CAI Investments to Reopen Former Harrah's East Tower as Reno Suites

by Mike Van Houten / Dec 6, 2020

CAI Investments will be opening the east tower of their multi-block property as 'Reno Suites' according to a new sign on the building and a new verified listing on

It will be temporary until CAI Investments is ready to remodel the east tower into apartments. 

Here's their official web site

Their web site seems to be set up to book individual nights or any length of time. Their web site states there are no resort fees associated with booking a room. 

I'm not sure yet where they're going with this business model, but it's nice to see the tower opening back up. On their official web site it seems you can book individual nights, but on their listing, rates are listed as monthly. 

Their web site seems to be set up to market to tourists, with a 'nearby attractions' page and link to Amtrak. 

The west side of the property, west of Center Street, is still being planned as 500+ apartments with full kitchens, and balconies for each unit. 

No word on when 'Reno Suites' is opening up yet, or if they'll be marketing and pushing daily rates or monthly rates. 

The hotel rooms themselves are pretty much unchanged from when Harrah's was open. Some rooms have a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave.

    There was no " East Harrah's". Get someone to edit your articles. It was the Harrah's East Tower.

    Hey Quint. Maybe don’t read the free blog. That will solve your issue with it. And who gives a crap?

    I think it is good news to have that tower reopened for visitor lodging. If Reno is to recapture convention and trade show business, the area needs more hotel rooms. This is a good thing for the downtown Virginia Street area. I hope the new owners renovated the elevators, along with whatever remodeling was done.
