When the Kalispel Tribe of Indians invested in an expansion and upgrade of the existing property and created Northern Quest Resort & Casino, there was a deliberate decision to integrate the tribe’s rich cultural history and ties to the Northwest into the design style. The 10-story building is clad in stone, steel and glass. The Heritage Hallway, which connects the Spokane hotel and casino, houses tribal artifacts and historical images. The interior of the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel integrates natural elements of stone, wood and water, reflecting the importance of the natural world to the culture of the tribe. You’ll see a luxurious addition above the central staircase: an exquisite 21-foot chandelier with hand-blown glass cattails representing the circle of life.
