Tulalip Resort Casino 

Tulalip Resort Casino is a versatile destination—it makes a great spot for a night out, but it also has everything you need for a short getaway, an impromptu day trip, or a base for a farther-reaching Northwest adventure. If you seek ritz and glitz, this is the place for you. The casino and entertainment options are all Vegas-style bling. The hotel section is grand and luxurious, filled with natural materials, Coast Salish art, and high-end furnishings that create a soothing Northwest environment.

The quality of the services and facilities offered at Tulalip Resort Casino are consistent across the boardrooms, food, gaming, spa, pool, meeting spaces—all are exceptional.

Gambling at the Casino

As one of the largest casinos in the state, Tulalip doesn’t disappoint if you’re here to play. With 200,000 square feet of gaming space, you’ll find everything you’d expect at a casino. Gaming options include 2,200 slot machines with new options added every month, 35 tables in the table gaming area (including Blackjack, a variety of poker games from Texas Hold’em to Three- and Four-Card Poker, Baccarat, Pai Gow and more), as well as bingo. Tulalip Resort Casino pays out over $5 million in jackpots each month, too.

Food and Drink

Just like a Vegas casino, Tulalip Resort Casino features several dining establishments, ranging from casual to upscale.

On the casual end, start your day with coffee and a pastry at Killer Coffee, located both in the lobby and on the casino floor.

You’ll find the requisite coffee and pastries, but a special perk is that guests can add their favorite liqueur to any coffee. Other casual options include Cedars Café that serves breakfast (until 2 p.m.), lunch and dinner; The Draft sports bar; Eagles Buffet where you’ll find all the endless food options you’d expect at a buffet; Canoe Carvery where you can grab a quick sandwich, pizza or soup; and Blazing Paddles serves up stone-fired pizza.

If you are in the mood for seafood, Blackfish has a menu featuring everything from oysters to fresh fish, while Journeys East features dishes from several Asian countries.

Things to Do 

Whether you’re heading to this casino for a night out, a date night, or you’re staying here and want to get your party on in the evening, rest assured that you’ve got options.

The Cabaret is the casino’s main live entertainment venue and brings in everything from live music to comedy to MMA/boxing. The Orca Ballroom is another spot to check, as it’s known for touring headlining comedy shows like Amy Schumer or Ron White. During the warmer months, Tulalip Resort Casino also hosts shows at the Tulalip Amphiteater, which seats 3,000 and brings in all kinds of acts. To see what shows are coming up at the Tulalip’s events venues, check the casino’s events calendar.

In addition to the events venues, you can also explore the casino’s shops in the Salal Marketplace, relax by the indoor pool that’s situated in a garden setting and has an outdoor patio, or visit the T Spa.

T Spa, the expansive, full-service spa at the Tulalip Resort Casino, evokes the feeling of Northwest waters and forests, creating a setting for pure relaxation.

 The locker rooms have a cedar sauna, a steam room, and rainfall showers, and the treatment rooms include couples rooms and a VIP suite. The spa shop also sells bath and beauty products.

The list of services on the T Spa menu is long and varied, with treatments inspired by both Native American and global traditions. Makeup, nail care, and waxing services are available. Men can choose from T Spa's selection of "Gentleman's Retreats."

And if you really love shopping, just next door to the casino are the Seattle Premium Outlets, where you’ll find a full array of upscale outlets.

Lodging

Tulalip Resort Casino is as much a resort as it is a casino (as you might guess from the name). Décor is inspired by the traditions and culture of the Tulalip Tribes, and yet also features plenty of modern appeal. The rooms at this AAA-Four-Diamond-rated luxury resort were renovated top to bottom in 2016, and now include some of the finer things in life like high end artwork and designer glass tile, polished stone surfaces, in-room refrigerators, LED lamps, fog-free mirrors, USB power outlets, 55-inch smart TVs and high-speed Wi-Fi.

Even the smallest room is 500 square feet or more, but range up from there to suites that top out at 2,500 square feet! A number of luxurious suites are available, each with unique touches, artwork, views of the surrounding mountains and atmospheres, if you want to go all out for your stay.
