Peppermill grows

If, like me, you enjoy the Reno Peppermill, you are in luck: there’s going to be more of it soon.

From the LV Sun:

In the works for six years, the Peppermill Hotel-Casino unveiled plans Thursday for a $230 million expansion, including a 17-story, all-suite hotel tower.

In addition to the new hotel tower with 600 rooms, the blueprint calls for retail shops, a two-story nightclub and more than doubling existing convention and exhibition space to a total of 90,000 square feet.

The casino floor will grow 14,000 square feet to a total of 94,000 square feet to accommodate 300 new slot machines and 12 new table games, Peppermill officials said at a news conference Thursday.

Also planned are a year-round pool and gardens with entertainment deck; new spa, salon and fitness center; and a parking garage with 1,600 parking spaces.

Construction is scheduled to begin next month and be completed by the fall of 2007 at the hotel-casino on South Virginia Street south of the downtown casino district.

The curved glass hotel tower with a Tuscan-themed lobby will have wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling glass to maximize views of the Sierra and Reno skyline, company officials said.

The Palace Suite will be 2,800 square feet. Upscale amenities will include large screen plasma televisions, marble bathrooms and spa tubs.

All I know is that they’d better not remodel the existing casino and public areas.
Visit the Peppermill website if you want to see a little of it–the virtual tour of the buffet gives you a taste, so to speak.

This is one area where, I think, Reno positively has Las Vegas beat. While our Peppermill is pretty cool, it’s only a coffee shop and lounge, and hardly compares to “Reno’s premier resort.”
