Reno is known as "The Biggest Little City in the World".   Reno is famous for its casinos and is second only to Las Vegas in size.   The city sits in a high desert at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  Its downtown area, (along with Sparks), occupies a valley informally known as the Truckee Meadows.

Hotel Information

The room rate is just $79.00 plus tax per night based on single or double occupancy.   For those of you who choose to arrive early or stay late, the same room rate is available for three days prior to the reunion; and a special “stay-over” rate of $139 for three days after, based on availability.  Please make your hotel reservations NOW by calling the hotel at 800-843-2427.  You may cancel up until 72 hours before arrival at no penalty.

Mention that you are with the 1st Battalion, 9th Marines Reunion to assure you are associated with our group. It is always best to make your reservation directly with the hotel and not a central hotel-chain call center as MRP has negotiated numerous amenities for you that the call centers may not be aware of. (Note: only those booking under the reunion group code are eligible for) amenities that may include free breakfast, free parking, internet, etc. Booking through another channel like disqualifies you and your party from group amenities).  You may request specific room types when you call to make your reservations (handicap accessible room, etc.).  The hotel check-in time is 3:00 PM  Please, do not expect to get into your room before then. They will ask you for a deposit or credit card number to guarantee your room reservation. The hotel is holding rooms until they sell out or July 28, 2016 whichever comes first.  If you are unable to get rooms at The Nugget, please contact our office (817-251-3551).
