The buffet was incredible and the food was unbelievable. I tried to eat everything steak, shrimps, prime rib, chicken, roasted pork, salad, and the Banana Foster was AWESOME. I can't wait to eat there again and again.

A fabulous resort. We went up for the Happy Together Tour, a concert of 60's bands. The bands were great but the indoor venue is not conducive to good acoustics. The hotel rooms are beautiful with excellent amenities. The checkin process is abominable however. Long lines, not enough staff and the checkin center is hidden away in an alcove so... More

Spent two days at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. Went to play poker and they have a great poker room. Better than Planet Hollywood in Vegas. Had a great room with a view of the desert. Staff is friendly, but different from Vegas. I had to pay for drinks while playing and in Vegas you don't. Aside from... More

I booked a night after the Armin van Buuren Release pool party. The room was on Club Level 2 which is actually the 13th floor. The room and all its related features are very nicely appointed. It wasn't the cleanest of rooms and their welcome gift fell flat since I'm gluten-free due to an allergy. I wasn't able to sleep... More

We had the pleasure of staying in an executive king room facing the mountains to the west. Huge balcony and views from the windows are spectacular. 7th floor level is perfect. We have stayed here before but decided to book a romantic couples nite and it was definitely worth it. We love the variety of dining and live music options... More

Checked in for 3 night stay. 1st day, checked in, went to room, found a few crawling and dead bugs in bathroom. Stepped on them and figured problem solved. Went out to casino and enjoyed our time, returned to room and went to bed. 2nd day, when we got up in morning the bathroom with light colored floor tile was... More

Purchased tickets facing the stage and was relocated to seats that weren't facing the stage-not an action of talking stick, I think not anyway. $15 parking. A little slow in getting traffic cleared in comparison to Chase Field. Clean arena. Bathrooms were well stocked and monitored. Especially important for a female :) Food is overpriced of course. $6.50 for a... More

We booked 2 rooms for the family to watch a firework's show across the street. Found out the day of the stay that the firework's show was cancelled. Got in line at the hotel to check-in at 3:30 and got up to one of the 4 receptionists at 3:50. We were told one of the rooms was ready and the... More

As other reviews have mentioned, the customer service at Talking Stick is lacking to say the least. I am a local to Scottsdale and rented this room for my sons to have a place to stay after celebrating their 22nd birthday with the family at the hotel property. My son was later accused of some vague misbehavior by security, escorted... More

After spending 4 days at Enchantment in Sedona I figured we would have a little reality check here. Though not Enchantment we were surprised at how nice everything was. We had a club level room with a great enclosed patio. Room was spacious and immaculate, everything was accessible. Staff were helpful and courteous.
