resort or beer joint?

Posted Jul 28, 2015
Pros: The room and the staff.
Cons: partition off the smoking area from the check in area. Make it possible and clearly marked how to get to your room without going through casino area.
Walked in to check in to hotel room at this "resort" only to be assaulted by loud noise and a ton of second hand smoke. Did not stay the second night. The room however was extremely nice and the personnel were very kind and courteous.

THIS IS A VERY VERY NICE RESORT. FUN ENJOYMENT.

Posted Jul 26, 2015
Location: LOCATION IS RIGHT OFF THE 101 FWY WHICH GETS YOU TO SURROUNDING TOWNS I.E. TEMPE, GILBERT, CHANDLER AND STRAIGHT OUT TO THE 1-17 TO GO TO PRESCOTT,ETC
THE STAFF WAS KIND AND EFFICIENT AT EVERY LEVEL. WHEN CHECKING IN I REQUESTED A RM NEAR THE ELEVATORS AND SHE REASSIGN ONE FOR ME. THE ROOMS ARE SPECIAL, CLEAN, AND NOISE FREE!! POOL WAS PERFECT TEMP AND KEPT IN GREAT SHAPE. THE BUFFET WAS REALLY NICE AND REASONABLE!

Last stay

Posted Jul 26, 2015
Pros: The Palo Verde lounge was finally completed!
Location: Old Scottsdale is near by; lots of shopping and dinning businesses to choose from.
Talking Stick reservation policy changed this past year. Almost one year ago, we were able to request a pool view room without any added cost. Now there is an additional fee for pool view rooms. That was our last stay at this hotel.

Excellent service at every encounter along the way with the staff. I have visited several times this past year and not once have I had a bad experience. Wish I could have stayed longer!

Love the Talking Stick!

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Beautiful resort. We booked for 4th of July weekend. Stayed in Executive King room. Nice room, but the sheets were hard and scratchy? Also, no tub in this room...guess I missed that in the description. The SPA at Talking Stick is simply, The Best!.

Nice hotel, party/casino atmosphere

Posted Jul 4, 2015
Check in was slow and the desk did not acknowledge us before going to the back. The place smells very smoky for being relatively new and the smoke does permeate up to the rooms even though we had a non-smoking room. They have a family but this is not somewhere that I would bring my son as it is very much an adult/casino environment. We ordered room service which took three hours and several phone calls before it came to us. The manager ended up comping our meal, however it was not worth the hassle. On the positive side, we did come here for a concert and had a good time. Our room was nice and very clean. We probably will not stay here again.

AWESOME

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: The atmosphere
Cons: I would re-locate the front desk next to the hotel elevators.
Location: Went to Top Golf. What a fun experience
Every staff person I came in contact with was very pleasant, friendly, cheerful and helpful. Each person would go out of their way to make sure they addressed my questions and always asked if there was anything else they could help me with. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! . The ladies at the spa were awesome! They treated me like a queen. I will definitely stay there again.

Hotel staff mad that we booked through third party

Posted Jun 23, 2015
The hotel itself is good however right from the check in we were given a signature suite on the ground level with a view to the parking lot, we weren't given two queens like we had requested. We were told because we booked through a third party nothing is guaranteed. we got 1 king and 2 cots. Room was pretty big with a balcony but the view was parking lot and ground level. Pool was nice and big. Hotel is really far from the central core so ended up spending a lot on taxis. I would stay at the W next time, the one time we visited they provided us with a courtesy car back to the talking stick and we didn't even stay there.. What??
