Gaming Destinations: Talking Stick

Jennifer N. Dienst
Scottsdale’s premier Four-Diamond gaming destination

With 240,000 square feet of gaming and 100,000-plus square feet of meeting space, there’s little the 496-room Talking Stick Resort lacks for meetings - with built-in entertainment. The Arena, the largest poker room in Arizona, is the centerpiece of the hotel’s gaming floor, offering Texas Hold ’em, Omaha, 7-Card Stud, and other card games. Slots, table games, and Keno round out the gaming mix.

As for non-gaming activities, the AAA Four-Diamond–rated resort offers a sundry menu of on-site diversions, from massages with views of the Scottsdale skyline from the 14th-floor spa, to a few rounds of golf at the adjacent Talking Stick Golf Club. Two swimming pools, live entertainment and concerts, as well as five dining options - like the award-winning Orange Sky Restaurant - are available for group events or post-meeting R&R.
