“When we announced we were going to undertake a $75-million expansion – many thought we were crazy. The Tribe didn’t sit back and wait to be victimized by the economy. The Tribe took control of its own destiny. We moved forward with a vision, the results of which can now be found inside this beautiful resort.” said Coeur d’Alene Tribal Chairman Chief Allan.
The project marks the seventh expansion completed at the resort since it opened in 1993. The expansion brings 100 upscale hotel rooms complete with great views of the native wetlands and rolling Palouse hills, plus the latest technology, built-in cabinetry, dramatic 10-foot doors and floor-to-ceiling windows, the new Ts’elusm steakhouse, a 15,000 square-foot, full-service spa called Ssakwa’q’n offering an all-season, open-air pool, Vichy shower, cedar saunas, 10 treatment rooms and a tea lounge.
Other amenities include 10-acre “Front Yard” that will serve as an outdoor amphitheater for concerts and other outdoor events as well as provide a location for a year-round fire circle, the new “Yap kee num sports bar and café offering a vast selection of beers, wines and spirits and a pub-style menu.
“The amenities we added have dramatically expanded the resort and the overall experience our guests can expect here,” said Dave LaSarte-Meeks, Chief Executive Officer of the Coeur d’Alene Casino Resort.
