No need to stop along the way. The Casino has it all, and it’s now 100% smoke free.

Be sure to book your room in advance as the resort is a destination for many coming from both north and south. The spacious rooms have recently been renovated and updated with modern lighting, new flooring, furniture and accents, relaxing rainfall shower heads and extremely comfortable mattresses. Big screenTVs and ample desk space could keep you in your room, but you really should get out and explore the casino.

Once you check in be sure to visit the Xperience Players Club to sign up for the Xperience Players Club Card. The card is free, and gives you discounts on dining, the hotel, Strikerz Bowling and All Things Sports, where you can play golf and many other virtual sports

We’d recommend taking a seat at 210 Brewing Co. and sampling a few of the craft beers made by the first tribal-owned brewery in Washington State. There are seasonal beers, and plenty of ales, IPAs, and lagers to sample, as well as a happy hour from 2pm-4pm daily. The menu here is diverse.

There’s bar food such as street corn dip and carne asada fries, but also mains such as the steak frites and wild char-grilled salmon. You can also pop back here for a delicious breakfast in the morning, as they open at 7 a.m.

Other onsite restaurants include Playa Bonita – Mexican Cuisine, Jade Fusion – Southeast Asian, Katie’s Kitchen – great burgers.

There are four bars should you get thirsty, and a coffee shop that has delightful pastries. Outside the main casino, between Strikerz Bowling and the Rivers Run Event Center you’ll find Angel Eats, the spot that keeps bowl – ers and “golfers” fueled up. Their party and appetizer platters are built for sharing, and the nachos and sundaes are impressive.

Throughout this time, the local insurance brokerage continued to develop their expertise in home insurance and commercial insurance products for small and medium size businesses.

With Allwest’s continued growth and success over the last five decades and its expansion to six offices across the Lower Mainland, from North Vancouver to Langley, the growing local brokerage attracted the attention of Navacord, one Canada’s top four commercial insurance brokerages.

Navacord, based in Toronto, Ontario, is a Canadian leader in group insurance and risk management solutions. It was created when industry leaders Jones Delauriers Inc. and Lloyd Sadd Insurance Brokers joined forces to start a brokerage with a unique ownership model and value proposition.

Originally created when “two like-minded insurance brokers came together to create the Great Canadian Insurance Brokerage,” Navacord is now strategically building a broker partner network across Canada, carefully targeting smaller, successful insurance brokers that demonstrate strong leadership and share niche sector knowledge.

Navacord partners with them and offers national strength together with access to underwriting options that the small brokerages traditionally would not be able to acquire on their own.

This ultimately delivers an unparalleled level of service while still honouring and maintaining the high level of personal attention that the smaller brokerage’s local touch can provide.

The real treat here for dining is the Whisky Prime Steakhouse, with their locally sourced Washington beef, their own meat aging lock – ers, fabulous service, a great menu, and an im – pressive wine list. People come to the casino just to dine here, so reserve a table in advance. Order a cocktail and perhaps the scallops Rockefeller, seared octopus, or shrimp ceviche to start.

The wedge salads and French onion soup are very popular, and then there is a range of steaks and other mains to choose from with sauces and veggie sides to ensure your meal is complete. Dessert is worth saving room for. Once you’re ready to hit the casino floor, the flashing slots are difficult to resist. There’s the Treasure Wave with extreme rewards such as a hotel stay as well as cash prizes, and The Wheel Force Double Supreme with all wheels, no reels and five prizes per spin.

Table games include Bahamas bonus blackjack, roulette, ultimate Texas hold’em, fortune pai gow poker and craps. Whether you come to relax in your room, hit the slots and tables, try some craft beer, dine out in style, or just grab a quick bite, Angel of the Winds has a special Xperience for you.
