SEQUIM, WA, July 24, 2020—The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe will open the first phase of the 7 Cedars Resort master-plan, five story, 100 room hotel, positioned adjacent to the 7 Cedars Casino in Sequim, Washington.
The Tribe worked with Rice Fergus Miller Architecture on design choices—using natural elements spanning from water to sky that will visually tell the story of the Pacific Northwest, and our Tribe’s history and culture. The design team worked to create a seamless integration of the design vision from architecture to interiors. Warm tones of the wood façade and tower colors in the lobby are complimented by a custom curated art experience that fills the hotel. The art featured in the hotel is by Coast Salish artists and Pacific Northwest photographers, the directive from the leadership of 7 Cedars was to bring to life a wide array of both tribal and nature-based art, not featuring a single tribe, but rather featuring artists from all over the region.
The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe’s goal is to enhance a visitor’s sense of place, its history, and to offer an opportunity to experience the beauty and authenticity of our natural surroundings.
The art collection on each floor of the hotel tells a story of a “Layer of Life”, Water-Land-Trees-Sky. A 42-foot totem pole, carved by Nathan Gilles, named “Welcome to the Land of Sea to Sky” will greet you as you enter this beautiful setting.
A complimentary piece to the art collection is the custom corridor carpet inspired by the shoreline of the Olympic Peninsula. Tribal Council Chairman/CEO Ron Allen loaned RFM’s design team a number of cedar hats from his personal collection that were used for inspiration for the custom guestroom carpet.
The first floor is comprised of a large lobby, conference/meeting/ banquet space, administrative offices, and the Jamestown Java Coffee Shop. The four upper floors offer 100 rooms that are unlike any other property on the peninsula and provide an array of guestroom experiences in a boutique setting. The hotel has five room types, King, Double Queen, King Suites, Executive Suites, and one-bedroom Corner Suites. The rooms are designed with uniquely crafted themes of Cedar Forest, Salish Sea, and Canoe Journey, which inspire the palettes, colors, textures, and tone in each room.
The long-awaited hotel will open August 4, 2020. The Tribe looks forward to this journey and its continued growth as part of this community. With our primary emphasis on the health and well-being of our Tribal and Olympic Peninsula community, because of the current pandemic, our grand opening plan is set for a future date.
We hope that you will join us in creating your own extraordinary experience with a stay in the hotel. We are here to welcome you. Visit us at 7Cedars.com.
