My wife and I just returned from five wonderful days at the Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs. The pool and patio are the centerpiece of the hotel with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Here you will find young children, 20/30/40 somethings and older folks co-existing happily. The staff is attentive, friendly and never intrusive. It is almost always clear... More

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the ambiance. The hotel has colourful and modern decor. Rooms were clean and comfy, updated. Pool area lovely, lots of loungers and umbrellas, staff friendly. All of the food we had at Tinto and poolside was good. Even when some larger groups were a little raucous in the later afternoon, our nights were undisturbed.Would... More

We were greeted first outside by the shuttle driver then inside by a lovely lady serving complementary cocktails. Our multi-colored room faced the expansive inside courtyard with pool, bar, and boce ball areas all beautifully landscaped as seen fom our balcony. Free parking surounds the building.

It's really good to be informed before going on vacation - we knew that this hotel was formerly a motel/Holiday Inn. They have reprinted it colorfully & added a lively social scene. But the architecture of the building didn't change. We also knew there was the resort fee, so that was no surprise. In return, there was a pool, lots... More

We recently spent 5 nights here as a break from our rainy NW weather and were pleasantly surprised at the value for the money. The staff were all very friendly. We were initially given a ground floor room with no view. I had booked a room with a mountain view. We were quickly switched to another room without any hassles.... More

Nice redo on a generic former budget hotel.. Lively colors are fun. No vending and limited food offerings on site. Guests are forced to go to the restaurant for an expensive soda. Better to grab something off property on your way in or out.

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
