A couple of weeks ago, Cary and I took a road trip to Reno. It was something that we had on the back burner for a long time. The weather was nice, and work had slowed down enough for us to take a few days off. The drive took around 7 hours.
We chose to stay at The Peppermill. Cary had been there before he met me, and really enjoyed it. He noted how much the City of Reno had expanded over the past 12 years or so. When he was there before, The Peppermill was out by itself. Not anymore!
The place is HUGE, like a Las Vegas casino. There was a lot of walking involved to get back and forth to our room. The facility was beautiful, and the staff was friendly and efficient.
One thing that I really liked about the hallway, besides how pretty it was, was the way that there was an entry before the room doors. Anybody walking by could not look into your room if the door was open.
Our $111.00 per night bought us 665 square feet of luxury. There was a living room, bedroom and a huge bathroom. There were three t.v.'s, a beautiful view and so much attention to detail. They didn't skimp on towels or on anything. It was really neat. Plus it was very quiet. We never heard anybody on either side of us.
You won't find a fridge or a microwave in these rooms. Don't even pick up the snacks, unless you want to buy them. There is a sensor that gives you 45 seconds to put them back down or you are charged. There is booze in their little fridge if you want to buy it. It is cheaper to bring your own though.
The Living Room:
The living room was so pretty. There were three chairs and a leather couch. I forgot to look and see if the couch was a hide-a-bed, but it probably was. There were two tables, a dresser and a thick privacy curtain dividing the bedroom from the living area. Isn't the carpet pretty too?
This room was huge. I set up camp in here. We brought a bunch of snacks, some food (the makings for PBJ sandwiches), a box of wine and some makings for cosmopolitans. When you drive, you can overpack, and I do.
See the t.v. on the wall over by the lamp?
There was also a huge tile shower, with a rainwater shower head.
We got a room on the top floor, with a view of the pool and the mountains. It was really pretty. The pool was still open, and is heated geothermally. I will do another post on it. We didn't go in, but many were enjoying it.
I will post more about The Peppermill over the next week. It was really a very nice place to stay, and if you are going to Reno, I do recommend it.
