With 20,000 Square-feet of Technologically Advanced Function Space
On the cusp of its 25th anniversary, Muckleshoot Casino is setting its vision firmly on the next quarter-century to come. After starting in a humble tent, the Pacific Northwest’s largest gaming destination will soon reach a milestone when it completes the first phase of a historic reimagining of the facility.
Originally anticipated to debut in late 2021, a new opening timeline for the 18-story, the 400-room tower allows for the completion of more in-depth designs as well as programming enhancements.
“For us, a hotel is more than walls and beds. We’re constructing a resort dedicated to all the spaces in-between. The ones that will allow our guests to escape, indulge and connect,” states General Manager Conrad Granito. “To that end, we are committed to fully vetting these concepts to ensure we captivate our guests no matter where they are on the property.”
The framework for the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe’s casino of tomorrow began in March 2019 after a ceremonial groundbreaking event. The first phase of the expansion—which introduced a trio of fast-casual dining destinations and remodeled sections of the gaming floor—will culminate with the highly anticipated April 2020 opening of the Muckleshoot Events Center.
Offering 20,000 square feet of technologically advanced function space, the Muckleshoot Events Center will answer the region’s need for a modern facility that can transition seamlessly from a first-class concert venue to an expansive exhibit hall, corporate gala, joyous quinceañera, intimate wedding, and more. Reservations are already being secured by eager corporate, association and incentive planners.
The second phase of the expansion—crowned by the reveal of a full-resort experience in 2022—will include an upscale rooftop restaurant, a climate-controlled indoor pool, and accommodations featuring panoramas of Mt. Rainier as well as the Olympic mountain range. A carefully curated cultural gallery will also celebrate the history and journey of the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe.
