Snoqualmie Casino is located only about 45
minutes (25 miles) east of the Seattle metropolitan area. It’s nestled in a mountain valley
in what is arguably the most scenically beautiful part
of the Washington State Parks system—the North Cascades
Mountains. Even if you’re going to the Snoqualmie
Casino and Resort because of its Vegas-quality shows and
cabarets, exciting nightlife, great dining, and multitude
of gaming options, you’ll be enchanted by the region’s
stunning natural surroundings.
There’s also a wide variety of lodging choices in the area. The nearby Salish Lodge is a luxurious haven to relax after sampling the Snoqualmie Casino excitement. There are also many very nice motels, country lodges, bed and breakfast inns, and even mountain cabin rentals available. There are ski resorts to discover in the winter months and hiking trails to explore in the summer. You can visit wineries and outlet stores, and go golfing or kayaking. In fact, a visit to Snoqualmie Casino Washington gives you access to some of the best attractions in the Pacific Northwest.
Snoqualmie Casino and Resort is, like many gaming venues throughout the United States, a Native American business venture. It’s operated by the Snoqualmie Tribes, who call themselves the “People of the Moon,” based on their creation story. The small Snoqualimie tribe was once one of the poorest in the Pacific Northwest when the idea of the casino first originated. With its plans for a future hotel/resort addition, the Snoqualmie Casino Washington adds another great attraction to be visited from Seattle and brings a new dimension of recreation to this region—not to mention more than 1,300 jobs.
In addition to its location so close to the Washington
coast and Seattle, the size and scope of the resort
adds to its appeal. The main building of Snoqualmie Casino
is an astounding 170,000 spacious square feet graced with
beautiful woodwork, opulent polished granite, and 60-foot
high ceilings with exposed beams. There are 1,700 slot
machines, an eight-table poker room, and 50 tables offering
blackjack, roulette, baccarat, craps, and fortune pai.
This is gaming on a grand, Las
Vegas scale, and the Snoqualmie Casino and Resort
even markets itself as “Sno Vegas.” And speaking
of snow, don"t forget the ski resorts that are nearby.
All Snoqualmie Casino restaurants are nonsmoking. Smoking
is allowed in much of the gaming venue facility, but it
contains several designated nonsmoking areas serviced
by an elaborate ventilation system. There is a huge nonsmoking
slots area and nonsmoking poker room.
Since driving is the main transportation to ge here, you'll have no trouble parking your vehicle. Support facilities for the Snoqualmie Casino Washington include a 1,000-vehicle parking garage (with 400 spaces for valet parking), a 1,000-vehicle parking lot and shops offering casino souvenirs, retail merchandise, and handcrafts made by the North Cascades tribal members.
Among the things to do here, of course, is dining and Snoqualmie Casino offers five restaurants, not including its stylish cigar bar. The restaurants range from the quick and informal to the authentic Asian food to a specialty coffee bar with European pastries. Fine gourmet dining with international and Pacific Northwest cuisine is also available, serving vintages from local wineries and around the world. These dining options rival those of the finest Seattle hotels and restaurants.
Snoqualmie Casino and Resort also means Las Vegas-style entertainment. Sno Club is a classic intimate lounge with both DJs and live entertainment and a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass providing a spectacular view of Mount Si. The Grand Ballroom boasts 11,000 square feet and will be one of the premiere Washington State concert & sports venues, hosting events such as international poker tournaments, world-class boxing, and celebrity concerts.
A visit to Snoqualmie Casino Washington brings both
the excitement of a casino and resort as well as the many
recreational attractions of the entire state.
