This is the loudest, least relaxing places i have ever been too. We didn't even spend the night because the DJ was so freakin loud. My head was pounding. We had to speak loudly in our room! Never even got in the pool because it was too crowded and loud and ate the most expensive street tacos ever. Not to... More

Dear Sveval; Thank you for reviewing the Saguaro, Palm Springs on tripadvisor. We apologize the music was to loud for your liking. We do monitor the sound level and keep it under a set decibel meter reading. Weekdays during the summer at the Saguaro offer a more serene pool environment as we do have Dj's spinning poolside from 11am-5pm on... More

I must say we did not know what to expect with this hotel, but the pictures we had seen it did look quiet nice. The room was quiet big, but all the furniture was very basic and was painted in bright colours, red, green, yellow, shall I go on, I mean bright colours. The hotels looks nothing like the photos...

Love the vibrant colors of this place. The pool area... The mexican diner... The ping-pong tables.. Its bright and playful. Can't go wrong with a concept like that! Sure, the hotel itself is old with a makeover. However, I didn't think it bothered. The decor is nicely executed and the walls are not paper thin in my opinion.

Sagurao is hip and loud. People in tight clothes and high heels rub elbows in by the pool and in the restaurant. The rooms are colorful and cheery to the point of a color heart attack.

This was our second stay at the Saguaro; the first was two years ago around the time it opened. We have been pleased both times, but the hotel seems to be in need of some basic maintenance these days. Front desk is professional and helpful.

Saguaro is definitely a uniquely styled hotel. It was a last minute booking for us since we had our dog and they are very pet friendly. We saw at least 3 or 4 other dogs there.

Initially we were planning to drive all the way to Las Vegas, but neither one of us wanted to drive so far. Instead we drove less than two hours to Palm Springs.

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
