When my sister Lorraine and I checked in at Atlantis in Reno we had already planned to pamper ourselves, so why not live large and get a room in the Concierge Tower?  The views of the city lights by night and sweeping vistas of the surrounding mountains by day are outstanding from these plush, larger rooms on floors 21 through 25. Tinted windows eliminate any glare, we were on top of the world. We kicked off our shoes and decided on a cocktail from the handy in room mini bar, time to relax before our spa appointment. Lorraine enjoyed a hot soak in the tub with her favorite afternoon TV show on the 20 inch HD TV in the bathroom. I curled up on my comfy bed in my pile of four pillows and rented a movie on the 42 inch HD TV with a touch of a button on the remote. This is the life. A light tap on the door was housekeeping dropping by with complimentary bottled water. We left for the spa already feeling spoiled. Upon returning from our luxurious afternoon we changed for a gourmet dinner downstairs at Bistro Napa. We spent hours there and ate until we could barely move. Good thing our lovely room was just a swipe of the room key in the glass elevator away. We returned to find our beds turned down and a yummy mint on the pillow. With all the extras these luxury accommodations are a steal starting at $145 mid week. I was never more happy to crawl between the triple sheets, beneath the fluffy duvet, and drift away to sleep.

Life rarely offers me the opportunity to sleep undisturbed until I wake on my own but black out curtains and no alarm let me play in dreamland until nearly 9:00 the next morning. Lorraine brewed us each a cup of rich in room coffee and we were off to enjoy the complimentary continental breakfast in the 25th floor concierge lounge exclusively for tower guests. Yogurt with granola and berries parfaits along with several items from the fresh fruit tray tempted us both. Light and sweet with our croissants and danishes from a nearly endless number of breakfast breads. Windows from ceiling to floor overlook the city with the mountains looming majestic in the background. It was bittersweet to head for home. I couldn’t wait to tell all of you about our excellent stay in the Concierge Tower at Atlantis but I also wished to stay where I was queen for a day. Check out these amazing amenities.
