    My Trip Report

    Heading out from work right now..heading for Reno for the weekend for a Slot Tourney at Grand Sierra Resort.
    Have to go through Lake Tahoe on the way up, as we have $205 free play to pickup.
    Then at GSR we have $275.
    Here we go!

    2 hour commute? I thought that was only in the north east.

    I know that this is somewhat off topic, but since you seem to know a lot about the place, is the GSR somewhere where you'd recommend staying and playing in Reno? I'm going to Reno for a conference later in the year, so I'd like your opinion on whether that would be a good place for me to stay at the time.

    I look forward to your report to find out more as well!

    GSR has the largest standard ROH rooms in Reno..the casino is quite large with a ton of variety...they have a good buffet and a lot of different food choices on property (Johnny Rockets, Port of Subs, Round Table Pizza)
    It's our favorite place.

    Thanks for your input - I'd been leaning toward it anyway from what I read online, so I'll likely stay there in the fall.

    Hope you had a great trip!
