This hotel in downtown Reno doubled as the train station. It stood from 1879 to 1889 when it burned and was replaced by a smaller depot, without a hotel.

Source Caption: After the Great Reno Fire a new depot was built on the same site as the first. The Depot Hotel, constructed by W. R. Chamberlain, opened to the public on June 30, 1879. The three-story building was 65 feet tall, 32 feet wide, and 170 feet long and cost $25,000. It was constructed primarily of redwood and pine, and included a Mansard roof and a balcony that wrapped around the hotel on the secon...d floor. The Depot Hotel featured the latest amenities, such as a telegraph office, bar, restaurant, lavatories, water closets, fire suppression system, and fifty hotel rooms. Each room had a view of the mountains and received sunlight at some point during the day. The Depot Hotel was considered the finest “caravansary” between Omaha and San Francisco. On May 26, 1889, the Depot Hotel was lost in a fire that swept through the business district. A new depot would have to be built in its place.
