Scottsdale is the place to go for art, shopping and nightlife in the Valley of the Sun. Now there's a hotel creating even more desire around the desert experience. The Saguaro has arrived, bringing with it a new look to where Old Town, the Arts district and Civic Center Mall meet. Bright, lush and vibrant, it's a fresh face amid Scottsdale's buzzing downtown scene. Guestrooms & Suites: The Saguaro experience begins, fittingly enough, outside amid the arid weather and brilliant sunlight of the Sonoran Desert. Each room exterior is accented by the color of a native desert flower, creating a visual spectrum throughout the resort grounds. Inside, your room's primary color is joined by contemporary and natural furnishings in wood and leather, including hand-crafted pieces imported from Mexico. Services & Amenities: A stay here is about relaxation, nature and yes, our two famous pools. Both are easy walks from every room, heated and ringed by cabanas. The Saguaro Spa welcomes you to de-stress even further. When it's time to recharge, the comprehensive fitness center will get you looking your best for around the poolside bar. Guestroom Amenities• All rooms renovated October 2016• Flat screen, wall mounted 42" HDTVs• Authentic, traditional Mexican furniture • Views of Old Town and Civic Center park (select rooms)• Outdoor patios or step out balconies • Soaking tubs and separate shower (suites)• Work desks• Wireless Internet• Stereo with iPod docking station• On-demand movies and music. Meetings: It's the weather. The golf courses: The deals closed over cocktails by the pool. Whatever the reason, Scottsdale is a top choice for corporate gatherings. The Saguaro provides over 15,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, with wraparound patios, fireplaces, and a fire pit. We're ready to make your event a strategic success. Scottsdale's business climate is dynamic.

Spent a girls getaway night for my sister's birthday here in one of the poolside rooms. Nice upgrade, friendly staff. Had a great time! Pool is awesome with great music playing during the day. Perfect location in the heart of Old Scottsdale! Next time we'll stay longer than 1 night!

We stayed three days as we are waiting for the house to sell and at first our room wasn’t the best but Mia made sure we got a pool front bottom level appropriate room to compensate. Mia was amazing with her extra an exponential customer service, she went above and beyond more than I’ve had at a five-star resort. Once we found out that something wasn’t right Clint the manager, was absolutely above and beyond! Filled with customer service and at the end of our checkout, truly cared about our stay. We will return next week because of them! Thank youMia and Clint for making our stay feel like we were guests at your home. Sooo comfortable and relaxed.

Pros: Great location just across from the old town area. The pool area was large and well kept with poolside food and drink service. Friendly staff throughout. Cons: This very large property feels like it was formerly a run down place that was "fixed up" on a budget. The beds were full sized, not queen even though there was enough space for queen rooms. The decor was strange. There was a sheer curtain on one wall that blocked access to the outlets. Popcorn ceilings. The first time we tried to shower the shower was broken and a maintenance person had to come fix it. He was nice and it was fixed in about 20 minutes, but still. The bathroom was small with minimal counter space. The bathroom door was barn style and did not close all the way. The balconies are strange. They are very small, too small for any furniture. There is barely enough space to stand out there. I stayed with two girlfriends and the overall consensus was that the location and pool made up for any shortcomings. I would stay there again, although the rooms could benefit from some changes.
