Location, Location, Location!

Seattle Ballooning picks guests up directly in front of the Muckleshoot Casino Resort. Located in Auburn, Washington, just 35 minutes from Downtown Seattle is a true paradise. The Muckleshoot Casino is nestled beautifully amidst the natural wonders of the Pacific Northwest, Mt. Rainier, The Green River, and The White River. It’s pretty amazing! The Muckleshoot Casino’s 18-story, 401-room glass tower hotel in Auburn, Washington, offers jaw-dropping views that will kickstart your hot air ballooning experience before you even take off! It’s actually the tallest structure in the entire area. Plus, it’s the closest upscale hotel to Mt. Rainier National Park, allowing you to bask in nature’s glory without the city hustle. The Muckleshoot Indian Tribe has spent billions of dollars over the last three years to create a world-class gaming facility, a beautiful hotel, and an epic event space woven with Native American culture and Muckleshoot history as an homage to their ancestors. 

Muckleshoot Luxurious Comfort

At the heart of the Pacific Northwest, with the majestic backdrop of Mt. Rainier and the serene White River, stands the Muckleshoot Casino Resort. It’s not just any resort but a 5-diamond haven of luxury and comfort. It’s the largest hotel in the South Sound, and every facet of this establishment screams luxury. Plus, it’s a smoke-free hotel…which should be the norm anyway! The Muckleshoot Tribe created a premium property to compete with the Four Seasons and The Fairmont Hotel in Seattle. They did a fantastic job. The first thing guests are likely to notice is the exceptional staff, ever ready with a warm greeting, ensuring that each guest feels special and well-attended. The Elevated Guest Services set a new standard for hospitality, seamlessly combining professionalism with personal touch. Have a special request or need assistance planning your day? The concierge services are at your beck and call, equipped with in-depth knowledge of the locale and a genuine desire to enhance your stay. The hotel rooms are nothing short of perfection. First, the 18-story hotel tower is impeccably designed; each room offers a harmonious blend of modern aesthetics and cozy comfort. Imagine waking up to uninterrupted views of Mt. Rainier or watching the sunset over the White River. It’s not just a stay; it’s an experience. But the luxury doesn’t end there. The resort houses a state-of-the-art spa that promises a journey of rejuvenation and relaxation. Signature spa services, curated by skilled professionals, invite guests to shed their stresses and indulge in unparalleled pampering. And for those who prefer a more active form of relaxation, the indoor, climate-controlled pool awaits. Dive in and let the water’s embrace soothe your senses. Thinking of stepping out to explore the city or need a ride to your next adventure? The resort offers an exclusive town car service, ensuring guests travel in style and comfort, adding another layer of luxury to the experience.

Muckleshoot Exquisite Dining

Fine dining South of Seattle is typically challenging. Now, you can elevate your taste buds at the Muckleshoot Casino’s multiple restaurants.  Our favorite is the rooftop fine-dining restaurant. Dine high up while soaking in the mesmerizing views of Mt. Rainier and the Cascade Mountains. If you plan on flying on a hot air balloon the following day, go to dinner an hour before sunset and watch the balloons fly down the White River!  And did we mention it’s a steak restaurant?  Think Wagyu Steaks and high-end wines. Plus, there are outdoor dining and indoor dining tables available! Seattle Ballooning’s team will help you secure a reservation if needed. The casino also hosts various food options in their 5 other restaurants.  You’ll find pizza, ice cream, deli food, and authentic Asian food.
