Tulalip Resort Casino’s grand scale is evident from the moment you drive past its massive orca whale fountain near the main entrance. Inside, three towering poles, carved by Tulalip tribe members, greet you near the check-in desk. In the casino, one section of soaring ceiling mimics a salmon stream, where swirls of green and blue all but conceal images of this region’s most important fish. In The Draft, the casino’s sports bar and grill, the big game is broadcast on an enormous 161-by-91 matrix of high-definition televisions.
Massive though it may be, the guest experience is intimate at the Washington resort. Whether you’re being personally escorted through the quiet, dim chambers of the T Spa, relaxing away the weekend in one of the five specialty suites or diving into a made-to-order dish from the Mongolian Grill in the Eagles Buffet, you’ll feel as though you are the resort’s most important guest.
The casino hotel provides a welcome respite from the Northwest’s chilly, gray drizzle. You can lose yourself in the slots and table games spread across 200,000 square feet of space in the casino, or unwind with a soak in the indoor Oasis Pool, with its glass atrium keeping the rain at bay. Additionally, the property’s abundance of fireplaces offers an opportunity to thaw cold extremities.
Much of the resort’s themes and amenities speak to its Northwest locale and align with the Tulalip Tribe’s identity. Artwork by tribe members and tribal artifacts adorn the walls, with small signs detailing their meaning and history. The spa offers services that draw on indigenous practices, such as the well-being bath ritual complete with aromatherapy using local scents such as juniper and lavender. And at Killer Coffee, perk up with the region’s favorite drink. Coffee beans at the café are a specialty roast designed for Tulalip Resort.
