The Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno has more than 1,900 rooms and suites, an 80,000-square-foot casino, a large selection of restaurants, cafés, bars and lounges, and more than 200,000 square feet of meeting space.
Many of the rooms and suites offer views of the Sierra Nevada, downtown Reno, and The Beach pool. Resort amenities also include an RV park, live entertainment with top acts from around the globe, dancing till dawn in LEX Nightclub, and an array of events, including regular casino tournaments. They also offer guests the luxury of a full-service spa and salon, fitness center with weightlifting machines and cardio equipment, and regularly scheduled group fitness classes.
Grand Sierra Resort guests can also play miniature golf, ride go-karts, and skydive at Grand Adventure Land, or enjoy FunQuest video arcade and laser tag, a 50-lane family bowling center, and Grand Sierra Cinema Movie Theater. They also offer Sierra Bay Aqua Golf; Reno’s only over-water driving range, plus the added benefit of an indoor simulated golf course that allows guests to play top golf courses like Pinehurst II, Pebble Beach, and Harbour Town without ever leaving the resort.
The casino is one of the largest casino hotels in Reno. Guests can enjoy table games, slots, video poker, a live poker room and tournaments offering prizes including cash or free play. Grand Sierra also offers live betting in the race and sportsbook and a players club where you can earn points faster than ever before.
The all-new Club Grand, the casino’s player card program, is different from many of the Reno area casinos. Most Reno casinos reward players based on “theoretical hold” of the games being played and the formulas they use often leave players guessing about their accounts. Members of Club Grand will find a straight-forward, easy to understand club with five tier levels and increasing benefits. With Club Grand, you can convert points to free play anytime, plus, you receive point multipliers every day based on your card level.
Points are easy to calculate: $1 coin-in equals one point on all slot and video reels and $2 coin-in equals one point on all video poker. One thousand points equal $1 in value that can be used for free slot play, restaurants, concerts, rooms, spa, bowling and almost anything the property has to offer.
In addition to points, players also earn comp dollars based on play. Table games, live keno and poker players earn comp dollars based on play. Use your comps for show tickets, restaurants, rooms and more.
The five tier levels and point requirements are as follows: Select (0-999), Advantage (1,000-10,000), Signature (10,001-59,999), Ultimate (60,000 and up) and Infinite (by invitation only.) Players also receive point multipliers based on their tier status: Select 1x, Advantage 2x, Signature 3x, Ultimate 4x and Infinite 5x. A complete brochure is available at the Club Grand center or can be viewed online at www.grandsierraresort.com
