10 July 2013

SALT RIVER PIMA-MARICOPA INDIAN COMMUNITY, Arizona -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Talking Stick Resort, an enterprise of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, announced that it is a recipient of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, an award given to businesses that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. This marks the second time in two years Talking Stick Resort has been given this prestigious accolade.

"Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a true source of pride for the entire team at Talking Stick Resort because it takes the hard work of everyone here to achieve it," said Steve Gerken, senior director of hospitality of Talking Stick Resort. "It is thanks to the tremendous effort by our employees that our guests have a memorable visit. Our staff is the most important component to this property's excellence."

In order to qualify for a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, an organization must have been listed on the popular travel website for at least 12 months. In that time, they need to maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five in reviews from travelers. An additional criteria for the award is the volume of reviews made about the property.

The 15-story Talking Stick Resort is the Southwest's leading resort destination. The property is home to 496 deluxe rooms including 15 luxury suites. For amenities, no other hotel compares, thanks to its oversized 240,000 sq. ft. gaming floor, 650-seat showroom for live entertainment and the luxurious 14-floor spa with relaxing Native American inspired treatments. The food and drink options are unbeatable too with six lounges and five restaurants including its signature Orange Sky restaurant with breathtaking 360-degree views of the Valley.

"Further, to get an award based on the feedback of our guests is a great honor. It indicates that we are hitting the right cord with them," elaborated Gerken. "All that we do is for their comfort and enjoyment, so it's nice to know we are getting it right."
