Discounts on rooms, golf and spa services are available, as are other special perks—such as free membership in the Coyote Rewards Club—for tour group members. The club offers rewards for every play on the resort’s more than 1,600 slots, video blackjack and other machines.
“Our tribal hospitality is a warm welcoming into our home,” says Dee Dee McGowan, the Coeur d'Alene Casino Resort’s tour bus manager. “We greet every group and hold a coffee and cookie reception, and we also see them off at departure with a bag of souvenirs to draw as prizes on their trip home.”
The resort has a strong regional following, as the majority of groups McGowan works with come from Canada, Montana, California and inland Washington and Oregon.
“Most groups book a year or more out,” she says. “Some will call a few months out to add more trips, and we normally are able to accommodate them.”
For visitors who fly into Spokane, Washington, the resort provides free transportation from Spokane International Airport. And with a minimum four-night stay, groups can enjoy a complimentary private charter boat cruise on Coeur d’Alene Lake.
