Talking Stick Casino Resort Review

Talking Stick Casino Resort is located on the spot of the original Casino Arizona, their sister property, at 9800 East Indian Bend Road (Arizona 101 and Indian Bend) in Scottsdale, Arizona. The nearly quarter million square foot casino opened in May 2010 and features 800 slots machines and video poker games, 50 gaming tables, a keno lounge, and the biggest poker room in Arizona, known as The Arena Poker Room with 47 tables.

Accommodations are provided in a luxurious 4-star hotel with nearly 500 air-conditioned guestrooms and suites. The hotel hosts a full-service spa and fitness center and has perhaps the most beautiful infinity pool in the state. The resort also offers two distinct golf courses, an 18 hole link style North course and an 18 hole American classic course to the South.

Six Dining options run the gamut from a coffee shop and bistro to several upscale venues including Orange Sky, their signature restaurant on the 14th floor with 360-degree views of the valley through floor to ceiling windows.

Nightlife and entertainment venues abound, as well as daytime pool parties and live concerts. The Showroom hosts top name entertainers in an intimate 650 seat venue with private tables and booths.

Business amenities include a business center, 100,000 square feet of flexible meeting space including the 25,000 square foot Salt River Grand Ballroom, several small meeting rooms, and limo/town car service.

The resort is open 24 hours a day.
