SNOQUALMIE, WA – The Snoqualmie Tribe announced that its Snoqualmie Casino has commenced a resort expansion. The multi-phase expansion will include a new hotel, expanded gaming floor, destination spa, a 2,000-seat entertainment and convention center, parking structure, and two restaurants with a third to open later.
The Snoqualmie Tribe will hire local contractors, creating new development and employment opportunities for those from the Native American community, and offering new jobs for residents of the King County area. From construction through completion, as the Snoqualmie Valley’s largest employer, the Snoqualmie Tribe will bring an estimated 500 new job opportunities to the region.
While guests of the Snoqualmie Casino’s future expansion will see and experience new upscale amenities, they will also notice subtle details inspired by Snoqualmie culture. From the modern slant roof hotel design representing the longhouses of the Snoqualmie Tribe’s ancestors to the carefully chosen artwork placed throughout the resort, guests will enjoy state-of-the-art comfort alongside a gentle homage to the tribe.
“Through the hard work and resilience of our elders, the Snoqualmie Tribe regained its recognition in 1999,” said Snoqualmie Tribe Chairman Robert de los Angeles. “With our sovereignty recognized, we have continued to strengthen and preserve our cultural traditions, protecting our sacred places, healing our ancestral lands, and establishing enterprises that allow our tribe to provide our families with education, health care, and housing while also giving back to the community. This next period of growth at the Snoqualmie Casino allows us to continue advancing those goals.”
Since opening to the public in 2008 and becoming known as “Seattle’s Closest Casino,” Snoqualmie Casino continues to receive regional and national recognition for its commitment to guest experience, community impact, and workplace excellence. In 2021, Snoqualmie Casino and the Snoqualmie Tribe became the first casino and first tribe to open a sportsbook and offer sports betting in Washington State.
Snoqualmie Casino plans to open its new expansion in Q4 2024.
