For many decades following its opening in 1929, the Hotel Nevada was a favorite stop-over for the rich and famous of Hollywood as they traveled between California and Sun Valley, Idaho. A dozen rooms at the hotel reflect the luxury and glamour of this bygone era. Ask to stay in the Gary Cooper or Mickey Rooney room! There are also rooms dedicated to Charlie Rich, Jimmy Stewart, Wayne Newton, Ann Rutherford, and others.
The six-story hotel was the tallest building in Nevada when it opened, surpassing The Mizpah in Tonopah. Today that means you'll enjoy some of the best views Ely has to offer. The hotel is located on the west end of downtown Ely, allowing for easy walking to nearby shops, the Ely Art Bank, bars, restaurants, and neon signs after dark. Or just stay put at the Hotel Nevada.
The restaurant is open 24 hours a day and they brew Starbucks coffee. The casino offers live blackjack and hold 'em poker tables, along with the friendliest dealers in town.
