The room was nicely appointed, fairly large, and the bed/pillows were above average. The bathroom was large and the shower was well above average. The views of the mountains were quite a bit in the distance, but nonetheless enjoyable. The TV was average and we did not use the WiFi although it was included in the price. The casino was... More

The reviews complaining about the smoky casino at this property are accurate, but if you can separate that from the hotel, this can still be a very nice place to visit. We had two rooms, and both were what would be expected for the upscale prices. Amenities were satisfactory and staff friendly and helpful. Restaurants were very good overall and... More

My family and I spent 4 days there. We are now going to make it one of our favorite spots every visit to Scottsdale. Loved the room and the view of the mountains. Very quiet. Loved all the different restaurants downstairs. Nice golf course. Loved spending hours at the pools.

I stayed at Talking Stick for five nights for a family reunion. I had a lovely double room overlooking the pool. It was clean and modern. There was a flat screen tv and iPod dock. Tragically, the newer model of iPod or iPhone doesn't work with the older docks in the room. The fridge has a couple of bottles of... More

The view from my room was of the mountains and it was beautiful. The rooms were nice and clean. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of work space to get on my computer and review my meeting notes. If you are travelling from out of town, you will want to rent a car since there the hotel is... More

Local, and aven though I am not a huge gambler, I love staying at talking stick for a little staycation or even visiting for lunch! The rooms are nice, pools are decent, club upstairs is hit or miss...with the shops, top golf and salt river fields right across the street, there is definitely not a shortage of things to do...

The "Release Summer Pool Party" features deafening EDM (Electronic Dance Music) all day long (until 9pm Saturday and 7pm Sunday). No conversation is possible anywhere near the pools (the pools are very nice otherwise). Our 6th floor room faced the pool area and the window shutters rattled constantly. The guests in the pool area are some of the rudest I've... More

This place is a decent resort. The rooms are ok, not small, but not big. If you're there over the weekend in the summer, be prepared for loud music from the pool radiating thru the entire place from 11am-6pm. Kind of annoying, but that is what a resort is for - to party! The casino is decent. Very nice dealers.... More

My mom and I went for the day to play at the casino. It was a lot of fun and the prices were good. It was easy to play and we actually one all our money back on a slot machine. You should note that while you are playing on the floor you can get free soft drinks from the... More

I did not actually stay in the hotel. What I want to recommend is one of their restaurants/café on the main floor near the Player's Club called BLACK FIG BISTRO. They make fantastic sandwiches and their French fries are outstanding - kind of crispy. This time I ordered a Caesar Salad with Sirloin and it was delicious. My friend ordered... More
