    On the 31st December 2009, the Northern Quest Resort and Casino opened a 250 room hotel and spa.The contemporary hotel features technology and a spa in an urban lodge environment, and was an investment exceeding US$200m.

    Northern Quest Resort & Casino is located minutes from downtown Spokane and Spokane International Airport, Washington.

    The resort is one of only a few properties in North America to install a total IP-based, high-definition solution and video-on-demand services that allow digital check-in and customized guest information delivered to in-room televisions.

    Guests can access a technology concierge and have dedicated bandwidth from every room. The resort includes over 6,700sqm of meeting room space.

    Guests will experience tribal influence throughout the property. At Masselow’s Restaurant, the new fine dining restaurant, guests will be greeted in Salish, the native language of the Kalispel Tribe. In the hotel’s Heritage Hallway, artifacts and images displayed represent the Tribe’s past, present and future.

    The spa and salon offers guests a men’s barber shop and a waterfall infused whirlpool in the relaxation room.

    The duet treatment room for couples or small groups features an oversized soaking tub and fireplace. The spa’s swimming pool features natural stone and a lighted river ceiling inspired by the Kalispels, the people of the river.

    The hotel’s opening is creating 325 new jobs, bringing Northern Quest Resort & Casino’s employment to approximately 1,675.

    The Resort spends over US$800,000 monthly on local goods and services. With a total of over 2,000 jobs across its government and business enterprises, the Kalispel Tribe is one of the top employers in Spokane County.
