooms did not have a coffee maker that is sometimes nice to have as an option.

The air from the hearer and air conditioner did smell like cigarette smoke, likely due to mixed circulation with smoking rooms or the casino.

The TV remote controller was missing when we checked in. When we called the hotel operator and explained the situation she called a TV technician to the room who arrived fairly quickly. The technician immediately called housekeeping to bring up a controller and disappeared. Housekeeping soon delivered the wanted article. However, it did not work well. In fact, it only worked intermittently. I suspect weak batteries. So the next day, we had to request another one be brought to our room. Although they took care of the problem, I was surprised that they did not check to make sure the first one worked before bringing it to the room or that the operator had to first send a technician. One other minor irritation was a burnt out light bulb in one of the room's lamps. I suspect that such things are not always replaced when discovered by housekeeping.

The pool was closed for the season in April which is common for the location. The hot tub was open but it was pretty small and about of the size one might find in a residence. Once would think a large hotel would have one that could accommodate more guests.

I began to speculate that the Silver Legacy makes their rooms and amenities such to encourage people not to hang out in them and to gamble instead.

Checkout time is at 11:00 a.m. which is on the early side for a major hotel in a gambling town. Those who checked out Sunday at 11:00 a.m. were greeted with an enormous line of people waiting for the elevators to the garage. However, on Monday, a later checkout time of 12:00 was happily granted by the front desk upon request.

The hotel is well located on Virginia Street in Reno and within walking distance of the other major downtown casinos. They have a fair selection of restaurants and nightclubs. It is conveniently connected to the adjacent casinos of the Circus Circus and the El Dorado by bridges that span the city streets.

Although it enjoys a convenient location and is competitively priced, the hotel misses on many other areas.

They Take Care Of Their Guests

by written on January 25, 2004

I know some people who spent a week at the Silver Legacy and explain they were well taken care of... nice comps. I've never really needed hotel myself in Reno, so my experience is just gambling there. It's one of the high-end places in Reno, not so much as could be found in Las Vegas, but a very nice hotel and casino.

Unique Quality: Silver Legacy is a common sponsor of events and performances of headline acts in Reno.

Best Hotel in Reno!!!

Stepping inside the Silver Legacy is like walking into an oasis in the desert. At first it seems like any other hotel, but the Victorian theme grows on you and starts to feel like this hotel and it's moftif truly fit in Reno. When you check in, ask for the highest room you can get (I much prefer a western facing view to see the beautiful Sierra-Nevada Mountrains), you'll truly be rewarded with the veiw!! If you like seafood, don't miss the pan-roasts at Fairchilds Oyster Bar, you'll keep going back for them! Overall, this is a great hotel to relax and unwind in. All the other hotel/resorts are in walking distance, as well as the Riverwalk on the Truckee River.

Unique Quality: The rooms are very comfortable with large picture windows to enjoy the views. They only have an outdoor pool, but in the Summer, a good sized sun deck by the pool with some very nice views of the mountains. They also have a decent sized exercise area.

If you do well in the casino, treat yourself to a message. They do a very good job there!

Since this is a tourist town,...

Since this is a tourist town, there are tons of Hotels. Any of the bigger casinos are good. If you come during the week Sun.-Thurs. they are only about $25-35 a night. Weekends and holidays will easily be double that! But there are also all the major hotel chains here, so no worries. The 3 nicest hotel rooms that I've been in are The Peppermill - Silver Legacy - & The Atlantis.
