This hotel definitely has a Las Vegas feel to it. Out of all the casinos in the Phoenix area this one is my favorite. We stayed at this hotel in the summer and attended one of the pool parties. The buffet was your standard Las Vegas type buffets with crab legs and prime rib. Dance club was fun however drinks... More

My husband and I came to the Talking Stick Resort in May 2014 to see Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers for the first outdoor venue the resort had. It was pretty awesome! We loved the poolside setting to the place, as we could sit around the pool and watch the show. We ended up getting food during the show and... More

The one thing you will notice is that hotel room rates in Phoenix area in winter are over the top; for obvious reasons. Great weather. I was heading to phoenix for a day with a business colleague and after a lot of options zeroed in on TS. As is known the hotel is in the casino. They have free valet;... More

When I checked into the hotel with my wife, the front desk people were nasty and rude. The room was very dirty. A veru dursty hotel. Most people working there are extremely rude. You must stay away from this hotel. Avoid this hotel at all costs. The buffett has very bad food also and the cost is a total rip-off.

Stayed here on business for three nights and had a great time! The room was great, comfortable and quiet. The casino is small, but it has everything you could want. There are several really good restaurants on location as well. The hotel is also located close to shopping if interested. And there are tons of golf courses in the area.

This resort is quite beautiful. We have end room with beautiful covered patio overlooking golf course and mountain. Bathroom is beautiful and windows in room are floor to ceiling and take up two walls. Room is immaculate. Staff here goes out of their way to make your stay a great one. Nice restaurants and casino. It is a shame they... More

I had received a gift card for Talking Stick resort for a 2 night stay with the hubby. Was going to book an executive king (I think these have the balconies) and there was an option to take a "Club Level" room. This is a very nice room (without a balcony mind you) with some very nice perks. The room... More

The Talking stick is a beautiful resort. What's not to like? We just saw Jay Leno in the grand ballroom, this past Sat. night. The Orange Sky Restaurant, on the top floor, is where I take my wife each Christmas. It's well worth it. Sometimes the Talking Stick has a resort fee and this month, Dec. 2014, they do not... More

Staying at the Talking Stick and once again impressed with the facility and room. Giant, comfortable bed with lots of pillows, great working area in the room, giant bathroom and every room seems to have a bathtub (versus many hotels now offering just showers). Restaurant on ground level pretty basic but quite good, nice sushi and sandwiches and entrees, with... More
