Maybe these past few weeks you’ve seen the bright lights from the highway and wondered what small city had sprung up out of the desert near the 101 and East Indian Bend Road. Well, consider the mystery solved – the illumination is coming from the brand-new, 15-story Talking Stick Resort and Casino, a state-of-the-art vacation property poised to revolutionize the casino and resort scene in Phoenix. Boasting nearly 500 rooms and a wealth of amenities and services, including a business center, rental car and valet service, 24-hour room service, and Wi-Fi, Talking Stick is likely to become a favorite among guests in search of an ultra-luxurious resort and casino experience in Arizona.
Imagine yourself spending the day playing on the floor of the 240,000-square foot casino, with more than 900 slot machines and more than 100 poker and blackjack tables to choose from. After winning big, take a break at the Coffee Garden or Black Fig Bistro, then head back to the casino for more high-stakes poker, or swing by the 14th floor instead to enjoy a hot stone massage, body wrap, facial, or pedicure in the 13,000-square-foot rejuvenating spa.
If you’re in search of some Arizona sunshine, try the pool area (complete with pool bar), or check out one of the two Talking Stick championship golf courses nearby. And just before the sun sets, make your way to the resort’s topmost floor to recharge at the Orange Sky Restaurant, where you’ll enjoy fine cuisine and take in the breathtaking 360-degree view of the Valley. After dinner, wind down in the Shadows piano bar, Player’s Sports Bar, or chic Degree 270 lounge.
The official grand opening isn’t until June, but the Talking Stick is already accepting reservations right now for April and May. Consider this your opportunity to check out the resort and casino before the rest of the crowd discovers that those bright lights from the highway aren’t a small city, but rather, the desert’s shiniest new jewel of a vacation spot.
Talking Stick Resort and Casino is a SRP-MIC enterprise located at 9800 E. Indian Bend Road in Scottsdale (866) TSR-9897
