Twenty-four years after opening a casino which would set the standard for gaming in Washington State, the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe will once again redefine expectations with the addition of a luxury resort at Muckleshoot Casino.
Anticipated to open in the second quarter of 2021, the 18-story, 400-room hotel tower will offer sweeping views showcasing the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Sixty percent of the accommodations will allow for stunning panoramas of Tahoma, the native name for Mount Rainier, while other rooms will showcase the majesty of the Olympic mountain range.
Beyond the comfort of their plush retreats, guests will be able to enjoy an indoor, climate-controlled pool, pamper themselves with signature spa treatments, and more. A supervised play area and arcade will provide peace of mind for parents seeking respite of a different kind. Additionally, dining will reach new heights with a rooftop, fine-dining restaurant.
Muckleshoot Casino General Manager Conrad Granito states, “The Muckleshoot Indian Tribe has a history of innovation and leadership in Indian gaming. This logical evolution of their well-respected casino brand acknowledges consumer desires for a one-stop entertainment destination where fun, relaxation and dining beyond anything the market currently offers is just steps away.”
The hotel resort at Muckleshoot Casino will be the pinnacle of an exciting expansion already underway which completely re-envisions the gaming destination. The first phase of the project will add a 20,000-square-foot, technologically advanced events center, a trio of fast-casual dining destinations, a high-energy center bar, and more. Smoke-free gaming at Muckleshoot Casino, already the most offered in the state, also will increase. Additionally, a carefully curated cultural gallery will celebrate the history and journey of the Muckleshoot Tribe. The completion of the expansion’s first phase is expected in spring 2020.
Once the full transformation is unveiled one year later in 2021 with the debut of an anticipated Four-Star resort, Muckleshoot Casino will take its reputation as the “Biggest and Best in the Northwest” to an unparalleled level with 157,000 square feet of continuous gaming, 29,000 total square feet of event space, more than a dozen dining choices, and much, much more.

Muckleshoot Indian Tribe
The Muckleshoot Indian Tribe’s membership is composed of descendants of the Duwamish and Upper Puyallup people who inhabited Central Puget Sound for thousands of years before non-Indian settlement. The Tribe’s name is derived from the native name for the prairie on which the Muckleshoot Reservation was established.
Today, the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe is a major contributor to the local economy and community providing resources to other governments, schools, nonprofits, and churches throughout Washington. The benefits of the Muckleshoot Tribe’s economic revival go well beyond financial contributions. From landmark agreements protecting fish and wildlife habitats and innovative educational programming to hundreds of partnerships with organizations serving those in need throughout the state, the Muckleshoot Tribe is committed to improving the quality of life of its citizens, neighbors and workforce while preserving its culture and laying the groundwork for a bright future.
