Family Trip

The hotel was much nicer than we expected. The room was contemporary and furnished with quality furniture. The resort itself had several restaurants, bars and entertainment which were all good. The fine dining restaurant on the top floor was excellent and worth the price for a special dinner and had a beautiful view of the mountains. The only negative thing to say is that you have to walk through a smokey casino to get to the hotel portion of the resort. Overall we were very happy and would stay there again.

Overnight Stay Following Company Holiday Event

We had been to the casino at Talking Stick several times but had not ever seen the hotel part. I was extremely pleased to see professional, friendly security posted at the entrance to the hotel itself to limit access to the towers to guests only - it gave me a very secure and comfortable feeling. The room was exquisite - beautiful, modern design and extremely comfortable and roomy. I would not hesitate to stay here again!

Great location for business travelor

My room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. I was very pleasantly surprised at the high quality of the bed linens and the business center. The golf course was very nice and had a quick shuttle from the hotel to and from the course. I will definitely stay here again. The free wireless is a great feature. I got a great room and rate.

Awesome Spring Training Experience

My wife and I stayed at Talking Stick for a long weekend during spring training. It was a perfect quick get away. The pool is spacious with good bar service and the restaurants were tasty. The casino is good size with 30ish blackjack tables and a 40ish table poker room. You are also only a 5 minute drive to Salt River Fields for the Rox and Dbacks home games. Rooms were very comfortable and well furnished. Rainfall showers and a deep tub in the bathroom. Our only complaint is that the casino is extremely smoky compared to the newer Vegas casinos where they draw smoke straight up and perfume the air but this isn't vegas and understanding that it is a great property.

LOVED the resort!!

We just returned home and couldn't wait to write our review. We had an amazing view of the pool, golf course and mountains. Convenient access to the highway, many great eating options and overall a great time. We will definately stay again in fact I told several friends that travel to Arizona on trips too.
