The Hotel Avery is a proposed boutique hotel set in a special spot along the Truckee River in historic downtown Truckee. Locals, visitors and community members will take great pride in bringing their families and friends to this beautiful and aesthetically pleasing new gathering place situated at the gateway to Truckee’s historic downtown.

Hotel Avery’s design pays homage to Truckee’s distinctive historic structures with gabled rooflines and carefully selected materials and color palette. The project will include 21 hotel rooms, five one-bedroom and four two-bedroom condos. Plans also include an upscale riverfront restaurant on the ground level featuring a warm and inviting indoor dining area with a see-through fireplace, private meeting space and outdoor dining overlooking the river.  

The Vision

Hotel Avery will bring a unique, high-quality lodging and dining option to Truckee’s vibrant historic district and new amenities for locals and visitors to enjoy. An open, landscaped pedestrian plaza and viewing area set just above the river’s edge will provide public access to the Truckee River.
