        Reno 2010 Room Rates

        Originally posted by Slick View Post
        for a variety of reasons reservations won't be open until after Jan 2010- at least at the room rate we've negotiated.

        There is a few of us that will be going to the reunion and staying in our RV's, The Hotel has a RV Park, has anyone thought of negotiating a rate for us?

                  Grand Sierra Hotel/Reno Hilton

                  I just returned from a 10 day extended stay in Reno Grand Sierra. Hotel seems friendlier than it was in 2004. My friends and I utilized one of their services. You can arrange ATV rental thru them and they provide transport to the mountains and you have all day running the trail around the Lake Tahoe area. A lot of new construction in town. Traffic was not a problem. I had driven from Ft Worth Tx to Oregon and down thru the area. If you like scenery and have the time ry US highway 50 back thru Ely Nevada to I-15 in Utah.

                                Reno Rates

                                I have made rev. at the RV Park for the Reunion.

                                Problem is the Manager Sam Wenzel does not know of any Rates. Even The Res. Manager at the hotel doesn't have anything on the Hotel Rates.

                                Need someone to get in touch with the hotel and get this straight. ( whoever Neg. the rates for the reunion).

                                Sams phone # is 775-789-2147.
