I dont know IF thats why. But, very near to Harrahs downtown Reno is Eldorado. I havent been in awhile... Eldorado, Silver Legacy, Circus Circus all under one roof. Dont know if CET acquiring all three, just Eldorado..... Nicest places in town reportedly Peppermill , Atlantis. Hilton by convention center converted to Grand Sierra a decade ago. I vaguely recall an attempt to open a small Italian-themed upscale resort on the river long ago.... Reno's always been a bit confusing to me... There are times, places, it seems like it has so much potential. There have been elements of my visits Ive really enjoyed. Its been noted for growth bursts, booms. Maybe its image, or old-time forces... but there seems to be something that always drags it back towards "tacky." I suspect California snobbery about Tahoe, and ugly-Nevada-sister of Las Vegas are all contributors.
