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.

It is 2.5 miles from the main shopping area, if u have plan to go there. Bike rentals are available on site. Would recommend this spot. And would… Read more

The Saguaro is unique in its presentation. The retro design and style of this place is awe-inspiring. The staff is hospitable, there are plenty of spaces to just hang out, a really fun bar, and awesome pool/jacuzzi. It has a very minimal style so it’s not a place that has all of the bells and whistles. It’s a fun spot to visit.

This hotel is the 70s glam Palm Springs dream! Not only was the hotel super cute, the hotel provided a very nice pool, spa & a couple awesome restaurants/bars. They also have a shuttle that brings you right into downtown free of charge! They will even pick you up too! Even after the trip, Amanda followed up with me to make sure I enjoyed myself. I will definitely be returning! Read less

I have stayed at the Saguaro before. At that time, 4-5 years ago, the decor felt a bit run down and faded. You could tell people had been partying it up... this time I got a suite on the 3rd floor. Everything felt fresh and New. The bed was suuuper Comfy. One of the best beds I’ve slept in in a long time! The pool area is nice too. Parking is… Read more

Everything felt fresh and New. The bed was suuuper Comfy. One of the best beds I’ve slept in in a long time! The pool area is nice too. Parking is abundant. The only thing is that service (or rather the kitchen) at El jeffe is to very slow. We waited 55 min for tacos. Hello?! All in all I do love this hotel a lot. Go enjoy! Read less
