The Saguaro Palm Springs

Palm Springs, USA

The hotel

The strapline, ‘Pina Coladas for breakfast – no judgements’, sets the feel-free-to-just-be tone of the Saguaro (that’s Sa-Wah-Roh, pronunciation fans). This rainbow-coloured oasis – just a hop and a skip from downtown Palm Springs – has everything you might need wrapped up a Pinata-bright Mexi-Cali package that’s as cheerful as it is chic. It’s no wonder the Saguaro has backdropped numerous fashion mag shoots in its time. But even if the only runway you’ve ever graced is at Heathrow you owe it to yourself to hit the Saguaro. Test the tacos and sample the ceviche at the El Jefe restaurant, perfect your Upward Facing Two Foot Staff in one of the daily yoga classes, or simply take the short trip from your balcony to the pool, frozen daiquiri in hand, and blisss out under the desert sun.

Pool area is really fun guests are very friendly and the staff is top-notch. One member in particular his name is AJ works at the front desk. I am also in the hospitality industry and I know that it can be difficult sometimes. He is a rockstar. Very kind and goes above and beyond. I hope you will have a long career at the Saguaro Read less

My first impression upon checkin was that the hotel overall on the inside is dirty and had a weird smell. The AC in our room was not cold. We even had to call to have someone come look at it. The walls, floors and just about everything is paper thin. You can hear people walking above you and having normal conversation. With that said, we received… Read more
My first impression upon checkin was that the hotel overall on the inside is dirty and had a weird smell. The AC in our room was not cold. We even had to call to have someone come look at it. The walls, floors and just about everything is paper thin. You can hear people walking above you and having normal conversation. With that said, we received a call in the morning that they received a "noise complaint" that we were running and jumping in our room and that if they need to tell us again we could get kicked out! We were so mad. Never have I ever had any issues in any hotel and we have never ran, jumped or even made noise for that matter. The way the staff handled the situation was insulting to us and we would never ever stay or visit this hotel again. Be warned, spend extra money and stay elsewhere. Read less
