Just outside of Seattle, the Salish Lodge & Spa unveiled 86 newly renovated guestrooms, marking the completion of a two-phase remodel.

The new room design reflects the surrounding Northwest landscape, including the Snoqualmie Falls, along with upgraded features and luxury amenities inspired by the lodge’s distinctive heritage.

The $12-million renovation is the largest property improvement initiative undertaken at Salish since 1988.

The redesigned guestrooms were decorated with locally crafted furnishings that incorporate natural textures, woods and organic fabrics. New in-room amenities include an upgraded fireplace and a bathroom with either a spa-like shower with dual showerheads or a soaking tub.

The corridors got new paint and carpet, while historic wood-burning fireplaces remain a highlight throughout the lodge, lobby and restaurants.

The property’s spa was also refreshed, including an expansion of the ladies’ locker room and updates to the soaking pools and steam room. The lodge also launched Club 268, whose name serves as a nod to Snoqualmie Falls’ 268-foot height, with all spa-level River View King guestrooms. The enhanced offering includes access to The Spa’s pools and entrance to the Club 268 lounge with a 75-inch HDTV and featuring a wood-burning fireplace.

Originally known as Snoqualmie Falls Lodge, Salish opened in 1916 as an eight-room inn. The lodge was remodeled in 1988 and reopened as Salish Lodge.
