Nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains overlooking the 268-foot Snoqualmie Falls in Washington state, Salish Lodge & Spa is a luxury hotel set in an iconic setting just 30 miles east of Seattle and within 40 minutes of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. recognized as one of the Top 20 Hotels in the Pacific Northwest on Condé Nast Traveler’s annual Readers’ Choice Survey for the 5th year in a row, each of its 84 guest rooms, including four suites, has a wood-burning fireplace, two-person whirlpool tub, goose-down comforter, feather bed and balcony or window seat.

Engrained in Snoqualmie history, the Snoqualmie Falls Lodge, began as an eight-room inn built in 1916 as a rest stop for the traveler. Since then it became famous for its Farm Breakfast and has gone several major renovations. In 1988 the building was completely remodeled and reopened as the Salish Lodge and is owned by the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe. At the end of last year, the iconic Pacific Northwest lodge also announced a two-phase $12 million project to renovate each of its guestrooms, the largest the property has seen since 1988. With the first stage completed in January and the second anticipated for late Spring, the lodge is excited to bring new features and luxury amenities inspired by the lodge’s distinctive heritage to its guests.
