Saguaro is definitely a unforgettable place to stay in Palm Springs. The hotel itself is nicely decorated and has a lot of fabulous amenities. It's usually hard to find a decent looking hotel that allows dogs & this place is an added bonus because they're dog friendly without additional cost- how amazing is that?!

Dear Sunnie D,Thank you so much for candor. It is evident that you enjoyed the amenities that we offer and most specially our amazing pet policy. We pride ourselves on not charging our guest for their pet as they are really part of the family and in an effort to continuously do better we are coming up with additional amenities... More

I enjoyed staying at the Saguaro, the hotel was very colorful. The Hotel is not walking distance to downtown Palm Springs, they do have a shuttle to the downtown. The grounds of the hotel and pool area were well taken care of. The staff was very nice and accommodating. There is an extra resort fee that you are charged so... More

Dear Rob R, The suites are definitely nice and have great views depending on what area of the property you are in. You are right we are very colorful 14 colors to be exact. I love our colors and they just make most of our guests smile, because who would have thought to do such an amazing design and then... More

Lively decor, friendly staff. Didn't make it to the restaurant or spa facilities but they have a good reputation. I wish that they did not have that mandatory facilities fee. The location probably requires you to drive if you want to go downtown, at least in the summer heat.

Dear Roamer099, We are so pleased that you stayed with us and that the staff was able to meet your needs. I highly suggest that next time you are in town that you start with getting a massage as it will leave you relaxed and ready for a good meal. The food is amazing! From Tinto with its Spanish style...

Loved the room (spacious, clean, bright, cheerful), and found it to be very quiet (on a sold out weekend!). Views are beautiful from the balcony, and the colors of the hotel really pop against the blue sky. I thought I would find the colors distracting, but they're super beautiful and works well with the backdrop. Fantastic mixologists in the bar,... More

You can't help but feel happy when you step into the Saguaro Palm Springs. The playful decor does not prepare one for how serious they take the food and drink!

The Saguaro is an interesting breed of Scottsdale stay; it's definitely a remolded locale in the vein of neuvo colors and modern (ala Ikea) decor. While that sounds off on paper (er, screen), it works quite well in-person as every square foot of the property breathes personality. I was especially smitten with the signature lobby hushed with both dark and... More

Got a deal on Groupon for one night here...worth the price. Nice colorful hotel with awesome pool/hot tub area. Great mountain view. Colorful decor and very comfortable beds. Good on property restaurant - Tinto. If you are looking for a place to crash while you explore Palm Springs, this is a good option.
