After a historic and educational experience at the National Automobile Museum, it was time to head over the Whitney Peak Hotel and check in. Whitney Peak Hotel opened in spring 2014. The hotel was originally Fitzgerald’s Hotel & Casino, built in the 1970s. The spot is perfect for Whitney Peak Hotel as it is situated right on the corner of the famous Reno arch.
