Letter From the Owner: A Cordial Introduction to the Morris Burner Hotel
Hello, and welcome to the adventure that is the Morris Burner Hotel. In the essence of artistic expression, hundreds of Burners have taken an iconic 1928 four-story brick hotel in the heart of Reno and created a very, very magical place. It is much like the playa in that it changes and inspires you…
When we first walked through the door a little over a year ago, the stench was unbearable, and the dirt so deep that it seemed almost inconceivable that it could ever be clean—but now, as you walk the halls, it is like a beautiful boutique hotel, overflowing with art, music, and crazy, fun-loving Burners. It is also much more than just a hotel. It is a gathering place where you can not only meet like-minded, artistic, hard-driven Burners, but also hatch and execute art plans. You can instantly find out what is happening in Reno, sit around a burn barrel and enjoy our (your) gigantic outdoor permanent playa called the Moasis, join in on any variety of meetings, watch a movie, help prepare a family meal, or just relax. It can be calming or it can be wild; mostly, though, it is friends in a friendly place.
