Hotel with Burning Man theme opens in Reno

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Sep 2, 2014 - UPDATED: Sep 2, 2014

The Burning Man festival may be over for another year, but its spirit lives on at a new hotel in Reno, Nevada.

It's called the Morris Burner Hotel.

The owner says it's the first of its kind and it follows the principles of the festival like "leave no trace," "inclusion" and "participation."

There's also a strict no drug policy.

Each room also has an art theme including the Southwest, Princess Pony and Alice in Wonderland rooms.

"I was in love with it the first time I walked in the door. It's lots of weird things: Art projects, very burner-esque, a little strange," says hotel guest Bruce Anderson of Santa Barbara, California.

The owner plans to give hotel membership to "Burners" (as Burning Man fans are called), but visitors are still welcome to participate in events and art projects.
