4-Star Gaming Resort with Luxurious Spa Wing
Topped with a curved roof that swoops like a wind-tossed cowlick, the Wind Creek Casino & Hotel is an expansive recreational complex encompassing a casino, a luxurious spa, and more than 200 spacious guest rooms. The hotel's hospitality and understated elegance have helped it earn a Four Diamond rating from AAA.
The Spa at Escape is a sprawling wing of the resort devoted to relaxation and renewal. Before and after massages, facials, and body treatments, you can feel free to unwind in a sauna, steam room, and whirlpool.
Tall ceilings soar over the oval-shaped casino, a 57,000-square-foot complex with more than 1,600 electronic games. You can also check out live music at the nearby amphitheater; in fact, the resort hosts many shows throughout the year.
For the culinary-experience option, you and another guest will partake in a special cooking class. The resort has its own cooking studio where you can learn the ins and outs of various cooking techniques and traditions with the help of professional chefs and high-end equipment. The hotel also has four restaurants. Enjoy prime steaks and fine wines at Fire Steakhouse; alternatively, Taste Buffet has everything from Asian cuisine to pasta to Mexican food.
Wind Creek outfits each room with a Dream Weaver bed wrapped in Egyptian cotton sheets and topped with an overstuffed down duvet. Cozy up with a movie on the 42-inch flat-screen TV, or treat yourself to some DIY aromatherapy with blue-cedar- and honeysuckle-scented Yves Rocher bath products. Level 15 suites—located on the 15th floor of the main tower—evoke the feel of a spa, with bamboo flooring and thick, luxurious robes and slippers.
