A world-class casino and resort just wouldn't be complete without world-class activities, featuring something for everyone in the family. From golf packages (including mini golf), skiing and snowboarding, to go-kart, motorcycle or bicycle rentals, the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino have a great selection of activities for the great outdoors. Inside, you'll find a 50-lane bowling alley, cinema multiplex and a 40,000-square foot video game/parlor, game/simulator, rides and laser tag arcade that every kid (and the kid in you) can enjoy. There's also plenty of shopping, including some of Nevada's most unique boutiques, sprinkled throughout the resort. Finally, if there's something you always wanted to do – anything at all, you can always ask the Adventure Desk, who will do their best to make it happen.

Did you know?

Your support in staying at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino helps keep the conference costs down, which directly affects your registration fees. SIAM guarantees the hotel that we will fill a certain number of “room nights” (rooms per night) during the conference.  SIAM incurs penalties if too many attendees opt to stay in other hotels in the area or neglect to indicate to the hotel that they are with the SIAM conference. At this time, conference costs do not include meeting room rental. If SIAM fails to fill the contracted room block, SIAM is then charged the cost for the meeting rooms on a daily basis, along with a hefty penalty. Future registration fees could increase to cover these additional risks.


SIAM is holding a block of rooms at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino. These rooms are being held on a first-come, first-served basis at the following discounted rates. Please be aware the room block fills quickly, so we suggest you make your hotel and travel plans early.

The group rate is guaranteed until the cutoff date unless the block fills prior to that.  If there are rooms available after the cutoff date, they will be available at the best rate offered at that time.
