We stayed here for a mother daughter mid week getaway. The location is quiet but still close enough to shops and restaurants to be convenient. There is a free shuttle if you don't have a car too. We loved our colorful and comfortable room (nice bath products and a real hair dryer!) , the gorgeous lobby, and friendly service. We... More

First time ever visiting this hotel. I went for DINAH SHORE event in Palm Springs. First off, the room was not all that sanitary, I noticed stains, specks of trash, crumbs. There was damage on some furnishings. But it wasn't just the room that left a disappointment, it was most definitely the staff(MALE Staff). I felt completely disrespected and violated... More

My husband and I stayed here while attending a conference at the convention center. The hotel provided a shuttle to and from the convention center driven by very friendly and absolutely delightful young men.

The saguaro was the first hotel my wife and I stayed at for our first time taking vacation in the Palm Springs.

The Saguaro was formerly the Holiday Inn, which was purchased and refurbished about two years ago. Whilst the colour scheme looks good on the outside, the lurid orange of my room – orange curtains, orange bedcovers, orange chest of drawers, orange vanity unit in the bathroom, orange walls (well, you get the picture) – slightly got to me. The orange... More

Went here for a little girl's getaway. This hotel is spotless, and so fun. You will forget it was once probably a junky motel. I loved the music at the pool, as well as the free yoga. The food was great at the restaurant as well. The pop up shop, was fun inside the lobby. I also liked the orange... More

I stayed here with three friends for a "girls" get-away, and the Saguaro worked well for what we needed. We were able to get two rooms with queen beds at a good price. The decor and furniture were fine, as was the cleanliness of the hotel. The first afternoon (Friday) we relaxed by the pool, enjoyed the poolside bar service,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
To know Palm Springs is to love it. Whether you come for the sun, the spas or the style, there's an undeniable lure to this oasis of desert modernity in the Coachella Valley. Now, there's a new place to lay your head while soaking it all up. The Saguaro opened in February 2012, bringing with it a new sense of design, food and comfort. If you ever needed another reason to escape, you have one now. Guests enjoy our resort style amenities including our pool, fine dining, fitness, yoga and spa services. Guestrooms & Suites: Bright. Light. Colorful. The rooms at the Saguaro immerse you in the desert resort experience that is Palm Springs. Choose your view - mountain, garden courtyard with pool, or city lights. Nearly every room has a balcony or patio and is accented inside and out by the brilliant color of a native Mojave wildflower, creating a visual spectrum of light throughout the grounds. No one perspective is the same. Guestroom Amenities• Hotel and rooms renovated February 2012• Flat screen, 42" HDTVs• Views of surrounding mountains, courtyard and city (select rooms)• Outdoor patios or step out balconies • Large work desks• Stereo with iPod docking station• On-demand movies and music. Services & Amenities: There are certain standards by which a visit to Palm Springs is judged, such as pool time and the scenery that goes with it, the quality of architecture and design, and perhaps most importantly, the ability to enjoy the desert landscape and air, preferably with cocktail in hand. By all accounts, the Saguaro has you more than covered. Hotel Services• Pet-friendly• Secure self parking*• Laundry and dry cleaning service• Wireless Internet Access*• Daily yoga*• Complimentary local transportation**included in daily resort fee of $18.00 USD per night. Meetings & Events: In the 1920s, Hollywood stars began decamping to Palm Springs to relax, party and rejuvenate. You can imagine more than a few screenplays were pitched around the pool. Today Palm Springs is a destination for meetings and events more than ever, seducing planners with 350 days of sunshine a year and abundant golf, shopping and desert curiosities. The Saguaro features several flexible event space options and is ready to host your event, whether it's hosted in our garden courtyard, in a private dining room or around the pool. ... more   less
