Reno’s First Non-Smoking, Non-Gaming Hotel Now Part of Nation’s Largest Point-Based Loyalty Program for Independent Hotels
Reno, NV – January 21, 2015 – Whitney Peak Hotel, a luxury hotel located in downtown Reno, announced a partnership with Stash Hotel Rewards, the largest point-based rewards program for independent hotels in the U.S. As a result of this new partnership, travelers can now earn Stash points at the first non-smoking, non-gaming hotel in the city.
“As an independent hotel surrounded by chains it was important that we find a way to stand out,” said Niki Gross, Managing Director at Whitney Peak Hotel. “When we discovered Stash, we knew it was the perfect fit. It provides us with a tool to reward guests, build awareness, and compete against the chains.”
Featuring breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and an unparalleled downtown location, Whitney Peak is a refreshing new option for travelers visiting Reno. Designed to bring the best of the outdoors in, the Whitney Peak experience focuses on health, local food and heritage, and quality entertainment. After settling in to warm and inviting accommodations, guests can explore all of the onsite offerings including Heritage Restaurant, led by acclaimed chef Mark Estee, Cargo, Reno’s preeminent live concert venue, and BaseCamp, a 7,000-square-foot indoor bouldering park.
“If you’re looking for a unique Reno experience, Whitney Peak is it,” said Jeff Low, Founder and CEO of Stash. “A nature-inspired hotel with the world’s tallest climbing wall; a concert hall showcasing R&B, bluegrass, and rock bands; and a strict no-gaming policy—this is Reno, unplugged.”
