4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My friends and I visited on the last night of our girls trip and had a fantastic time. The pool was beautiful and a great break from the heat, and we loved the free apps and wine at "Wine Wednesday." Proximity to old town is great. Only negative is that hallways and some of the room fixtures are a little... More

The hotel is really cute with lots of potential! Check in was really easy and accommodating. We stayed in a suite to accommodate our party of five. Really adorable rooms. After getting to the room and setting up for a surprise birthday party our air went out. I called down to the front desk. They quickly sent someone out to... More

We were watching The Open Championship on television and chose to order in so as not to miss any of the great golf. Sunday morning room service was excellent. Our breakfast was delivered hot, as if we were being served in the dining room.

My daughter and I came here for a quick midweek staycation. Found a deal on Travelzoo that morning, which eliminated the resort fee and gave us free breakfast. Which made up for the fact that during our entire visit we never had hot water for showers, water was ALWAYS cold. Our last day they shut off the water entirely, staff... More

I arrived here after spending a few nights at a deluxe resort in Paradise Valley, and although that hotel was lovely in so many ways, I prefer this hotel for its sunshine & funk and for its location.

High rating because the staff was so kind and helpful in every way. Fun concept with all the bright colors, lending a cheery atmosphere. Needs paint job desperately, but otherwise very clean and kept. Two pool options is nice.

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 you 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 2011• 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.
