Don't get me wrong this location is definitely worth it and the hotel room is great and the bathroom even better. Had a terrible experience at the spa where I was getting my hair done and I just walked away as the person that was "the expert" didn't even know how to braid hair hahaha and she was supposed make...

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for New Year's Eve. The only room available was on the concierge floor and it was VERY expensive. However, the room was nicely appointed, the bathroom was large and well stocked, and the service was great. The concierge floor had wine, beer, soft drinks, and snacks during happy hour. The hotel is... More

Had an amazing girls spa getaway at this resort. The staff in the spa were so accommodating and the pedi/mani was amazing. Although I am not a huge fan of buffets this one was incredible and fresh! Room was large enough for three of us!

Our New Year's Eve package included two nights on the club level (allowing access to continental breakfast and afternoon drinks and light meal), buffet dinner on New Year's Eve and a show from 9:00 til 12:30. The ballroom was beautifully decorated making the night very festive. The first part of the show was a fun and energetic cover band, Boogie... More

The Bathroom had both a standing shower and a very nice bathtub you could relax in. They have a hipster barber from Poland one the first floor who gave me... More

The bed was comfortable so that was a plus for us.The casino was too smoky for me so next time i will prefer a nonsmoking... More

My friends and I did a "staycation" over the holidays in Scottsdale and stayed at Talking Stick. Very upbeat fun place with a cool vibe. Rooms with balconies were very neat and roomy. Bathrooms were awesome. They don't nickle and dime you for things like parking either. Not far from both downtown Scottsdale and Kierland, so a good overall location.

Went there for our 40th anniversary. Room was basic. Asked for a quiet room. Drunk partiers across the hall from us. At 1:30 AM we asked them to keep it down. At 3:30 AM we asked them again, they told us to F--- off. We call the front desk. They sent up security and they told them to keep it... More
