We travel between our Arizona home and Santa Barbara rental quite often and wanted a place near half-way to break up the drive that would also accommodate our Labradoodle. We discovered the Saguaro Palm Springs last year and have stayed there several times since. The staff is great, service excellent and the rooms although small are quite comfortable. We have... More

I had originally booked the Ace Hotel, but my reservation was cancelled as they had a problem with their pool so I quickly re booked the Saguaro. I stayed here in October 2013 and have only just realised I didn't write a review. I feel like I should because it was great! The service was fantastic, when we checked in,... More

My family and I stayed at the Saguaro Palm Springs over the 4th of July. We were staying at another hotel in the downtown area and just were not happy, we called the Saguaro and they were able to accommodate us. THANK GOD because my kids were not happy. The Saguaro staff was inviting, professional, and welcoming. The pool staff... More

Tried the hotel out with young kids, we spent a lot of time at the pool - it was very inexpensive, it was clean and the kids loved the bright and cheery atmosphere. I liked parking my car very close to the room, which was also close to the pool area so everything was convenient. This is not a high... More

Friendly professional staff, beautifully kept pool and "the" most comfortable bed kept me happy all weekend. Breakfast omelette was superb! We stayed during a weekend pool party, we were warned ahead.... Even so, the hotel was well staffed, and it turned out to be a fantastic stay!

We were looking for a place that would accept our 77lb four-legged furry child (aka dog). This was the only decent resort in Palm Springs that didn't charge exorbitant fees or have size/weight restrictions. We also booked a deal on the hotel website, pay for two nights and get the third free. Upon check-in we felt very welcomed and we... More

Comfortable beds, balconies or patios off of every room, strong air-conditioners, clean rooms, poolside bar and room service. All the basic requirements for a palm springs hotel. Large pool nonetheless gets very crowded on weekends and the place does tend to attract a young college-aged party crowd (no judgement if that's what you're looking for).

It is a resort type hotel in a sprawling double-storey building. Rooms have balconies. What catches eye is the riot of colors in all bands of VIBGYOR all over – the reception area, corridors, rooms, furniture and bed linens. This gives a vibrant feel of the whole environment. Inside the rooms, the furniture, lights, cups and glasses are differently designed.... More

When this hotel opened, it was a great alternative to the overpriced Ace Hotel a few blocks over. Now, it seems it has turned into a "Spring Break" summer option for everyone from the Inland Empire.

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
