Tulalip Resort Casino is one of the most premier destinations in Washington state — a Las Vegas-style casino that is an easy drive from any location between Vancouver and Seattle.
The gaming options are excellent, but this luxurious resort also features gorgeous hotel rooms; an array of excellent restaurants; a world-class spa called T Spa; a beautiful indoor swimming pool; and numerous entertainment venues. And did we mention the fantastic Washington state wine and cocktails?
We recently spent a weekend there, and lost track of how many times we said “WOW!”
Gorgeous Hotel Rooms
Our 24-hour visit at the hotel began by checking into one of the stunning and spacious guest rooms. Even the bathroom is roomy, with two sinks, a vanity table and a large shower with pretty red tiles.
The room features gorgeous art and styling touches that pay tribute to the Tulalip Tribes.
For example, beautifully crafted paintings and accents are above and on the bed, over the desk, on room dividers, on walls throughout the room, and in the beautifully adorned hallways.
Heritage and Skills of Coast Salish People
Everywhere we looked, we saw an inspiring expression of Tulalip life and history. The Tulalip Tribes are Coast Salish, a culture of which I am familiar after working for Musqueam, Squamish and Tswassen First Nations in my home province of British Columbia. When we stayed at Tulalip Resort, I was deeply reminded of my intense respect and admiration for the proud heritage and skills of the Coast Salish people.
So Much to Enjoy!
There are so many choices of things to do at Tulalip Resort Casino. We didn’t even have time to visit the Seattle Premium Outlets right next door. But we saw many people in the hotel lobby and in the elevators who were balancing lots of big bags full of Christmas shopping.
Instead, we hit the 200,000+-square-foot gaming floor, where Dave played table games and I tried my luck on the slots. I also booked some time at the spa, a stellar 14,000-square-foot sanctuary.
That evening we experienced a food, wine and cocktail extravaganza that generated an amazing explosion of different tastes and colors.
You will find more details about our 24-hour visit in blog posts that will be published after the holidays.
Meanwhile, we highly recommend visiting Tulalip Resort Casino — for dinner, for a day, for a weekend or longer. Check out the beautiful Tulalip Visitors’ Guide for more information.
Thank you, Lisa Severn and Allan Aquila, for making our visit so memorable.
