• Expansion Made Way for New Hotel at Angel of the Winds Casino

    POSTED November 24, 2014

Dubbed the “world’s friendliest casino,” Angel of the Winds Casino will boast its 100,000 square feet of additional casino, as well as 50 jobs for the community of Arlington, Wash., through the ongoing $27 million construction project. The hotel is set to open mid-December 2014 and is in the third phase of the expansion project.

Casino guests have been requesting a hotel for the facility for some time, noted Travis O’Neil, general manager of Angel of the Winds Casino Hotel. The hotel will feature 125 guestrooms and will be connected to the casino. All standard rooms will house signature photography from local artist Steven Kennedy, RainDance Shower fixtures, polished chrome bathroom fixtures by Kohler, 42” LED TV, custom designed Simmons Beautyrest mattress, Keurig Coffee maker and an iPod speaker dock with clock radio. High speed internet and Wi-Fi will also be available as complimentary amenities. 

 “As we continue to grow, we anticipate adding more amenities that help to make Angel of the Winds a destination for not only the area, but the greater Pacific Northwest,” said O’Neil.


Built by DeamCatcher Hotels and constructed by Exxel Pacific, the hotel and Angel of the Winds Casino are located three minutes east of 1-5, Exit 210 in Arlington, Washington. Starting in November reservations for the hotel will be taken. Please call 360-474-9740 or visit www.AngelOfTheWinds.com to make a reservation or for more information about the casino and expansion project.  


Portland International Airport (PDX) was famously known for its teal, geometrically patterned carpet, which was sadly removed back in 2015. But now, PDX will be known for its recently completed, unique timber ceiling. ZGF Architects worked closely with PDX for 50 years and designed this transformation to last another half century. The Portland airport is becoming one of the first to be seismic-resilient and produce low carbon emissions, thanks to the 9 acres of native Pacific Northwest hardwood used in building the terminal’s ceiling.


The average event-goer spends long days sitting in meetings or professional development sessions, followed by an hour or two of standing and sipping cocktails. But holding your next big event at a spa resort opens a realm of possibilities for wellness breaks. Moving the action from the boardroom to the steam room can improve morale by combining business with pleasure—while also boosting attendees’ health. 


 Seattle is young and ever evolving, a dynamic city where newness is an integral part of the culture. And it has a long, proud history of hospitality.

In the early 1850s, Chief Seattle welcomed strangers to the banks of Puget Sound. Because of his kindness, they named their new settlement on Elliott Bay after him. “Seattle is a new city with an ancient culture,” notes Ken Workman, Chief Seattle’s great, great, great, great grandson. “It’s less than two grandmas old, as we like to say.”
