Colorado Rockies 2015 Spring Training: If You Go …

The Talking Stick Resort is across Hwy. 101 from the ballpark. Gambling, Indian-casino style.

The Talking Stick brand extends to the Pavilions at Talking Stick, a shopping mall south of the ballpark. There you’ll find some standard chain restaurants, including a Souplantation and Denny’s.

You are only five miles away from downtown Scottsdale, which we covered in depth earlier in this eBook. To get there from the ballpark, go south on Pima to Indian Bend Road and turn left. Drive a mile west to Hayden Road, then turn left and drive for 2.5 miles until you reach downtown Scottsdale.

Where to Stay: The Talking Stick Resort is across Hwy. 101 from the ballpark. The 496-room/suite hotel features a 240,000-square-foot casino, two championship-level golf courses designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, two pools with private cabanas, and several restaurants, the Talking Stick Resort is part of the SRPMIC development efforts. This is by far the nicest accommodation close to the ballpark. Talking Stick Resort, 9800 E. Indian Bend Road; Scottsdale; 480/850-7777; talkingstickresort.com.

Across the street from the ballpark: Days Inn and Suites Scottsdale. The old Pima Inn & Suites has been remodeled with a new lobby and upgraded rooms. Normal room rates are around $125 a night; good luck getting a room for 2013. Days Inn and Suites Scottsdale, 7330 N. Pima Rd.; Scottsdale; 480/948-3800; daysinnscottsdale.com.

Within a short drive: the Hampton Inn & Suites Scottsdale-Riverwalk. Corporate all the way, but it’s new and clean. Hampton Inn & Suites Scottsdale-Riverwalk, 9550 E. Indian Bend Road, Scottsdale; 480/270-5393; hamptoninn.com.
