          ExceptionalStaff, property and amenities were great. My only complaint was that the carpet was soaked in my room as though it had just been shampooed and I had to wear shoes the entire time I was in my room doing anything. However the front desk stated that because I made my reservation through a third party website, the only thing they could do for my inconvenience was to waive the $28 resort fee on a $200/night room. We ate a very pricey dinner at Orange Sky, which was a lovely restaurant with great staff. However, for the prices, we were slightly disappointed in the food, sandy scallops underwhelming sea food, and a very tender but flavorless steak. The buffet was also sorely overpriced or should at least give you a one trip option. Again, overall, Talking Stick was a lovely weekend getaway with lots of options on site so leaving the resort isn't neccicary, which was nice. I would go again and would probably recommend it but with a couple of warnings.

          Acceptable”

          We paid over $200 a night, and when we checked in we were slammed with another charge of $25 resort fee and $50 for something else which was returned upon checkout. My primary complaint is that there are no complimentary shuttles to and from airport, or to Talking Stick Arena downtown. I was assured several times over the weekend that there is no connection between the two, but this resort’s ads are all over the arena. Also, the “resort” fee we were charged covered what exactly? Cabana at the pool cost $150/hour? Seriously, I will never advise anyone to stay there and will be writing my review elsewhere.

          Beautiful, clean everywhere. Good entertainment. A lot to do. Buffet was good, but not worth 50.00 a person! We went to enjoy the pools. Wrong, just wrong that we had to pay 30.00 a person extra to utilize what you felt you already paid for in all your room service fees and resort fees. (Because they had a DJ playing). Pools are part of the property for all to use. Especially in AZ when it’s 108 degrees. Probably will not go back.

          Nice place”

          This overall was a nice place. The only issues I would have is you have to walk through the smokey casino to get to your room or your car. That smell stays on you. The room was great, the staff was very nice. The business center however you have to pay to use the computer. So it is not a true business center. You can use one by the room entrance for something quick, but if you have actual business (Mine took 15 minutes) I had to pay to get it done.

          Talking Stick is a Good Place to stay”

          The Talking Stick resort has a lot going for it, including 5 restaurants, nice pool areas, a large parking garage, and a very good high-end restaurant with good food and an amazing view. The rooms are modern, comfortable and well designed. And the resort is located near a major highway that gives access to anywhere you want to go in Phoenix/ Scottsdale. Gambling and gaming is an added bonus if that is an activity you enjoy. In all, we liked the Talking Stick and would stay there again.

          A very expensive option for a hotel. The extremely smokie resort and lack of being able to get helpful information from the concierge made it even worse. I did read the reviews before booking but it was not really made clear how awful the smokie resort was. I was unable to use any of the facilities due to the smoke. The hotel rooms were nice but it DID NOT make up for the unhealthy environment.
