Wonderful Scottsdale hotel location

Posted Nov 18, 2017
The Talking Sticks Resort is a perfectly located on the outskirts of the expanding Scottsdale region. Situated close to area highways for easy access. Smartly prepared rooms and modern amenities with cultural influence. Polite and polished staff to cater to guest needs. Looking forward to our next stay!

Great hotel close to everything in Phoenix

Posted Nov 14, 2017
Pros: Super clean and modern. Nothing looked dated.
Cons: A+++ all the way around.
Location: Phoenix stadium is nearby as well as lots of shopping and centrally located but quiet.
Came down specifically for the football game SEA @ AZ. We stayed 3 nights and loved it. Everything was clean and staff was friendly. The surrounding area was quiet and relaxing. Great location for a lot of activities in the area.

This is an hotel for partying Las Vegas style.

Posted Nov 13, 2017
Pros: Location and service.
Cons: Reduce the noise coming from the A/C.
Location: Golf, aquarium, insertarium, inside skydiving, shopping.
The hotel is well located. There is a lot of activities in the area. This is a place to stay if you want to go out and party. Considering the noise coming from the A/C and the flashing light on the balcony, this is not a place where you would axpect to rest and have some sleep.

Nothing special about this place.

Posted Nov 7, 2017
No real charm at this place - no character - pool area so so. Had a reservation to eat at Orange Sky on the patio and they cancelled it and moved us indoors at the last minute to accomodate a bigger party. I had made the reservation 3 days earlier. I have stayed at the Boulders and Camelback Resort - both far outshine this place. Would not return.

Nice hotel but smoky casino

Posted Nov 5, 2017
Pros: Clean and very quiet on 10th floor. Nice pool area. Lovely spacious room.
Cons: Allow hotel guests to get from registration to rooms without walking through the casino!!
Location: It was very close to Phoenix Airport
The hotel was very nice, but didn’t realize when I booked that it was also a casino. Our room was smoke-free, but had to walk through smoke haze of the casino to get to it. Had a hard time with that.
