Why We Love Weekday Travel (And You Should, Too!)

Posted by Alex D'Antonio on Dec 13, 2016 2:09:56 PM

When it comes to getting the most out of a travel experience, timing is everything. That’s why we love weekday travel. Avoiding the weekends often translates to less crowds, less traffic, lower rates, and greater access to a destination’s best offerings. What’s not to love?

Room Deals & Upgrades

  • More bang for your buck. At Grand Sierra Resort, weekday travelers benefit from lower room rates and greater availability of premium rooms and upgrades. Weekday travelers also enjoy a more intimate experience with shorter lines and greater access to in-demand restaurants, activities, and events.
  • The more the merrier. Need even more reasons to travel midweek? Multiply the comfort benefit and cost savings when you’re traveling with kids or grandkids. Not only do you get more value for your money, but the enjoyment factor skyrockets when younger travelers experience a seamless trip, great entertainment, and shorter lines.  
  • Only the best. Enjoy the best of GSR’s amenities when you score a great midweek room rate in one of our luxurious rooms.  Remember we’ve been named the “Best Hotel” in Reno by Casino Player Magazine three years in a row.

ng and Nightlife

  • Dance the evening away. Meet new friends, or catch up with the crowd at LEX Lounge,  where sophistication meets comfort. Thursday from 5:00pm – 8:00pm, LEX kicks off the weekend early with live music, $5 cocktails, specialty drinks for $7, and $8 appetizers from Charlie Palmer Steak.
  • Get there early. Don’t be late for exclusive weekday (Monday-Friday) dining deals at Charlie Palmer (5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.) Leave enough time for a second round from the enticing $5 happy hour menu. Select from sommelier daily specials, handcrafted cocktails like Mr. Palmer’s Negroni, award-winning ales, and unforgettable happy hour bites like lobster-stuffed deviled eggs, bacon wrapped dates, and house ground beef sliders.
  • Elevate your experience. Join us for Wine Wednesdays at Reserve Wine Bar from 5-7 p.m. Complimentary tastings and wine talks from some of the country’s leading vintners as well as Reserve Wine Bar’s own sommelier. The more you know, the better it tastes.

  • Calling all ages.  Multiply the fun (and savings!) at Fun Quest, GSR’s massive video arcade outfitted with 9,000 square feet of dedicated laser tag space. Gear up Monday through Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for unlimited games at Laser Tag Happy Hour. Only $15 per person.  
  • It’s a strike! The weekday fun never stops at GSR Bowling Center. Get your game on for 25¢ Monday nights, Red head Pin $2 Tuesdays, Let ‘Er Rip Wednesdays, and Thursday Ladies “Stop Light” Party. Enjoy great food and drink specials all week long. Night owls enjoy blacklight weekday bowling specials from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m.
  • On the big screen. The Grand Sierra Cinema hosts both Hollywood hits and independent art films, all with an eye for family entertainment. Before the lights dim, enjoy the full-service snack bar and state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment. Go ahead… spoil yourself with free popcorn refills. At only $4 a pop for every seat, every day and every screening, you simply can’t go wrong.
