We watched a concert and decided to check-in for the night. The room is beautiful with a very clean bathroom. The bed, pillows and linens are comfortable.The lobby is packed with lots of music, dancing and well-mannered guests. Definitely an upscale hotel. In the morning, the breakfast buffet is only about $10 and has a global selection.

My check in and check out was super fast. The room was very comfortable and it had a complimentary coffee machine with several coffee varieties and tea too. They replenished it daily and had complimentary water as well. They have several food outlets with reasonably priced meals. The Mexican meals are delicious and authentic. There was no complementary breakfast though.

We had dinner at this fabulous resort with the most amazing views of the desert. The food was incredible and the service impeccable. The best time to go is at sunset sit back with a glass of wine and just relax and enjoy

Bathroom mirror too far from the sink, not comfortable, there was design problems. There are no amenities found like bonnet etc that you expected in 5 star resort without... More

Great low-key customer service! Parking valets open both doors, front desk very responsive. It was a Birthday trip for my husband and we were given an upgraded room on the northeast corner of the tenth floor. There were sweeping majestic mountain views, and pool and golf course below. Visit the Orange Sky restaurant for top floor sunset views. The balcony... More

I was here on business and absolutely loved this property. The casino is not huge but big enough that you won't get bored with the same machines over and over if staying for 2 or 3 nights. The staff were professional and courteous. The rooms were spacious and the bathroom was spa like! Although the view from my room overlooked... More

My boyfriend and I have lived in Arizona for a while but just recently relocated to Texas. On a weekend trip back to AZ we stayed at Talking Stick, and it was a perfect mini vacation. The resort has everything you'd need for a good time, including a full casino, pool side concerts every night, and reasonably priced room service.... More

The casino itself is clean, modern, and very nice. But, read on.... Never ever ever attend an outdoor concert from June through September. We did so on 9/2 at the pool area. Teeny tiny little folding chairs without a needle width between them. Hundreds is souls stuffed together like the meat in hard salami. So hot and humid standing or... More

Best decision we made during our trip was to stay here. At first a counter staff was a bit cranky. It seemed like they were under staffed almost. But the rest of our stay was perfect. Beautiful facilities with mountain views everywhere. Staff were courteous. Entertainment was fun. Even though we didn't do concerts or the club it was still... More

Went to check out the golf. The course was in excellent condition. It was fantastic, but I also visited the casino. Likewise, it was a great experience. I'm going back for an extended stay this winter.
