Hilton has sold both their Reno and their Las Vegas properties in the last four years.

The GSR is a lot nicer than when it was the Reno Hilton five years ago.

Thank you for the correction. I had bid on a construction project some years back in Stockton, CA where Hilton owned it, but wouldn't put their name on it until the remodel was complete. I assumed GSR was a similar situation.

It should also be mentioned that the 2 highest per capita income zip codes are in Northern Nevada. Incline Village, and Verdi is very expensive, so don't brag up Vegas that much. Higher crime rates in Clark county comes with the largest population in the state to.
The Sahara was purchased and renovated to become SLS Las Vegas.

Interesting, we haven't stayed there for some time now. I used to go there a lot for work, and my wife would come in on Thursday and we would stay the weekend. I don't gamble, so I don't know if there's a difference, but our trips to Reno staying at Harrah's were always nice. Now that I live here I go downtown rarely except maybe to a movie. We did a buffet for my wife giving blood platelets at the Atlantis and it seemed very nice. I don't know where others stayed that have brought these complaints, but what I see in Reno is no different than my stay in Vegas.
