I ended up needing a last minute reservation to stay just one night nearby, and The Talking Stick came up on my phone. After a long, stressful day, and getting a bit lost around the area, i finally arrived. Samantha at the Front Desk was SUCH a BLESSING to me...she could tell i was a bit frazzled and then saw...

We really liked the hotel and pool. We were there for a conference. So that is why we stayed there. Very nice, clean with a courteous staff. Kinda far from central Scottsdale but lots to do near that area.

There was lots to like about the property and restaurants, but too many bad experiences for my taste. We arrived at 9:30am and our room was ready, which was great. But when we tried to use the safe it wouldn't work, so we spent probably a half an hour with security trying to get it to work. It also didn't... More

The room was both comfortable and functional. It was large enough to move around and not feel cramped. The bathroom was not a closet and there was plenty of counter space. I like coffee in the morning. A Keurig machine in the room was appreciates. They also have security at the elevators requiring guests to show their room key.

Beautiful hotel, certainly worthy of its 4 diamond rating. Loved the Buffet, "The Black Fig" deli, and the rooms were immaculate and sophisticated. Worth every cent of the room rate charged. I also did a lot of shopping at their tiny gift shop...wish it was larger with more items. Bought some T-shirts and Native American jewelry, which I am really... More

Second visit to Talking Stick Resort! Stayed 2 nights in 2 club rooms! Great hotel but only one negative thing and that was we requested either 2 adjoins rooms or 2 rooms near each other! That part was very disappointing because we were extensively very far apart! Wish we had gotten an explanation as to why! Other than that rooms... More

First time to Scottsdale. So thrilled we chose this place to stay. Rooms very quiet, beds so comfy. Many places to eat, have a drink and also listen to live music. Casino on site if you wish to have a "flutter". And the staff - so so helpful. Thank you Talking Stick for making the last 3 days of our... More

This is the only place in the Valley I know of where you can go enjoy a cigar and a drink as well as listen to a band play & dance if you choose. It has an excellent outside patio also. The waitresses are pleasant and service is excellent.
