"Meet. Eat. Play. Stay." That's the motto at Reno's "CommRow," the 16-story, 60,000 square foot complex that opened downtown in 2011 right next to the arch as the biggest little city's premier "urban adventure destination" (i.e. a "non-gaming," "non-smoking" anti-casino funpark).

Not only is the world's tallest climbing wall (164 ft.) plastered to its facade, but inside, this place is stuffed silly with a 7,000 square-foot bouldering park, two live music venues, a cabaret-themed nightclub, and eleven different food and beverage "vignettes." (A martini bar! A tequila bar! A juice bar! Oh my!).

Originally built as Fitzgerald's Hotel & Casino (whose business shuttered in 2008), the behemoth building is currently undergoing "phase two" of its happenin' rebirth -- having just announced a grand reopening as The Whitney Peak Hotel, set to open in June.

The extra $10 million of renovations should translate into the debut of approximately 200 "elegantly appointed" guest rooms featuring WiFi, large work desks, high-def flatscreen TVs and your choice of city or mountain views. As far as facilities, the press release also promises a 24-hour business center and a full-service restaurant serving complimentary breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres.

FYI -- both the climbing wall and second floor bouldering park will remain "fully operational" during the whole nip-tuck. (As for the martini and tequila bars, we hope they stay open, too)!
