Located between Seattle and Vancouver, British Columbia, Tulalip Resort Casino sits on beautiful, hard-to-miss property with fountains and leaping orcas welcoming guests.

Director of Sales and Hotel Operations Tracy Banfield says the staff works diligently to keep Tulalip the top resort casino in the Pacific Northwest by continuously improving the property and offerings.

“We completed a full guest room renovation in April 2017 and just finished a complete renovation of our meeting space last month,” she says. “The resort’s eighth restaurant, Tula Bene, just opened, featuring Italian and steakhouse cuisines. We will also be opening a second property one mile to the south of our current location in 2020, featuring another exciting casino with dining, entertainment and a new hotel.”

Tulalip is a gem in the consolidated borough of Quil Ceda Village, which was established in 2001 by the Tulalip tribes. It’s become a hub of shopping, entertainment and eateries in northern Snohomish County, with the Hibulb Cultural Center & Natural History Preserve, Cabela’s and Seattle Premium Outlets close by.

“We are proud to showcase our own tribal artists throughout our property with Coast Salish-style artwork including prints, woodcarvings, baskets, clothing and jewelry,” Banfield says.

The award-winning, AAA Four Diamond resort includes 192,000 square feet of gaming, a luxury hotel featuring 370 guest rooms and suites, 30,000 square feet of premier meeting and convention space, the full-service T Spa, the intimate Canoes Cabaret; and a 3,000-seat outdoor amphitheater.

“What we provide to our customers is an experience of impeccable service at a premier destination with luxurious accommodations, award-winning dining, a rejuvenating spa and casino excitement—all in one location with an abundant amount of unique activities nearby,” Banfield says.
